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.
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?
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.
