Use it everytime I unload the dishwasher!
I have never heard of these things and figured I might be cluttering my kitchen with more items I did not need. I recently moved into a much bigger house and whenever I unload the dishwasher there are a lot of item with water on them. I used to place a lot of paper towels on the counter, place the wet items on the paper towels, then reuse the paper towels once dried. It was a ritual I became used to.When I received this mat it was folded up. I decided to wash it because if I am placing clean dishes on it, I want to make sure it is clean. I also dried it in the dryer and it looks perfect! It did still have the marks from where it was folded and easily folded back up which was handy because I placed it in a drawer near the dishwasher folded.I have placed it on the counter over the dishwasher when I unload it and place the wet items on it. I then let them air dry and put them away. The mat then dries and I fold it up and place it back in the drawer for the next use. I think I will wash it about once a month. Since I am placing clean dishes on it and it is dry when placed away, there is no need to wash it a lot.I love this thing and did not think I would use it as much as I have. It also comes in handy if you have a lot of dishes that are hand wash only and your in sink dish holder is too small like mine. I just place the extra items on the mat and let them air dry.I have not had an issue with water soaking through. If you need extra room for dishes or want to save paper towels, this thing is for you!
envision drying mat
This mat works great soaks up the water is the right size and is very easy to clean I would recommend this.
Better than a dish cloth
i love this mat. It works well. Leaves no watery mess or smell. It also looks much neater than a dish towel which I was using. Thank you Amazon.
After only a few weeks of use, this mat had several stains that wouldn’t wash out. It worked as advertised, but who wants a stained mat on the kitchen counter? I bought another one made by KitchenAid and it’s much better. Have used it for months with no stains…
I expected the mat to be big but it was bigger than expected (that’s a good thing). It’s nice to have that extra drying space for hand washed dishes. It fits pots and pans nicely and many utensils at a time. Love it.
I bought this one for my granny and she loves it. Its good quality and there are no bad smells at all. Dishes get dry so fast. Was skeptical when ordered.
great for a few dishes
I purchased this dish drying mat to be used with a small group that regularly has coffee mugs. Each person can wash their mug and set it upside down not he mat to dry. This mat is a definite improvement over a regular dish towel It is absorbent and thick, and for the just a few dish uses it doesn’t get drenched and get the counter wet below it.I don’t see this being much help or improvement over the plastic liners underneath a full drying rack for a regular family size number of dishes. This works well for a small, regular amount, not tons of drippy water. One person did spill about half a cup of water on one part of the mat, and the mat was soaked through in that area. This could lead to water damage if someone has the mat on a surface that could be water damaged.
I just love this mat, does the job. Dries very quick ans it is the right size to hold several items.
