Stove cover slot in kitchen counter

Can anyone tell me how they've cleaned out the inevitable bits of things that fall into the above mentioned slot behind the cooktop? BTW I have a 33.2 Palazzo

My Wedgewood cook top lifts right off. A hefty push to the rear and a lift up on the front. Snaps back in reverse.

A picture is worth a thousand words. The stove does not lift up or out as its secured under the acrylic countertop.

I have learned to just say goodbye to what ever I loose down that slot. I tried taking the bottom cabinet panel off, but there is too much stuff under there to find anything. I have looked in the very back of each drawers and outside below the slide. None of those options ever work, so goodbye...

So long as it's small stuff have you tried a vacuum cleaner with one of those dryer vent line adapters? Larger stuff I have tools that reach down and grab.. But a better method is don't drop stuff other than the cover into the slot.

I've never heard of a dryer vent line adaptor. Thankyou that's very useful info. I'll look into that. I swatted a fly one time whose corpus bounced into the slot.

I had a few things roll over into that slot and it was a nightmare to get them out! The next time it happened, I took a long wooden spoon, wrapped some duct tape around it and stuck it down in there, moving it from left to right. Worked like a charm!

From the second picture , I can't tell if the way the stove top is installed allows enough movement to the rear ( about 1/2" required) to remove the stove top pan. I can see the two silver mount springs that hold the stove pan forward against the front center hold down, that secures the front edge of the pan; through the vent grills at the rear.
I just had to help a friend with his Atwood top, and his would not move to the rear to release , because the front edge had been pushed down over the knob plate. We had to slide a thin piece of plastic in from the front outside edge of the pan, to the center, to lift the front edge up, so it would move to the rear, that allowed the pan to be removed for clean up.
I'd post a picture , but the " free wifi " at the park I'm in won't work for pictures, or downloads, or , or .

EDIT: Finally got the second picture to come up enlarged , The way the black surround over-hangs the edges of the cook top I cant figure out how the top was removed/installed to make to propane connection to the manifold under the cook top.

Duct tape on a stick is a great idea! Another method is to take an appropriate length & diameter of PVC pipe or plastic tubing & stick it in the end of your vacuum cleaner hose. Seal it up with more of that duct tape & you have a narrow, long reach vacuum attachment. I've used this in many hard-to-reach applications.
