Cook in Comfort: GelPro Mats

Several years ago, hubbyman bought me a mat for my kitchen, before they were cool.  He had to go to a supply store and bought the only one he could find.  It was nice and did it’s job, but it eventually wore out from washing and drying it in the sun.  Now, there are all sorts of kitchen mats.  Some are good, some are really bad, but this one from GelPro is AMAZING! No joke…I put it down and stepped on and sighed in relief.   I think I stood there fore 10 minutes just enjoying it and dreaming of my next big cake decorating project.  Fast forward to when hubbyman gets home.  First he gives me a hard time for replacing the one he bought me with this one…until he stepped on it.  That’s when all the jokes stopped.  He could feel the difference.  It actually provides therapeutic support.  He loved it too.  Then, when we had people over for my Messy Party, my friend stepped on it without looking and stopped dead in her tracks.  She had to know what it was, where it came from, and where she could get one. I’ve never had this huge of response over an item I’m reviewing.  Everyone ohhhs and awwws over this mat! The Ergo Comfort Rug is generously sized at 22″x34″ and is over 3/4″ thick after being inserted into the removable cover.  Yes, removable cover!  It’s machine washable.  It’s easy to get in and out and much easier than taking the old one outside to wash and dry.  The bottom is non-slip and doesn’t move on my tile floor at all.  A bonus when there are little ones running all over the place.  There are 11 rug styles to pick from for this model…so there is something to match your kitchen! GelPro mats can be found online at GelPro, Bed, Bath & Beyond (online and in stores) and on Amazon! Check out GelPro on their website and facebook.

  1. I have been looking for a rug for the kitchen so I quit slipping and sliding while doing the dishes. This looks like a great option. Thanks for the review!
