Dwell suggested 8" counter space in front of cooktop for plating?
I was at the dentists' office and picked up Dwell magazine, didn't note it issue, the cover said "Interiors". Anyhow, they featured a chef and his kitchen by poggenpohl. It said that he deliberately had his induction cooktop placed with 8" of counter in front of it so that he could plate as rapidly as he could at this restaurant. It had a picture of him in front of his cooktop with empty plates on the counter between him and the skillet he was cooking in.
This is a completely new idea for me, as anyone worked in a restaurant kitchen with this setup and comment on the ergonomics of it? For a home setup I would imagine that 30" counters deep counters would be sufficient for a 7.5 inch deep counter in front if the cooktop was mounted in the usual position.
