36" Gas cooktop ok in laminate?
From a functional perspective, is there any reason a 36" gas cooktop (Bosch) couldn't be used with a laminate countertop? Our current 30" electric cooktop sits on laminate, but I imagine our larger, gas cooktop could generate more heat. Our appliances and cabinets are in the garage, awaiting installation in the coming weeks, and we are going round and round about countertop material, from granite, to Corian, to laminate and back round again. I honestly like the forgiving nature of laminate (with kids and glasses and being able to replace in 5 years if we tire of it or wear it out), and am swinging back in this direction but had this question about the cooktop. I know it's not a high status product, but I'm ok with that as my priority is the function of my kitchen.
