bosch-slide-in-range-close-up By Dan Nesovic|2017-06-27T20:46:28+00:00May 31st, 2017|4 Comments 4 Comments Bateman August 15, 2019 at 8:41 pm - Reply Thanks for this blog and article. Clears up some confusing appliance shopping! I dislike any stainless appliances. And, I must have the counter-top flange seal resting on counter-top. Therefore, for me, the only appliance I want is the Bosch-with-flange which is high quality, easy to use, and a reasonably priced slide-in, and has good reviews and matches my other Bosch appliances. I cannot find their regular black for the slide-in range, like my other older Bosch appliances which come in a solid black tone and finish. There is only the Bosch “black-stainless steel” option now (2019) for their slide-in range which sort of looks like a blue-gray, with a striped like see-through material that looks fragile, and that does not blend well with my other Bosch solid black appliances. Since my old slide-in black Maytag range is still working, I am waiting out all manufacturers hoping they soon realize they’ve limited their pool of buyers by eliminating their slide-in range great flanges. I would buy any of the better brands today if they had the flanges that seal to the counter top in solid black. I hope Bosch keeps the slide-in flange, and improves color selections in 2020. Good luck to me, right? Dan Nesovic August 15, 2019 at 10:47 pm - Reply Thanks for the feedback. Only a few years ago bosch still made black. You may want to look at the GE slide ins, they are not owned by whirlpool like all the other mfg in this country (our justice dept is really not doing its job stopping manopolies which is what caused this problem) I have heard that GE still makes real slide ins.

Dan Nesovic November 28, 2020 at 7:58 pm - Reply Sorry for the delay in response been writing on other topics. The standard counter over hang is 1.5″. The older model slide ins did have issues that required a notch in the counter to install properly. I have had experience with the only two true inexpensive slide ins the Bosch and Samsung. Both do not require a notch in the counter edge and both slide in all the way to the wall or splash. Hope that info helps.
