Grill mats can differ in surface smoothness. Some are slicker when others have coarser surfaces. Mats with a slicker surface generally use more PTFE for coating.

Choosing the Grill Mat You Need to Consider Several Factors

Using a grill mat is perfect for beginners to grilling or anyone who just doesn’t want to deal with a lot of the problems that come with grilling. When choosing the China BBQ Grill Mat you need to consider several factors.

Size

You should measure your grill or any other surface you plan to use before buying. This way, you can already know the dimensions you’re aiming for.

Keep in mind that you can and probably will cut your grill mat to size it perfectly for your cooking surface. You’ll save money if you get a grill mat that’s around the perfect size instead of paying for one that’s huge. Otherwise, you’ll end up wasting a big chunk of it during resizing.

If you have a circular grill, buy a circular mat. No need to test your scissoring skills while you try to cut a circle out of a rectangle or square.

GRILL SHAPE

If you have a circular grill, it is best to buy a circular Txyicheng grill mat because, unless you’re skilled at it, cutting a perfect circle isn’t as easy as it looks.

MAT SURFACE TYPE

Grill mats can differ in surface smoothness. Some are slicker when others have coarser surfaces. Mats with a slicker surface generally use more PTFE for coating.

MAT COLOR

Mat colors depend on the materials used. You may choose black for optimal heat conduction, or choose a silicone mat that matches the color of your grill.

TEMPERATURE LIMIT

The temperature limit of your mat should be around 500°F (260°C). The higher the temperature limit, the better. This will prevent the PTFE on your mat from breaking down in case your BBQ becomes a little too hot.

Thickness

The thicker a grill mat is, the more heat it can handle during your cooking. That said, you don’t want a grill mat that’s too thick or thin.

If it’s too thick, the mat might be more durable, but it will also take longer to cook foods due to the slower heat transference through the material. If it’s too thin, the mat might lead to burned or improperly cooked meals.

The perfect thickness for a grill mat is 0.25mm. At this thickness, the mat is ideal for cooking food evenly and releasing the most flavor during grilling.
