Color-Coded Cutting Mats
I have previously bought some sub-par mats and they didn't last but through two uses with the big knives so I am beyond pleased with these. I don't put them in the dishwasher, so I can't attest to that, but easy to clean by hand, hold up well and when you are in a hurry you don't have to think which one is this for since it has the cute icons on them. Yeah I know, dorky but it is a handy feature.

Thought this was a great idea to prevent contaimination however I found that the plastic was too thin. I ended up leaving some faint knife marks on my countertop. You might be better off placing a thicker board under these plastic ones but then is there really a point to purchase this in the first place?

I'm using these under my 3 cats' dishes.They are great colors and clean off easily - a good purchase.

Little shards of plastic
I normally love my Container Store purchases, but was very disappointed in this product. Bought in November 2012, but didn't actually open and use them until last week (so past the return date). The first time I used them, when I picked the food up I saw that my knife had sliced into the mat and little shards of plastic lined the many slice marks.
Of course, I don't want to use them for any of my food now. This is the first item I've ever bought that I haven't been super-pleased with. So, think twice.
