Top Customer Reviews
I hate the "but" in so many instances, but this product's is real and aggravating. They're not flat, period - they've taken a permanent set - a curl of large but inconvenient radius, assumed have appeared in a large parent roll from which they're individually cut. There seems to be no response to rolling them in the opposite direction. They're unhandy to store, which gives me a little frisson of anger every time I get one out (made doubly aggravating because they're otherwise so nearly perfect.) Haven't yet risked damage by heating on a cookie sheet in the oven, but will eventually have to try it.
The main drawback is that the edges of these things curl a lot. I've tried flattening them under cookie sheets and heavy pots, but even after a couple years they still curl, which occasionally makes chopping awkward and messy. I've since bought mats that stay perfectly flat from Sur la Table, and which have a grippy silicone side to keep them from sliding around on the counter, and I'm much happier with those.
Bottom line: they're okay, and I use them, but I'd probably recommend something else.
Unfortunately, I can't get any of the mats to lie flat on a kitchen counter; instead, they bow in the middle, which makes chopping (especially smaller, lightweight items such as veggies or herbs) extremely difficult and frustrating. They will only lie flat if you have something heavy in the center of the mat, like steaks or poultry. Even then, if you change the weight (by picking up the steak, for example), it will immediately bow up again.
I've tried flipping the mats over, which keeps the center in contact with the countertop but doesn't ultimately solve the problem because the corners curl upward and the mat remains unstable. I've tried placing something heavy on the corners to weigh them down during use, but this severely reduces the usable cutting space (and they're not huge to begin with). I've even tried flattening them out by storing the mats underneath heavy, weighted objects for up to one week: no difference. I don't know if this is a defect in my specific batch or the product in general, or whether its a result of poor packaging/shipping (they seemed fine upon arrival).
Save yourself some frustration and buy a few high quality plastic or bamboo cutting boards instead. They may be a bit heavier and a pain to wash up sometimes, but at least you can actually use them.
Not sure I would recommend to a friend. I'd definitely warn them about the curl & then give them one of mine to see if they like it or not. Not sure I would purchase again. Maybe try another brand????
They are also harder on your knives than a wooden block.
