What can I use to catch crumbs and spills between the countertop and stove? I heard oven guards work great, but where can I purchase one from?

I am using the guards and have good luck with them. The only problem I have is that they are shorter than my stove and the counters. They have a magnetic strip that you place next to your stove to keep them in place.

I believe I ordered mine from Harriet Carter or one of those type catalogs.
