I cover the racks on both my oven and toaster oven. It still conducts heat evenly and there is minimal mess for unfortunate spills. All I have to do is replace it every so often. I agree that setting the foil directly on the oven top (where the heat is direct) would be a mistake.

I have FINALLY purchase two of these beauties after drooling over them for so long this past weekend. While they are under $50 I don't find them any more expensive than other rolling carts that I have seen. The only thing about Ikea products is that you have to build them yourself, that said two glasses of wine and some classic music made the chore easy as is. The first one I made into a bar cart and the second I am contemplating placing all the extra cookbooks that don't fit in the bookshelf. Just saw one of the above pics and it made me realize how many uses this little workhorse has <3...love, love, love
