Having tested different diffusers, this is one of the best heat diffuser for clay cookware for use on both electric and gas cooktops. It heats up quickly and spreads the heat evenly onto the bottom of the pot. Its unique design with raised points allows the pot to stand elevated over the heat source. Don’t pre-heat the SimmerMat, always use it with your clay pot on top.
