Protect your investment with KitchenCare’s Extended Warranty program

Give yourself peace of mind by protecting your equipment investment with a Welbilt KitchenCare Extended Warranty. An extended warranty allows operators to manage repair costs beyond the original manufacturers warranty, including parts and labor.

Your Welbilt KitchenCare extended warranty coverage, including all terms and conditions, is identical to the Welbilt factory warranty that you received when you purchased your equipment. This full factory warranty would now be extended by one extra year from the effective start date of that warranty.

Enhanced Customer Responsiveness

Every savings opportunity counts and finding ways to put additional dollars on your bottom line is why KitchenConnect was developed. With features to save you valuable time and resources, we start saving you money from day one.

KitchenConnect delivers affordable peace of mind, less equipment downtime, and a more efficient restaurant than you ever thought possible.

Energized by Emerson

KitchenConnect utilizes Emerson Climate Technologies Intelligent Store™ infrastructure to build connected kitchens. Intelligent Store infrastructure includes: latest machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity, internet-of-things (IoT) cloud applications, building systems controls and situational analysis technicians.
