Melted Silpat

We recently replaced out old induction top with a new Bosch indo unit.
Tonight did wok stir fry and put a 12"x12" silpat oven liner beneath the wok to prevent scratching the cook top. (Yes, our steel round bottom wok will couple with the new, and old indo tops)
After heating up, the silpat melted some what at the point of contact and stuck to the wok bottom. No big deal, but it indicates the point of contact was at least over 480*, the advertised capability of silpat!

  1. Hmm I don't use a silpat on my induction, but rather a silicon disk advertised specifically for IH. It can go to 320C which is 600ish F. You could try getting one of them, cost me $5 or so I think for 2.

      Sounds good!
      Remember the source?

      Thank you!

        Bringing this to the top. I've searched online for something like this, but cannot find it.

        Anyone else use silicone underneath pots on their induction range or cook top?

          They are very common in Japan. Can get them at any grocery store, and electronic store (they all have kitchen sections), even the dollar store has them. The dollar store ones offer less heat resistance but for $1 they aren't bad.

          Rakuten has them and ship globally, amazon or other plaes might have them.
