Cooktops - recessed or flush mount?

Why are some cooktops recessed in countertop ... and others flush mounted in the kitchen countertop? I would think the recessed ones might limit the size of large pots? Which do you have, and which do you prefer?

I can only speak for my Pheaton. The recessed cook top with folding cover will not limit the size of pot unless your your using a five gallon pot. The down side is that it uses up more counter space than is actually needed when open. Up side is that you have more counter space when not using the cook top.
Some others I've talked to use a flat flexible plastic sheet to cover the flush mount top when not in use either to gain counter space or just to protect the glass top.
I like the recessed but wish the recess was smaller. I think the recess was originally for a gas cook top but when they went to all electric they used the same counter top and simply added the induction cook top.
