Granite countertop/Gas cooktop resizing

I have an old 30" Jenn-Air gas cooktop with downdraft that required an opening of 20 7/8" by 29 1/4" (current opening in the granite top). I have had no luck of looking new ones that could fit my current cutout depth 20-7/8". Most are now with standard cutout at 19-15/16". I've considered going with 36" cooktop, but they too are using smaller cutout. Is there a way to reduce my current opening, so that it could support loads? Or anyone knows a brand of gas cooktop with downdraft that's bigger than what I have? Thx!

Re: Granite countertop/Gas cooktop resizing

Chances are you can use the new stovetop. Just make sure the lip is wide enough to cover the opening. I've seen the granite guys epoxy boards in place for support. Sorry I don't know what they use but it's pretty strong. I've not seen one come loose.
