Dishwasher under cooktop?
I am planning to add a dishwasher to my tiny kitchen. I'm very tight on space and the best place is to the right of the sink, but that puts it partially under my cooktop. I called the local building department & the inspector said that is not in violation of any codes that he knows of but he's never seen it done. My contractor says it looks like there is room but he's never done it before. Can this really be done? If it can, why doesn't any do it? Should I worry about heat from the cooktop damaging the dishwasher (it's a gas cooktop)? There are drawers beneath it now.
