Replacing electric cooktop frustration...

Posted by auntie_ellen (My Page) on

I have an old (10 yo) 36 inch Jenn Aire electric cooktop set in granite. One of the 4 working burners partially broke a few years ago and rather than paying hundreds to fix it, I thought I'd replace it with induction.

I'm amazed at the lack of consistency in cutout sizes required among the various models (even withing the same manufacturer). It makes replacing broken things rather limiting without additional granite tweaking. I wish I had thought of this when I chose a cooktop vs. standard range. I also had a problem when one of my 2 dishwashers broke and had to be replaced with a similar (but not identical) model and was within 6 feet of its sibling - It's since broken again so I'm now getting 2 new Bosch dws (fingers crossed).

Anyone else have this frustration? How did you deal with it? TIA
