    I put in 2 layers and I have the silver stuff facing the top. I think someone told me that the silver is supposed to be next to the hot pot to reflect the heat up towards the pot? I ave no idea if it is true but it is the way I use it. Of course if the hot pad is reversible, it makes sense to put the silver facing the outside on both sides.

    Yes, one layer of Insulbright is not enough.
