Hob covers- other names?

Just a quick question-
I'm looking on ebay for bold flowery 70s or 60s versions of these things-

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/New-Set-of-4-BLACK-Enamel-Electric-Oven-Hob-Covers_W0QQitemZ380053249073QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item380053249073&_trkparms=72%3A1121%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&timeout=1218814881636#ebayphotohosting

I know them as hob covers, but it only seems to be sellers in the UK that have something matching that description, and there aren't any I want. It seems like there must be another name for them in other english speaking countries that I need to search for instead. What would you call them, Americans, Canadians or Aussies?
