Simply the best!
on 24 June 2012
I previously purchased a similar silicone splatter guard which tore after just a couple of months so I was a little apprehensive about buying this one. BUT - I am really pleased I did!
1) as a splatter guard: the material is much thicker than any similar silicone products I've seen. Its really sturdy mainly due to the thick wire frame. Having two handles is useful for safe removal too (tip: make sure you lift the side furthest away from you first as it does trap some steam which is released when you remove it).
2) it is so much more than a splatter guard! I have used it as a pan stand to save my bench and due to the size, it fits all of my pans without hassle!
3) as a baking tray it is great too - I used it to cook a pizza and because of the wire frame it is much more sturdy than other silicone bakeware so I could use it without needing a metal tray underneath.
4) cleaning: as with all silicone cookware, it is extremely easy to clean - no scrubbing needed, just pop it in the bowl after washing up and give it a wipe.
If you've used other silicone splatter guards: please note that the quality of this one is so much superior!
If you've previously used metal splatter guards: yes, it may trap more steam than metal guards but the benefits of how easy to clean and how versitile it is completely out-weigh this in my opinion.
...and lastly, with a 10 year guarentee you know that the manufacture is obviously confident of its quality!
