Blue Star rangetop question
My Blue Star rangetop says the following:
"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"."
I understand that it cannot go against anything tall.
My question is: Why does it have to go against the wall? I had wanted to put it 3" from the wall so I would have more space behind the rangetop on the countertop.
I understand I cannot have it inset 3" on a 27" cabinet, but what if it was flush with the front of the 27" cabinet?
Any thoughts? Thanks, Peke
