  • How to make the opening size for a CG Gas Cooktop Contemporary opening


The opening for the Contemporary CG Gas Cooktop is 35" x 20" for standard installation.

  • Flush installation cutout width is 35" x 20" with 36" x 21" for the recess opening.
  • These exact dimensions are suggested for proper installation.
  • The cutout width cannot be smaller than 36" x 21" for flush inset.
  • The 36" CG Contemporary Gas Cooktop measures 35-15/16" W x 6-3/4" H x 20-15/16" D.
  • The cutout width can be larger than 36" x 21", but a larger opening will create a larger gap.
  • For a typical installation, the distance from the front of the countertop to the front edge of the cooktop is 3-1/2".
    • This depth may be adjusted from a minimum of 2" to a maximum of 5".
    • Do not remove the zip ties that hold the ACDC rectifiers to the manifold.
    • If the excess tail end of the zip tie interferes with the installation, it can be removed.
  • Do not use the cooktop as a template to plan the cutout opening size.
