Stove Burner Covers
Whether you're looking to protect your stove from spills and stains or you're trying to update the look of your kitchen, burner covers are a great solution. There's a variety of sizes and styles of stove top covers, so it's easy to find one to fit your needs. Practical and stylish, burner covers are a good investment for any kitchen.
What's the primary benefit of stove top covers?
The biggest benefit to adding a cover to your range is protection. When your burner has a cover on it, it is protected from spills. This saves time on cleanup. Additionally, burner covers can add visual variety in your kitchen, beyond the basic black that most of us have on our range.
Which burner covers are right for which stove top?
To determine which cover is right for you, there are three main factors to consider:
- Stove type: Covers are available for gas, electric, and smooth ceramic cooktops.
- Burner size: While most burners are standard sizes, be sure to take measurements to ensure your burner covers fit.
- Personal style: Burner covers come in a variety of colors, from basic black to custom colors to match your kitchen. Stove top covers also come in a variety of designs and patterns to match your style.
What are some of the patterns available for burner covers?
Besides basic black, some of the common cover patterns include flowers, roosters, or custom images designed to integrate with your kitchen. The style you choose is a matter of personal preference, and the beauty of stove top covers is that you can replace them easily if you decide you want a change.
How does one ensure the cover fits the burner?
Usually, standard sizes will fit your burners without a problem. Typically, a range will have two smaller burners around 8.5 inches in size and two larger burners around 10.5 inches. Because of this, standard large and standard small burner covers should fit your stove.
What other benefits can burner covers offer?
Besides protection for your stove, a cover can serve as an additional workspace in your kitchen. If you choose burner covers that fit your range and cover the entire top of the stove, you can use the covered area as a cutting board or work surface.
What materials are available for burner covers?
Burner covers may be made of glass, stainless steel, or other metals. When selecting your stove top covers, consider durability and cleanliness. How long will it last and is it easy to clean? The most important factor is to ensure the cover fits with your stove style and your kitchen decor.
