Is it a good idea to have the oven next to the refrigerator? Won't they make each other work harder to maintai

I don't know...it just seems like the heat from the oven would make the refrigerator run longer. Maintenance was the wrong word I guess...more expensive energy bills is what I meant. I love the way it looks.

You'll find that with modern ovens there is very little heat transmitted through the side, and over the life of the appliance, there is a small percentage of the time that ovens are actually used, in any case. You are right- it looks good to group deep thinks like refers, ovens, mw's and deep pantry storage together.

in my experience, downdrafts work for the casual cook, but not the serious cook, or certain ethnic cuisine. We've used threader in the past.
