nothing works IMO, i ended up making sure there was a big enough gap to get a brush/vacuum hose in there

stop throwing it down there? wink

no, seriously, i don't think food regularly falls down the side of my cooker. i must be super careful, which is odd cos i'm not with anything else

DP is the chef most of the time - and he's a bloody good cook.

However he is one of those large men for whom the rest of the world is simply too small and fiddly - hence mess.

Considering lining the gaps between the cooker and cupboards with tin foil for ease of filth removal.

Was hoping to be pointed to some wonder-gadjet from lakeland or something grin

ahhh... built in hob. that's what you need lol

but actually, tin foil would work!

although, i think it's your DP who ought to be asking this question, after all, if he is the one making the mess he ought to be cleaning it up

Oh he'll be cleaning it up!

Just wondering if there was a magic solution/preventative measure.

I have this problem. Am thinking of buying a thick piece of wood ( same colour as my cupboards) from wikes and putting it down the side x

There are things that you can get to join the counter and the hob together. Let me see if I can find them on the net.

I'm a bit sad as I had invented exactly that product in my mind.... Can't buy it here though?

<works on next million-dollar idea>

I have definitely seen the things in that link and I'm sure it must have been in Lakeland but not on their website (could email them?). Can't imagine where else I would have seen it. We have about a 1cm gap either side of our oven. I try not to think about what's down there...
