Customer Questions & Answers

Will this mat be heat resistant if placed under a table top grill?

We have purchased a Trager PTG to take with us traveling. Would like to know if this mat would work to lay on top of a picnic table and the grlll on top. Needs to be heat resistant up to 450 deg.
Asked by: BTSM
From their website: The "Original" Grill Pad® is naturally environmentally heat and weather resistant. You should allow a minimum clearance of twenty-four inches between the heating appliance and The "Original" Grill Pad™ on your deck or patio surface!

Does it hold moisture under the protector???

Asked by: mike
If placed on dry deck or patio, the Grill Pad does not trap moisture. The product is designed to lay flat and by its weight will fit flat to your surface.

42 in. x 30 in. Rectangular Berry Black Deck Protector is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 43.

I bought this grill pad to put underneath my grill to stop grease from dripping on it and staining the wood. Well, after a few days of wet, snowy weather, I moved the pad to shovel and noticed that it left stains worse than actual grease dripping on it. There are now large black stains in the shape of the pad on the wood and they won't come out. Even after drying out, the stains are still there. Very disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't believe the other Reviews without Undertanding the Issues I just got off the phone with the manufacturer and they explained to me what MAY possibly happen. There is nothing that can leach color in the mat. Most problems have to do with: 1 - items under the mat will fade/weather/stain differently then items not under the mat. It makes sense - the carpet under my couch looks very different then the carpet in the rest of my living room for the same reason. 2 - Water may get trapped under the mat. This may be fixed by letting everything dry out. I guess this is unless the water trapped may stain the deck. 3 - The majority of the issues (which there are a few of) has to do with composite material (as per the manufacturer AND reflected by the reviews of this product on multiple sites). If you are putting it on concrete or pavers this is a NON-ISSUE. 4 - There is one particular deck manufacturer that there are moisture issues with and there is something you can do to mitigate. Contact the manufacturer to make sure yours is not the one and/or what the mitigation is. I always consider reviews when buying items but with this it was strange. Some people loved the product and then some stated it destroyed their deck. It was then I realized all of the negatives were on decks and almost all stated composite (some did not say anything about the deck material). When in doubt contact the manufacturer to understand if there are any issues and then correlate that information with the reviews and then make an educated descision

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Protector I've purchased two of these, one for each charcoaler, and they are exceptional. Worth every penny. Very sturdy and easy to clean off. Lasts for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this mat I got two of these mats to put under my big smoker. I needed these since ash and burning cinders fall out of the fire box all the time while smoking meat for 20 hours. We just built a new deck and didn't want to burn a big hole in it like the last one<G>. The mats worked perfectly and are truly fireproof. A fancy plastic mat would not have worked. I recommend these mats for serious cooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking Deck protector This mat looks great on our deck, it fits under our Weber Spirit 300. It's top notch. The store didn't carry the color or size so I ordered online and it was delivered in a few days. Very happy with the color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from save your money I bought this product to protect my new deck from the drippings from the grill so it wouldn't get stained. It protected the deck from the drippings but the pad its self stained the deck worse then the drippings would have. even power washing would not remove the stain. nice huh. and this is after one month of being on the deck

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible! If I could give this a minus rating I would.... after 2 weeks on my brand new composite deck... I moved the grill and lifted the "protector" only to find that the pad had discolored the deck. The deck is ruined in the exact shape of the protector (handle shape and all.) It must have produced heat between the protector and the deck from the sun and discolored it.. it was not from the grill as I had not even used the grill. UGH... heartbreaking!!
