Pretty burners all in a row
Seems like this would provide much better access to everything.
Don't know why this wasn't thought of before. Of course it also
can really eat up linear counter space:





Binova has turned cooktop configuration on its sideliterally. Instead of the standard arrangement, the Italian kitchen design company aligned the burners on its new Fires Line unit horizontally. The shape allows for more versatile design in the kitchen, since the cooktop can be positioned up front for easy accessibility or to the back of the counter, away from children. Available through Chicago-based Haute Living (one of two U.S. distributors), the stainless steel appliance measures 54 inches long and 13 inches deep. Haute Living, 312.329.9000.

2. Great if you have the room.
I would love this but have very little counter space. If I ever had to remodel a kitchen, I would look into this arrangement. Makes sense to me. I would also advocate wider refrigerators that are less deep.
I have wall space for a wider refrig. but as it is, I had to buy one that sticks out much farther than I would like.

3. Saucepan handles!
Either you have the center one sticking out so you can easily knock the full pot of whatever it is onto yourself, or you turn it to the side and heat it up nicely on the adjacent pot and hob. You'd only use that center hob when you had to use all 3, after all. I'll keep the 2 front, 2 back, thanks just the same.

Just don't put those controls at the back, please. I don't like burned arms, either.

5. Hmmm...that's something to consider. But it seems like you could place the burners
at just the right distance from the edge so that most handles wouldn't stick out beyond it. I recently looked at a model home kitchen that I liked where they had the traditional two front/back, but it was situated
on one end (corner) of an island so that you could access it from two sides.

6. It looks to me like this was designed for skimpy urban kitchens
especially in Europe, that have narrow countertops and few amenities.

4. As Warpy points out, may not be so practical. Though it does look cool! nt

7. Seems impractical to me because of venting
I can't think of what kind of venting would be practical for such a configuration.
