Is this induction? I thought the cooktop doesn't get hot without a pan on it, and it's only mildly warm once the pan has been moved off. My DIL has one. She uses a paper towel between the pan and the burner, which always gives me a turn.

hugs,
charlotte

I would NOT go with anything quilted/fabric/dish towels,etc. I hadn't heard of the Noodle Boards before so I had to look them up. I think that's the perfect way to go for her. Hope you can convince her of something less flammable and dangerous than cloth. I'd rather have a non protected cook top than a house burned to ashes.

Back in the day...I did have ceramic type covers that fit over the coils ....but not until they were cool to the touch...again....ouch!
I did the exact same thing back in my college days! Spent weeks with a bandaged hand and all the doctor visits involved. Faint scars are still visible some 50 years later! I will not ever have an electric stove, coil or flat top! Ouch is right!!

after more reading the noodle boards only seem to be meant for gas stoves. i would never put something on top of my electric glass top stove. it's much too hot for much too long. I'd never remember to put the cover on by the time it finally cooled enough to be safe. So better safe than sorry. I hope this poster finds some other way of working things out in her kitchen.

My daughter made a noodle board for her stove top. It was very cute. Less expensive than purchasing one and very easy to make.

I purchased a silicone mat for my glass top stove. It works really well and gives me more counter space. I'm not too worried about it because silicone can handle extremely high heat. I believe it is made from the same thing as the silicone bakeware. I think it she got one, and you made a top for it, with the thermal backing, it would be okay. I would still discourage her from it though. 😁

Silicone can handle up to about 450F. Medium on a cooktop is around 350F; high is around 600-800F (depending on the cooktop). Silicone will not withstand a burner that's turned on High.

My SIL left one of their cordless phones on the induction cooktop... the phone melted.... and filled the house with smoke.... they had to vacate while the house aired and wash everything they could and throw out any food not still in it's original packaging..... DD was pregnant and could not even go near the house.....
Please ... just buy her a noodle board.

Thanks for the info. I wonder if it ever got too hot, would it melt onto the cooktop?

I don't understand how this could happen unless the phone had enough metal to make a magnetic connection. We have a portable induction burner and it only gets warm from the pan itself. You can turn the burner on and put your hand on it, and nothing happens. Maybe the phone was in a pot?
