A hob cover that works

We are making good progress in completing the loading and personalisation of Steel Away.

One item we were particularly interested in sorting out was some sort of cover for our hob, which, as you can see from the photographs, is located on a peninsular worktop in the galley, facing towards the saloon.


After much research I was able to come up with a solution from Hob Covers Direct. (www.hobcover.co.uk).   They offer a fair choice of styles and sizes and after some e-mail communication with the helpful owner of the comapany (Colin), we placed our order and 48 hours later we were in possesion of our hob cover.

I have now fitted it and we are very pleased with it.   As you can see, it serves 3 purposes:

P10202501.   A neat finish over the hob.

P10202522.   A splashback when cooking.

P10202513.   Some additional work space for food preparation.  (We cover it with a vinyl cloth when using it for this) to protect the stainless steel.

Once again, we have no connection with this company other than we have received a good product at at competitive price and excellent service.  On that basis alone, we are happy to recommend them.

  1. Thanks for the tip, David! – Roy has just ordered a hob cover for our Karanja, too. (I’m telling myself it doesn’t mean I can stop cleaning the hob itself…)


    1. Thank you for you kind comment Lesley-Jane. Our plan is to stay on the Thames until next Spring then head across the channel soon after that. We hope to meet you on our travels!
