Quality of product is not worth the price. It has a cardboard backing so good luck if it gets wet!

Convenient to Have
Totally convenient; especially when cooking a lot of dishes at the same time. Nice to have this instead of looking around for potholders to use when placing a hot pot on the counter. So glad I got it - and intend to get more for my family.

Would not purchase again.
I was not happy with the quality. I thought the medal would be thicker. _ it is not very sturdy & bends when you hold it. I would not purchase these again. I had some from years ago & they were very much sturdier.

Saves expensive countertop
Nice looking metallic pads make it easy to pull hot pots off the stove without ruining my expensive new countertops. Got one for each side of my stove.

Great Counter Protector
I have one for my counter and 2 by my range top. I put one on the each side. Easy to clean the spatters and keep the range top looking clean at all times. Made my life easier....a messy cooks dream!

Very useful
I have this positioned next to my cook top and is so useful.

Nice insulated Counter Mat
Very convenient sizes and nice visual appearance. Used to protect counter tops from hot items. Sizes designs are very suitable. Surface material could be more resilient to minimize marring and denting.

Poor quality
Cheap construction caused irreparable bend.

Don't have to keep reaching for pot holder to put hot pans or oven ware on

Was exactly as described
This fit exactly for the purpose I was looking for.

It gets the job done
This was the perfect replacement for my 94-year-old mother's ancient protector pad of the same design and color. She loves it!

Great Idea for your kitchen
I love this small stainless steel mat that saved my kitchen ambiance. I had a gap in my counter when I removed an old cook top. The gap was filled in with wood and painted white. It just wasn't working. When I saw this stainless steel mat advertised in the Harriet Carter catalog, I immediately ordered it. The mat fits over the painted wood and was the perfect solution to my dilemma. It would be great to have larger mats. I can place any hot dish coming out of the oven. Or the small frying pan on the stove. The mat cleans easily. Buy it. It's great.

Love, love, love it.
I use this product in the kitchen. I sent the pots and spoons on it.
Nov 05, 2015
Love them. Got two but could be longer
TIred of using potholders under hot pots. Cheaper through you than other places. Could have been longer though.
Aug 11, 2015
Attractive & Good Quality
I use it to sit hot pots on.
Aug 02, 2015
Should be wider to fit under common size pots and pans.
Jun 04, 2015
Very pleased and would recommend this to my friends.

Excellent Product
This is an excellent way to protect your counter tops from hot cookware

Great hot pad
Looks good and you won't have to worry about harming your kitchen counter

chrome counter mat
Had one with my old stove, needed new one for my new stove. This came as described in the catalogue. Offers another place to rest hot pots and pans since the new stoves are only 30" versus my old one which was 36"

Hard to find range top mat
Product protects range top for hot pans, cookware

I love this!
I really like this mat, I wish it was a little bit wider, and the bottom was more durable, and not made of paper! I'm not comfortable putting a heavy, really hot skillet on it because I have new countertops and I'm afraid it would be too hot. I love to put it on my island counter because we do buffet style meals most of the time and I can put 2 pans on this mat and if something drips on it, I can just wipe it off. I can also just lay a spoon or fork on it, If I use pot holders, then they have to be put in the washer and dryer and sometimes they stain. For the price I feel this should be better made.

Insulated Mat
This is a great item to put your hot pans, baking sheets on so that you don't burn your counter tops. easy to store in cabinet or cupboard. wipes off easy, but be sure to dry if using a wet cloth as this will rust.

Insulated Counter Mat
I purchased this to protect 2 burners from food falling into them while I use 2 others. I like the look of them, and they wipe clean. However, they have a cardboard backing, thus it cannot be washed on both sides. Also, I noticed is has warped. It really shouldn't have a paper-based back. I don't expect it to last very long.

Insuled counter mats
We bought a stainless stove with black top. and push these up against each side so stuff don't get in between stove and cabinets. they don't go all the way back against back splash, but they look as they were made with the stove. you can sat hot things right off on to them.
Mar 08, 2014
I like this product, I may get another one for the other side of the oven. Looks good. Easy to clean.

insulated counter mat
I put it next to my stove and put hot pots on it. It works very well.

Do NOT use for cast iron!
I have one on each side of my stove. They are good for regular pots and pans, even coffee pots. BUT, they are way too thin for cast iron or any other thick pan surface that would hold the heat longer.
Jan 28, 2014
Pretty and functional
It's pretty and I plan to buy more since no any other items on the market can do the same - I used it to prevent cooking oil splash on the counter top. The backing is paper with metal wrapped around, it will be easier to clean if the back is water proof.

product is expensive, too thin and bends
used for the kitchen it's poor quality, very thin and it bends easily too expensive
Dec 24, 2013
very pleased
really like this product/could be wider

Kitchen utility
Have formica counter tops -- insulted mat provides the extra protection for being able to set a pot down that is right off the stove. Also, the length of mat lets one sit it next to the stove to provide the coverage over the crack between stove & counter top.

The right recipe for my counter top.
Having a large group of people for Thanksgiving. Need to setup countertop with food. Bought 2 mats to cover and protect my countertop from be burned. Will move over to stove for hot pans as well. not too wide for the bathroom countertop as well.
Nov 17, 2013
Does its job
The color is nice and it does it's job effectively. It is a lot smaller than I had expected so I would recommend buying two for more surface area to use. Very easy to Store because it's thin.
Nov 09, 2013
Good Product, a little disappointed
I bought this product before and was happy to see it in your catalogue. I was however disappointed when I realize there was only 1 in the package. A little pricy for only 1. This should be stated clearly on the site and in the catalogues.
Nov 03, 2013
Works fine
This product works fine.
Oct 24, 2013
Just what I needed
I have very limited counter space (wood) and really needed something small to put hot food on.

Nice heat pad
It works okay does the job for what I got it for.

They work
They are great to use next to the stove or on the table to keep the counter and table top safe. I would like for them to have been a bit wider and they are a bit flimsy. When I pick them up to wipe off, they feel as it they are made of cardboard on the underside and could bend in half in I am not careful. They have protected my counter but I am not sure how long they will last if underside gets wet.
Jun 24, 2013
Meets my need!
Good to put things out of the oven on it. I use it close to the stove. Don't have to worry about burning my counter top.

counter mat
adds color to the kitchen; very useful and versatile.
May 07, 2013
Very handy
This is very useful right next to the cooktop and blends nicely with the stainless steel top. I use them on the dining table for hot pots and they look great.

Quality is great
Our tenant had burned a bad place on counter top next to sink. My husband came up with the idea to purchase this counter mat to cover up the bad spot. Worked perfect since it is next to stainless steel sink. The next tenant will have this mat available to use for hot pots!

good on the counter and protects
Light weight and great for camper countertops
Dec 10, 2012
does the job perfect
Oct 26, 2012
Poorly made and not attractive.
Oct 08, 2012
For the price OK.
I set hot objects on them (2) every day. I placed them under my glass cutting board to keep them flat. If they were made so they would be flat, it would be a better product. They do product the counter tops. I did use they first without the cutting board.
Oct 03, 2012
I tried to order wide matts I had received previously. Told they were no longer available I foolishly ordered without measuring 3 smaller matts that I had used before. They were not wide enough to cover my area.
Sep 13, 2012
Its handy and easy to put away
Use it next to the stove and in the center of our table for hot serving dishes.
Aug 05, 2012
These mats are sturdy and look good too!
I like these because they save my countertops from heat damage. I've been using them for years and will buy again when the time comes.
Jul 22, 2012
Attractive & Functional
Works perfectly in front of the microwave and toaster oven to protect countertops from hot dishes.
Feb 21, 2012
works great for hot dishes
Use it for placing hot canning jars on, it does rust after having a long use. But it works.
Jan 24, 2012
Very useful.
Products were just as pictures. Delivery was in a timely fashion.
Dec 21, 2011
too much whiz not enough bang
looked very cheap
Nov 29, 2011
needs to be heavy in weight.
not heavy enough need weight like a wood cutting board.
Nov 25, 2011
wouldn't buy it again
I would not buy it again, the top looks very nice, but the bottom is cheap cardboard. I f it get wet, it will fall apart. Should be just sollid metal or silicon on the botom.

Nov 15, 2011
it was what I expected
It would not fit in box so they bent it in half. Cannot be straighten without looking like... Would cost more to ship it back than it is worth. Went to trash with catalog.
Oct 15, 2011
It's just okay. Could be a little wider to accommodate mid size and large pots. Needs better packaging, ie, cardboard sleeve, to protect in shipping, as mine was dented and creased upon arrival.
Sep 06, 2011
Great product, glad I found it
I have it sitting on the counter near the stove, when I take a hot pot or pan off the stove, I set it on counter mat instead of right on the counter.
Aug 23, 2011
I use these on top of my white stove to blend in with counter top.

counter mat
[...]This my second one I bought from you the last one was the larger one and I had it for several years. I hope this will last as long.
Aug 03, 2011
Nice item to have on hand
All is well with this item, with the one exception... i.e. it is a bit smaller than I anticipated... would like to have a larger (wider) model, but buy two and voila!!!

Hot Buy!
I use two side-by-side for more than the 8 inch width coverage. Makes for an attractive counter top by stove. Cleans easily. Care is needed to prevent excess moisture as the undercoat could be soaked and cause ruin of mat.Still, I'm pleased and would recommend to a friend.
Apr 07, 2011
I like the and would like to order 3more
used daily keeps cantertops clean and clear
Apr 06, 2011

Mar 25, 2011
Good product for the price
I use this product almost every day. It is well worth the price to save my new countertops from heat and staining.
Mar 22, 2011
Counter Mat
I needed something to put hot pots on when they come off the stove to keep from burning the counter top and this item was perfect.
Mar 12, 2011
Looks good and works well
very good product to replace something to protect counters I had had for a long time. Works great and is easy to clean.
Feb 22, 2011
Just what I was looking for.
I was looking for something for the kitchen countertop area in my travel trailer. This is perfect. Not too large, but wide enough to sit those hot pans from the oven or stove top.
Feb 21, 2011
Useful addition to our kitchen
This is a very useful product which helps us to avoid heat damage to our kitchen counter tops. It is solidly built and attractive.
Nov 04, 2010
Nice for those hot pans
Good at the side of the range to sit those hot pans.
Oct 05, 2010
This is a great product and looks good
I have been having my insulated counter mat for almost 4 years and I would not do without it. I have the copper because we have formica counter tops and it blends in. I can put a hot pot or pan on it and it still looks great. I am ordering 3 for our daughter for her new house. She requested them.
