Gas Cooktop-Easier to clean SS/ black porcelain
Today I looked at some "deep sump" stainless gas drop-in cooktops. I'm wondering how easy these are to keep clean vs. the black surface of the slide-in range tops.
Specifically, right now I'm considering the Electrolux E36GC75ESS (36" slide-in )
or possibly the Electrolux E46GC66ESS 46" drop in cooktop.
I really want the slide-in, but will have to do additional cabinet work for the retro-fit. If I got the drop in, I can avoid the cabinet work, but don't think I'll like it nearly as much.
I think ease of clean will be the deal clincher for me. DH of course doesn't want to fool with cabinet work, but I want to know I'll love what we choose.
I currently have an old SS Jenn-Air unit that does have some discoloration on the stainless from over-heating, age, etc. which causes the concern about the drop-in. Besides great functionality, I do want it to age well.
I need some advice! Thanks!
