Protect your cookware from excessive heat that can scorch your cookware and your food. This cast-iron diffuser absorbs the heat and distributes it evenly, so you can safely cook in a tagine, simmer stews or melt chocolate. 8¼".
I have had diffusers in the past and what makes this one special is that it is Enamel Coated over Cast Iron. My past diffusers have all been Steel and when food and oil spill on to it, the Steel diffuser becomes stained and if you would scrub too hard to clean it, the protective coating would come off. Not on this one. I have other enamel coated pots and pans and if this diffuser holds up like my pans, then you will never need to purchase another diffuser again. Not only does this diffuser protect your pots and pans from scorching and burns it can even heat your most delicate Tea Pots (non porcelain) One last thing, It looks beautiful on the stove
Best Answer:We use the diffuser on a gas stove but we have used it also on electric ranges with regular elements (not glass top) because it helps protect our glass coffee pot. It's a solid diffuser and it works great.
