My 30+ year old GE oven finally bit the bullet. Gotta replace it. It's a 27" (nominal) drop-in unit. That is, it is supported by an opening in the counter that acts as cleats, with about 3" air space concealed on each side. It is suspended off of the floor, with a kickplate to close the opening below. I want to remove this oven and replace it with a 30" free-standing unit. What I would like to do is carefully cut the countertop material and apply an edging that matches the rest of the cabinetry, as well as carefully removing front "carcase" parts. Theoretically, my new oven would simply slide into the new opening. Sounds pretty straight-foward to me, but I wonder what pitfalls I might run into in this process. Has anyone had any experience doing what I want to do, or something like it? By the way, I am an avid baker, and I sure do miss my oven. Breads just aren't the same coming out of my smaller convection oven. Thanks so much... EdP
