When shopping/ researching for the new range I realized just about all the 4 burner and most 6 burner homeowner/ faux commercial ranges had about a 9 inch limit for use on adjacent burners.

Wife and I went with a 4 burner restaurant range, pretty much as long as items on adjacent burners total under 22 inches we're ok. Plus we got 28k of burner. And the cost was substantially less than the homeowner units.

Smile Eggplant

Jenkinzz, I am really curious about your recipe there. I see much potential for a mouth-watering, Italian delicacy. Please share your recipe

Yeah, I run into that problem as well when using the wide cast aluminum pot or the 17-qt stock pot. Then I have to resort to the diagonal game and use the one in the back on the oppostite side.

I could cheat and use the side where the space heater is, but I'd have to be careful that the food doesn't stick and burn.

Boy. You people can carry on some conversation. LOL

Anyway, thanks for the camping burner idea theing, but I'm looking for something more permanent. I may just have to rip out some cabinets to get the stove I need. The only problem is the dimentions of my kitchen turn that into a huge project. I would have to replace my range now with a cabinet, then install a 36 on te adjacent wall.....where the fridge is. LOL.

Anyone have a range WITHOUT the digital BS in the back? Maybe those have more space? Even an older one?

This thread got me thinking. It seems I have alot more room on my new stove than the old "piece", so I did an experiment.

The bigger pots and pans all fit. Not exactly centered over the burners in back, but good enough so that I could use them if I ever needed to. I can definately use the saucepans back there.

Now if I could just use the griddle burner at the same time.....

Red face Apologize for Offramp

Sorry for the offramp everyone! I saw that picture of eggplant cooking & was hungry. The black range in the picture is well laid out. We had a 30" GE cooktop w/ all the knobs on the right side. This cramped the space & pots/pans were always bumping - and you could not use 2 large pans at once.

We changed out to a nice 36" wide which makes a huge difference.
