Perfect for minimalist kitchen

MeganMontreal 7/21/2020

We installed this two-burner stove for our basement suite apartment, I found it to be quite expensive for what it is, but it fit perfectly on our approx 8' countertop while still leaving enough space for the sink and food prep. Our contractor didn't have any problems installing it.
