ceramic tile

o.k. guys, here's a question. my hubby and i are having a disagreement over putting in ceramic tile. i know we have to pull out the vinyl, i know we have to put it under the dishwasher. here's what we don't know. we've been told to put the tile under the new cabinets and we've been told not to put it under the cabinets. any thoughts on this? and please tell me the pros and cons.
i know it will take more tile to go under cabs, but will they sit level?

unless you are planning to redo the cabinets anyway then leave them and go around them.The dishwasher has to stay and then you tile up to the feet and the cover plate will hide where the tile ends,you don't have the clearance to tile under then replace the dishwasher.

If you plan on pulling the cabinets and replacing them then tile under the cabinet space and then you can level the base cabinets using shims

yes, we are getting new cabinets. we already have the new ones ordered and the old ones out. so you say tile the whole floor, then put everything back in. is that right?
