In pictures I've seen and as well as recommende in installation manuals, power burners are installed below the level of the counter. What's the reason for this? Safety? I don't understand why power burner should be below counter while a double burner is installed at counter level.

 

I guess my concer would be the cut out preventing large pots to fit onto the burner. Has anyone with power burner ever had fitment issue? I guess I could always make the cut out wider than the burner.

Assuming the power burner is for large pots, the lower installation allows you to see inside unless you are 7' tall. Some people make the mistake of building their islands too high, so this is another reason to have it lower. The problem there (higher counters) is their wives are handicapped as a result.

With 60,000 btus, a power burner would be used by some pretty large pots, like those used for crab, crawfish, shrimp boils. Safety and like DrDave said view-stir ability.
