I beg to differ on the drop in cooktops. Every 4 burner unit I have seen is a standard 30" unit, the dimensions were all the same. There are some larger units that fit in a 36" opening, and they seem to come in different depths, but all the 30" ones I looked at, whether gas or electric all had the same rough opening. I bought a JennAir unit since those have been around the longest and seem to have a good repitation, and they are the only gas units that have exchangeable modules that are easy to get. I think GE has some as well, but arent locally available.

** I beg to differ on the drop in cooktops. **

The OP was asking about drop-in ranges not cooktops. Here are some counter cutout dimension examples for 30" drop-in range models:

Depth, Opening 21-5/8 in.
Height, Opening 29 in.
Width, Opening 29 in.

GE Profile
Height, Opening 27-1/4 in.
Width, Opening 30 in.

Height, Floor to Countertop 30-3/4 in.
Width, Opening 29-3/8 in.

Depth 26-1/4 in.
Height to Cooktop 29-7/16 in.
Width 30 in.

Depth, Opening 23-1/4 in.
Height, Floor to Countertop 27-1/2 in.
Height, Opening 27-1/2 in.
Width, Opening 30 in.

But event for 30" electric cooktops the cutouts are different:

Depth, Opening 18-5/8 in.
Width, Opening 28-7/8 in.

Depth, Opening 20-1/2 in.
Width, Opening 29-1/2 in.

Depth, Opening 19-5/8 in.
Width, Opening 28-1/2 in.

Depth, Opening 21-1/8 in.
Width, Opening 28-7/8 in.

Depth, Opening 20-5/8 in.
Width, Opening 28-7/8 in.


Depth, Opening 20-1/4 in.
Width, Opening 29-5/8 in.

You'll note that even 2 different models both by KitchenAid even require different size cutouts!
