Customer Reviews

Just Like Mom Used to Have Replaced my old rusty one I got at the variety store. Was happy to find another. It's inexpensive & functional not to mention it's just like the one we used to have at home when I was a kid. Still works well enough & won't break the bank. All the other higher priced models seemed no better than an using iron skillet & reviews had a lot of negative comments about inferior finishes & subpar performance. This one is smallish but I don't have a big problem with the handle attachment getting in the way of larger pots so far. 4Good addition in my kitchen My first time using a diffuser on my gas stove top. I believe that it makes a difference. The heat seems more evenly applied to the pot (of soup I was making). The shining surface was blackened of course but I don't see it as a minus. All cookwares would be marred from using. The battle scar is the sign of glory, of being well used. 4The only flame tamer I would ever purchase. I saw this recommended years ago on one of the genuine cooking shows so I purchased two of them. That was 20+ years ago and they have done very, very well. I purchased four more, two for me and two for my mother-in-law. I tried some of the others, with wooden handles (very bad idea!), other shapes, different handle styles. None of them work adequately or they fall apart, or they don't fold up right. This model works great! and they do what they are supposed to do. Help keep a simmer under a pot, make it easier to control heat under eggs, everything you need. Andy they keep pots of almost any size stable. Work on gas or electric ranges, but not induction ranges and they might scratch ceramic range tops. But nothing in the world can replace the utility of these flame tamers on a gas range! 5Pancakes: An improvement, but I'm using a 14" cast iron skillet and the handle tab on this appears to be tilting it. My 14" Cast Iron Skillet Pancake ChallengeI found this diffuser on Amazon, that was highly rated, so I ordered one. Tried it today. Carefully centered it on the burner. Had to remove the handle, as it would have tilted the pan. It still seems to tilt the pan a little, which is frustrating.I also had to experiment with the flame all over again, as it really seems to distribute it better, but it looks like the pre-heat for 10 minutes advice is still going to apply. This is a learning curve.The last time I made pancakes without this diffuser, we had switched mixes and I hadn't homed in on the heat settings yet, so I wound up with pancakes that were half burnt ( towards the inside of the pan ) and half raw ( towards the outside of the pan ).As you can see from this new photo today, BIG IMPROVEMENT!BUT NOW it's looking like they're getting less heat on one SIDE of the pan - I'm thinking because of the tilt introduced by the stupid handle tab on this diffuser, Argh!Not sure what to do now. The diffuser makes a BIG difference, BUT I don't like the tab tilting my 14" skillet and making less heat on one side, because of that. I may actually grind and drill out that handle tab, then this may work perfectly for me. 3Great invention! Bought this as a gift for a friend who's a Peace Corp Volunteer in Madagascar. She has a two-burner propane stove that only has two settings, which are both pretty much boiling so she either burns food or it's otherwise cooked unevenly. I sent her this and she said it changed her life! So, she loves it. Very pleased to be able to give someone something so simple that means a lot. 5No More Burned Food I bought this because none of the burners on the very basic range in our rental unit gets heat down to a simmer. I either had to constantly stir what I was cooking or remove it from the heat periodically or risk getting a burn spot in the center. Saut ing garlic was always a problem. It burned easily. I used the diffuser while making marinara sauce. No hot spot in the center. Hurray! It made prepping the rest of my dinner so much easier since I only had to stir the sauce every 10 minutes or so. My next try will be oatmeal. I ll report back. 5Basic, durable, and a relatively well priced Have been using this "HIC...heat diffuser reducer flame guard simmer plate" since Feb (2019). Have used it on a gas flame stove top for stews, soups, pasta and pizzas sauces, and clarifying butter (ghee) to good effect. The fact that it's stainless steel is a plus. some discoloration is noticeable, but that's not a personal concern. There has not been any noticeable warping, and the diffuser has been used almost daily. There is a learning curve involved when using a diffuser on a gas flame stove (e.g., the size of the flame, the makeup--stainless steel, aluminium, copper, alloy--of utensil).The reason for the four stars is the rather long metal and plastic handle. It gets in the way even hinged upward when the stove top has other pots/pans/skillets in use. One reviewer suggests taking off the handle and then when cool removing the diffuser. If the manufacturer redesigned the handle so it doesn't get in the way, it would merit a five star rating.The product is made in China. Quality control is among the main issues of products made there, so with that caveat, quality, as well as mileage, may vary. "Giftable" ? by itself, I think not, unless part of a parcel of kitchen appliances or utensils. 4Not good for stovetop coffee pots! I am rating this 5 stars because it is very well made. For such an inexpensive diffuser, it holds up. I've been using it every day for two weeks over a powerful gas stove. The two-layer construction means that the top helps diffuse heat for the flaming-hot bottom. It will discolor with every use. That's heat patination for you.It is not the right item if you have a large burner grille and a tiny moka pot and you wish to balance your tiny pot over the flame. This would work well for diffusing heat over a large area for a long time, as for a tagine. The same two-layer design that keeps it functional for clay pots causes water to boil too slowly to maintain the pressure at which the moka pot percolates. I eventually purchased a diffuser ring ("Ilsa diffuser ring" on Amazon for US folks) and I guess I'm recycling or donating this product. Or perhaps taking up clay pot cooking. 5Inferior Product EXTREMELY poor quality. This diffuser started chipping and flaking after only one use on an electric stove top. It also rusted after one wash, where it was hand washed and immediately toweled dry. (It states it's aluminum, but aluminum doesn't rust). Burned flakes of metal also were caught inside it. This was a complete waste of money.In the picture on the left, if you look just right of center, flakes of metal and rust can be seen. The picture on the right shows the actual metal flakes after removing the diffuser from a storage bag. Both pics were taken after it's first and only use. I do not recommend purchasing. 1Seems to work pretty well I was actually looking for something more like what my mother had--an asbestos pad which was placed between the flame and the pot. You could even gently heat a regular glass bowl on a gas stove using it. But I'm sure no one wants to make anything out of asbestos anymore. I'm downgrading by one star because this device--unlike an asbestos pad--gets very hot. You have to remember to not leave the handle attached while on the flame, and then put the handle back on to move it. Not terrible, but a little more trouble. 4
