A smooth ceramic or glass stovetop is a sleek design choice for your kitchen, but keeping it looking shiny and new is a challenge. Between fingerprint smudges and scuffs from cookware, the appliance's surface can feel like a magnet for mess. So, if you're looking for a tool to protect your cooktop, Amazon shoppers can't stop raving about this simple cover.

With an average of 4.8 stars across more than 2,800 ratings, the Larsic Stove Cover is one of Amazon's top-selling cookware accessories. Made from thick rubber, the waterproof mat blocks spills and stains and provides a physical barrier from scratches. Plus, it's heat-resistant—the cover's bottom can withstand temperatures up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit, while the top can handle up to 392 degrees Fahrenheit if you need to rest a dish from the oven.

"I didn't realize the stovetops scratched so easily and had scratched mine," a second added. "I have a very small workspace in my kitchen. Now I don't have to worry about setting bags of groceries down on top of the stove or taking something out of the microwave and setting it down there."

The covers come in eight colors and a variety of sizes, from mini 14-inch by 11.5-inch mats to large options that protect 36-inch wide stoves. All are flexible enough to to roll up when not in use and can even bend to fit in the dishwasher for hands-free cleaning.
