Does the job
Bought this as a thermal protection for an extremely hot older toaster oven. It does the job I needed, which is to protect the top from touching when it's on. The pad does let heat through but not so much that anyone will get burned now (oven can't be touched without the pad.) I don't think I'd leave any plastic on top of the oven even with this pad, but at least now you can handle the oven top safely.
ProsGood thermal protection.
ConsToo small for the high price. Would prefer a 2x2 size option.
