Advice on flush mounted cooktop

Posted by repac (My Page) on

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!

RE: Advice on flush mounted cooktop

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.

RE: Advice on flush mounted cooktop

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?
