It's not unusual for people to use the same term to describe very different cooktops in the kitchen. Steelmade Flat Tops are designed specifically to work on standard 30" Gas and Electric (coil or glass) Ranges. If you have a drop-in cooktop on your counter or a Range that is larger or smaller than the standard 30" variety, we offer Custom Flat Top fabrication to fit those stoves.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE COMPATIBILITY OF YOUR COOKTOP PLEASE CONTACT US AND WE'LL BE HAPPY TO CONFIRM!
What is a Range?
A Range is an all-in-one cooking solution that is by far the most common type of cooking appliance in the U.S. It is a floor-standing oven that has a cooktop built into the top. These are available in gas and electric and commonly measure 30" across. Steelmade Flat Tops are almost universally compatible with these.
What is a Cooktop?
These are separate, countertop-mounted cooktops that are not connected to an oven. They are available in an endless variety of sizes and configurations. In almost all cases a Custom Flat Top is required to work properly on these kinds of cooktops.
