Our oven was a bit high up in that it was in a floor intended oven unit
but on a worktop (albeit without legs), so it was right in your face.
Kitchen redesign will have it in a lower position.
It's in a temporary housing ATM between waist/chest height and when
opened it steams my glasses up.
So i'm thinking of having it too high again.
Just wondering where folk have their ovens?
With the bottom of the oven approx level with the worktop. This makes
an easy access to the oven but the grill may be a little high
With this revamp the fridge is in a similar unit and we have a separate
free standing freezer. ~This was done because fridga /freezer units can
not give the freezer space we need for fruit from the garden and we have
too litle freezer space with a buiult in fridge/freezer unit

We have what might be described as a "mock double oven".
Single oven starting about 600mm up from the floor.
Combination microwave and oven starting at 1200mm from the floor.
For me it is important to have the top of the top oven at around eye level.
The Bosch combi which we use most is at this height.
The single oven below is a little low as you have to stoop to get stuff in
and out and the grill is below eye level but is far more user friendly
than an under worktop oven.

Free standing with a grille at (low to me as I'm 6'2") eye level. ;-)
No form over function here and easy to replace without having to re-do
'She' CGAF either, especially as I do most the cooking. ;-)

The oven is a Creda Double oven quite old now, maybe 30 years. It is in
a Magnet double oven unit, 46cm above floor. We have a rarely used Bosch
microwave unit above it. I was surprised to find that many double ovens
are the same size so it was possible to buy a suitable kitchen unit. I
used steel angle iron to reinforce the kitchen unit as the oven is quite
heavy. The main oven is a suitable height for removing heavy hot items
such as the turkey at Christmas.
One (fan oven with grill) is, about, waist height- may be a bit lower.
(Glasses steaming is an issue!)
The second (a combi- ie fan/microwave/grill ) is above it. Never
noticed glasses steaming but it is mainly used for warming plates etc,
sometimes if we are cooking a lot of things.
A third, free standing, combi (long story) stands on the bench. Mainly
used on uWave, even then for warming milk to make coffee so can't say
I've noticed the glasses problem.
