Built-in cooker: The standard dimensions

When it comes to planning a kitchen with appliances, you also need the mounting dimensions for the stove. Which dimensions occur by default, and where there are deviations, you can read in this article.


Fitted kitchens are largely standardized in their dimensions. This also applies to the devices that can be installed in a kitchenette. However, one must reckon from device to device again and again with smaller deviations in individual dimensions.

Dimensions for built-in cookers

Height of herds

The height of all built-in cookers is always 85 cm. You can always count on this value as it applies to all kitchen appliances. This makes sense, as all kitchen appliances - from the fridge to the stove to the dishwasher - are always at the same height.

Depth of herds

Since kitchen units are always standardized in their dimensions, this also applies to built-in cookers. Their depth is always exactly 60 cm, so they can be installed in a kitchenette.

Width of built-in stoves

The width of built-in stoves is variable, but these variations are standardized. You can usually choose between a width of 50 cm (lying inside the niche) or 60 cm (lying on the niche).

Separate ovens

Even individual ovens that are only connected to the hob above, almost always meet standard dimensions: The width of the oven is here 55 cm, the front is usually a little narrower than the installation niche (usually 59.5 cm). The depth of built-in ovens is usually 57 cm. The designated niches are normalized.

Tips & Tricks

Ceran hobs sometimes have special cases. The size of hobs is not always the same, but may vary. Even over-widths of up to 90 cm are possible. In this case, you must make sure during the planning that the ceramic hob does not protrude over other, built-in appliances (such as the dishwasher). This can otherwise give technical problems, moreover, such installation of a ceramic hob is usually inadmissible.
