Stove cover for two burner stove

We found a great and functional stove cover that is also a bamboo cutting board; it is located at http://www.improvementscatalog.com/p...tting-board.do . We ordered one and it seems great, but we won't be able to fully test it until February when we pick up our new 19ft.! $20 plus shipping.

Re: Stove cover for two burner stove

How did it work out? Did it fit?

Re: Stove cover for two burner stove

Yes, it worked great. We had to raise it up a bit, but otherwise it is great and covers the two burner stove quite well! It adds more usable surface to the counter. I also found the same cutting board at a local housewares outlet store (same price, no shipping). As you can see from the first photo, it almost covers the stove from front to back; there is about 1/2" on either side that shows from below the board. It fits with room to spare lengthwise. The legs (other photo) that were added consist of a plastic floor protector that you can nail on the bottom of chairs. I added a small round of cork to keep it from sliding as much. I think I used super glue to secure it. This raised the board up more than enough from the stove burners. We like it because it is more useful than the typical enamel stove covers.

Re: Stove cover for two burner stove

Linda, I really like the idea of using a cutting board for a stove cover.

And I think you posted elsewhere that you ordered your camper without the range hood. Is that working out well for you?

Re: Stove cover for two burner stove

Also check out this possiblity for a stove cover/cutting board combination.

Camco 43753 RV Stoveaway Topper Cutting Board

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...NY81HPYPHZX1WH

It's 17" x 19.5" x .75" and $32.31.
I presume it sits directly on the burners.

Re: Stove cover for two burner stove

Liz,
We did leave out the range hood and also swapped the kitchen sink and range (locations). Since the range is closer to the door and also the Maxx Air fan, there has been no need for us to have a hood/fan. We did this because we wanted it to be more open in our Escape and we have no regrets. We haven't had any issues due to leaving out the hood. We also added another light above the stove to take the place of the one that would have been in the hood.

Re: Stove cover for two burner stove

Linda, I'm glad to hear the no-range-hood version is working for you, since we, too, would prefer a more open camper. Thanks for mentioning your extra light since that wouldn't have occurred to me.

Re: Stove cover for two burner stove

We have the range hood. I've used the fan twice. Sounds like a jet taking off in the confines of the trailer.

As long as my wife does the inside cooking, the fan is loud and minimally effective.

If and when I cook, it is usually BBQ style so the fan (and smoke detector) may be useful.

Re: Stove cover for two burner stove

You all make me laugh! Has no one any kind words at all for the range hood?
