Engineered stone countertops, consisting of quartz particles with plastic binder and coloring agents. Installation in progress. Undermount sink opening is factory cut and polished. Basic opening for cooktop was cut by fabricator, but an additional 1/8 inch was trimmed in field to fit the pop-up vent. Thanks to our contractors for getting this in before Christmas.

Specify a minimum of twenty four inches of landing space on the counter on one side of the sink and at least eighteen inches on the other. If you are going to skimp on any of the recommended widths I would not recommend allowing this to be the space that is compromised. The sink is a highly used area in any kitchen.
