The product is solid and seems to have an enamel coating on the top. Underneath you can see the cast iron and it does not have the same coating. It is made in Italy and mine came with a metal hook that I assume is used to lift the item off the stove. The first time I used it, I noticed some kind of smell after heating which kicked my air purifier on.
Be careful when using pots that are not dry. I had just washed my pot and set it on the diffuser without drying. After coming up to temperature, the water between the pot and diffuser started to boil. There is very little space between the two items and the water started to sputter and spit, getting on my skin and slightly burning me like hot splattering oil would.
Of course this can be avoided by drying your pot beforehand. But this could also occur if you what I do sometimes and pour something out of the pot and re-place it on the stove leaving liquid dripping down the side and in between the diffuser and pot.
I also have gas burner grates that don't seem to be completely flat and this causes my 1920s cast iron skillet with heat ring to be a bit tippy. The diffuser solves this problem!
EDITED to add text from product box:

The Heat Diffuser placed between the heat source and saucepan, eliminates the need to mix foods while cooking because it distributes the heat in a uniform and constant manner. When in use, foods neither burn nor stick, retaining intact all their vitamin, mineral, and protein properties.Read more ›

I purchased this for one purpose, to act as a heat shield for my "simmer" burner, which I could never get low enough to actually achieve a simmer on any pot I used. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Amazon Customer

We have a gas stove, from propane tank, which heats the burners very hot. Even on low trying to simmer a spaghetti sauce on low for hours it will stick to the bottom. Read morePublished 24 days ago by francisca
works well if you have thin cooking pans. Finish bubbles and ruins the look BUT not the process.Published 1 month ago by Milo N. Illich
