Problem with cooktop and oven below
We got a cabinet bid yesterday from Bellmont and were inclined to accept the bid (the other, higher-end bid we got was a full 50% higher for the same layout). However, Bellmont has a quirk that is causing us some difficulty - their standard toe-kick is 4-1/2" rather than the typical 4". The difference seems to make it impossible to put in a 30" induction cooktop and 30" oven below it.
We know we could get a slide-in range but we don't like the way the ranges stick out past the front of the cabinets. We have no flexibility as to where the pieces go, since this is a condo in a concrete floor former industrial building.
We were leaning toward either GE, Electrolux or Bosch.
Any ideas other than putting in thicker counters (which I definitely don't want because I'm short)?
