Pyramid Pan Reviews
Review of Pyramid Pan, a malleable silicon cooking mat which supposedly absorbs fat and grease while providing balanced heating distribution.
Pyramid Pan is a flexible, non-stick cooking mat marketed by As Seen on TV. Each mat is covered with 556 small pyramid-shaped protrusions which allows heat to evenly circulate around food, and the product is marketed as a convenient way to cook healthier meals because it has absorbent properties which soak up fat and grease. According to specification provided by the product website, dimensions of Pyramid Pan are listed as 16-1/8″L x 11-1/2″W x 1/2″H. It is not exactly clear what kind of material the mat is made of (the commercial indicates that it is silicon), but the website claims that the material is safe for dishwashers/microwaves and can be heated up to 428°F (220°C).

Pyramid Pan Reviews
On websites like Amazon and Bed Bath & Beyond, Pyramid Pan has mainly positive user reviews awarding it a collective 3.5-3.8 stars out of 5. Most of these reviewers claim that the mat works as advertised. However, a minority of detractors claim that Pyramid Pan can be difficult to clean, and that the pyramidal designs cause cooking times to be increased because the food is lifted slightly off the cooking surface by the mat. A few reviewers also claimed that the heat circulation is not as evenly distributed as claimed in the advertising.
Pyramid Pan is a silicone baking/cooking mat covered with pyramid-shaped projections. Advertising claims this design allows fat/grease to drip away from the food while improving heat circulation resulting in evenly distributed cooking. The majority of online user reviews for Pyramid Pan are positive, yet some claim that some of the advertising claims (namely even heat distribution and easily cleanable) are overstated to some extent.
