Michael - thanks so much for the information. Until I go into the store, the only cooktop that we found similar to hers is this one-a Kenmore but not Kenmore Elite. You are right - it is not all flush to the countertop
. The grates sit directly on the cooktop - no drip pans. She said the name of her is the Kenmore Elite Ceramic Gas Cooktop. My son has been sick for two weeks
- so I have not been able to get out of the house. I was just hoping since Sears is a national brand - I could find it somewhere on the internet - weird, isn't it?
Anyways, thank you for your help.
