Default Anyone tried the Miracle Grill Mat?

I saw an infomercial for the product and it seems to get good reviews online. I have a small fry pan I use when I grill, but this looks interesting. anyone ever used one?

I would be interested in a similar product if anyone has experience with them.

No way you are going to get the grill marks( that stuff they showing is precooked on a grill grate).

Plus not a big deal to clean a grill grate anyway

Couple swipes when it is hot and I oil the grate with olive oil and throw the meat/fish/chicken/veggies on and cook

The Amazon reviews confirm the grill marks and why not, the hot spots are from the grates anyway.

Not my kind of thing either way, but I could see using it for the breakfast ideas on the infomercial.

I am interested in using it for breakfast and my g/f has food allergies so I could cook her food separate and eliminate the risk of her dying. .

I couldn't agree more. Isn't the point of a grill to grill your food? Otherwise, why not just use a frying pan over a gas stove?

No effing clue. Half the fun of grilling small items is seeing how many you can keep above the grates!

And with meat, I like my grill marks. With burgers or steak, I don't want them sitting in grease either. I tell myself the t Bone is healthy because the grease drips through the grates.

I think the image of breakfast on the grill pool side sucked me in.

I can see some specific uses for it. Certainly wouldn't use it for steaks or anything like that but maybe for eggs/bacon/scrapple on the egg.

Get a grill with a burner on the side and use a griddle? That's what I've done.

Be careful with bacon on the grill, especially a lot of it. If that grease gets into the burners, it aint no fun.

Where do the gasses go - if they go around the mat you will have hot edges and a crappy flame. Micro pores that let gas thru and not liquids?

Remember the infrared grills? Turned your grill into an oven - great for pizza but not much else

Would like to see what it is made of

Just read reviews - seems aluminum foil is the preferred alternative when necessary - doesn't melt and don't have to be cleaned

Your second reason is good enough for me. I'd like to try it for fish.

when i do fajitas on the grill ill use a big lodge cast iron skillet for the veggies. I have in fact a big griddle thats grated one one side and flat on the other, plus I have a huge 16" skillet. I'll usually just toss the chicken or steak in to the skillet just so the veggies meld with the meat

I'm weary of anything that is "as seen on tv for 19.95". I have a Big Green Egg and use grill grates on it and my girlfriends gas grill. The grill grates are awesome and do wonders for cooking burgers and steaks. If I want to cook something with a flat surface like eggs, veggies, or cubed potatoes then I use a ceramic coated cast iron flat pan type thing I got for a gift years ago.

My rule is to never purchase anything with the name "Miracle" in it.
