Solid mat holds up to heavy tamping pressure, protecting counter surfaces. Dimensions are accurate (6 x 8), but photo shows a mat with different dimensions. When new, the mat had a heavy (and offensive) rubber smell. Multiple washings have reduced the odor, and hopefully that reduction will continue.... The odor kept me from giving the product 5 stars.

The mat does a great job at providing a solid yet non-rigid surface while tamping your coffee. The shape and size is just right for the Breville portafilter. The rubber seems impervious to scratches and dents since the mat looks as new as day one, even though it has been used quite a bit. The mat is extremely easy to clean and dries very quickly after a wash.

The only drawback to an otherwise perfect tamping mat is the smell. It has a strong rubber tire scent, which doesn't seem to go away. I place the portafilter on the tamping mat once I'm done with my coffee and it only takes a few minutes for the rubber scent to be transferred to the portafilter. Judging by the smell, I doubt that the rubber used for this tamping mat is FDA compliant. This mat feels and smells like cheap tire rubber. I also think that this rubber is not safe to be used around food.

There is so much talk about the heating your cups, heating your portafilter, etc. Then at the end you place your portafilter on this mat and you push hard against it only for the portafilter to pickup its strong rubber scent.

My coffee now has a hint of floral notes with traces of rubber tire.

Pad is nice thickness and does the job. Smell is really bad and I expect multiple washings and leaving out in sun will help - some web sites suggest putting it in bag with kitty litter for several days/weeks works well. Expect it will stink really bad for awhile.

Like all the other reviewers have said it stinks. Thankfully the smell went away but I had one cranky girlfriend for a while since every time she was in the kitchen she would have a headache which is why I dropped it a star from 3 to 2.

FYI it smells the same as if you went to Costco's tire department, and it pretty much feels like the same type of rubber as a tire. In hindsight I should have looked for an alternative product and paid a little more, but it still gets the job done. If you care about aesthetics at all though look into alternatives products.

The one I got smelled like an old recycled tire, like gasoline. It kind of went away over time and with repetitive washes...or maybe I just got used to it. Oh well, hope it's not toxic. It does work great however, and I'd still recommend it and Amazon Merchant sellers.

This mat allows me to tamp coffee without worrying about putting undue stress on my naked portafilter. It lifts the portafilter off the counter surface enough to make it level, something important for good espresso shot.

It's literally a slim piece of rubber. It does have the rubber odor, as everyone complains. When I opened the package, the smell reminded me of pirelli tires I installed on my 911. Perhaps pirelli is getting into the espresso industry?
Regardless, simply wash it and air it out... the smell eventually decreases over time.

The bottom line - it protects the counter and effectively allows proper tamping. Because it stinks, dont leave your tamper or portafilter sitting on it for an extended period of time.

Some reviewers have complained about a strong odor, but in my case the odor was not unpleasant and faded away within a day or so.

The rubber is very dense and the mat works perfectly for the intended use.

Mine came with some slight scratches and markings on the surface, but it gets dented up from the portafilter as you use it anyway, so I guess I don't care much - one star ding.
