I purchased this to fill the narrow gaps around my Wolf Duo-Fuel range. These stainless strips are a close match in color, and the price was so much lower than ordering the Wolf brand. I am pleased with the quality, but the product did take some modification as it was 1/2 inch too long to rest properly on the stove in my application..
Regarding the length, the product can be trimmed with a hacksaw, but you will also need some metal files to smooth the rough edges so the edge doesn’t scratch your stove. There were a couple of rough places on the underside of the untrimmed edge as well that I filed. Because of the way they are constructed, the metal is folded over on one side to create the tab that goes down in the gap. Consequently, one edge is very slightly thicker than the other edge, which is flat. I noted is that the strips are not mirror images of each other, so that means when you put them on your stove, the thicker edge is on the stove side on one side and on the outside on the other. Because the front edge is slightly rounded at the corners, you cannot reverse these when you install them. That said, the difference really isn’t that noticeable when they are in place.
Regarding the comments that these don’t cover the gap, that depends on how big the gap is. Most stove installations should have just a little extra width between the edge of the counter and the stovetop. For example, my opening is only about 1/8 to 3/16 inches on each side and the gap is very narrow. Th whole strip is about 11/16 inches wide, so it fits perfectly. If the gap is bigger than 1/4 inch on each side you may be cutting it close as that little tab that goes in the gap is not exactly in the center of the strip. I used the foam tape that came with the strips but only attached them on the strip and did not peel the tape off the adhesive on the other side. That was enough to keep the strips wedged snugly in place but allow for them to be removed for cleaning. I found that without the tape, the strips slide back and forth whenever you are wiping then down to clean the stovetop.
Finally, your stovetop has to be be exactly the same height as the counter for the strips to rest flat on the stove. It sounds easy enough to just level the stove, but that’s no guarantee that your floor is perfectly flat or that your counters are perfectly level. It took a lot of fine adjustments and leveling to get it just right, but in the end, I am pleased with the result and would purchase the product again.
