A Small NYC Kitchen Reno 2017

Yes, both fridge doors open to their maximum.  The fridge extends beyond the depth of the wall just far enough for the doors.  The wall on the other side is actually 6" away; I wanted that space to keep my step ladder! 

 

Here's the right side fridge door, fully opened.

 

I am SO jealous!  >:( xD

I have a toddler granddaughter constantly in the house now, and no really suitable place in my current rental's kitchen to put it, so I think my magnetic strip might be relegated to holding screwdrivers in my utility closet for a while. 

 

Inside an upper cabinet door?

Not really a practical option with these cabinet doors. Also, where it's a rental, I'd be reluctant to screw into something relatively permanent like the cabinet doors. I avoid anything going into the woodwork, as well, since the house and its moldings are almost a century old now and a lot of it still has the original finishes. Walls are fine, because it's easy to fill a small hole with plaster, but I'm respectful of the wood.

The force of opening and closing the door will make all the knives fall. 

---------------

A beautifully designed practical kitchen. Makes you want to cook in it;  Unlike some other modern "showcase" kitchens

I had knife rack in cabinet door.  Nothing ever fell off, and i'm not terribly gentle about closing them.

It depends on the following:

1. The weight and shape of the knives.

2. The composition of the knives' metals (alloy)

3. Type of magnets.

4. Size and age of magnets.

5. Distance of magnets to knives.

6. Type of door hinges. Some hinges are soft closing.

      Hi, I'm David. I'm in the process of starting a new venture, and need some advice. I'm starting a catering company to cater to 4 golf courses, and hope to expand into other offsite catering after a year or so. I'm looking for a space to put a central kitchen to cook everything, and truck it out from there. We will be serving about 1200 people per weekend. Im having trouble visualizing how big of a kitchen space I'm going to need, and am having trouble finding anything online to help calculate the size of said space. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.    Thanks in advance,   Chef David

      Hello! I was wondering if anyone on here has tried using an induction cooktop with confection making (caramels, fondant, marshmallows ect...). My stove has literally three settings, and the low setting still burns sugar and there is no such thing as maintaining any sort of "simmer". I was looking into getting a cooktop and buying some copper sugar pots and mauviel makes this thing that goes inbetween. I would love to hear any input into this idea or your experiences!

      HI guys,
       
      I'm here for a bit of advice. We are building a house (in Croatia, Europe), and finally have a chance to build a kitchen as i want it
      We would like to get a professional combi oven, something like this new Rational (a bit pricey) or this UNOX (better price) so that we have a long term solution for our needs.
      The reason we are going for the professional oven is that, for example UNOX, is cheaper than "home combi ovens" from brands like Miele, Gaggenau, etc. and are much better than those.
       
      Does anyone have any experience with pro combis at home? i have only seen a couple of people, at least on the internet, that have them at home. I guess that setup would not be a problem, because we designed a water inlet and outlet for the oven, and the voltage is OK. is there anything we didnt think of? Will that oven have higher maintananace cost, even if its used only couple of days a week?
       
      Thanks for help
