I am getting to the final stages of fitting my kitchen and have just had the worktops installed (Quartz) and now am trying to fit the Induction hob.
The hob (NUTID HIN4T) came with 4 metal clips that will grip the side of the cut out and secure the hob in place.
My concern is that theres no form of seal on the bottom of the glass where it makes contact with the worktop and the instructions don't suggest any sealant should be used.
Surely any spillage will creep under the hob if there isn't any form of sealant?
I have also read posts elsewhere that say silicone should not be used as the glass needs to expand when it gets heated. But it also seems that other hobs have a rubber seal supplied with the hob (which the ikea one does't have!)
Has anyone else had any experience fitting this type of hob who can help?
Any time we have installed a cooktop, it has come with a small foam strip. In the directions for yours, it is not mentioned. My recommendation is to contact the manufacturer, and ask if you could apply a small weather seal from a local hardware store. That would be all you really need.
