Answer: 
There is a dimension guide available from Home Depot or Maytag (both on line). My recollection is that you have the correct width and length, but you should refer to that guide and also make certain that you have adequate depth. It will also tell you the space requirements around the unit, which are very important for safety. I measured mine to be sure!

Do not measure the current appliance or go by a new product's dimensions. Rather, look at the product cutout dimensions to see if it will fit in the space provided or if slight modifications may be needed. Below are the cutout dimensions for the model Read More

What sizes are the 5 burners on this cooktop?

Description says "5 burners deliver 100-2350 watts". Does this mean Per Burner? Does not sound like enough power. Am comparing to the GE JP626BKBB which has 5600 - 7400 watts.

Answer: 
That reflects the variability with the dials. The overall wattage is 8,000 but will vary based on how many burners you are using and where the controls are set. The GE can certainly go lower than 5600 watts, otherwise you wouldn't have any control for simmer, etc. The two large burners are up to 2350W, the smaller ones up to 1500W, and the smallest ( the middle one) is 1200W maximum.

Linda,
Thank you for the questions and they bring up a valid point. The Maytag burner numbers, 100-2350 watts, are referring to each burner. The number GE is providing is the total output range for their model. For the burners on the Maytag Cooktop, the watts for each one is listed below. We appreciate your inquiry and look forward to having you as a Maytag customer.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good cooktop Easier to clean with the knobs being raised. The extra burner will come in very handy at times! I do wish the elements were better fastened down. Hope this lasts as long as my other cooktop (36 years) June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Buy Looks great! Easy install! Love the extra burner! Very affordable price! May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glad the Old One Broke Maytag coil range top is a very good product. It replaces a ceramic cooktop that we were never really happy with. Intallation was a little tricky, but the appliance works just fine. Very easy to keep clean...unexpected benefit. Escellent delivery service as well. The delivery service center was more than accommodating when we had to make changes in the scheduling. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stove top! This stove top is exactly what I was looking for. I had one of the flat top glass kind and didn't like it one bit. This stove top was "retro" looking and goes with my "retro" kitchen, it was pretty easy to install (I had to cut my counter top, but no biggie), and I have been enjoying cooking on it as well! It is easy to clean and water boils much faster on this than on my old cook top. LOVE IT! February 7, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome wonderful installed this about a month ago works great 5 eyes that cook evenly whole family loves it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase The delivery was excellent. The guys were most helpful. The range top is excactlly as advertised. Very easy to install, I did it in about 45 minutes and that included taking the old top out. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lots of Room and EASY Clean-up I love my new stove top. It is easy to keep clean, the surface is so smooth, spills wipe up the easiest I have ever seen, and I have had 6 kids, 38 years of marriage and seen a lot of stoves! Because of the button/knob placement it is easy to determine which goes with which burner, you don't even have to think about it or read anything! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] June 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 5 burner cooktop We had a ceramic cooktop previously which cracked. Repairing or replacing it was silly and we disliked the heat cycling off and on. This cooktop does the same job, cost 1/3 as much, installed in minutes, sits level on the counter - simple, easy to repair if that is ever needed, no special cleaners needed, and dead reliable. So nice to have something simple! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] May 20, 2016
