Placed directly onto your stovetop, the SimmerMat™, Original prevents hot spots because heat is spread evenly under the base of the pot - so there's no catching, burning or spoiling.

Dual surfaced to suit all hobs (except induction and ceramic).

Does what it should. I have some pans you could burn water in,a bit expensive for what it is but would recommend and buy another when I need it. 4 stars because of the cost.

"Chris Perkins/ Simmer mat"

star star star star star

After buying a new cooker I had to be vigilent in watching anything I left to simmer on the stove, soups sauces etc because they would always 'catch' the bottom of the pan. I saw this in the catalogue and it was recommended by a store assistant, it is fantastic, once the soup has boiled, and the mat is hot, put the pan on the mat, turn the heat low and it will cook for as long as needed without catching, at last I can relax and not have to watch the pot.

"Brilliant but warped"

star star star star star_border

Like a few other people, I have found that this is a brilliant item, but it has warped on my gas hob. I had the heat diffuser before and it did rust so I am in a quandary what to do now, as I need this for my ceramic casserole. It would get 5 stars if it hadn't warped. Wow! What customer service! Within hours of writing my review I had someone on the phone offering me a replacement, which I have now received and it is working beautifully. Thank You lakeland...you should do courses in customer service for other retailers.

Thanks for writing your review and taking the time to speak to me on the phone. I hope the replacement works well.

I swithered about buying one of these for a long time, but I'm so glad I did. What decided me was when my husband nearly burned my expensive Le Creuset pan when he was trying to reheat a casserole, and I thought better to spend £13 to save £100. Yesterday I left a casserole on in the same pan with the SimmerMat beneath and forgot about it. When I came back it was still simmering away and hadn't even stuck. What a joy! I am now ordering a second one so I can cook rice at the same time, and one for my sister who has just had to throw away a Le Creuset pan through having burned it beyond repair.

"A bit disappointed"

I recently bought this simmer mat and thought it was a great but unfortunately after a few uses it has warped. Was going to buy a second one but not sure now.
