Cooking on the island

We are thinking of a similar cooktop in island design. How is cooking with company hanging around the island? Any pros or cons to cooktop in island?

I've never had a problem with cooking on an island. And I'm a fairly messy cook! If I were frying chicken, I'd ask guests to refrain from sitting in front of the frying pan, but then again I wouldn't fry chicken around company. Go for it!

I currently have an island cook top and have lived with it for 15 years. One pro is that you can face your guests while cooking. One con is that ventilation is an issue for us- the downdraft does not have enough draw for our stove.

Cooking is wonderful in the island, helps you to be socializing while cooking, and everyone loves to gather around the island.
