Kitchen Island Cooktop Benefits
If you opt for a cooktop plus wall oven setup, islands with cooktops divide prep work into two stations: one at the cooktop for simmering, sauteing and boiling, and another at the wall oven for baking and roasting. Kitchen islands with a cooktop plus a separate wall oven are good for:
1. Small or Oddly Shaped Kitchen Islands
Consolidating your cooking space by adding a cooktop to your island allows for better flow of your small or unconventional kitchen layout.
2. More Storage Space Near the Cooking Surface
You can reap the benefits of having a cooktop in your kitchen island with the additional storage space that you’ll have at your disposal. Keep your favorite spices and most commonly used ingredients handy within the island cabinets.
3. Large Kitchens with an Expanded Working Triangle
If you have a large kitchen, you can make your space more efficient by having a designated cooking space, where all your prepping and ingredients can all be done with ease, without having to constantly move throughout your entire kitchen.
4. A Wider Variety of Burner Configurations
Whether you choose a cooktop or range, you can find options that have up to five different burners, so no matter how ambitious your creativity, you can make every aspect of your meal with ease.
5. More Cooking Oven Space
By choosing a cooktop plus wall oven setup, you have the option to add more baking and roasting space with a double wall oven.
6. Avoiding Bending Over to Use the Oven
If mobility is an issue for you, then installing a wall oven to accompany your island cooktop means that you’ll be able to bake or roast without having to bend down like you would with a range.
