Please, I need help!
In a new kitchen design (put together by my wife and the kitchen sales chap) electric hobs have been positioned built into the worktop directly above a double built under oven.
Specifically Zanussi ZOU575 oven

and Zanussi ZXE65 mixed induction and ceramic hobs

in a 38mm laminate worktop.
I have struggled to get the user manual for these Zanussi beasts...and failed. Similar electrolux/aeg type beasts seem to suggest that the double oven fits between two cabinets (i.e. not in a housing, just on two right angles screwed to the cabinets either side) and right up to just under the work top. However, the hobs require a 5mm gap between the bottom of the work top and the top of the front of the oven plus 20 mm between the top of the oven and the bottom of the hobs. Unless I am mistaken these two can not go together. Am I right?
While going for ceramic only hobs reduces the restrictions on hob placement a little it seems to me that these electrolux type built under double ovens leave no space for hobs above - although the kitchen chap is happy to sell them to us
. A pity because the design seems cute to me with the dials down the side of the top oven to give an unusually tall top oven and a comparatively decent sized botton oven.
Sorry, i'm rambling...
Is there a combination of double built under oven and hobs that can be accomodated or must we choose between a single built under oven and hobs above or a double built under oven and hobs to the side?
Your assistance will be much apprecaited...
