Considerations when choosing grill mats

Grill mats are available in a range of thicknesses. With a thinner mat, you may get those coveted grill marks on your food. Thicker mats are sturdier but may take slightly longer to heat up. It all depends on whether you'll feel more in control while you cook on a stiffer surface that's more stable or a thinner surface that has a little give to it when you're flipping food.

A quality nonstick coating on a grill mat will be slick and nearly seam-free, and a mat with more layers of nonstick material will tend to be of a higher quality.

If you think you'll be a frequent user of grill mats for outdoor cooking and indoor cooking and baking, consider a multipack of mats.

Grill mats can withstand high temperatures, which makes them ideal for grilling as well as in the oven. Thinner mats can withstand temperatures up to 500° F. Thicker mats can withstand temperatures up to 600°. The melting point of the material the grill mat is made from is about 620°. For maximum safety, keep your mat at about 300° to 400° when grilling. Cooking with your mat at a lower temperature also means it may last longer.


Grill mats range in price between $5 and $20. Less expensive mats under $10 are thinner with low heat tolerances of around 300°, and often found in packs of two to three. Mats between $10 and $15 have a higher heat resistance up to about 500°. You'll begin finding copper mats in this range. For $20, you'll find top-quality grill mats that are thicker, have higher heat tolerances and longer lifespans.
