5 Best Grill Mats of 2020 [Reviewed & Rated]

best grill mats

If you’re tired of getting meat stuck between your grill grates, investing in a good grill mat is a great way to ensure that you don’t lose any food along the way.

Not only that, but their large surface area opens up a world of cooking opportunity for you. Eggs, vegetables, and fish can all be grilled perfectly.

Here are 5 of the very best grill mats so you can cook cleanly and efficiently from now on.

Kona BBQ Grill Mat

Check it out here

The Kona grill mat 2-pack is a great choice if you are going to cook at high temperatures. A whopping 0.39 mm thick, these grill mats are some of the girthiest out there. Thanks to their added thickness, the Kona grill mats are advertised to withstand up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit.

Kona is also proud of this grill mat’s durability, promising 1,000 and even more uses per side. The mats are covered by a 7-year warranty as well, which, among other things, covers accidental overheating.

The Kona grill mat 2-pack is on the pricier side, but considering its longevity, it’s probably going to cost you less in the long run than a cheap kit of grill mats.

These mats are dishwasher-safe as well, so cleaning them should be a breeze.

Such thick grill mats have one downside – they take forever to heat up. So they aren’t the best if you want to get started with grilling quickly. But if you are patient, then you’ll be getting the chance to enjoy the results of high-temperature cooking.

Pros:

  • Nice and thick – will withstand high temperatures.
  • 7-year warranty.
  • Includes a pair of grill mats.

Cons:

  • A bit pricey.
  • Will heat up relatively slowly due to its thickness.

Grillaholics Grill Mat

Check it out here

If you won’t be high-temperature grilling, then the Grillaholics grill mat is perhaps a better choice for you. Grillaholics doesn’t provide thickness measurements, but this grill mat appears to be about 0.25 mm, which is a standard thickness for grill mats.

Thanks to its thinner profile, the Grillaholics mat will heat up way faster than the Kona grill mat. On the other hand, it won’t withstand as high temperatures – Grillaholics recommends cooking at no more than 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remarkably, Grillaholics covers this grill mat with a lifetime replacement guarantee, so you could expect years of service from this pack. Aside from durability, this grill mat pack contains no silicone, PFOA, or other harmful chemicals that could soak into your food.

The Grillaholics grill mat pack comes with two grill mats as well. The grill mats are dishwasher-safe, so getting them ready for the next grilling party after each use is going to be very easy.

Pros:

  • Covered by a lifetime replacement guarantee.
  • Thin and heats up pretty quickly.
  • Comes with two grill mats.

Cons:

  • Pricey

Aoocan Grill Mat

Check it out here

The Aoocan grill mat pack is a solid choice if you are on a budget or aren’t going to need grill mats that often. This pack is inexpensive AND includes five grill mats, therefore offering pretty nice value for the money.

In terms of specs & numbers, Aoocan grill mats are similar to Grillaholics mats. They are 0.25 mm thick and are advertised to withstand up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. The Aoocan grill mats are sized the same as Grillaholics mats too, as well as are food-safe and washable.

Needless to say, you shouldn’t expect the same durability and performance from these mats as from Grillaholics grill mats. Less than half the price of the Grillaholics grill mats, Aoocan grill mats are going to produce flare-ups more often, and you won’t be getting hundreds of uses either.

Cleaning these mats is going to be a little more difficult as well since they like to stick to food.

Aoocan advertises that the grill mats can be reused 100 times, which is fairly nice but not that much if you will be grilling very often. Otherwise, the five grill mats will serve you for a good amount of time.

Pros:

  • Good value for the money.
  • Includes five grill mats.
  • 0.25mm thick – will heat up fast while offering decent temp resistance.

Cons:

  • Though similar to Grillaholics grill mats, won’t serve you as long.

Kitchen + Home Grill Mat

Check it out here

This 2-pack from Kitchen + Home appears to be somewhere between Aoocan and Grillaholics grill mats in terms of quality and durability (though it is closer to the former).

Kitchen + Home offers these grill mats for about half the price of Grillaholics mats. Exact thickness figures are nowhere to be found in the product description, but these mats again appear to be 0.2-0.25 mm thick. They are advertised to be suitable for up to 500 degrees too – just like Aoocan and Grillaholics grill mats.

When it comes to performance and durability, this 2-pack seems a little better than the Aoocan set, but it’s far from the Grillaholics mats. Cleaning the grill mats after use can sometimes be challenging, and you should be really careful with temperatures to keep the mats up and running for a long time.

With that in mind, we’d again recommend Kitchen + Home grill mats to those buyers who won’t be grilling too often.

Pros:

  • Inexpensive.
  • Heats up fast.
  • Comes with two grill mats.

Cons:

  • Not too durable and difficult to clean.

Chef Caron Grill Mat

Check it out here

The Chef Caron grill mats are in third place in terms of quality and durability on our list – after Kona and Grillaholic mats. They don’t cost a lot either, so you could go for them if you want a middle-ground solution in terms of price and quality.

Notably, these grill mats are sized at 17 x 13 inches, while other mats on this list were sized at about 16 x 13 inches. Given that a single pack includes two grill mats, you are getting 2 inches of extra length (if using both grill mats at a time), which is quite a lot.

The thickness of the Chef Caron grill mats is 0.25 mm. It used to be 0.20 mm and has recently been upgraded to 0.25 mm, though Chef Caron didn’t update the product description to match the added thickness.

Performance-wise, expect these grill mats to be fairly easy to clean, heat up quickly, and withstand moderately high temperatures. Chef Caron mats are probably going to serve you longer than Aoocan and Kitchen + Home mats too.

Pros:

  • Decent quality.
  • Large.
  • Good price for what you are getting.
  • 0.25 mm thick – heats up fast.

Cons:

  • Nothing to complain about.
