I'll be the first to admit that these anti-fatigue mats are not cheap. But if you spend long hours at the stove or sink in the kitchen, they can be truly worth it. It helps relieve pressure on your feet and knees. I've used this mat for several years, and it hasn't shown even a speck of wear. It hasn't curled up at the edges, and it's as comfortable to stand on today as the day I got it.
