Bid farewell to scorched sauces and pots boiled dry with the simmermat. This high quality steel mat controls the temperature of your cooking surface for long, slow simmering. Size: 7. 75″ W x 7. 75″ L.
Made from zero-carbon enameled steel with an enamel exterior finish.
I was very pleased to find this product. I used to use what was called an asbestos pad on the stove in the same matter, and can’t seem to find it. I use it most for warming up food quickly without the microwave, such as a piece of meat, just wrap it in foil then on the burner pad, it heats up very quickly.
Its also good for cooking sauces without burning it. I have a wonderful stove top, its new, and it has all the controls for super low, and very high heat, but it never fails, every time I make tomato sauce, I can’t get it regulated to the right temp.
Its either too low, or too high, so this pad helps allot to make sure it doesn’t burn. Once your sauce gets burned its almost no good any more, because it now has a burnt taste to , so we want to avoid that from happening.
This diffuser was an unplanned purchase. We were shopping at BB&B about six months ago and my husband spotted them hanging on a rack and put one in our basket. When he showed it to me, I was skeptical because it is not very thick.
I couldn’t see how it could do the job efficiently, but decided to go ahead and buy it and give it a try. I liked it so much, I actually ordered another one and it just arrived last week. I’ve also recommended it to several other friends who have also been pleased with it.
One thing you have to remember is NOT to wash it, unless you dry it completely, and certainly don’t immerse it in water or soak it. The few times I’ve had to clean mine, I put it on the stove and turn the burner on low for a few minutes to be sure it dried thoroughly.
If you don’t do that, it will rust because it is made of iron. I’ve never used mine on anything but gas burners because I have a gas cooktop, but it works beautifully for me. I use a low flame and I’ve never had anything stick when I’ve used it.
It is relatively expensive, but well worth the investment if you cook much, and I do!.
I love to make fudge. I have frequently had problems getting temperature on my glass top stove low enough not to scorch and high enough to get the mixture to reach the “soft ball” stage. This has completely solved my problem.
I’ve made two batches of fudge in the past week, and they are probably the best I’ve ever made. Since this product was not available at store, the clerk ordered it on line for me and had it shipped directly to my address.
I was even able to use my $5 coupon which made this product a real bargain! Similar products are available at high-end gourmet stores, but not only are they more expensive, they don’t appear to be compatible with glass stove tops.
This stove-top heat diffuser is made of a tin surface with cool wood handle and hang strap. Measures 8-1/2″ in diameter. Distributes heat evenly across pots, pans, and kettles to allow food to simmer and cook evenly.
Prevents burning or scorching. Safe for glassware and porcelain as well. Can be used on electric or gas stove tops. Hand wash.
Used this with my gas stove and it was awful. Shortly after turning on the stove there was a strong chemical-y, bonfire-y smell. I looked to make sure the handle hadn’t accidentally ended up over the flame but this wasn’t the case.
I was able to finish up heating up what was on the stove but after the one use on medium heat it turned multicolored and rusty on one side and bubbled enamel on the other. It has a sort of tinny rattle to it and part of the handle crumbled off (even though it was a very safe distance from the flame).
It smelled awful, did not do a good job of the diffusing the heat, and the handle crumbled and came off altogether. was so annoyed and grossed out I just threw it away. The smell was just awful. Product quality definitely reflects the price.
I’m so happy to have found these! I have one that was my mother’s and is probably 70 years old – looks exactly the same. It’s showing a bit of wear, but I actually just wanted a couple more. Please note that they are NOT supposed to be used on too high a heat! They are best used when you just want to keep something warm, but don’t want to burn it (like a gravy when the rest of the meal is still in the oven, or keep water just warm enough).
My gas stovetop is still quite hot, even on low, so I use this to diffuse the heat so it doesn’t burn the pan/food in the spots where the flames meet the pan. Note that the handle connection IS quite flimsy, so NEVER lift the pan with the diffuser.
But used correctly, they will save you decades of overheating heartbreak!.
You really have to play around with this unit to get the full advantage. The older unit I had is identical to this one from years ago. It really makes heating up soup a lot simpler though it adds time to the cooking.
On this electric stove I have it takes maybe two or more numbers upwards to cook properly and bring the soup to a near boil. It works! There are no scotched pans when using it. I am surprised that Walmart does not carry this item on the shelf.
If word got out how handy this is with the heat resistant handle they couldn’t keep it on the shelf. And it is very good price wise.
Ilsa 17. 8cm Cast Iron Heat Diffuser One of the most important elements of stovetop cooking is even heat. That’s one of the reasons why cooks worldwide turn to cast iron cookware. However, cast iron cookware typically requires a considerable amount of care and attention and it is heavy, for your wrists and shelves.
With the Harold Import Cast Iron Heat Diffuser you can have the even heat of cast iron cookware, without having to use cast iron cookware. Simply place the diffuser on your electric or gas burner then place your regular pots and pans on top of the diffuser.
Voila. No more hot spots; even heat for all of your culinary creations. Includes stainless steel handle for safety and convenience. Cast iron. 17. 8cm in diameter.
Perfect! Heavy-duty, not flimsy like others even at the same price. The handle is easy to put on & take off. I don’t use it much, just leave it on the burner where it’s handy. It fits the flame circle of all my burners, and it did stop sticking or burning.
(Especially when I cook apples to make apple sauce in a large pot with a thin bottom. ).
Distribute heat evenly and eliminate the need to stir food while cooking by using this heat diffuser with pots and pans. The diffuser is made from black enameled cast iron and comes with a removable handle.
The diffuser is meant for use with gas stoves and helps to channel heat toward the central opening which helps save energy. The diffuser also keeps the flame from directly hitting your pots and pans to help keep them looking new.
This is my second diffuser. The Ilsa is exceedingly well designed and made. The handle works well to move it off a hot burner. I have transitioned to traditional cooking methods using pottery and soapstone cookware.
I must use a diffuser since my stove-top is glass. I purchased a second Ilsa diffuser because I was so impressed with the first one. I highly recommend this product. In the photo, the edge of the diffuser can be seen under the tagine.
HICs Heat Diffuser reduces heat from burners on both electric and gas stovetops. Heat is distributed evenly to eliminate hot spots in pans and keep foods from scorching.

Its durable, lightweight and sturdy, and it wont rust. The longer stay-cool handle keeps hands safely away from heat and is easily removed for compact storage. Measures 40cm long, and 21cm in diameter.
As a nanny in Paris, I noticed that every kitchen I was in had a tool which I had never seen. Despite my limited French, I ascertained that this tool was used to prevent foods on a low flame from scorching- it was called a diffuseur.
I have owned many since my return from France years ago, and often give them as house warming gifts to people who cook- they are the best kitchen helper I have ever known!.
I love this diffuser. We had an old tin one, with the wood handle, and we used it until it was caved-in in the middle and half the holes were plugged by scale. I was a bit hesitant to buy the stainless steel one, thinking it might not conduct well enough, and it was thinner than the tin models.
I needn’t have worried. It works like a charm, and the stainless steel is much stronger than the tin, despite being thinner and less built-up. I’ve even grown to like the detachable handle. So, if you have an electric burner stove and you’re a bit lazy like me, and don’t like to have to stand there all the time stirring, this might be just the thing for you.
Eliminate scorching and tame the flame with the Nordicware 8” heat diffuser. Made from aluminized steel, the plate evenly distributes heat and prevents hot spots. Sauces come out evenly cooked without burning and sticking.
Great for gentle applications like warming butter and for keeping food warm.
Love this Diffuser. It really keeps the high heat controlled on my gas range when using my saucepans and large pots. It doesn’t burn the food inside. Great product recommended by Rachael Ray via email.
Works like a charm. Will be purchasing 3 more in the near future. They also look good. My burners are the ceramic enclosed burner which sometimes/most of the time scorches the food on the bottom of the pan as it cooks.
The kitchen heat diffuser is heavy duty and kept my rice from drying out and burning on. It helped diffuse heat under my cast iron fry pan for better use of the pan surface area. I am glad I finally bought it.
Make your time in the kitchen more productive with these Everyday Kitchen Helpers. Scorching and boilovers will be mistakes of the past with this Burner Plate for electric stoves. Unlike coils, this plate provides constant, even heat on a solid, easy-to-clean surface.
It also retains heat longer so you can cook at lower temperatures. Fits right over the burner and diffuses the heat to help prevent hot spots in your pan. The Oil Straining Pot holds the used oil from your fryer or pan and lets it cool for reuse.
Has a mesh screen that separates out the food particles. Includes a lid. The Splatter Shield helps to contain and minimize messes. Consisting of 3 panels, it can be unfolded and placed around pans or mixing bowls to catch splatters and make cleanup quicker and easier.
I really wanted a cover aesthetic reason. I’m using it and the heat seems to stay better. It seems that I can turn the burner lower and still get the same amount of heat. Lid also keeps food from falling into the burner.
Both purposes work well for me. I wish the larger size was available.
Awhile ago I ordered the ceramic grease pot/strainer it was a bit small but did great at what it was intended for ,then my hubby dropped the lid which shattered ,but we still used it just placed the cool grease into another container.
Then the strainer broke not sure how since it was sitting on the counter ,maybe a difference in temperature. So I seen this metal one and brought it ,it is much bigger then the ceramic one ,a bit thinner metal but it strains great ,we use it all the time.
My electric burners on my apartment stove don’t heat up evenly so I kept getting hot spots on my pots/pans when I cooked and food would cook unevenly unless I kept moving food around. Now my small and large plates that go over the burners keeps everything cooking evenly.
I hope they hold up for a long time. They fit the burners very well,.

This pack of four includes two large and two small burner covers. These covers are easy to remove and adds extra counter space to your kitchen.
Needed splatter covers for my range. Only knew of the types with printed flowers and the like plus they are inexpensive types. The sales rep recommended the stainless steel. Wow! They are durable , clean up easy from spills, quite handsome & a nice addition to my kitchen! And a couple dollars more.
I needed covers for the burners so my cat would stop burning his face on them. He would always go smell the burners when we weren’t around, so I decided to try these! They are awesome! Just what we needed.
Our cat now sees them on the stove and just walks around them.
Metaltex Gas Hob only Heat Diffuser in Stainless Steel 21 cm Product gallery Product Description tin plated Features Ideal for spreading heat. Items dispatch from various location, including our international warehouses.
Bought for specific use in camper van to enable me to use a sandwich toaster / pie warmer. Dimensions were exactly right for hob. Works extremely well, giving a wide, gentle, slow heat as advertised.
I thought the handle might get in the way but it doesnt, and the fact that it folds means easy storage is possible. Just leaving it in situ after use, its fine to store once cooled. Arrived when said it would.
The Heat Diffuser is the perfect aid for improved heat control. Simply place this 10″ metal disc on the grate over your burner to help spread and equalize the heat. It is great for use with griddles, pots, and Dutch ovens.
I’m agreeing with one or two reviews that mentioned rust. I don’t know how to fix that but regardless, I’m so glad I heard about this item and got one. I’m using it on an old kitchen stove that has small burners.
My nice skillets and pans have worn faster than I think they would have if I’d had this heat tamer sooner. So I recently bought a new non-stick skillet and a new multi-use pot. I wanted to try to extend their life and I think the heat tamer will help.
I put it on the burner, turn on burner and sometimes I heat that up before I place the pan on the heat and sometimes I may put a skillet on so it heats with it from the beginning. If you put the heat too low you’ll think it’s not cooking because it slows it down.
Great for slow cooking anything but I use it almost every time I cook. Could use a couple more.
These things are amazing! They do exactly what you would think and do it well. From coffee to cast iron seared tenderloin I have had nothing but success. Don’t even consider not buying these. I have 3 for my Explorer 3 burner stove and received nothing but compliments from other stove owners.

My new electric coil stove burners are too hot which makes simmering impossible. The heat diffuser takes care of that problem by diffusing the heat to enable cooking on low temperatures. The painted coated black surface on one side does blister but causes no harm to function of product.

This makes it great for those recipes where you need total control over heat, such as simmering sauces or making custard.
It’s also ideal for protecting delicate ceramic cookware, so you can use your casserole pot or clay tagine on the stovetop!.
I bought this branded one as I thought it would be better. It really is good on my old electric stove top (not ceramic, just radiant rings). I did soak it in soapy hot water before use and rinsed and dried it out in case there was anything in from manufacture.
I can’t fault it really, just what was needed. I had a small thing I have used for years but I think it’s dropped down the back of the unit as I can’t find it. This one will last for years, thank you.
Controlling the heat when making curds is vital. If you overheat the eggs you end up with custard! I used the heat diffuser and I had to turn the gas up a little, as it worked so well. Brilliant bit of kit.
Stops food sticking to the bottom of the pan when simmering, too.

Simmer mats really work as claimed. My wife makes the best tomato sauce. Her only problem is that the brand of tomato sauce that she prefers seems to always scorch in the bottom of her pans. She has commercial pans, All-Clad pans, and even one that has some kind of sealed fluid bottom.
They all get some kind of scorch on the bottom. The simmer mats work perfectly to prevent the scorch problem. She now has six,one for each burner. She just finished making a 48 quart batch of sauce and no scorch.

Let this diffuser act as a buffer between the bottom of your pan and the source of the heat.
The diffuser suits my needs very well. The size was correct, which was important, because I bought it mainly for one large pot. Metal is quite heavy and strong. I use it on an electric coil stove stop with a Dutch oven.
Only used it once, but it worked well. The contents still got very hot but nothing stuck. The wire is a tiny bit less than imperfectly flat, but the weight of the pot makes it fine. I am pleased overall.
I have not used this yet, but I am sure it will work well for the purpose for which I bought it. Will be using it under a pan to keep marshmallow/milk mixture from sticking while melting the marshmallows.
If you’re cooking a delicate sauce, or melting chocolate, it is imperative to use a really low and gentle heat. This diffuser adds a layer of protection between the burner and the bottom of the pan, yet it perforations do allow heat to get through.

It fits multiple burners and is large enough to hold almost any size of sauce pan. Great product that I highly recommend to those who like to keep foods warm without burning or boiling over.

A heat diffuser is a device that helps to distribute heat evenly over a cooking surface. Gas stove tops are often equipped with a heat diffuser plate, which helps to prevent hotspots and ensure even cooking.
When using a heat diffuser, it is important to preheat the plate before cooking, as this will help to evenly distribute the heat. Additionally, it is important to keep the diffuser clean, as built-up grease and food can cause uneven heat distribution.
