granite question with drop-in vs slide-in cooktops
I posted a similar question on the appliance forum:
Is there any cost-savings, granite-wise, if I go with a slide-in cooktop versus a drop-in cooktop? It looks like there would be, but I've never had granite--or a separate cooktop--before, so I don't know what all is involved, etc. I was wanting the slide-in, but got to comparing price and figured I could go with a 5-burner drop-in (36") for a lot less.....then got to wondering about the granite. If I use the slide-in, there'd just be 2 pieces of 3' granite each on either side of the cooktop. If I use the drop-in, I'd have to use the whole long slab, right?
