Recessed outlets & electric ranges

What % of electric ranges require recessed outlets?

I just bought a freestanding Maytag Gemini double oven(hasn't arrived yet) and read a review that said a recessed outlet was needed. %22recessed outlet%22 %22gemini%22&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=1

Last summer I had an electrician install a 220v outlet so I could eventually replace my gas range. The outlet he installed isn't recessed.

Do I need to have another electrician "recess" the outlet and remove the gas pipe coming up through the floor that also isn't recessed?

I hope my ignorance last summer won't cost me. The electrician never brought up the possibility of needing a recessed outlet. At the time I thought it would've looked better recessed but didn't ask. I thought I was saving $($150/HOUR LABOR) by not asking it be recessed at the time since I figured it was "only" a superficial thing.

Thank you.

It might be better to post this on the Electrical forum.
