    For the gap between the cooker and the adjacent worktop

    Anybody seen these gap covers?

    made of silicone rubber I think

    this is from an American ad.

    We use a similar product for the edges suspended floors inside existing buildings. It's a closed cell silicon rubber foam. Comes as a self adhesive tape. Not certain about how durable they are, though

    Thanks

    but not quite the same thing, I think.

    the kitchen worktop strips are a flexible, solid, wipe-clean extrusion. To prevent crumbs, spills, grease and food scraps falling down the gap at the side of the cooker. There might be a video.

    As the gap surrounds the Cooker I would leave it open to allow cooking heat to dissipate same with Washing Machine,Tumble Drier, Dish Washer
