Are 2 Stove Burners Enough for a 3BR house?
How often do you actually use more than 2 cooktop burners at the same time? For cooking that is, not just for keeping a hot pan off the countertop. And also not for a water kettle, since I have an instant hot water dispenser.
I'm thinking of putting a 2-burner cooktop (either 12" or 15" wide) next to a barbeque grill of the same width next to it. You can get cooktops that take interchangable cartridges so you can switch between a grill and two burners, but most of those include a downdraft exhaust fan I don't need.
What do you think - are 2 burners and a grill adequate for a small 3-bedroom house (3 people living there, none that are serious cooks) or would you feel constrained without 3 or 4 burners? There isn't much countertop space, and I use the grill as much as the burners myself.
