Our experienced gas fitters can help you choose the cut-out size for your cooktop, which is ideally 20mm to 40mm smaller than the overall dimension. It is ideal to look for a gas cooktop that has the same size or slightly larger than your existing cooktop as it is easy to trim a bit more bench top to make it fit.
