induction cook top installation help
I am replacing a 30" Kenmore induction cook top with a 30" Bosch (I hope). The cutout in my Corian counter is too big for the Bosch. I am looking at 2 options:
1) Having a Corian patch installed to make the hole smaller.
The same color is still available. The seams will be just barely under the new cook top. I have only a ballpark quote -$500.
2) Having a stainless or aluminum rim fabricated to set in the hole to make it smaller. The ballpark quote is about $250. A metal fabricator is coming by on Tuesday to give me a specific quote and discuss options, eg. type of metal, whether a simple rectangular frame will be adequate or if angle-iron shaped collar is necessary for additional strength.
I would be grateful for any input.
