For me, and I do most of the cooking, the flush mount ranges have 2 significant deficits for little, if any, benefit. 1st - by lowering the burners the size of the oven is decreased from about 6" high to about 4 1/2." Also, there are typically restrictions on pan sizes because the sunken burners with large pans above trap heat that can result in dangerous high heat buildup. The flush surface is nice, but the standard ranges have covers that can also be used to expand counter space although raised about 1 1/2." These might seem like insignificant problems, but why pay more for an appliance that is, for me, less suitable.

I know the ETI standard flush mount two burner, and the Dickinson cooktop both have pan size restrictions, but I was not aware, and have not seem pan size restrictions on the Dometic or Suburban 3 burner flush mount cooktops or ranges. If they have restrictions, would someone point me in the right direction to find that>?

We chose the same oven as the OP for the following reasons

1) The galley cabinet is 1+” inch deeper resulting in less space between the handle and the fridge.
2) The dials protrude past the handle and I felt we would catch our clothes on them sliding into the dinette.
3) The two galley drawers are 2” smaller.

Samuel from ETI confirmed measurements.

Jwinfrey, that is helpful information, and I cannot find the Suburban manual online, but the Dometic, whether flush mount or standard, says pan minimum should cover the burner and max should not exceed 10”.

I am sorry if I gave the impression that the Dometic and Suburban 3 burner cooktops and ranges have stated pan restrictions. I just meant to indicate that the flush design can trap heat in some installations and some models do have restrictions. I was unsuccessful in finding the appropriate owners manual, and didn't pursue it further since the benefit of a flush design was, to me, minimal.

I foolishly put the glass lid down on the stove, with the burners on simmer. A couple of minutes later that glass exploded, with pieces everywhere, but thankfully no small shards. We can now use our larger pans because the pans aren't limited by the upright glass cover. Terry now has a wooden cutting board that perfectly covers the stove when not in use, yet flips up behind the stove when using the burners. We've been that way for the last 150 or so nights.

I still need to remember to order a replacement cover for when we finally sell the trailer. The key word here is "remember."

Enjoy,

Perry

We are still trying to decide what we will do. We want a slide in 3 burner Suburban or Dometic cooktop, but that is not an option. Not sure we will do yet.

Northern Lite who uses the Suburban Elite stove links to the manual here:
https://northern-lite.com/wp-content...nce-Manual.pdf

It states similar specs to Dometic - do not extend 1" beyond burner grate (maximum pan size 10" diameter).

Thanks! I didn’t think to look at NorthenLite for the manual. Very Helpful.

In addition to excessive heat buildup, if an oversize pot or pan is used, that limits combustion air to the burner, incomplete combustion may occur, producing dangerous levels of carbon monoxide (CO) within the trailer.
(I once did an cause investigation of a CO poisoning call that our dept. responded to. An entire family was overcome, with one family member making it outside onto the front lawn. Fortunately, a neighbor saw them and called 911. Everyone survived. We tried to find the CO source, but were unsuccessful. A wise old grey-haired service rep. from the gas utility co. showed up to assist, and discovered that the grandpa had been making menudo in a large pot, on an old stove, that covered the stove burner and surrounding top. That was the CO cause.)

Thanks, I always preview my posts to check for accuracy and formatting - a carryover from when I was working. Here are the latest interior build photos. Things are progressing nicely.

Four more build photos. Looks like fridge, stove, windows, all utilities completed. All interior carpentry except for cabinet doors finished. They must be ahead of schedule - 3/11 completion date.

Congrats on your upcoming 21NE. I'm a little jealous.

We are still deciding which direction to go. A cheap throw away sticky for under $20K or the Escape 5.0 around $40k. We can't seem to get past the pricing on the 5.0. We love the layout and know it is the best layout we've found but we are of the old frugal German decent. : ))

How many videos and reviews does it take to pull the trigger?
