First, bring the contents of your pan to a boil, then carefully remove the hot pot of food, carefully place the simmer mat (unheated) on top of the burner you are using and put the pot of food back on top of the mat which is now on top of your warm burner. Turn down your flame (or electric burner) to low and your food should simmer along without scorching. Again, just follow the directions.
The manufacturer was careful to label the side of the mat that should be used for stove-tops with glass, ceramic or induction surfaces and the side of the mat that should be used for gas, electric or solid fuel cookers.
I've used this mat five times now and am happy with this purchase. Just follow the directions.
After melting chocolate without a double boiler and later simmering a chili for three hours and discovering not a bit of burn or scalding on either I found myself leaving a full pot of rice on the stove and searching Amazon for the Simmer Mat.
The stove in my (rental) apartment is not nearly as controllable as I would like and I have spent all too many evening's constantly stirring sauces and cleaning burnt food from pots. This is, without a doubt, the best kitchen "gadget" I have purchased in ages.
Highly, highly, recommended.
I finally got to try out the Simmer Mat, and it worked perfectly. I wasn't sure how high to turn the flame up under the mat, so I just turned it down low, but nowhere near as low as I would have before when I was trying to simmer something. I think that using the Simmer Mat makes the flame adjustment not quite so critical. In any event, the brown rice I was cooking came out light and fluffy with no sticking in the pot at all.
I seem to have found the answer to my simmering problems. While I'm sure that there are probably other products out there that will do the same, this works just fine. I'll have to admit that the price seems a bit high for a dimpled piece of steel (it is not cast iron, though it may look like it in the picture) that probably cost no more than a dollar to produce, but I can't see ever needing to replace it, so what's a lifetime of use worth?
