Default built in or built under single oven?

i'm confused by the terms above.

can anyone tell me if i could fit this oven under the worktop, and not
in a full height cabinet?

thanks

Whether you fit it in an under worktop unit or a full height unit is a
matter of personal preference and kitchen layout. I have never come
across an oven designed specifically for one but not the other.

Built under goes under a worktop. Built in may be the same, but is
more general as what it is built into doesn't need to be under the
worktop.

Measure the space available in your kitchen cupboards and see.

Yes - it will go under the worktop - this is the one I was going to
buy for my kitchen.
It is an easy for for the B&Q oven housing unit.

I'd go further and say that conventionally "built under" normally refers
to an oven/fridge/dishwasher etc which stands on the floor beneath a
worktop, in between two units; whereas "built in" refers to an oven
(usually) which is installed *within* a unit/housing.

Suppliers often don't get it though (eg on some of the online outlets
where you can search for appliances by category like "stainless steel"
"built-in" "built-under" etc frequently seem to get the terms muddled...
