    Hi

    We are looking at having our gas hob which is fitted over a built in double oven.

    One website says this cannot be done.

    We have Howdens 38mm worktop and a Lamona built in double oven.

    Please can you advise?

    I expect it depends upon how high the units are. you will need a gap between the top of the oven and the bottom of the hob. that will be shown in the hob instructions (you can usually download them if you have not picked one yet)

    Once you know the required gap you can go from there

    It can be done- we have that exact setup. All you need to do is find an induction hob that is low enough profile to be contained within the thickness of the worktop and any available space above the oven (there will be at least a few mm).

    We went with a zanussi model

    Whilst there are more slimline models this fit the bill and was fairly cheap.

    I am guessing you actually mean a built UNDER double oven not a built IN double oven ? If it is a built under, then yes you can install a gas hob above it. Care needs to be taken though with the routing of the gas. The gas supply needs to be routed up as close as possible to the rear left hand side of the oven cavity to about 50mm below the worktop. Then a 90 degree elbow to take the pipe parallel with the worktop for 200mm then the gas tap. The exit from the union on the hob needs to be done with a 90 degree elbow as well, to then join to the gas tap.

    First post was incomplete and therefore misleading. Second post identified gas hob was going to be removed. Subsequent posts answered the question. Been caught out like that myself.
