Wow, that sounds cheap. When I looked, I found that the steam ovens (only) started from $3000. I was looking at the European brands.
Rangehood for raked ceiling??
I'm having trouble linking images, but this house has a raked ceiling and they have a side exhaust built into the bit sticking out of the bench.
I just spoke with the cabinet maker, he said they make it stick out 20mm because it is vinyl wrap kitchen and if it is flush, the heat will damage…
Sorry, i don't have any idea on that. give some more idea.

no gas to stove top

Freestanding Oven or not?
Fairly minimal gap - whatever my kitchen designer drew up? Wouldn't be more then 2cm on each side, if even that.
No kickboard - the stove came with a vented kickboard like panel.
