Just purchased a new home with a 30" Electrolux Electric Cooktop and want to swap it out for a 30" Electrolux Induction Cooktop. It is installed in a Quartz island and so am concerned about the size of the cutout. The installation instructions indicate the dimensions for the Electric are slightly different than the Induction so am wondering if anyone has any experience with this sort of a swap and how critical the dimensions are. I am unable to measure the actual cutout as I'm in a different city.

Electric Width required 29 3/4" to 30"
Induction Width required 29 5/8" to 29 3/4"

Electric depth required 20 3/8" to 20 5/8"
Induction depth required 20 3/8" to 20 1/2"

It would seem that the depth shouldn't be an issue, but the width, assuming the hole is built to spec, could be out by 1/4". Anyone know how critical this could be?

Thanks in advance.
