A viewer sent the following question in response to our video on particleboard cabinets:

Are particle board cabinets safe to use next to an oven?

– Joy


Most ovens are made to slip and insert into a wooden cabinet, and the particle board would be no problem to use in this manner. The countertop would normally have a finished end as it butts up to the oven cabinet.

Good luck with your project!
