How much space does a stove need?

When installing your stove, whether gas or induction, proper spacing is essential. Adequate clearance ensures safe operation and ventilation.

Side clearance: Allocate a minimum of 30 centimeters of space on both the left and right sides of your stove. This provides ample room for handling hot cookware safely and offers a comfortable space for food preparation.

Rear clearance: Maintain a distance of at least 10 centimeters between the back of your stove and any combustible materials, such as walls or cabinets. This not only ensures proper ventilation but also reduces the risk of overheating.

Overhead clearance: If you have overhead cabinets or a range hood, ensure there is a minimum of 75 centimeters of space between the top of your stove and these structures. This safeguard prevents heat from damaging cabinets and facilitates effective ventilation.

Island installation: In the case of island installation, clearance requirements may differ. It is essential to refer to the precise installation instructions provided for your stove.

To get the exact measurements, consult your stove's user manual. This step is crucial to prevent overheating and maintain the longevity of your appliance.
