Fridge breakdowns (as in the contents going off) is usually covered under house contents insurance. As for the rest of it the general view is it is a waste of money.......

General view I know of! (extended warranties and all that - highly inflated prices and the chance of it going wrong isn't that great - in theory!)

Be careful, on a slightly different note, we took out a 5 year warranty for our new Dyson for £50. Which was sold to us as use or re-claim the £50 back after 5 years, great - not! They actually ask you to send off a portion of the warranty to validate the 5 year warranty and don't return it. To claim your £50 back you have to, arh yes, send off the part of the warranty that you did 5 years ago, that wasn't returned. Thanks, talk about day light robbery.
