Switching a 27" slide-in range for 30" range

We have currently a 27" slide in range that we would like to replace with a standard 30" range. I was wondering what would be involved in doing that. I know that is pretty open ended. Ask questions, give options, any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Cut down or remove and replace the cabinets & counter tops on one side or both.

If you want your hood to match do the same.

What Griz said. We have the exact same issue in our kitchen. Our hood is a 30", centered over a 27" slide-in. We HATE it. We've hated it for the nearly 15 years we've owned this house and planned to get rid of it from day 1. But then the company who was going to reface our cabinets (who's salesman told us no problem) refused to do it - so we told them to take a hike. Our cabinets have still not been refaced. From then on it was grin and bear it and occasionally get a contractor to look at it...but they all say the same thing, we have about 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 inches of overhang before the end of the cabinets that could be cut off...but that's not enough as the smallest 30" range is actually 29 7/8". So the entire end of one or both cabinets on either side would need removed and the shelves cut down along with the cabinet, then the end would need to be replaced.

As we're considering selling soon, we've decided to let it be the next sucker's headache.
