I was on my feet for the majority of the 10 hours and ended the day PAIN FREE!
“I just wanted to say what a great product this is. I have back issues and have a hard time in the kitchen after just a few hours. This past Mother's Day I put the mat to the test and it passed with flying colors. I was on my feet for the majority of the 10 hours and ended the day PAIN FREE! A first for a long holiday for me. Thank you so much, this has made my life MUCH easier! I will have these in my home always. I also bought one for my MIL for her bday. She is in her 70s and just developed some ankle/joint issues. She raved about the mat after only a few days.”

I love these mats. I have two in my kitchen and bought one of the mats.
“I love these mats. I have two in my kitchen and bought one of the mats. I got tired of carrying the mat from the kitchen to the bathroom and broke down and bought another one. I have bad problems with my feet and can't stand for long. These mat give me a little extra time to be able to get things done, in my kitchen and soon for the bathroom too.”

I have two in my kitchen because I have tile floors and I love them.
“I have two in my kitchen because I have tile floors and I love them. Tonight when I was cooking a raw egg rolled off the counter onto the gel mat and bounced and never cracked or broke. I thought that was pretty amazing.”
Betsy B - Greenville, NC
This is one of my better investments and I encourage all my friends to consider them for their homes.
“I wish my hardwood floors could be as comfortable as my gel-pro mats!! I placed my mats at the kitchen island and sink. I love the feel of the gel and when passing through the kitchen I purposely take the route of my mats to feel the cushion and comfort. This is one of my better investments and I encourage all my friends to consider them for their homes.”

I have two GelPro mats myself and have sung their praises to many people.
“I have two GelPro mats myself and have sung their praises to many people. I had never enjoyed cooking in the past because my legs and feet would ache from standing too long in one spot. That problem is now in the past. And this mat that I've just ordered will be a housewarming gift for my friend of 55 years. I know she will appreciate this mat as much as I do mine! Thank you for such good dependable service...just wanted to tell someone!”
Thank you for a fine purchase experience and thanks from the very bottom of my happy toes.
“Thank you for my chestnut GelPro mat. I was pleasantly surprised that it had arrived so soon after placing an order--the mat arrived before Thanksgiving!! Cooking in comfort; there is nothing like it--you are standing on the Gelmat cooking up a storm and realize you are not tired!! What a revelation. But most of all, I am very grateful to spend my dollars on products made in the USA with pride. Thank you for a fine purchase experience and thanks from the very bottom of my happy toes.”
The comfort factor is undeniable. I have foot issues and still love to spend hours in the kitchen.
“I am writing simply to say what a great thing you have got going on! First, I have dabbled with the idea of these pads for awhile. They are an investment in all honesty and I wanted to be sure I was spending my pennies wisely. I called the 1-800 line and spoke to a very nice woman whose name I can't recall. She gave me the information I asked for- such as weight per mat, cleaning, etc. She offered to take my order but I wasn't ready just yet- I wanted to tour your website more. When I decided to buy, I then had to decide on pattern, etc. Not so easy for an item that I am thinking will be in my kitchen for many years. This is not the "get tired of the pattern and replace" article.
I selected a basic black. I had my eye on the rattlesnake red ochre but figured my husband would flip- or think I had flipped! When he was touring the website, he saw the red ochre and suggested (sheepishly) that is what we should purchase. I was thrilled and quickly ordered so we couldn't change our minds. These mats look amazing in our kitchen. We have red cherry cabinetry and black appliances on a creamy ceramic floor. But- the mats are more than looks as you know. The comfort factor is undeniable. I have foot issues and still love to spend hours in the kitchen. I can now stand barefoot or just in socks and really enjoy the benefit of the pads "squishy" texture. They are everything I had hoped for in terms of comfort. I don't have to wear shoes constantly. They clean up quick and don't absorb or hold spills and drips. We have pets and the pad don't collect pet hair like my old kitchen rugs which was a never-ending cleaning dilemma.
I am on a mission to write companies of products I buy. In these times, it is so hard to want to spend money. I know if I worked for a company such as yours, it would make my day to know that customers are still out there and still loving what is available. I thoroughly enjoy my purchase and wanted you to know about it. I wish I had not waited so long.”
Skip W - Seattle, WA
Thanks to your wonderful floor mat.
“My wife, JoAnn, raves about how your floor mat has helped her throughout the year during many hours of cooking and food preservation of fruit, tuna and vegetables. FYI we live in a floating home moorage with 33 other houses. Your mat is most appreciated in our house as JoAnn has taken cooking and food preparation classes for Turkish, Ecuadorian, Peruvian, Chinese, East Indian and master canning/food preservation certification. She has lived in Italy and Turkey, and careful about food preparation which means hours standing on your GelPro in the kitchen. People without your mats in their kitchen may be "Sleepless in Seattle." However, thanks to your wonderful floor mat, JoAnn sleeps very well after days standing and cooking in her kitchen near Portland.”
Shawna S - Houston, TX
Its like standing on a cloud to use them.
“My mats arrived today...they are gorgeous and its like standing on a cloud to use them. Well done, wonderful product. I bought a little mat at Christmas at Bed, Bath and Beyond to try them....I'm sold.”
An unexpected benefit of having one of your pads on the kitchen floor.
“This is a little story about an unexpected benefit of having one of your pads on the kitchen floor. My 82-year old mother has trouble holding onto things sometimes. This morning she dropped two raw eggs, in the shell. One fell about 3 inches to the countertop and cracked, leaking egg white onto the counter. The other missed the counter completely, and fell 3 FEET onto, wait for it...your gel mat! It bounced slightly, and never even cracked! She picked it up, rinsed it off, and went back to cooking!”
Laura H - Hamden, CT
Thank you so much for a wonderful product.
“ This is the second GelPro kitchen mat I've purchased and both purchases have been flawless in terms of customer service, product quality, timely delivery and just plain pleasant dealing, particularly since I requested and received a non-standard delivery date. The young lady I dealt with was both pleasant and accommodating. Thank you so much for a wonderful product. I have been singing your praises to whomever I know would benefit therefrom.”
Mary P - Gladewater, TX
The mat certainly gives me relief while standing to cook for lengthy periods.
“Thank you so much for prompt and excellent customer service, and for a fantastic product. I recently ordered a large khaki basketweave gel mat. Your service representative was most helpful and courteous, and I received my mat in just a few days. I have passed my color samples on to a friend who is interested in a mat to place in front of her large stand-up quilting machine. I really love my gel mat, and walk into the kitchen during my day just to stand on it a few minutes to rest my legs and back. I have had both knees replaced due to arthritis, and have also had three back surgeries. The mat certainly gives me relief while standing to cook for lengthy periods. Thanks again!”

GelPro mats look "Fantastic" in our new kitchen!
“I just had to share with you: First - GelPro mats look "Fantastic" in our new kitchen! Second - They feel great; parades and friends began streaming through the house this weekend - everyone wants your website! Your company/products are definitely on "my recommendation list" - you see sooo many people helped and worked on our home in the past few years since Karina - that we feel we certainly want to highly recommend all of you and your products or serveics to those who enter our home and ask us for recommendations! Again, sincere thanks.”
Judy H. - Bradenton, FL
I will recommend them to everyone!
“I have two 20x36 in the kitchen and I love them! I like to go barefoot and they are so wonderful on the feet, legs and hips! I will recommend them to everyone. They are very easy to keep clean. ”
Mary Ann M - Solana Beach, CA
I'm delighted to report that these mats make all the difference for me.
“I find it is hard to stand on my tile floors to cook for any length of time. I heard of your mats and finally purchased three last week. I'm delighted to report that these mats make all the difference for me--I'm telling everyone about them. I only hope that the word can get out to others so if they have similar problems, all is not lost!! It was heartbreaking to me to find that I had to give up my last passion I could take part in indoors--cooking...just because I couldn't bear to stay on my feet for very long. The mats certainly are helping me along on my road to recovery! Thank you again for a wonderful product. (Tonight I was in my kitchen for 2 1/2 hours. Normally, on my tile floor, my feet and legs tire and hurt after very little time has passed.) I'm thrilled!!”
Margie G - Albuquerque, NM
The overall kitchen looks great. Thank you for developing a great product.
“Just want to say how very much I like the GelPro mats. Superior is the only way to describe the design, the appearance, and the comfort. I have not experienced any more discomfort in my legs and I enjoy standing on the mats as I prepare meals. We bought two: one 20 x 36 and a 20 x 72. The kitchen floor is enhanced by the mats. The overall kitchen looks great. Thank you for developing a great product. We bought one in November 2008 and the other one on December 2008. All I can say is that we should have done it much earlier. Again, thanks!”
Nancy - San Antonio, TX
The mats have helped tremendously.
“Thank you so much!! We love our new GelPro mats. We have a new house with concrete floors. We are both 50+ and like to cook. Standing on the floor made our joints ache at times. The mats have helped tremendously. We got them for both kitchen and bathroom. Anyway, thought you'd like to know you have satisfied customers.”
Cheryl W. - Las Cruces, NM
I no longer feel any discomfort in my knees and legs when I prepare a meal or wash dishes standing on the mat.
“The mat I purchased for our kitchen matches our hardwood floor and maple cabinets perfectly. I no longer feel any discomfort in my knees and legs when I prepare a meal or wash dishes standing on the mat. It is wonderful. My floor mat rates as one of my best 2008 household purchases! May your holiday season be filled with joy and blessings. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!”
Karen & Wade V. - Albuquerque, NM
Want to let you all know how much we enjoy our GelPro mats.
“Want to let you all know how much we enjoy our GelPro mats. I bought my first mat 2 years ago, and got another last year. My brother likes it so much he wishes his whole kitchen floor could be made out of GelPro! They make great gifts, and are becoming a family favorite -- Dad has one, and my sister has two. This is the best looking, most comfortable mat on the market.”

It was like putting out a fire in my feet. Thanks - great product.
“Just linked to you from your interview on Slashfood. I bought a GelPro a couple months ago to use in my store for standing behind the cash register. It was like putting out a fire in my feet. Thanks - great product.”
Jennifer - Corvallis, OR
I just got my gel mat yesterday and noticed an amazing difference in my energy level!
“I just got my gel mat yesterday and noticed an amazing difference in my energy level! Generally, after making dinner on my ceramic tile floor, I'm spent and need to sit in a chair. Last night, preparing the meal and doing clean up on my mat saved so much fatigue that I did 3 loads of laundry, 30 minutes on my bicycle, vacuumed the entire house and went for a walk! I had my doctor prescribe this mat because I had two foot surgeries, low back issues and weight gain from the inactivity. Hard surfaces did me in. Thank you so much for this wonderful mat!!!”
Dee - Fayetteville, GA
With the GelPro mats, I felt as good that evening as I did when I started the day.
“Just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with my GelPro mats. Have used them for about 2 weeks; what a difference. On Friday, was in the kitchen for 8.5 hours preparing for a party the next day. Normally at the end of such a day, my feet and back would have been miserable. With the GelPro mats, I felt as good that evening as I did when I started the day. Thanks for an excellent product.”
Bill M - Vancouver, WA
Makes me want to go barefoot when I cook or wash dishes.

What a great foot and back saver.
“I have had my GelPro mats for over a month now and want you to know how much I love them. What a great foot and back saver. I have one full length in front of my sink and another in front of my cooking area. Superb product, all you said and so much more.”

I LOVE my gel-pro mat.
“I LOVE my gel-pro mat...it has helped tremendously with support of my feet when standing doing dishes or making dinner! Thank you.”
D.J. Abrams - Wintersville, OH
I am quite satisfied with the investment.
“Just a few words of appreciation for your quality product; both 6' gel-pros are in active use in our kitchen/great room. They really do help cushion the 9" ceramic tile floor. I am quite satisfied with the investment.”
Marvin W - Madison WI
The mats are incredibly soothing and make it possible to function in the kitchen.
“I just placed this order, buying another two gel mats. We bought a first pair a couple of months ago, and absolutely love them. I can't tell you how different the floor now feels. I have broken bone in my foot, and the mats are incredibly soothing and make it possible to function in the kitchen.”
Francis C - Sylvania, Ohio
The Gel-Mat is extremely comfortable for me to use in my kitchen.
“I have been very impressed with your service. The Gel-Mat is extremely comfortable for me to use in my kitchen, which has a Pergo floor, and I would not hesitate to recommend your product and services to my friends and acquanitance.”
Nancy M - Rancho Santa Fe, CA
Thank you a thousand times! Great product.
“I just received and unpacked my new gel mat. My kitchen has a slate floor and for the first time since we installed that floor, my feet do NOT hurt after preparing the evening meal. Thank you a thousand times! Great product.”
Sally S - Monroe, Oregon
I am very happy. Standing on them with bare feet is even better.
“Received my Let's Gel mats today. Wow! It certainly does make a difference standing on the tile flooring. The color matches beautifully and with just a quick glance through the kitchen, you'd never know they were even there. I am very happy. Standing on them with bare feet is even better. And, what's better than that is the box says: "Made in the USA". I am thrilled to support an American company. Best wishes for a bright future.”
Ronald J - Little Rock, AR
I was so impressed that I ordered another 72" mat and am telling friends.Little Rock, AR
“ Yesterday my mats arrived much sooner than expected. I was so impressed that I ordered another 72" mat and am telling friends. These look great and my feet/knees/back were all much happier than before! Thanks for fast service and a great product.”

IT'S FANTASTIC!!! We look forward to many years of enjoyment from it.
“ We just received our "GelPro Chef's Mat from UPS this afternoon. I just wanted to take a minute and tell you how very happy and completely satisfied we are with your product. IT'S FANTASTIC!!! We look forward to many years of enjoyment from it. Thanks again for the fine product! ”
Jo-Anne W - Sarasota, FL
I received my gel mat this week and just love it!
“ I received my gel mat this week and just love it! You now have an unofficial sales person in Florida who will be selling gel mats! The fact that construction of the mat is heavy enough to sit tight to the floor is great because there is no chance of tripping. Easy to clean and adds a nice look to the kitchen.”
Nanci B - Bakersfield, CA
I absolutely love my gel mats.
“ I absolutely love my gel mats. I have spent a lot of money on different products over the years that would allow me to stand for extended periods of time in my kitchen. Either they weren't thick enough to do the job, or they had carpeting on the front and a hard backing which prevented them from being cleaned in a washing machine. I accidentally ran across your product while looking on the internet. I am an avid watcher of Food Network programs and have never seen your product sponsoring a show. I would think that other cooks would like to know that your product exists. Thank you again for your product and allowing me to return to my kitchen and create the way I used to.”
Sharon B - Geismar, LA
It is so comfortable and looks beautiful in my kitchen.
“Just wanted you to know that I am very satisfied with my new mat - I chose the long, black one - it is so comfortable and looks beautiful in my kitchen. The longer I have it, the more I love it! :) Thanks!”
Jody S - Palo Alto, CA
It's quite comfortable to stand on, and the color selection is good. I couldn't be more pleased.
“ Since you were so kind to send this very informative and helpful reply to my initial inquiry, I thought I'd like to follow up and let you know that I did order one of the smaller mats, which I've been using for about 3 weeks now. The mahogany floor seems to be just fine, and I love the mat, so today I will be ordering one of the larger mats to use in another location in the kitchen.
What a fine product you have. I've been looking for a long time for a good solution to the problem of how to protect the hardwood floor at the main work areas in the kitchen. Most rugs now available are not good for this purpose for one reason or another, practical or aesthetic. The gel mat is quite attractive, but highly functional.
It's easy to clean, it stays in place, it's quite comfortable to stand on, and the color selection is good. I couldn't be more pleased. And by the way, I was a little concerned that I might find the thickness to be a problem (I was afraid I might trip on the edges), but I've had no difficulty at all adjusting to it.
Thanks for an excellent product backed up by comparably good customer support.”
Julia B - Arlington Heights, IL
