Thanks Jean,
It is an odd size but you can check with local appliance sales shops
Or you can do what I did. I faced the same issue once so I added a piece of formica counter top to the area where extra space was. It looked great and was cheaper than trying to remodel by far and super easy to do;-)
I will assist you with doing that if you would like?
I will stick with you until this is fixed, please don't forget to rate my service to you before you close this page. I will be available to you at no additional cost , you can then get in touch with me anytime by simply replying to this message.
Thank you Jean and have a great day!

Hello Jean, my name is***** you need to ask for more info, please do. Kindly be patient whilst awaiting responses, I'm only here part-time.

Can you tell me if you have the sizes for the cutout that the hob sits in to, as these will differ dramatically from the actual size of the hob?
