I saw in someone's reno that they had put a sheet of stainless steel behind the stove to cover the wall. I thought it was very clever. What is that piece called, and does anyone have a picture of it before mounting? Is it just a sheet of stainless with holes for screws in it?
Or you could get a piece of stainless from a metal shop or if you want a standard 30" wide piece, Home Depot has them in the same area as the range hoods. They mount with 4 screws and are fairly easy to install.
Eva, Is it possible to mount without the screws? I have this vision of ugly screws showing in the four corners. Is the ss at HD good quality? I've been toying with the idea of using ss behind the range, except that mine is a freestanding.
Mine was nice quality. The screws that will show are at the very top corners...the bottom screws are behind the range so they won't show at all. If you want you can get some nice finish washers and screws that will look very nice.

My mother used stainless behind our avocado range (that coordinated with the avocado fridge, pantry, knobs, countertops, glasses and dishes) in the 70s. Oh, and the avocado French Provincial chairs, lamps and accent pieces in the living room. Green was her favorite color, so the avocado craze was right up her alley! I think it looked better than harvest gold ...
Anyway, this thread brought it all back to me—the happy memories of Mama and the nightmare of all that avocado!
I mounted a stainless panel behind my stove and avoiding the look of screws by using liquid nails at the top where it is visible, but used screws behind the stove at the bottom. This way the weight of the panel is supported, and the adhesive only needs to hold the panel flush to the wall.
mine is one of the imperativ panels, its really only temporary until we do the tile backsplash and so its only attached at the bottom with screws behind the range - that was enough to keep it flush to the wall. The rail system that comes with imperativ seems good as well, but it was overkill for this purpose
I was watching an epidsode with Candice Olson where they used something like FX sheeting as a backsplash and put glass over it for easy cleaning and of course to protect it from melting from the heat!! Another alternative.
