Yoshi Copper Grill Mat Review
Copper has been the buzzword in As Seen on TV products for the past few years, and we’re seeing new “copper” versions of many popular past items hitting the airwaves in recent months. The Yoshi Copper Grill Mat is no exception, as it is the copper version of the popular Yoshi Grill and Bake Mat which heavily advertised in mid-2014.
One notable “pro” with this products is that it works well with some types of food. Vegetables, fish, and pizza are examples of food where Yoshi Copper Grill Mat shines. The nonstick surface works as expected, and it does reduce the amount of cleanup on your grill surface. It seems to be durable enough for re-use and easy clean up.
There are also a few cons worth weighing into your purchasing decision. Using this mat will results in a lack of grill marks, which is an aesthetic some chefs cannot sacrifice. The fact that juices pool on the mat, rather than drip into the flame, could result in less flavor and increased cooking time. These juices can create more of a steaming or frying experience than that of grilling. At a size of about 16″ x 13″ it could feel too small for some users, although you do receive two mats with your order.
In my tests, I found that burgers and chicken cooked properly, but were rather hard on the mat itself, requiring extensive cleaning. That somewhat negates the benefit of keeping your grill clean, if you have to spend just as much time cleaning the mat. In fact, I don’t know that this is an improvement over the older model, which I found to last longer with regular use.
Overall, I think this is a fine product if you are grilling veggies or items requiring lower heat. High heat and greasy meat seem to overwhelm Yoshi Copper Grill Mat. It would appear that the addition of copper is only of minimal benefit, if any. Now that this product is available in stores, it’s not a bad price at $10 if you want to try it out.
If you’re interested in alternatives, the Grillaholics Grill Mat is an Amazon best seller – ranking #1 in this category – and costs about $20 for two mats.
