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.
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.Read more ›
