Greetings Woven Hand fans. Our first official product review is ready for your inspection. As I’m sure you can guess from the title of this post, we will be looking at one particular product – the grill mat. In case you didn’t already know, this is a mat or thin slab you place across a bbq grill. This is great for sunny days in the garden when you don’t necessarily want a grilled steak but you still want to cook outside.
It’s a pretty genius idea and I’m surprised it’s taken the human race so long to figure it out. You don’t just have to use it with meet, you can practically cook anything on them. Another bonus is that they are incredibly easy to clean, in fact for some of them you can just stick them in the dish washer like a normal plate.
Another great bonus of using these rather than placing your barbecued meat or vegetables straight onto the grill is the amount of time and effort it saves you. The fact that the mats are so easy to use and clean means you essentially won’t ever have to clean the grill itself. Those of you that have barbecues will know how long, tedious and boring this job can be, especially on a Sunday when you all want to do is kick back, have a beer and watch the game. These handy mats make all of that possible. Alternatively, if the dishwasher is empty you can just hand wash the mats in the sink.
Another thing I like about these is they’re pretty good for storing too. Some grill mats are rather like slabs in that you can’t fold them away and they take up quite a bit of room in the cupboard. These ones are different however. You can fold them up to your heart’s content!
Contrary to what a lot of people think, you can actually get a great deal of use from these mats, and cook on them hundreds and hundreds of times before they stop working as well as they did previously. For the price, you can see why I think these are pretty damn good value!
