I am using a “glass/ceramic” cook-top stove, and cooking with a diffuser and there is a smoky smell. What to do?


Very rarely, some “glass” stoves when used with the SimmerMat diffuser may emit this smell. Please let the smell from the diffuser “burn-off” by letting it sit on the stove just by itself and heat on medium low, keep windows open and do this for 10 mins.

This should resolve the problem. If not, please change diffuser to Norpro.

There is no way for us to determine if your stove is going to do this, it is very rare and not predictable before-hand.
