cooktop installation


Instead of using silicone to seal the cooktop border to the granite, what other type of sealant i can use to seal the cooktop to the countertop???? My past experience is that silicone was really hard to take out when my cooktop broke. Someone recommended a adhesive strip that goes between the cooktop and the granite but I haven't found anything on that, and the guys at home depot and lowe's don't know a thing.... help please

Do you mean something like this?

If that's what you had in mind Google the following terms:
"Strip Caulk"
"Caulk Strip"

cooktop installation


here's one that says can be used in the kitchen

This stuff seems like it's meant more for the joint at a wall and counter but you may be able to use it for what you have in mind.

I myself have been thinking of what to do w/ that space between the glass cooktop and counter and might consider this one. The caulk that's there now is looking really old.

I don't see the need to seal the cooktop to the counter.

cooktop installation


The house we live in has a Jenn-Air electric cooktop that was not sealed. My husband was cooking pasta and the water boiled over and got into the electrical system and shorted it out. It now does not work...so yes it should be sealed.
