What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ng loves to cook, and it was important for her to have a kitchen that was practical and an island that was large enough to be multifunctional. At first the amount of space she had was somewhat intimidating, as the kitchen in the original house was small. Still, even with a bigger kitchen, the family holds true to their commitment to live simply and make the most of what they have. They’ve kept their appliances to a minimum; there are no microwaves or toaster ovens in this kitchen. The cooktop and oven serve most of their cooking needs.One of the things that Ng had to get used to in the new kitchen was cooking on an induction cooktop. Though they had originally considered a gas range, the family finally opted for induction, which is more energy efficient because it reduces wasted heat. Since a lot of the family’s meals are prepared using a wok, Ng worked with the designer to lower the countertop by 2 inches to make wok cooking more comfortable. Backsplash: Kiwi, Debris Collection, Fireclay Tile; countertop: Crema Botticino quartz, Okite; pendants: Firefly, Oggetti Luce; island cabinets: cherry; perimeter cabinets: Shaker; cabinet insert panels: Criss Cross, Varia Ecoresin Organics, 3form

Because much of this family's cooking is used with a wok, countertop was lowered 2". Good to keep in mind, as I work with lots of batters, ingredients, in large bowls and have to lift to pour.
