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.

Are there any that are designed specifically for an electric range? What brands or features should I look for? I'd really like to get my good cookware away from direct contact with the heating elements.


I don't understand why you'd want one designed specifically for an electric range. Uneven heat is uneven heat. Be it an electric stove, a gas range (yes gas is uneven too), a charcoal grill, or a campfire.
