Grill still needs to be cleaned, mats difficult to clean.
on March 26, 2017
Pros: very heavy duty, keeps food from sticking to the grates
Cons: difficult to clean, still dirties the grates and thus you need to clean those anyway.
I was using the solid mats for years and really like them (usually replace a set once or twice a year (I grill at least once a week). this last time, I noticed these and thought I would try them - seemed to make sense. However I am disappointed in them. The food grills nicely and doesn't stick too much to the mats, but because they have holes, they are much harder to clean than the solid mats, but more importantly, the grill grates get nearly as dirty and gummed up as if I was grilling directly on them - so these defeat the purpose - actually makes clean up twice as time consuming because I have to clean the grates AND the mats.
I am going back to using solid mats.
I am rating 3 stars instead of lower because they are very heavy duty (much thicker than my solid mats) and seem well made
