recessed cooktop.... a new idea ? - The recessed cooktop is interesting....Any reason the homeowners wanted it that way? It seems like it would be harder to install and harder to clean!

Honestly, after battling with them concerning the merits of form following function, they really just fell in love with the look... and they will be the first to tell you that they will NOT use it very often unless it involves reheating leftovers. Wolf had a pic on their literature and website that was the inspiration: http://www.subzero-wolf.com/oven/cooktop/15-inch-gas-cooktop. The concept is to have the burners flush with the countertop... Looks cool; practical? Not sure.

BTW, install was super complicated.

Down draft - Would you please share the dimensions of your island and if there are drawers under your cooktop? Also, how do the owners like the Wolf downdraft? Thanks

The homeowners are very happy with their downdraft, it has a lot of CFMs compared to other units. This is a fairly small kitchen even though there is a bunch of appliances and cabinets. I am generally not a fan of island cooktops but it is nice not to turn your back to the guests as you entertain and I feel works very well in this space.

Thank you Lonny. What is the profile thickness of the retractable ventilation device and its blower? How much room was left in front of this device and its blower for your cabinet drawers? How deep are the cabinet drawers? Thank you.
