Anyone see any issues with this?
I would not be concerned - the cooktop may not weight much, but it's solid and very durable. I have a heavy 10 gallon stainless brew pot and start my boil with 7.5 to 8 gallons in it. It could easily take another 15 pounds of grain. Tell you what - I'm brewing this weekend and I'll throw my pot on there with 100 pounds of barbell weights just to make sure.
Edit: just added photo of my 12.2 pound brew pot with 115 pounds of weights in it - total of 127 pounds. I'd be comfortable pushing even 200 pounds with it.
