What height to install Wolf Combi Steam Oven?

umeboshiJuly 19, 2013

We are finalizing plans for a new kitchen that will contain the Wolf Combi Steam oven. We have the option to install it at wall oven height or undercounter height. I know they can emit a lot of steam when the door is opened, but am not sure if it's hotter/more dangerous than opening a regular oven.

Has anyone had issues with an undercounter mounting? Any preference for either height?

I have a baby who will be walking by the time the kitchen is done. Mindful of this, should she be a determining factor in placement of the steam combi oven?

Definitely higher for safety reasons. Enjoy! Our micro is under the counter, and the bottom of our combi is 38" off the ground, perfect for us.
