Griddle Buddy is our top choice for safeguarding your griddle with superior protection from pests, insects, dust, dirt and rust. Our team appreciated how the mat is trimmable to ensure a perfect fit for your size griddle. We enjoyed the raised edges featured along the border, as well as the trim-lines to capture any liquids and debris. Griddle Buddy also won our team over for the fact that it not only serves as a powerful protective barrier, but that it’s also scientifically proven to reduce bacteria on your griddle to further maintain a hygienic cooking surface.
Grydlmat is a premium quality silicone mat for your griddle. It is composed of a heavy duty, food-grade silicone material with a polished layer on the underside. When placed on a clean, cool and lightly oiled surface, Grydlmat is designed to shield your griddle from bugs, dirt, rust and any other unwanted surprises from invading your griddle’s surface and ruining your cooking experience. Its raised edges feature end-to-end protection for your griddle for peace of mind in between cooking sections.
Our team felt that while Grydlmat provides proficient protection for your griddle’s surface, a drawback we discovered was that it is not intended to be used on its own and does not have antimicrobial materials. The brand recommends using it with another lid either a hard or soft cover for multilayer protection. Plus, it is not trimmable so you would need to select the right size to fit your Blackstone. It does not support other brands of griddles. We also found Grydlmat to be a higher price point with no added incremental value.
EDIBIN’s 17” griddle mat features a non-stick surface composed of 100% durable and hard-wearing, food-grade silicone design to safeguard your griddle from dust, dirt, debris, bugs and rust when used on a clean, lightly oiled surface.
Our team appreciated how EDIBIN’s griddle mat offers protection for your griddle from dust, dirt, debris, pests and insects. But like Grydlmat, it lacks superior protection against bacteria and is not trimmable so it will only fit the grill size it is made for. In this case, it is designed to only fit a 17” Blackstone griddle and does not support other brands.
Specifically made to fit a 36” griddle, the MOFEEZ silicone griddle mat is a versatile and practical accessory designed for use with a blackstone griddle. This griddle mat is constructed from high quality silicone with a non-slip surface serving as a reliable barrier against spills, stains and scratches as well as safeguarding the griddle from moisture penetration, oxidations and rust. The silicone is also heat-resistant and easy to clean.
While the MOFEEZ griddle mat shields your griddle‘s surface from annoying pests, dust, dirt and debris to maintain a more hygienic surface, it must perfectly fit your griddle to be able to provide ample protection. Our team noticed that a common complaint was that customers found that the mat didn’t perfectly fit their griddle, so it lacks end-to-end coverage for ultimate protection.
Wohbay’s Griddle Mat for Blackstone is a premium silicone mat crafted to protect your griddle surface from dust and debris damage, ensuring you a clean and hygienic cooking surface. Made to fit a 36” griddle, this griddle is designed with a 100% food-grade silicone with raised edges for all-around protection and a durable construction that makes for easy cleanup.
While Wohbay’s Griddle Mat is a durable non-stick surface to protect your griddle, it will only do so if it fits your griddle. The product lost points with our reviewers due to the fact that there were gaps in coverage when applied to a 36” griddle. Because it is not trimmable, it rendered it unable to be used. This griddle mat also did not feel as premium in regards to the quality of its material and does not offer any bacteria-blocking elements to maintain a more hygienic griddle surface.
