Here is a link showing the bevel edge and the crescent edging:When you are doing a bevel edge, does it go on all edges...specifically, would it go on the edge beside the stove? Can you post a picture of what the counter edges look like when using a bevel edge beside he stove if you have one?
I am tempted to use the crescent edge on both edges. This will eliminate the exposed mdf, but will result in a bit of a gap between the stove and counter.
I agree with you, using the crescent edge against the stove and front would solve a few problems.
