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.

For years I could not simmer anything on my gas stove without overcooking or burning it!! In desperation, I resorted to stacking 2 burner grates, to distance the pot from the burner to prevent scorching. Eventhough I was always very careful when I stacked the burners, I never felt this was a "safe" solution!!

Last week I spotted this Simmer Mat Diffuser in a "Cooking" catalog and knew this was EXACTLY what I needed!!! I really prefer to purchase from Amazon. I have always been satisfied with their fast delivery and return/refund policies. So when I looked for this on Amazon, I was delighted to see the exact same item, listed $6.00 less than the catalog price!!

It arrived in 2 days and I was more than excited to use it!! First,I made rice pilaf. I sauted and cooked all the ingredients as I normally would until I got to the simmering step. The Diffuser instructions' clearly state NOT to use for cooking and only use it for simmering. So, I turned the burner off, removed my pot, positioned the mat diffuser on top of the burner grid and proceeded to simmer for 25 minutes. OMG!!!!! It worked!!! The rice was perfect!!! Best of all, no more scrubbing burnt rice from the bottom of the pot!!! I also made spaghetti sauce and did not have to worry about the sauce continually boiling and having to stir it every few minutes.
It SIMMERED and was delicious!!!!

I highly recommend this to anyone who has a gas stove that does not simmer properly!!!
You will not be disappointed!!!! A real time saver!!!

The only concern I have with this product is that it is too hot to remove from the stove once the simmering is finished. I knew in my household, the mat diffuser could not remain by itself on my stovetop to cool down.

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.
