Cooking Cabinet Photos Please?

I'd like to see photos of anyone's cooking cabinet, how they have the stove and other stuff arranged.

I picked up a silverware tray from SMB Texas while there and the fit seems odd at best, so I'm most interested in the stove and tray as "factory" and as people actually use them.

I flipped the frame rail (marked w/ red arrow) so the silverware tray SMB Texas gave me would stand up off the stove. With both rails in the original position the tray only fit directly on top of the stove, with them both flipped it wouldn't clear the metal catch for the door.

This is the best I can come up with. Hopefully the tray doesn't bounce off the left edge when driving. I can't help but feel like I've got the wrong tray for this cabinet...

you flipped the right rail over from where it was? Would the tray not fit on it with it in the other orientation (which is the way I seem to remember it).

Yes, they were both rail-on-top. The tray barely fits between the black side posts and is as tall as from the stove to the rail-on-top (which leaves the tray sitting directly on the stove) or from the top black cross member to the rail-on-bottom (where the tab gets in the way).

This way at least the tray and stove are independant, I can put hte stove back hot etc.

The PO was kind of an anti-noise fanatic, there is a bunch of stuff that makes me think silverware rattling around would have been more than enough reason for him to trash the original tray.

We found that the cutlery tray wasn't a good use of space, and so replaced it with two mesh baskets we found at a Walmart-type store, that happen to fit pretty well in the space:

The trays at Fresno were super flimsy so I elected to keep my mis-fitting Texas tray. It flops off the rails, but it seems the Fresno tray would buckle and fall through anyway.

I think it's interesting how differently people use this cabinet!

Cooking cabinet

That's a cooking cabinet? I thought it was the wine cellar. A case of wine fits perfectly in the lower cabinet on the cargo door and we use the upper cabinet for silverware, wine openers, pouring spouts and other gadgets.

Ed, I like the way you think. One of the things I'm looking forward to using the SMB for is wine tours.

Yes to more wine tours! The 2.7 cubic foot refrig's freezer also nicely holds two bottles of white wine for quick chilling.

When we picked up the SMB last fall, we drove back from Fresno through eastern Washington, and stocked up on local vintages. Of course, after shelling out nearly $100K for an SMB, there wasn't that much cash left for wine.

I'll take two adult tickets to the Buji Inagural Wine Tour. Thanks for driving.
