Pull out pantry distance from oven

Hi there

I'm having a new kitchen installed and I have a 300mm x 600mm cupboard next to the oven - I've been advised that I can't have a pull out pantry style here due to safety regulations but I can't find any such regulations online - any ideas on this please? I've seen ovens next to pull out pantries before.

Hi Melanie,

The guidelines usually relate to 600mm vertical clearance above gas hotplates and would usually specify non combustible splash backs around all cooktops including returns against cupboards.

Could you please send through the specific information from the person who told you and email it to editorial@build.com.au?
