The Aris Simmermat is the crucial tool for simmering and slow cooking. We believe the Aris is the best simmer mat in the world. And Jamie Oliver and Stephanie Alexander agree (or at least use one). It gives wonderful low heat control of soups, curries, stews, rice, milk and things needing a double boiler.
Importantly, it allows the LOW HEAT use of regular cookware (aluminium, glassware, ceramic, and copper utensils) on induction stoves – whilst still being wonderful on electric and gas tops.
Our Simmermat was created by New Zealand inventor Tom Tothill in 1997. Its secret is eight small hollow cones pressed into an enamel steel surface. This allows small contact points, avoids overheating, and lets things cook evenly. And prevents scorching and burning of cookware.
This is a new updated 2010 version of the Simmermat. We didn’t even mention that it protects your stove to table cookware. It keeps it looking swish because it stops flames from gas tops discolouring the bottom and sides.
