Until I purchased these Heat Diffuser Rings every thing I cooked on my stove, at the lowest setting boiled! I had to take my pot of rice to a neighbor's home to cook it properly. My rings have to be doubled on top of each other -it's a relieve to be able to cook on my stove at home, considering I had to dress for the bitter cold and forge through the snow, to take my pan to cook somewhere else!! I had purchased to kinds of heat diffusers-I prefer this item- as the holes are smaller and the flames are more evenly distributed-making less intense hot spots underneath the pan!

Maybe my subconscious connected to grandma, I don't know. But, I took hers off the wall and used it when I made spaghetti sauce from scratch a couple of days after the chili, using fresh tomatoes, etc. which simmers for over 5 hours. No scorching. Then a week later I used it under the pot in which I was cooking some more chili, which I simmer for 2 hours - AGAIN no scorching! So, I decided to see if they were still making these diffusers. I checked and found them. So, as I'm a sentimental old lady, I decided that if they worked I would just keep my grandma's up on the wall as a...
I finally ordered something else b/c this flame-tamer does not sit flat on either of my stove tops (one gas in our apartment and one electric at our vacation house). The wooden handle looked like a good idea, but in fact, it just gets in the way. Not a good design. I finally ordered the ChefLand Heat Master Flame Tamer, which is like one I had years ago and it works great!
