My sister did this to our glass cooktop. We haven't replaced it, doesn't seem to be much need. We might like a little more cooking space but the glass was such a hassle to clean up I don't really want to tempt fate.

How about a folding stainless lid. You can get the holes over the burner cut out by lazer, no turning the stove on and not noticing.

Do not have a glass shop make a cover to save a few bucks. Those must be tempered glass for safety...shops cannot cut tempered.


I agree in that a glass shop cannot cut tempered glass. But, I've been down this path twice with a side window on my trailer so I can say that a glass shop can help you. They just measure out the dimensions and location of the holes and make a template. Then they order the piece from the glass manufacturer who cuts and drills it and then tempers it before shipping.

All that being said it will probably be much cheaper to order the 99 dollar one posted.

If it were me, I'd go with the person who said get something fire safe.

Maybe you feel you have learned your lesson and you guys will never do it again, but me, I would definitely do it again someday.

Sheet metal, FTW.
