      Comments about Stovetop Simmer Ring:

      I picked up one of these at the Vermont Country Store and the very first time I used it the plastic where the handle attaches melted. I used it on my gas stove on a small burner set on the lowest possible flame. I am very disappointed in this item and would definitely not recommend this to anyone. If I could give it less than one star, I would.

        Bought this as a gift for someone that had used mine. Great for simmering on propane stoves that tend to burn hotter than natural gas

        Comments about Stovetop Simmer Ring:

        This is a stovetop simmer ring, however when we placed it on our stovetop, it began to burn. When we took it off you could clearly see the burn marks from having been on the stove for only a minute... Not good quality, you could find a better one somewhere else.

              Sorry. I looked high and low for one of these in cast iron and couldn't. Came across this one and ordered it. Used it twice. The piece within the white handle melted and now has rendered the piece useless. The heat was NOT hitting the handle and there were no scorch marks. Just the heat from under the pot melted it. I am definitely sending this back for my money back and the search goes on again!

              Comments about Stovetop Simmer Ring:

              I really liked the simmer ring when I first got it
              but after some time & use the handle fell off! I
              was careful that the handle did not get over the flame but it looks like the connection between the
              handle & the ring burnt. I never cared for the design of the handle, as it made it difficult to store & wash.

                Cons

                • Allow for large stock pot
                • Handle design doesn't all

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Stovetop Simmer Ring:

                  The design of the handlr does't allow for using larger pots. If the handle was flat it would be really useful.
