AbstractA shelf assembly is disclosed for use with an appliance. The appliance has a top work surface with opposing side edges and a control panel disposed at a rear portion of and extending above the top work surface. The shelf assembly comprises a tray for providing an additional work surface and having opposite first and second ends. First and second side support panels are disposed substantially vertically and each has a top end adapted to be attached to a corresponding one of the first and second ends of said tray and a bottom end adapted for resting upon the top work surface. A bracket extends between and is attached at opposite ends to the first and second side support panels, respectively. The bracket has at least one foot disposed at a height above the top work surface and rests on the top of the control panel to steady the shelf assembly and to orient the additional work surface horizontally.
