    I'm thinking of getting the above hob which has one induction and 3 gas rings. According to the installation instructions, 2 brackets are screwed into the left and right sides of the cutout see here:

    http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/digitalassets/WINONLINE_EMEA/WP/WP_UK/WP_UK_DOCS/501961901340GB.pdf

    and the sides are then clipped into these brackets.
    I'm having a quartz worktop and have been advised against screwing into these sides. Whirlpool customer service is pretty poor and could not comment on installing into stone worktops.
    Is there a way of fixing these brackets without screwing - glueing perhaps?
    the worktop is 30mm

    This hob is a compromise as I don't have the required wiring to accomodate a 10kw induction hob plus 5kw oven and rewiring is too big a job

    thanks
