Wiring a Fridgidaire electric glass cooktop

I have an older electric 30" glass cooktop that I want to install in my laminate counter. It has an armour cable 3 (stranded wire).
I currently have a 8/3 wire at my wall location. Can I connect to it and what breaker amp should be used?
Thanks.

The # 8 can be protected with a 40 amp maximum two pole breaker. What size does the cooktop call for?

The connections will need to be made in an accessible junction box.
