RE: Built-in Double Oven 1/2 Size... (Follow-Up #3)

posted by: carsonheim on 02.24.2014 at 11:19 am in Kitchens Forum

This is the oven I'm putting in. It's great. Full size oven below, the half-size upper can either serve as a microwave OR oven. both have convection.

Here is a link that might be useful: my oven


42" tall - probably too big to put under counter anywhere.

RE: Corner Cabinet Space Calculations and Analysis (Follow-Up #49)

Thought I would upload a photo of my costco corner to this thread. Thanks to arlosmom for coming up with such a genius, cost effective solution that was super easy for my cabinet maker to understand. This particular cabinet is only 20" deep (wall jog) and it was so helpful to have a solution that could size to any cabinet.

RE: Where to place faucet and stuff with Orca sink? (Follow-Up #7)

Regarding cabinet size, mine is 36", though stated minimum cabinet size is 33" and I've heard some scoop the cabinet sides of a 30" cabinet and put it in that way. For a long time I planned to do just that and put in the 30" cabinet, though at last minute I erred on the size of caution as I was nervous making the cabinet thinner on the DW side--where there was no cabinet abutting it to give it added strength. I bumped it up to 36"--reason being it was easiest to just give it 3" to either side so that the placement did not need to change since the window was already put in and I was flanking it with equal size uppers. Having the larger cabinet does allow for the sink fixtures to be offset from either end which with a smaller sized cabient would need to be adjusted. I also did not put in a tilt-out tray--though I do think now I could've squeezed it in. Again, errered on the side of caution as I had my heart set on using the Brizo Venuto faucet and didn't want to even consider possibility I would not have clearance to the back. My water dispensor is by Waterstone and is for cold water only, though they may make one for hot as well. ONly caution here is that you need to consider how the handle of your particular faucet places in relation to the next hole over (in my case the air switch)--as I know one person where the hole was drilled too close and so the air switch ended up being under the faucet handle--not that big a deal, but not planned that way either.

As for accessories, I have the bottom grid and right shelf grid--I love them both and highly recommend them. I did not consider the cutting board--both because you need a positive reveal which I did not want for aesthetics and I have a separate prep sink which I use and I like to use the plastic cutting boards which then go in the DW.

No regrets on any of my sink choices. It gets heavy use every day.


Need a positive reveal to use the Franke cutting board?

Where to place faucet and stuff with Orca sink?

posted by: kgyso on 01.03.2008 at 08:48 pm in Kitchens Forum

Hi, I have an Franke Orca and I am trying to figure out where to put my faucet, airswitch, airgap, and hot water dispenser, and soap dispenser. Do you have pics of yours? Thanks

Which faucet did you use with your Franke Orca sink?

posted by: pluckymama on 07.05.2008 at 07:37 am in Kitchens Forum

I have the sink and now have to pick a faucet. Would love to see pics of faucets with the Franke Orca sink and your review of your faucet and any suggestions you have for picking one with this particular sink.

Will the range hood be loud?

posted by: jamies on 04.14.2012 at 09:28 pm in Kitchens Forum

Take a 100 cfm blower unit that does not have any quietness features added to it -- assume it's as loud as such a blower can be. If you put the blower on the roof, how will it sound in the kitchen?

I don't like hearing the AC (or the neighbor's) when I'm in the yard, but I figure I could live with the hood blower because it won't be on nearly as long, and it usually won't be on at full power (it's variable speed).

Plus, there's so much other noise outside that it's not quiet anyway. But inside I have a chance to keep things quiet.

Will such a blower be loud (more than 5 sones) from the inside too?

Opinions on/experience with microwave drawers? Price?

posted by: Madeline616 on 10.25.2012 at 03:13 pm in Kitchens Forum

Hi there-

Did a search of the forum, but didn't find much. Does anyone have or have experience with a microwave drawer?

In working out some problems with Mom and Dad's newly installed cabinets, one idea is to scrap the tower where the micro was to go, and do a micro drawer instead.

I'd love to hear opinions/experience.

What's it like to use a micro drawer?
Do you like setting food in and removing from the top?
How easy is it to clean?
How do you find the controls to be, practically speaking?

I've priced some and haven't found anything for less than $1000. Does anyone know of one for $500 or less?


Madeline :)
