It's quite by accident I found this product - on another website to boot. I had been looking for what I called a "burner grid" for about 2 years for our motorhome. The gas burners do not go low enough to simmer. I had checked all kinds of websites and stores over the past couple of years to no avail. Then I came across a mention of a "cooking mat" somewhere & had to check it on Amazon, which, of course, had the best price. I was ecstatic to find it. I really thought I was looking for a product that no one made & I would never find. It works just like it's supposed to: it sets over the burner (in my case, gas) and diffuses the heat enough to enable you to maintain a low simmer. No more burned sauces or soups! Thank you, thank you.

The manufacturer put explicit directions on the cardboard wrapper around the simmer mat. Follow these directions and you will love this mat. I cook with propane. I like cooking with gas rather than electric because the flame is more adjustable. I was hesitant, too, at first after I read that the simmer mat cannot be used on a cold burner. "What????"

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.

I used this (my mom's) product during our annual holiday open house cooking.

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.

This product works BUT it is not stable!!! Because it is both slick and bumpy, I found that the pot wants to slide around when I'm stirring the contents.

The product description is at odds with the product usage instructions. According to the instructions this heat defuser should only be placed on burner when the food is already cooked to keep the food simmering and should never be used on a cold burner or at the start or middle of the cooking process. For example if you intend to make a delicate dessert that requires constant stirring like a pudding, then you may still scorch the pudding because this device isn't supposed to be used at the start or during the cooking process.

I was extremely pleased to find that this product really works. My pots don't boil over any more when I'm simmering rice or soup. It's a very simple principle and a very good design, superior to most of its competition.

I've been a bit frustrated trying to simmer things on my gas stove with my pots and pans. No matter how low I set the flame I could not achieve a simmer. Rice in particular was a real pain - I always wound up with it stuck to the bottom of the pot. Last night, however, was different.

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?

I found the Simmer Mat heat diffuser to be a life saver. We recently moved and I was having a great deal of difficulty adjusting to a new stove as well as climate. I found none of my usual dishes were the same because I could not control the heat from the stove. The SimmerMat made a world of difference in cooking many of my favorite dishes.
