Hoping for a more flush countertop and cleaner look. If I don't physically mount a stove top in the counter, all that smooth, flush, uncluttered space has lots of versatility for you name it, rolling dough, a coffee maker, chopping space, work bench, etc.
The new airstream sports have this european stove with a folding glass cover that is more flush. The stoves are way expensive, however, but it is another option.
Someone else locally mentioned an induction stove top, which is also very cool but requires electricity to operate.
So the most clean and versatile way to go would be some sort of portable gas camp stove, IF it is safe and practical to use. I could cook indoors, outdoors, hooked up or boondocking.
