This Bamboo Stovetop Cover with 1,600 Perfect Ratings Is the Secret to More Counter Space
Maybe years of cooking in tiny New York apartments have scarred me for life, but every time I walk into a new kitchen, I immediately look for ways to optimize counter space. I think every home cook would agree that no matter how big their kitchen is, there's no such thing as too much prep space. Large kitchens tend to get cluttered with gadgets, and small kitchens lack sufficient countertops to begin with. In both instances, prep space falls by the wayside, making mealtime stressful and inefficient. But in kitchens where counters are limited, stovetops are prime real estate. Wouldn't it be nice if all that room could be used for prep as well as cooking?
On a recent hunt for gadgets to help me maximize counter space, I stumbled upon this chic and convenient stovetop cover that does just that. Adjustable legs and durable bamboo make this board—which has over 1,600 five-star ratings on Amazon—a perfect option for turning your stove into a functional work surface.

The stovetop cover's adjustable, anti-slip legs allow it to safely rest on top of gas or electric burners and fit most stoves, turning previously wasted space into a functional surface area for food prep. Its sturdy construction and wide surface area make it ideal for chopping, mincing, and serving food—and it includes juice grooves to catch any runoff from meats and produce in the process.
The best part? It doubles as a cutting board and a charcuterie board. When not in use on the stovetop, just fold in the legs and put it to use as you would any standard cutting board. The cover is stylish enough to serve as the base for your next decorative cheese board thanks to its beautiful grain.
One reviewer called the stovetop cover the "best thing ever," adding, "This is literally one of the best purchases I've ever made on Amazon, hands down."
"This cutting board is the perfect dimensions, beautiful, and provides much needed extra counter space in a tiny kitchen," wrote another user.
