This has been used multiple times over a large 12" cast iron skillet (steaks, burgers, etc.). So far so good. It has significantly reduced the splatter around the kitchen while having no impact on cooking. As noted by others, it is large. It's the right size if you use a 12" skillet. Too large if you regularly use something smaller. It needs to be stored where you store sheet pans, cookie sheets, cutting boards, or other large items. The hand doesn't lay flat when folded, so storage could be tricky for those with tight spaces. Cannot compare to other similar products.
