Installing Oven Under Bosch Induction Cooktop

Anyone install an a wall oven under a Bosch cooktop? Bosch's installation instructions indicate not to install a wall oven under their cooktop unless it is vented. Using a Bossh single wall oven as an example, I'm not sure how this can be done since it vents out the front. I also see a picture in the kitchen gallery on the Bosch site of one of their ovens installed under an induction cooktop.

I have a Fagor 30" oven installed below the Bosch NIT5065 induction cooktop. The Fagor fan blows air out between the oven door and the control panel. Works fine so far (admittedly only a couple of weeks, but I have baked in the oven, and I have used the cooktop almost every day).

RE: Installing Oven Under Bosch Induction Cooktop

It's not meant to be done that way, that's why they don't show the specification.

The only "vented" ovens I know of are Thermador models from the 60-70's - and I'm pretty sure none of them would fit below a cooktop anyway.

It can physically be done with a few ovens, like hockeyfan illustrates. But, you might prematurely wear out the electronics on the ctop and I'll bet BSH will decline to warranty it for you. Even if you decide to foot the bill yourself the part and labor will run close to a grand in many cases - check the induction threads that abound.
