Need opening on quartz counter made smaller for new cooktop

I have a quartz countertop on my kitchen island and I need to replace my Miele 36 1/2 induction cooktop. The cut out hole in the countertop is 36 1/16. Most models now have a width cut out specification between 34" and 35 1/2". The depth is still pretty close to the original cut out dimension. Is there some way to support the bottom of the existing hole and possibly trim out the top to fit a new model that is slightly smaller? The existing cooktop has a surface area of 36 1/2", while most models today are exactly 36". I really don't want to have to replace my countertop!

Unfortunately, there is no way to stretch quartzand jointing a piece in is ugly. The best way to accomplish wwhat you are looing for is to add a piece of quartz to the countertop with the new hole cut into it. As long as the color quartz you have can be obtained from the manufacturer, it can be a very classy look.
