Kitchen layout of potential home

I've never posted on this forum, but am hoping you will all be able to provide me with some outside perspective on the layout/functionality of the kitchen in these pictures. This is in a house we are considering purchasing. Hopefully you'll be able to get a feel for things, but if you need me to explain the layout better, please ask. I will just confirm the appliance placement when looking at the picture that shows the kitchen overall -

Electric cooktop on island

Wall oven and microwave to left

Dishwasher in peninsula

Refridgerator - Kind of obvious :)

As for scale - when the dishwasher/oven is open, you cannot walk between the doors and the island. I'm not stating that as a negative - just fact. I'm not asking for comments on aesthetics. We wouldn't be doing a major kitchen redo, though we might consider putting in a new wall oven and cooktop.

A bit of info on our family and kitchen use - we have a 4 year old and 18 month old who enjoy "helping" in the kitchen. We hope to have more children in the future. While gourmet meals aren't something I'm able to accomplish with two young children, I enjoy cooking/baking quite a bit and our kitchen gets used hard.

So, could you give me your observations? Positives and negatives? If the kitchen is important to you in a home, and the layout couldn't be changed, is there anything that would either make you want the house, or be a dealbreaker for you?

Thanks!

Megan

There are additional pictures added further down in the thread - my husband requested they be posted to give better view of space around cooktop.
