Kitchen counter top next to stove code?
Most are flush or with the stove slightly above counter level. It really depends on what stove you have and what sort of top it has. If the stove has a rounded lip along the edge then raise that up above the edge of the counter. In general, you don't want the "sharp" edge of the counter showing because it will a) catch dirt and b) look funny.
If your legs won't go any higher then consider putting down a sheet of plywood under the stove to raise it. You can try putting blocks (ply or 1x or whatever) under just the feet to save wood but it can be a real pain to get the stove up on them when getting it back in position.
