Hey all my search-fu isn't working so well tonight, so I'm starting a new thread.
What/how are you guys and gals insulating the bottom of your E-kettles? I'm going to put mine on a cheap-o Ikea counter top, and don't want to burn it.
I'm thinking either a wood disc (not so sexy) under the brew kettle, or maybe a piece of 1/4" neoprene -- sexy, but quite possibly a problem when cleanup comes around. Also, finding a piece big enough for my kettle might $$.
So what are you guys using?
