kitchen floormatsWhile kitchen-shopping today I asked a professional chef his opinion about different floor surfaces. This is somethign I must do at least a thousand times before making a decision on anything. He mentioned something I have never heard of before - a black, roll out mat that he discovered a few years ago in a warehouse, used by workers who must be on their feet long periods of time and will do better on a mat than on concrete. "It's called a Cadillac mat," he said. "I don't remember where I bought it, but it wasn't kitchen supplies - it was for warehouses."
So I got on the internet and googled Cadillac warehouse. Sure 'nuf, up came the "cadillac" black rollout rubber cushion, I think it was a 2 x 6 or 2 x 8 foot product, and cost around $25 plus s/h/tax.
This chef swears by this product. I haven't picked out the floor, but I'll be ready with my mat.
Thought you would like to consider this. And wondered if anyone else has done anything creative with warehouse mats in their kitchens.
