Welcome to the forums! If they are in different parts of the kitchen, I can't see the benefit of having a single thermostat, when the two will work independently of each other and control heat better than one will. Fill us in. It can be done, don't get me wrong, I just am curious as to why.

In theory, yes. But the feasibility depends on the details of your situation. You would need to run an adequately sized line from your panel to the new thermostat, and from there feed the two heaters, bypassing the internal stats. This may involve a complete rewiring of the heaters, so one initial question is whether you have access to all of the wiring routes. (I am ignoring wire/breaker sizing and heater specs.)

If you mean each heater has it's own circuit, you would need to rewire those circuits to an interior wall for the thermostat location. Ideally, you would feed both heaters with one circuit and only have one wall thermostat. You have not provided wattage of the heaters so without the full information, it is impossible to say if this would work.

What size is each heater? In either watts or amperage, as printed on the nameplates.
