I had one on my original stove & installation but removed it years ago as I didn't see any benefit, in my case.
That being said, I think most members here will advise in favor of one.
If this is your first stove/installation, for the very little money they cost I would probably recommend one, but see what others have to say.
(LOL...How's that for a definite maybe??)
