In lieu of a door, the Lift Oven's bottom drops down to the countertop, allowing access from three sides and saving you from having to hoist hot, heavy casseroles. It's a fine centerpiece to a modern kitchen or as an eye-catching under-cabinet retrofit. Leave the bottom down and it also doubles as a 24-inch-wide ceramic cook top.
