I ordered a cutting board from Amazon that fits over my induction two burner cooktop. My husband put feet on it so it protect plus I can use it for other things as well. Bed, bath, and beyond also had one that I think was big enough to fit.

Gary next time you and Dee are in Middlebury one of the shops on the road between Middlebury and Shipshewana has Amish homemade cutting boards that are very nice and reasonably priced. They will custom make one on request to the size and style that you want. That’s the path we are on. And yes the stove top will shatter in a heartbeat, as when I was working above the microwave a Flashlight rolled out the area above the microwave and needless to say we were purchasing a new cook table.

A friend who owns a wood shop made me one to order out of Black Walnut what completely covers the cooktop. It is very attractive and match’s our cabinets. Less than 200 bucks

I would use a silicone mat, https://www.amazon.com/Non-slip-Meas...gateway&sr=8-4, it would be protective of the glass top. You could also use silicone pot holders, https://www.amazon.com/Tonmidej-Sili...gateway&sr=8-7, they are thicker and have more cushion. You could also consider silicone pet water bowl mats, https://www.amazon.com/PetFusion-Ext...%2C216&sr=8-24. Lots of choices in silicone depending on the size required. They are also easy to cut to size.

One of the nice things about an induction cooktop is it can't come on unless there's something that will attract a magnet sitting on a burner. The downside of this is if you lift a pan off the burner, perhaps to make flipping something in the pan easier, the burner will shut off.

I found a guy in Ft. Myers who is making me a weave pattern cutting board about one inch larger than the cooktop dimensions. A board that size would typically have a “juice rail” routed into one side of the board. I asked him to route out all the material inside that rail to the same depth so that it will fit completely over the cooktop and sit flush on the countertop. This will keep it in place when cutting, but will still put it on bed in the back when underway. The checkerboard look will go with the backsplash. Will have it in a couple weeks and will post pic if it works. If not, I will have a very large turkey carving board for sale!
We have one of the Husky tool bench tops now but it should not be used as a cutting board because of the coating and soft wood.

Thanks for all the good ideas. I firmly believe that anyone who leaves the induction cooktop open with no cover is just asking for something to be dropped on it and make it completely useless. Its only a matter of time.

And as Linda said earlier, the counter in the 2019 Cornerstone, and maybe other models, is now made out of really thick and heavy granite. The cooktop cover that they now give you is a solid piece of granite that takes 2 teenage football players to lift it up and put it into its storage location above the microwave. It could not be any less appropriate for the average person (woman or man) who works in the kitchen. Its heavy, it clumsy, and its inconvenient as hell to get it out and back in. We immediately removed it from the coach and it is in the attic at the S&B.

We have been using one of those vinyl or fake leather pads that you stand on for long periods of time. It happens to be from Walmart or somewhere similar. It just covers the cooktop surface area, and provides maybe a half inch of foam cushioning, and a waterproof surface. When hand washing dishes, we put the vinyl pad on top of the induction, then a dish towel on top of that and all the wet dishes set off for drying on top of the dishtowel. Works pretty well. I will look into the wood boards that have been mentioned and find one that will both fit and also fit easily into the storage compartment.
