I too, used to put foil on the bottom of my oven. Worked like a charm. Until. Until the new oven. The new oven has a "hidden" lower element. The element is actually below the bottom wall of the oven cavity. With this design, that the "floor" of the oven gets insanely hot, and did an excellent job of melting the foil I had so fastidiously arranged. Melted aluminium foil mess in my brand new oven. Toilet bowl cleaner/hydrochloric acid, helped, ( but the stain is still there. Taunting me. Every time I open the oven. Please do not use aluminium foil on the floor of ovens with "hidden" lower elements unless you're OK with your oven to taunting you for years to come. Chocolate chip cookies in to bake ... remember the foil. Roast in for dinner ... remember the foil. Sigh.

Chaos amoeba you reduced my exquisite cup of Intelligencia coffee to a very inelegant spit take. Well done.

Masking tape. Even makes it through the dishwasher (by mistake, obviously).

Even better if you can save a stoppered bottle like those used on prosecco and Grolsch beer bottles.

Save a pretty wine bottle. Fill with water. Place on table. Voila! Free and very chic.

Masking tape. Sharpie. Done. Stays on in the freezer & even through the dishwasher. Peels off like a breeze. No sticky left behind. Perfect.

Had mine set up exactly like this. Worked like a charm for years in my cramped kitchen. Helps if you have an array of handle styles and have a system for which size goes where.

FYI on this outdated thread - I recovered the sofa and extraordinarily happy. It wasn't cheap, $2500, but worth every penny. It looks fantastic & the down-wrapped foam cushions are heavenly. Thanks to all for their input - helped me turn a bargain into my favourite piece of furniture.

Flip top chrome and glass cellar, like AB uses in Good Eats. Handy one-handed operation. Covered so I can keep it near the stovetop without corrupting the crystals. Dishwasher safe. Perfect.
