When it comes to the decision to buy a Thick PTFE Barbecue Grill Mat or a Non-Stick Teflon Mat, your preference has more than likely already been made for you. The thickness of the thick PTFE mat is very much better when it comes to controlling the temperature of the food that you cook. It is easy to remove the spindle from the grill and the heat source is no longer in your way. Since the Thick Mat is solid, there are no moving parts and you will be able to control the temperature exactly where it should be. You will find that you can cook steaks, chops, chicken and many other types of meat without fear of burning it.
In addition to the ease of using the Thick Mat and cooking food with this type of grill cover, you will also find that the mats have a good life span. They have a thick surface and the grease and residue left over from food cooking will not build up on the grill. They will not warp or be stripped off the grill by heavy wind. You do not have to replace them as often as you might with a non-stick cover on the grill. They are made from the best teflon-coated plastic and the non-stick coating provides you with the satisfaction of a cooked product on your family’s tables. Since they are not usually made of the same material as the non-stick coated ones, they are thinner and more flexible. You can get away with one if you need to use it for a long time and you should never have to replace it because it does not show signs of wear.
If you decide to buy a Thick PTFE Barbecue Mat, the cheapest cover for the grill would probably be the Non-Stick Teflon Cover, but you should remember that not all manufacturers make them for this kind of grill. You can find them in most any sporting goods store and at any discount chain or major department store. If you have any more questions about the Mat, you can ask an employee or ask the person at the store. They should be able to give you help if you get stuck at any point. You may also want to check out the cost of the Thick PTFE Barbecue Mat as compared to the Non-Stick Teflon Cover, but remember that the Non-Stick Cover is not really a Mat cover at all, it is a cover for your grill which will ensure that you cook correctly and avoid you having to buy a new cover.
