It wouldn’t be summertime in Canada without a good old-fashioned barbecue night, and while many parts of the country are still covered in snow and ice, grill season is just around the corner.

While delicious grilled meats and vegetables can be a highlight of the warmer months, cleanup is another story. Baked-in grease and charred residue is par for the course, but there are some handy tips and tricks that can keep your grill looking its best while still cooking your favourite foods to perfection.

A grill mat could be the solution to your cleaning woes, and one top-rated pick has impressed Amazon shoppers thanks to its stellar performance.

What is it?

The Renook Heavy Duty Grill Mat has become an essential part of many grilling setups, and it couldn’t be easier to use. This non-stick mat easily fits onto most barbecue grills, and keeps them looking clean all season long.

What people are saying

So far, the Renook Heavy Duty Grill Mat has earned a 4.3-star rating from nearly 1,800 customer reviews. Not only have shoppers been blown away by the mat’s ability to cook juicy and flavourful foods, but also by its quick cleanup.

“I’ve purchased a few grill mats, and they seem to fray over time. This one is still holding strong months after use! Definitely a solid investment, especially considering how easy it is to clean as opposed to scraping the grill,” shared one five-star reviewer.

“Great mats for your grill. Keeps all your sticky, drippy, deliciousness near your food and not on the burners. Easy to cut to size. We even used one on the warmer area so we could put BBQ covered veggies up there to stay warm. Clean up is really easy too,” added another.

Some reviewers have noted that the mat does take some time to heat up, so your best bet for cooking will be to let it preheat before placing any food to cook.

“These are great grill mats. Durable, inexpensive, heats up evenly. I especially like that they are on the thicker side which helps them last longer. You do need to warm them up a bit, but preheating for a few minutes is ideal for grilling anyway,” reads one review.

Verdict

At just $17 (regularly $23), the Renook Heavy Duty Grill Mat is an affordable addition to your summer grilling routine. Not only does it cut down on cleaning time, but it also delivers tasty and perfectly cooked foods for up to 1000 uses.

If you're considering trying it out for yourself, consider picking it up before this sale is over.
