Advice on flush mounted cooktop

repacMarch 11, 2013

I'm trying to figure out how "flush" a flush-mounted cooktop should be. We just had a Wolf induction cooktop flush mounted in a granite countertop. The cooktop is nearly flush all the way around, but there is some lippage about half way around (back and part of two sides). It's probably about 1/16 to 1/8 inch higher than the countertop on the lippage. Is this as good as I should expect for flush? Also, will the cooktop settle after I start cooking with pots and pans on it? The cooktop was "shimmed" with a foam filler (from Wolf).

Thanks for any help you can give me!

flush is flush.

it should not be proud or low and even more important is it should be consistent.

If it were all 1/16 high or low it wouldn't be that bad , but when only part of it is.................yuck.

As xedos says, flush means flush. Not over, not under, uniform with the countertop.

If the cooktop is not supported by a perfectly flat and even surface, you risk cracking the surface.

The installer said it's very difficult to do a flush installation. He and his asst spent 3 hours over two trips installing it. Does that sound reasonable for a flush mount? Now that it's installed, would it be difficult to take out the sealer and redo it?
