Heat Diffuser for Electric Range - Kitchen Consumer - eGullet Forums

The electric range in my new apartment seems to put out quite a bit of heat, and I was wondering if there's a way to even out the heat that gets transferred to the cookware. I've seen diffusers for gas ranges, and on a few sites there seem to be some that are described as working for electric ranges as well.
