Burners in a row? Has anyone done this?
Even before the babies I never liked cooking on the front burners, with steam rising and risk of splatters, so I always use the back burners. I once visited a kitchen that was clearly designed by the cook, not the kd. Among other things, the cooktop was four burners IN A ROW, back from the counter edge. This layout made extra prep space available in front of the pans. Chop and dump! Ever since then I've been on the lookout for the same design.
I saw this picture just recently. Now, I personally don't need six burners, and I'm not judging the rest of the kitchen and the position of the prep sink, but I sure do like burners in a row. (The article doesn't mention ANYTHING about it.) I also found a picture of a linear Foster smoothtop, probably induction? I wouldn't put it on an island, but on the perimeter.
Has anyone ever worked with such a layout? How did you like it?
