I searched for heat diffuser on Internet and saw BellaCopper. I thought it should be a best option for me. I bought 10" copper plates. Not only they look elegant, but they are great for anyone who wants to have more control over heat. The larger one allow me to have two small pots being heated simultaneously.
The items are not "cheap" at all, but it will last forever! And, the service, is truly excellent: promptness, flexibility, and courtesy. I recommend BellaCopper to all my friends.

I must compliment you on your product. I hesitated for the past few years and finally ordered two 10 inch diffusers. I absolutely love them! I use them under sauces and stews so that nothing sticks. I now reheat many items in pots rather than use the microwave. I will be buying them for gifts in the future.
Ellen T, May 2016
Thank you! My 5th order. Make wonderful gifts for cooks.
Peter S, February 2016
I love my new copper heat diffusers. They work perfectly and sauces are not sticking to the bottom of the pot.
Barbara F, February 2016
Thank you for your help with this purchase! The two 9" plates fit perfectly under our Lodge Cast Iron Griddle and ensure evenly-cooked pancakes. I just turn the burners up higher and pre-heat the griddle for longer. We went from 1/2 charred, 1/2 blanched pancakes to perfectly browned ones. Thanks again!

My son gave us the ten inch plate for Christmas and it works beautifully using an iron skillet on our glass top electric range (I miss gas), and want to say the quality is more than imagined.
Mary T, January 2016
This is a Christmas present; but it's o.k. if you can't get it to him in time. He's wanted these for a while, and I bought them from you several months ago -LOVE THEM!!!

I think I got my first piece of BellaCopper in 2007
later I got the double sized one and still later a larger double one for the larger burners on my stovetop.
I was asked to show how I used them - will be posting the photos on Facebook - because I often need to have several small batches of wine reductions, sauces, spice infusions and thickening syrups for use in baked goods.
I took this photo today to show how I can fit all these on three burners - which would not hold the small pans anyway because it the grate is heavy cast iron and has large gaps which is fine for larger pans but not for the little ones.

Customer Service Rating:
Body:I can't rate customer service because everything occurred flawlessly (no need to contact them). The product is multi-functional, solid, and gorgeous. The throw-in-one-for-free offer was irresistible. Truly - a pleasure doing business with Bella Copper! I discovered them at The Grommet (another great website) last year, but was happy to see that they "stand alone" too! I will bypass the middle man from now on.
Elizabeth S, Dec 2015
Great products, I use them all of the time and I cook a lot for friends and family.
Rick T, December 2015 (This is Rick's third order, Ed.)
I previously bought your plates thru Grommet. I LOVE your product!!
Elizabeth S, December 2015
I have one of your heat diffusers and it is terrific. buying more!
Lenore F, December 2015
Just had to send you a quick note to let you know how pleased I am with the 10” plate! Not only is it a great flame-tamer but it also functions as a flat-top to give me very high and even heat on my home range. Giving serious thought to getting a second one for Christmas!
Keep up the good work!
Tom B, November 2015
Many thanks. Using your terrific copper plates is like adding another three burners to the range.
Ed H, July 2015
I've been using one of your copper plates for years. I now have a fancy stove and need some large plates so that I can use my smaller pots and pans efficiently.
Edward G, June 2015,
You guys are going to be SICK of me, but I LOVE my copper. As I said, before, I get the physics. What I cannot believe is that I never thought of this before. I have been using cast iron griddles for this purpose for years when I had long, low, slow delicate things to make. The copper makes it SO much better and for everything!
Today's adventure? BBQ. I am a certified KCBS Judge so you know I take my Q seriously. This is the first time I have made sauce since receiving my copper. I have made my sauce in stainless pots on cast iron for years. Today with copper.
Everything was all mixed and on the stove. Understand, when I make sauce, I have ONE shot and one shot only. That is because my sauce is not made from the pantry but from the drippings of the cooked meat. If it is ruined, I have to use store bought until I cook again.
My Q went on the smoke last night and was ready today at lunch. The first meal is always without sauce or with the last sauce from the previous cook. So, I have been working my new sauce for 5 1/2 hours now. for the first time in ages, I was actually distracted while cooking and I was sidetracked.
When I realized, I went dashing to check on my sauce. All was PERFECT! this is actually going to make my sauce better since I can simmer it longer and pull every bit of flavor from the blend.
Truly I cannot say enough. This is so marvelous. Not only is it a great way to cook low and slow but it is also money saving. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on stainless cookware with copper cores, I need only buy
less expensive plain stainless cookware as everything now has a copper cladding. Well, sort of but as good, if not better.
I am so glad you thought of this. and so upset that I didn't think of it, first! This is a true money saver as well as a food saver. Next time I order, I am thinking of ordering a couple of smaller ones. When I make BBQ,
it comes off the smoker at lunch and I still want it warm for dinner. the key is to keep it warm. Usually, I boil a pot of water and pour it into a cooler. Then, start another pot boiling. When the second comes to boil, I pour out the first and put a towel in the bottom of the cooler, then pour
the second pot over the towel. That keeps the meat hot all day. Adding a small square or two of copper will hold the temp all the more. I really do
LOVE my copper.

Just thought I would drop a note. I was making Rose Petal Jam last week. the copper plates made it so effortless to insure there were no hot spots simmering the jam.
Today, I made gardenia jam in the same method. Again, not hotspots in the jam. Even better, now that I have two plates, I put my 5 gallon SS pot for processing across two eyes, each with copper plates. The processing has gone
quickly to boil and is processing nicely. Makes it FAR easier for a home gas range to process canning jars.
Karon K, May 2015 - Rani Stephens, my blog is FromTheLifeGivingFire.com
I received my first one a week ago and I love it. it simply lives on my stove. I made lemon curd, orange curd, several candies, Rose Petal Jam and Princess Amelia's favorite Carrot Jam, all using this plate under my primary cooking eye. I was a nuclear power plant operator so the physics & Thermodynamics are obvious to me. I have not thought to do this before and haven't seen any other company offering them in these sizes. I intend to outfit all four eyes and then, at least one rectangle for the oven, perhaps another for the counter.
I make cooking videos, now (I used to just write but have recently started a youtube channel.) I used to use my cast iron griddles under my stock pots. for obvious reasons, the copper plates are superior. I can't wait to be fully outfitted!
Karon K, May 2015 - Rani Stephens, my blog is FromTheLifeGivingFire.com
WOW! I am very impressed with the diffuser!!!!! I bought some lovely Dansk enameled cast iron skillets and they were, unfortunately too big for my regular stove. I have diffusers for some of my other pots, and I tried to find something larger than what was available on most of the kitchen web sites AND would ship to Japan. I called your company and spoke with Pete. He recommended a 10" after giving me instructions about how to accurately measure my pan. WOWEE ZOWEE!!!!! I love to cook and now I can make my favorite dishes that require a larger pan because of the diffuser. I am one verrrrrrrrrrry satisfied customer.
Geraldine I., Japan, April 2015
Body: Easy to order. great communication. Product arrived quickly. Shipping reasonable. What else do you want?
James M, Mar 2015
Body:100% plus satisfied with this company and product. In fact, the BellaCopper heat diffusers are amazing. I have an electric stove with coil heat elements. I can now make pudding with no hot spots causing burning or sticking. And it does defrost meat faster. Really! I am blown away by this product.
I have 2 small burners and 2 large burners on my stove and sometimes I need 3 small burners. Well, with the heat diffuser, I can put 2 small pots on one large burner. And, again, no hot spots.
It's only my husband and I, so I haven't had need to put a roasting pan across two burners yet. But I will in November. I am confident that pan will heat evenly, with no hot spots, for making gravy.
Yes, initially, the heat diffusers may seem expensive, but they are worth it.
They will last generations of lifetimes.

Body:Great quality products!

Hi there: I am a baker and pies are my specialty. I came across your large, 10" copper plate about a year ago and it has truly revolutionized my baking. If you have spent any time trying to perfect a double crust pie you will know what I mean when I say bottom crusts are exceptionally tricky: bake it until dark golden brown (the preferred level of doneness) and the top crust is burned to a crisp. Similarly, if the top crust is done, the bottom remains soggy and undercooked. Most of us settle for the latter and call it a day. I have literally spent years trying any and all different techniques to get a crispy, flaky bottom crust (baking the pie in the lower third of the oven or on the oven floor, various forms of blind baking, sealing the bottom crust with things like egg wash or corn syrup, freezing my pies before baking, etc.). There are more "tricks" than I can possibly mention here and none of them produces a truly crisp and flaky, fully cooked, dark golden brown bottom crust with any degree of regularity.
Enter your 10" BellaCopper plate. It is the PERFECT size for baking a pie (pies are usually 9" or 10" in diameter) and it produces a sublime double crust pie every time! Just place the pie directly on top of the preheated BellaCopper plate and bake away! The plate concentrates the heat on the bottom while the top crust has time to bake and brown as usual. Note that most bakers will need to adjust the oven temperature(s) down and/or raise the level of the oven rack but a little experimentation is worth the end result.
It works wonderfully on the stove but if I didn't know better I'd say it was designed for baking pies. You really should consider this market niche. Bakers - - and I mean home bakers too - - are a passionate breed and will think very little of spending $75 for a perfect pie crust.
Thank you BellaCopper for such a wonderful and ingenious product!

Pizza Stone -
Love your product! Diffuser / defroster AND pizza stone
My hubby finally bought one of these for me for the holidays this year. I put it to good use as an impromptu pizza stone, and it was awesome. Probably better than the Lodge pizza steel or ceramic stone I normally use. It's a little small for this purpose, but was perfect for our 11 person-make-your-own-pizza party the other night. We made twenty five pizzas (of varying sizes) and this copper diffuser/defroster rocked!
It's better than the ceramic stone because any spillage of sauce or cheese cleans off. The little bit of burnt pizza sauce actually shined the thing up!
One 10" was good, but two is better (at least for the quantity we make at times). Maybe two 10" and two 8"?
One thing that is nice about your product, is that it heats up faster than the thicker lodge pan or ceramic/stoneware.
I hope you add this third (and important) use to your web site and sell more of these.
Deanna, Feb 15
Body: Excellent, heavy duty product! Bought 2 sets.
Mark B, Feb 2015
This order is my fourth 10-inch.
Now every (electric) burner, and my whole stove top will be covered. Hurrah ! What a huge difference these Copper plates make !
Lisa C, Feb 2015
Body: Perfect product. Perfect service. A+++××+

My third copper plate order, my second gift. Classic "practical gift" for folks who understand cooking but don't want (or can't afford) to spend $4,000 on a Viking stove
Peter S, Jan 2015
We love your copper invention. So smart and so effective. Thanks!!
Suzanne N, Sept 2014
Body:This is an excellent firm, making an excellent product. My family and I are enjoying using our new BellaCopper plate, and we love the information on the website!
Any L, Aug 2014
Delighted with my original order. Find I need a second 10 inch to complete the coverage . Thank you
Lisa C, June 2014
A great product. Beautiful and very useful. Excellent service.

We already have a 9" in our kitchen and love it! These are gifts. They are great! Not only heating but thawing or cooling. Thanks! Glad you're a local business.
Henry B, May 2014
I am one of your very satisfied customers and am happy to be sending my friend one of your 'bella coppers'..........
Diann D, May 2014
BellaCopper exceeded ALL of my expectations. It was easy to order, and my items arrived really quickly and really well packaged. They even included some complimentary cleaner! I also really appreciated the handwritten note that came with the 6" plate I received. I will definitely be referring my friends.
To be honest, I was originally a bit skeptical about ordering at first because I'd never heard of this company, but I dug around and I couldn't find copper heat diffusers anywhere else, even after tons of googling. I saw someone mention Bella on a message board and figured I'd give it a shot, and I'm really glad I did, because these things are amazing.
Christina F, May 2014
I will seriously promote your products, because they make a huge difference.
Joseph W, Dec 1013
5 out of 5 stars!
These are the real deal! I received two 10” and the 6” copper diffusers a couple of weeks ago. They are perfect for my powerful Blue Star Range. I am so pleased with these I’m recommending them to all my friends. I had purchased a diffuser from Williams Sonoma which was a disaster. These are everything you said and more. I told Williams Sonoma they should be selling these when I returned the sauce burning, bad smelling, poor excuse for a diffuser they sold me. Thank you for selling such a high quality product.
A Very Satisfied Customer
Jack K, April 2012
- Fast shipping, and amazing American built quality copper! Love it!!
Christopher B, Feburary 2012
- I tried the Bella Copper diffuser/defroster the day it arrived. I made polenta and for the first time ever it didn't stick to the bottom of the pot and didn't require as much stirring or attention. No scorched or lumpy bits. Also worked great for keeping things like soup warm without overcooking. Don't understand how the defroster works but it also has been very useful and time-saving. Even brings a stick of cold butter to room temp quickly without melting. I wish I had bought two.
Julie R, Feburary 2012
I know I purchased one 9-inch square in 2007 and subsequently purchased another that size and the smaller 6-inch.
I use these constantly and have found they are ideal for ceramic and pottery stove-top cookware, cazuelas, tagines and etc., to keep from having hot spots in the cookware and also to keep these pieces in use for longer. In my experience pottery ware that is designed for use on burners will degrade after several years of use. I have seen none of this with the use of the BellaCopper diffusers.
My contact by phone was pleasant and efficient and I heartily recommend BellaCopper.
Andie P - Feburary 1012
I was so happy I ordered the Bellacopper diffusers. I used to own the aluminium ones. But these are completely different. I have always used gas and now I am using electric. With electric, things would either cook too fast or too slow. But with Bellacopper diffusers, the transition has been easy for me. I am in the process of moving but once I unpack, I plan to use them with cooking with clay pots like La Chamba. Please do not hesitate. You will be happy. Plus these diffusers are beautiful and you can just put them on your stove as decorative. The other benefit of Bellacopper diffusers is that for those electric stoves that have the red light (like mine), this damages the eyes if the eyes come in contact with it. So, by having the diffuser on it, my eyes do not come in contact with the light. they are really worth it. I plan to buy some more. I ordered the 9 and 10 and next time I plan to buy 9 and maybe 8. Do not hesitate. I highly recommend them. The shipment also arrived promptly. Very well packed. 5 stars!!!!
Marie-Flore, Jan 2012
I ordered my BellaCopper heat diffuser about a month ago, and I wanted to write and say how happy I am with this product. Today was the true test. I made cabbage rolls stovetop to keep the heat down in my kitchen. The rice cooked perfectly and my cabbage rolls were cooked for 1.5 hours at the lowest setting on my stovetop....for the most part. They turned out amazing....and my kitchen remained cool. Wow! Thank you for inventing such a great product.
Jennifer - August 2011
I received my copper diffuser today and already put it to work to partially defrost a steak for stir fries for dinner and I used it to warm up left overs in a Spanish cazuela on my coil stove top. Wow!! I'm totally impressed. My intention was to be able to use my cazuelas and tagines and pots on my stovetop without worry.
Jennifer - August 2011
Love the product! Bought 3 in December, and decided to buy a 4th to cover the last burner. Much more even cooking on my electric ceramic cook top. I am used to cooking on a gas stove, which is much more controllable in terms of direct heat. The copper plates help quite a bit! Thank you!
Carol, February 2011
I am SO happy with my new BellaCopper heat diffusers. A 10" and an 8" are now permanent fixtures on my stovetop. My husband and I cook scrambled eggs often and these tools are remarkable for controlling the heat to the pan. I also like to reduce balsamic vinegar and love that I can moderate the heat. I plan to buy more of these as gifts and will be referring my friends who love to cook to your product.
Thanks for sharing your terrific idea. And I want to mention that Melinda Lee's show on KNX1070 in LA is how I heard about your product. She spoke very highly of your product.
All the best to you!
Kelly, September 2010
They have a superior product that does what they describe. It solves many cooking problems. I highly recommend their product. Gloria, July 2010
Item that was ordered is completely what was needed for using a large stockpot. It was a 10 inch copper heat diffuser. By offering this, the seller helped relieve a major problem that was present, trying to use a large base item on a standard large element. This diffuser transfers the heat over a larger surface and by using a lower temperature to heat the stockpot, makes it totally safer than just putting the stockpot on the element directly.
John, New Zealand, July 2010
Excellent product. A little pricey but it really performs, so it's worth the money.
Sol, July 2010
THANK YOU BELLACOPPER!!! I am thrilled with this purchase! I bought 2 - 10 inch diffusers (3 weeks ago) and received the promotional 6 inch as well. I use them every day and they perform exactly as advertised! The plates are very heavy, thick and BEAUTIFUL! Using them as a defroster works wonderfully as well. They clean up like a dream, though I leave the natural patina unless I've had a spill over.
Susan in Colorado, June 2010
The BellaCopper plates improve distribution of heat, even though I use a high-end gas cooktop and high-end tri-ply cookware. And, as advertised, they appreciably speed the defrosting of frozen foods. Highly recommended.
Jim, May 2010
The copper diffuser is everything Bella said it was and more! I've used it almost every day since I received it!
I have shared with others how much I treasure the diffuser.
Lizette, April 2010
The simmer plate is the best purchase a person can make that cooks. The plate is a must for every kitchen.
Thank you for a wonderful product.
Cynthia, Jan 2010
I used your products to make Thanksgiving
Dinner and the following day for Turkey Frame Soup with
homemade egg noodles. All items turned out just great with less problems then ever before. Adjusting the heat up then down, etc. Now I am giving them for gifts.

Excellent company to do business with, I have no complaints about them but excellent reviews. Communication was great, packing and shipping was excellent and the better news was I received my merchandise in three days. You Rock Bella.

This was my first experience with BellaCopper and I am very satisfied. Not only is the product incredible, but I was also pleased with the ordering process. I would highly recommend BellaCopper to others!
Pam, May 09
I cannot thank you enough for the heat diffuser that I
purchased from you. It is nothing short of
amazing...my electric stove was burning circles into
my le creuset cookware, even on medium heat. my
original solution was to put the cookware in storage
until once again I would have gas burners.
Then I googled heat diffusers and found your website,
and again I say that your diffuser is nothing short of
amazing. I cooked pork medallions on it...and EVERY
medallion came out lovely, crisp on the outside and
tender on the inside, EVERY MEDALION was cooked to
absolute perfection, the heat was THAT uniform....and
the sauce that was made from the drippings? also
thank you so much for making your product available to
it will be well used and greatly appreciated
What a gorgeous and well-crafted product which also does it's job perfectly. Highly recommended! Merchant customer service also excellent.
Finally, I could not find this product for my pressure cooker anywhere with a company that gave me information that led me to believe any validity in what they were stating about their products. Thank you,
A pleasure to do business with, I will recommend them to everyone. Great product, fast shipping, I will be buying here again.
I recently bought two 10" copper heat diffusers. They have worked very well on my gas stove, but last night they really showed their worth. My husband had defrosted two expensive Halibut steaks. We had been gone all day and did not have the energy to cook dinner when we returned. I knew that if I did not cook the Halibut it would be no good by the next evening. I put the Halibut in a teflon skillet with a little water and put a stainless steel lid on it from another set of cookware. The lid fit inside the skillet and was not a match. I set the gas on its lowest setting. I was so tired that I completely forgot that I was cooking anything. Every now and then I thought my husband was cooking something, but the Halibut completely went out of my conscious thought. Later, when my husband went to bed, he found the fish still cooking. It had been cooking for two hours! Unbelievably, it was perfect. Nothing was burned anywhere or even brown. The pan was not scorched. The fish was a little drier than I usually cook it, but it was still very edible. I credit this to the copper heat diffuser that I had between the teflon skillet and the gas flames. I am a good cook. This is the first time anything like this has happened and not ruined the pan, food, and set the fire alarms off. I thank you for your great product. I do not think I will have to worry about burning anything after this. I know this sounds unbelievable, but it is true. We ate the Halibut for breakfast and it was delicious.
I popped them on the stove before dinner and warmed up homemade chili in my stainless steel pots (I treated myself last August for my birthday and threw out all my old rinky dink pots and pans and bought stainless steel) and made grilled cheese sandwiches and the griddle browned them evenly all over and the chili did not stick in a little ring in the middle. I LOVE THEM. Thank you
A pleasure to do business with, I will recommend them to everyone. Great product, fast shipping, I will be buying here again.
Great service~ Did not compare price because frankly, I couldn’t find another place to purchase copper heat diffusers... I would definitely recommend this merchant to anyone. Even received a prompt personal phone call from the owner in response to an email question I sent in.
Very happy with the product...

Just had to take a few moments to say THANKS for introducing us to your great invention, the copper heat diffuser. I can honestly say I have made the best rice in 4 1/2 months of RVing because of it. It did take me 2 tries. The first time I found that the lowest setting of gas on the burner was still too hot. So.... since the diffuser holds heat so well, the second time I turned the burner off as soon as I put the lid on the boiling rice and water and then turned it back on low for the last 15 minutes. PERFECTO! We've also found it a great asset for pancakes. We have a large frypan we use for pancakes and the copper diffuser does an excellent job of providing equal heat to its entire surface. I won't hesitate in recommending this great product to others.
Thought you'd like to know. Hope all is well with you and your family. Say hi to them for us.

Body: I started with an ad in my RV magazine then to Bellacopper’s excellent webb page.Very quick service and good communication.
Body: The copper heat diffuser/defroster plate I purchased works much better than I had imagined it could. I am VERY impressed with it. It wasn’t cheap, but turned out to be money very well spent. I was a bit puzzled about why it had to be delivered via FedEx, but when I saw how heavy
it was I understood. Thank you for making this product available.
You should be proud that your BellaCopper secret weapon helped me get a 1st place in the annual chowder competition at SSA.
Body: Great service and will be shopping at BellaCopper again.
Body: Not an inexpensive item, but the only thing that will work for me, so I’m very glad BellaCopper is around on the web.
I can't thank you enough for all of your help in getting my order to me. I couldn't believe how helpful and effecient you were. It is rare today to find a company that takes such a personal interest in their customers. You went out of your way to straighten out my mistake in ordering the wrong size of diffusers. I will certainly order from you again and recommend you to all of my friends and family. Thank-you,
