I have my own version of the cooktop-cover: circular wooden plate turned over and used. I've been eyeing many of the cooktop-covers mentioned in Instant Pot groups. Some cover half the range, some cover it entirely. The price of the good-looking ones puts me off. I should get one, I think. Anyway, all the gas stove metal grates (circular cast-iron thingie) are removed as I rarely light up the gas stove now. Only using the IP's.
