Countertop cutout too large for new cooktop

Just purchased a new cooktop to replace an old Whirlpool one and the cutout for the old Whirlpool is too large for my new GE, (and all others I have researched). Any suggestions how to remedy the problem would really be appreciated as all of my kitchen appliances are currently in the center of the floor. It's a black glass induction cooktop. My counters are granite.

Call a granite counter top company and ask if they can reduce the opening with out leaving a visible patch.

You can also have a metal fabricator cut a adapter ring out of stainless steel. It's basically just a rectangular piece of metal with the center cut out. The overall size is about the same as your old cooktop and the hole in the center is sized for your new cooktop.
