REVIEW: Gel Pro Chef's Mat
We received one of these gel mats for review and have been very impressed. The mat is designed to help people with low back pain, foot pain, and heel pain. The difference between standing on it and standing on the hardwood floor is amazing. I didn't realize how hard the floor was until we got this mat.
The mat has also been very tough, withstanding lots of stuff dropped on it. It is easy to clean up and isn't hideous to look at. According to the website, they are lots of colors and style varieties.
If you have back or foot problems and do a lot of standing in your kitchen, this mat will definitely help.

Major pros, major con. If you read a wide range of reviews there's a problem that occurs with these mats, though they are extremely comfortable and attractive: the edges curl up and become trip hazards. No matter how you try to correct the curling, it comes back. I bought two mats 5 years ago and within a month they were curling. Gel Pro replaced both of them, as they did one of my clients who had the same problem, but it happened again. They said they'd corrected the issue, but I do not believe this is true. Too many people have written reviews complaining of the same thing, but Gel Pro continues to produce a product with a major flaw. It's not right that they market this item when there's something dangerous and wrong with it. It's too easy to trip on it. It's too bad because it's got comfort, elegance, and longevity going for it.
