I used these magnetic board from Ikea and trimed off the 1/2" lip with a grinder/cutter tool. It didn't take too long and wasn't really necessary, but I wanted it flush to the wall. They come in silver (looks like ss) and white.

But I wanted red because I needed some color on the walls so that's why I sprayed it red. Everything went very quickly and cost in the store was $10.99 each for a total of $26 with the spray paint
. I used double sided tape, but when I reattached it I will also run a bead of 3M caulk/adhesive around the bottom and top to make sure the tape holds it well when stored during summer heat. It rests on the top of the little 2 1/2" or so backspash that's built into the base cabinet so it doesn't need a lot to keep it up. I also, but a couple of metal mirror clips under the bottom of my stove vent that helps hold the top in place. It is exactly the height to cover from the top of the lower cabinet to the bottom of the vent. I'll post picture after I pick up the Scamp
from the repair shop (repacking wheel bearings), and reinstall the backsplash.
