    You don't need a master breaker, you need a means of disconnect. A 100A main breaker can provide that function. Over current protection would be provided by the breaker in the panel feeding this.

    You need to ask the inspector what is allowed. If you have an existing 8/3 gauge feed you may be able to use the tap rules to power both the oven and cooktop.

    You don't need to hold the handle as long as you see a flush in the bowl. It is a very fast flush only allowing a minimal amount of water to do the job. It is very different than old toilets.

    Quick fix then is to grind off the sharp point of the screws that do fit. A bit of a hack and not "listed" for the panel but inspector might sign off on it.
