Individual Stove for your modular Kitchen

Materials: Udden Working Bench, Udden Cabinet Base

Description: So Ikea sells a stove in their Udden-Series which I found kinda “meh”. For about 300€, you only get the most basic functions like a grill, but not even a hot air function or a pizza mode.

So I decided to buy an Udden working bench; those come in two sizes, the smaller one is almost the same size as a regular cabinet used for stoves. This applies to most stoves sold in Germany, so please check yours out first if you live elsewhere.

I installed an Udden cabinet base, then used an electric jigsaw to cut out the hole for the cooking field.

When doing so, you should use a napkin or something else between the base of your jigsaw and the plate, or else you’ll get nasty scratches.

And that was about it, it worked like a charm and looks pretty good if you ask me!

    I like this. Is it possible to have more details about fitting the stove ? (which shelf did you use ?)

    The bench seems to not have a shelf to support the stove under. How did you do that? Thanks.

    Looks very neat. Too bad these things are not available in the US.

    I have never seen an “udden Stove” at IKEA, could you post a link to that? Otherwise, nice work.
