This surface is hot, hot, hot.

inspired me to purchase a toaster oven
, and I have it now, and it is amazing. But I have a relatively small apartment kitchen. I would like to be able to store stuff on top of it, and the top gets molten hot, especially when I'm doing pizza at 450F. What can I put on top of it, as cheaply as possible, to provide heat insulation and a solid surface? It's approximately 18" x 24".

It's serving as my main oven at this point because my apartment oven is inconsistent and takes forever to preheat, hence not wanting to just move stuff off of it for occasional use. In case the dimensions are hard to visualize, this is quite large for a toaster oven; Breville makes a bamboo cutting board to put on top of theirs, but this is bigger. It does not actually need to serve as a cutting board, just an insulator that will block enough heat to, say, prevent a plastic container set there from melting.
