Some time ago I bought a good quality griddle - about 20 inches long, non-stick, and just wide enough to fit over both burners on the stove. I use it for everything - toasted sandwiches, eggs and bacon with toast grilling at the same time, and anything else that an electric burner and/or frying pan can do. If I am using only half of the griddle, only one burner is lit. If both are lit, then I can put a pan of water on to heat for dishes later. ; But the best thing about this griddle is that once it is literally wiped clean, I wrap it with that non-slip drawer liner, place it back on the burners, topped with a tray with 1 1/2 inch sides that is piled up with my fruit basket, breads and rolls and other items that do not need to be rolling around while under way. Eureka - no storage problem. If I need to use a burner, the griddle and tray sit on top of the wardrobe until ready to stow again. I think the griddle I bought was less that $20.00 at either Wal-Mart or K-Mart. It is worth it to pay a little extra for a heavier model. Then there is no flexing while it heats up.
