Hopefully these plates will help.
John Bean
They evenly distribute heat, so if you have a pot or pan that's in between the small and large size on your range, you can still cook food perfectly.

I set it on my stove and it slid around on the grates.

These burner plates work very well. I was tired of getting ugly ring marks on my pots and tea kettle, so I ordered these plates. They evenly distribute heat, so if you have a pot or pan that's in between the small and large size on your range, you can still cook food perfectly. It helps eliminate hot spots on my warped aluminum griddle and it works like a dream when used with cast iron cookware! Plus, they keep the range top much cleaner. Once you reach your desired heat, you can reduce the heat by a third and continue cooking/boiling your food; this conserves energy. All in all, a great product. I would highly recommend these plates. The cost of shipping is equal to the cost of the burners themselves - which seems ridiculous - but they are cast-iron and heavy; I used a gift certificate so it didn't seem too bad. I haven't been able to find these in stores (the aluminum ones are decorative only), but knowing what I know now, I would gladly purchase these again and pay the crazy shipping rate. [...]

I am using this on an electric stove burner under a terracotta tagine. It successfully softens and spreads the heat. It fits the burner correctly.

I can't believe it took me so long to discover and purchase these! I started out with two 8" plates, but I will now buy a 6" and a 10" or 12". I cook on a rather crappy 24" gas stove, with a flame that is hard to control finely, and with an odd assortment of cheap stainless steel and glass cookware, plus my cast iron skillet. This means that I'm often burning things, despite my caution.

No more with these plates. It's actually DIFFICULT to burn things now, and things cook more evenly throughout the pot/pan because the solid cast iron metal of the plates conducts and disperses heat wonderfully. They aren't as heavy as I expected - though they are definitely sturdy - and are also very easy to clean - I wipe them down with a sponge. They have the added benefit of cutting down on the cleaning of the stove, as they cover much of it. This is great because the plates are much easier to clean than the grooves surrounded a gas burner. If that isn't enough, they even improve the appearance of my stove!

I find these especially good for egg dishes, sauteeing, rice/pilaf grains, and slow cooking stews and soups, though I personally leave them on my stove and use them for types of cooking. I imagine they would improve anyone's cooking and I think every cook should own these. Considering the dramatic difference they make and how little they cost, they are an amazing value.

A few months ago, I bought two 8" plates to use with my Piral terra cotta cookware. At first, they were beautiful and functional. They are now discolored and warped. I do not mind the discoloration since it doesn't affect function, though it is sort of an eyesore on the stovetop. Much worse than that, they have developed a slight bulge in the middle such that none of my cookware sits flat on them--I tried both covers on both 8" burners. For what it's worth, I used them on an inexpensive electric coil stove. Perhaps I used too high a heat? I don't remember reading in the directions that you can't use a medium-high heat.

While they worked, they were great. Took a long time to heat up, but I felt much better about using my terra cotta on the stove. They look very impressive fresh out of the packaging. That doesn't last long...the black finish starts cracking and fading. The orange bottom of my cookware stained them also.

Considering that this is one of few (or only) negative reviews of this item, I accept that my experience may be unique and these may work just fine for you! They didn't for me, though. I can't use them at all since the cookware rocks back and forth on them now.

The "space age coating" smelled very bad, then began flaking off all over everything and everyone it touched. We used a wire brush to remove the remaining coating.

The diffuser warped badly after a few uses, developing a high spot in the center. We reshaped it with a heavy hammer.

Got both the 6 and 8 inch ones. I should have tried one out before buying both. First, they have a smelly industrialized coating on them which stinks really badly when first using. I'm sure it's not good to inhale that stuff either.

We bought these to use with our glass sauce pans so they don't heat up too fast. They work for that purpose, after you get over the initial smell. However soon the plate starts chipping and getting discolored.

We really wanted something less "space age" (this is actually from the product insert) and more utilitarian. Just plain cast iron would be good, without the industrial coating and paint that chips off and gets discolored.

Do not purchase if you have a glass cooktop. These are raised for coil burners. Not a bad product, but for coil only.

I bought this to create a flat cooking surface on my electric stove. It worked really well initially, but after 1 month of careful & normal use it started to warp. Now it is completely warped and has a visible "hump" in the middle - no flat cooking surface anymore! Also, the black color comes off easily with a Scotchbrite kitchen sponge (or even a damp cloth) and also scratches when you move pots on it.
I've returned it to amazon and will get a replacement to see if there was something wrong with this batch of burner plates; another review here states the same problem, though, so I assume they'll warp again.
