36" BS rangetop with cabinets pulled out 3"
I have read on this forum about people pulling their cabinets 3" from the wall so they would have more room for large pots on their rangetop. My cabinet guy said it would make the cabinets weaker to not be connected to the wall. He instead is offering to make the rangetop cabinet deeper.
BS installation guides say...This appliance has been designed to be installed directly against rear walls and side base cabinets. It cannot be installed directly against tall side cabinets, side walls, tall appliances or base cabinets extending beyond 24 inches [610 mm].
How can this be when people put rangetops in islands? There are no rear walls then.
Others have placed their BS rangetops at 27" deep. I can see that you wouldn't want to have extra deep cabinets with it placed back too far, but what about moving it 3" on a 27" and have the 3" extra behind the back burners? That would be a problem with the island or stainless steel backsplash I guess. Any thoughts?
For BS rangetop owners...do you have enough room for big pots in the back? Is it too crowded against the backsplash? Thanks for any advice or info. Peke
