How high to set the range/oven height?


I'm installing a new range/oven with a glass cooktop and I'm a bit confused about how high to set the legs.

The glass cooktop has a lip maybe 1/4" high around all 3 edges. Should the lip be flush to the countertop to the left and right of the range or should the actual cooktop be flush and the lip stands proud?

Thanks.

The lip is a resemblance of a spill collector, like a levee, and is meant to contain a spill, to keep a mess confined to a smaller area.

And I see it being a slight hindrance when wanting to slide a pot on or off the range.

How does your SWMBO want it?

Unless you plan to be the main cook, I would ask SWMBO.

I do do most of the cooking, but SWMBO says: "You're the DIY expert, you figure it out."

With a glass cook top, I think you're not supposed to "slide" things on and off.

I'm thinking to make the top of the lip flush to the countertop to make it have more of a "built-in" look.

Sounds logical to me to have it flush.

It will function well that way, and will not catch any pot that is raised just slightly to set aside.
