kitchen countertop

We have a new 2014 Georgetown 335 & just realized the opening on the countertop between the wall & the cooktop is not a vent. No one at the dealership explained this opening & we don't find anything in our manuals. Apparently the cooktop cover fits in this slot but when not in use, it's just an open area & not attractive. Have any other owners made use of this small space? If so, how?

That is what it is used for.
I think you also can place large knives and utensils in the slots

Really cool design. You can neatly drop the stove tops in there while using the stove. In our case, DW puts her cutting board in there also.

Is that the area you are speaking of?

Posts: 1,333's for the stove top covers. Others have posted they use it storing large/long knives etc. but if so, where do you put the stove top covers then?'s a narrow slot, but it's quite a long way to the bottom......just sayin'

We use it very handily to store a couple of cutting boards and a serving tray to take thinks outside on. Down side is when DW uses the cook top she'll lean the covers against the dinette booth. Same with the sink covers. Don't care for doing that with either, but what can a lowly husband do.

Those covers are a heavy nuisance so we keep them in the slot most of the time.

Thanks for sharing. We usually put the covers between the sofa & dinette. If we think of a clever use of this space, we'll let you know.

My new 2014 Georgetown has the same raw cut opening in the countertop. My husband used heavy black duck tape and lined the opening with the tape. It made the unsightly opening more discrete and less visible in the countertop. It also made the raw rough openings smoother. I do use the opening for it's intended purpose: storing the stovetop covers.
