Default Glass Screen Alternatives?

After seeing the mixed reviews on glass screen use I was wondering if anyone tried it out with a bobeche? They are considerably less expensive, obviously heat resistant and come in assorted patterns. Thoughts?

I had to look this up to find out what the hell a bobeche was , but I'm not sure how heat resistant one would be. Seeing that melted wax isn't that hot and they are mainly made just to protect surfaces from getting messed up.

I had thought of that, trying to determine how heat resistant one is.compared to a glass screen. Anyone know if they are made of Pyrex?

Dude the pan was heated on a coil burner. All the heat was concentrated on the bottom instead of being evenly distributed in an over....uneven thermal expansion and kaboom you have a splody pan!

yeah, I think sticking with Foil or dealing with the issues of Glass makes the most sense so far
