RE: Do you ever feel like your island is too deep? (Follow-Up #16)

posted by: sjhockeyfan on 04.23.2014 at 11:30 pm in Kitchens Forum

CalQuail, the island is 118" long -

Front:

18" 3-drawer stack
24" microwave drawer with deep drawer below
4" filler for power outlet
36" 3-drawer stack
36" 3-drawer stack

Back:

33" 2-door cabinet
33" 2-door cabinet
52" of space for the stools (and we have a power outlet there too (we don't eat meals at the island).

Now that it's done, the one thing I would consider (and recommend to others) is to make it just 2-3" wider so the 12" cabinets on the back can be deeper. 12" cabinets aren't even deep enough for my placemats!

We have about 24" between the sink and the cooktop on the left plus 24" on the right side of the cooktop.

We have an island with an induction cooktop - we call it a continent though - since it is so big. If you have the room make it big enough to be practical.

Below is a shot of ours (108" x 54")

We rarely use our dining room for eating diners and eat at the island which easily sits 4 - our son also sits there while one of us cooks most nights.

RE: Drawer below Bosch 800 induction stovetop (Follow-Up #2)

I have a utensil drawer under the Bosch 800 induction cooktop. It was no problem for the cabinet maker and we have had no issues with it. -- never gets too warm in the drawer. You will notice that the sides are scooped to accommodate the cooktop.

RE: InSinkErator Evolution Compact 3/4 HP - which air switch? (Follow-Up #7)

posted by: Ginny20 on 06.22.2013 at 09:04 pm in Appliances Forum

I have the Evolution 3/4 HP Pro Compact, with the same Waste King fiber optic switch as kaseki. I love that switch. It's meant to be in a narrow hole, so if you have thick stone counters, you may need to have a 3/4" hole drilled, then secure the top of the switch with a little silicone. Do not, however, buy the adaptor that they sell to be used in larger holes. It doesn't work in thick stone. Don't let that scare you off, though. The closed gasket of the fiber optic switch is great.

RE: InSinkErator Evolution Compact 3/4 HP - which air switch? (Follow-Up #5)

Another (more expensive) option is the LED switch system from InSinkErator's competitor Waste King that I use with my InSinkErator Evolution disposers. Pushing the control (which is sealed) changes the reflectivity at the end of an optical fiber which in turn energizes or shuts off the power to the garbage disposal. There is a 20 second timer included so the shut-off press can be skipped.

Available from various on-line sources, there are a multitude of color combinations available for the control itself. Prices vary from source to source.
