4 to 5 stars. The gas connection is sturdy if connecting a straight line connection. But when using an elbow, there’s too much torque at the bend, which can ratchet around the fitting, loosening the connection. I think repeated expansion/contraction cycling from heating/cooling at this junction will loosen the connection over time. Mine leaked from the start, (“professionally” installed by gas company because I needed the permit and record to comply with state law and for insurance; I didn’t even bother calling them back, instead doing the work the right way myself). When moving the flexible gas line slightly a few times while securing it underneath, this movement was enough to loosen the elbow, even after tightening the connection tightly. I built a bracket to hold the entire elbow and gas line in one place, with everything tightened up. No leaks and very secure underneath. Up top at the countertop, the closed foam strips used under the cooktop edges, at countertop, are good for padding. Over time, liquids could soak into the foam stripping, leaving bacteria. So, after securing the cooktop in place, I added a small bead of silicone seal all around the cooktop, to keep liquids from seeping under it and into the closed foam seal.Nice cooktop, heats food with very little waste heat. For lighting burners, the approx. 4 seconds holding down control knob while safety components heat up is easy once I got used to it. Most gas ignition systems have this wait nowadays, for flame out safety protection. Both burners needed adjustment to lower the flame levels at lowest setting. An adjustment screw for this is inside the stem of each control pod. After pulling the knob up and off, the small access hole is right at the top of the stem. You will need a long thin flat head screwdriver to insert down the shaft to the screw. you can see the small screw head down there if you shine a small flashlight light point and use a magnifying glass to look. Remember position of screw, then insert screwdriver oriented same direction and connect with screw. You will feel the fit when screwdriver is seated. Turning clockwise reduces flame size, counterclockwise increases it. Don’t push down hard as you turn screw, as this will reduce flame size temporarily until you release pressure. For a screwdriver, I bought a Master Mechanic 3/32 screwdriver at True Value Hardware, and ground down the screwdriver shank until it fit easily into the control stem hole. Shank should be 2 inches long to reach bottom. EXCELLENT customer service. I emailed asking if the cooktop can be lit with a match or lighter, if power outage (Yes, you can light it with a match when power is out). Emailed on a Friday late. Next day, Saturday, a rep. called me at home and left a detailed explanation message, gave his direct line phone number to call with any further questions. I’m very happy with this cooktop and the company.

I was very excited to set this up and get it going. Upon opening the box I noticed there was damage to the stove top, but it was not that huge so I didn’t care too much, then I notice that the fittings I need are not in the box. After going to almost every major hardware store, I still was not able to find the fittings needed and had to contact Amazon two times and both times they tried to contact RAMBLEWOOD Manufacturer and did not get a response. I don’t usually write too many reviews on here but this is bad customer support on RAMBLEWOODS end. I have bought many propane appliances and never had an issue hooking up to a propane tank until I bought this one. The manual does not state anything and the reviews on here are all different. After doing a little bit more research with the help of Amazon it seems that the missing part that’s needed is a female 1/2 npt to 3/8ths npt which is the standard size for the majority of propane appliances, but this item WAS NOT included as stated in other reviews. I would not recommend this stove to anyone unless they’re experienced with gas line fittings/connections and the only way my 1 star review will change is if i get reimbursed for the damage and missing fittings from RAMBLEWOOD and not AMAZON because this is NOT Amazon’s fault. I was looking to purchase the electric one RAMBLEWOOD sells and I am so glad I didn’t purchase both at the same time, I purchased the propane version first to see if the company was worthy of almost $300 more and from what it looks like, it’s not. Want a better review? Reimburse me for the damaged product and get me the correct fitting and then we can talk…

Customer Questions & Answers


What’s min clearance above a drawer? You say 3.5 inches below the counter. Does this include the 1 inch of clearance you rec? So is it 4.5 or 3.5?
Answer: It’s about 3.5 inches under the counter top table bottom. It’s an estimation to allow you to address the gas hose. This space does not taken account for the pressure regulator which comes in different size, & it’s always attached to the gas tank.

my cut up counter top is 191/4 x11/12 will this gas top fit into my couonter top
Answer: Hi, the countertop cutout dimension is: 268 X 480 mm, (10.5 inch x 18.9 inch)

does this unit come with a regulator if not what do I need?
Answer: Unit does come with a regulator.

I would like to install in a granite countertop cabinet. What are the cutout dimensions (length and width) besides needing 3.5″ below.
Answer: Cutout size is 480mmX268mm and I have reduced the price on my listing by 20%. The box contains a template and I can send you a photo of the template but the numbers I Listed are correct for top mounting.

Is it CSA approved? Does it have a “c” infront of the ETL mark? Thanks
Answer: Hi Kim, no CSA but ETL, & no c in ETL mark. Thanks.
