    Let us know if they fit, my guess would be not as it says 5mm dia for the smaller size and the legs of the pan stand must be not far off that and then the leg has to go right through the grommet if my memory serves me.

    Best of luck anyway.

    Went down that road, got the proper ones in the end. Size is right material is not.

    I think the stand is made from 3mm diameter, so yhey may well be OK.

    They look just the ticket! I would think that if they are silicone then they would be fine........ ours have cracked a few times but I badgered the dealer for a dozen spares so still on those at the moment.

    I'm also interested in how you get on with them (y)

    I would be very interested to hear how you get on with these Mel. The proper replacements are a) very expensive and b) don't last very long anyway.

    I'll let you know how they fare when they arrive - we've measured the existing ones and the pan stand so they should be the right size!

    I'm disappointed with the originals though - our camper has been 'lived in' for less than 60 days since we got it in June (long holiday, camper show, a weekend away and a couple of days out) - and all of the original rubber grommets on the cooker have gone brittle, 4 have totally disintegrated now so we need something - these cheapo ones can't be any worse than the proper expensive ones and at the price even if I had to replace them every week days it isn't going to break the bank!

    For those who are more flamboyant you can get coloured ones!

    Ours are more like a ceramic and are still OK although a couple keep coming out when you remove the rack for cleaning. Ours are 10 years old so I don't know if later ones are different.

    I think the right material would be something like PTFE, as heat transfer makes its way down the grid to where it goes through the grommets/nipples, and even a high temperature rubber isn't going to last that long.

    Posted elsewhere that we use plastic rawl plugs.............make a close fit and not had any

    problems with the heat........... .not as exotic as nipple grommets but worked well so far.

    Possibly, but they can't be any worse than the originals so worth a try at the price.

    In a sense it is. The original use of these things is in tattooing. I believe, but refuse to research more, they fit around the needle.
