Cutting boards are one of those essential items to have in the kitchen because they help us prepare the ingredients needed in cooking. However, there are some problems you canencounter with many cutting boards we have at home such as they can warp easily in the dishwasher, they slide on the countertop, and they can sometimes be flimsy and difficult to cut on. But when the Cooler Kitchen’s Extra Thick Flexible Plastic Cutting Board Mats were introduced to us and when we’ve tried them out, these are a great solution.In one package, we are able to receive a set of four color-coded, high-quality, and thick plastic cutting mats.Each of them measures 12 inches by 15 inches. They come in bright and colorful shades with fun fruit and animal designs. Based on the description on its packaging, they are created using high-quality, food grade plastic.
We can say that these textured and flexible cutting board mats are very durable because we are able to use sharp knives that can cut through other cheap cutting board mats on them.And since they are made with durable and high-quality plastic they do not wear out easily unlike other brands.
Another thing that we noticed which makes these cutting board mats sturdy is their 1mm thickness. Thismakes them durable while still maintaining their flexibility to curl and bend as needed. For example, these cutting boards were able to flex to help us transfer food directly into a bowl or pot.
Another common problem we have with other cutting boards and mats is that they tend to slip on our counter tops. Butwiththese cutting board mats from Cooler Kitchen, we no longer experience that because it has a crosshatch textured back, allowing them to grip on surfaces and preventing them from slipping.
Another thing to note is they can prevent cross contamination because they are color coded for different food groups.

These thick and flexible mats are also naturally non-stick, non-toxic, and BPA free. It also has an anti-microbial protection and built-in defense properties, inhibiting the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria.
Aside from using them as cutting board mats, we were also able to use them as placemats because of their stunning colors and design.These cutting board mats are also easy to curl, roll, clean, and store for just about any use, andan additional thing we like is all of them are dishwasher safe.
