What is it?
If you love to go barefoot at home but can't stand the pain that comes from walking on hard flooring all day — especially if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen — Amazon has the "game changer" you never knew you needed: the top-selling KitchenClouds Cushioned Anti-Fatigue Kitchen Mat. It transforms your kitchen floor into a marshmallowy surface that can relieve pressure and pain in your feet, muscles and joints — and it's currently nearly 60% off (as low as $16). Snag it before your next cooking spree — your tootsies (and wallet!) will thank you.
Why is it a good deal?
If you enjoy cooking up a storm, having a soft landing pad for your feet is essential — and this one has thousands of perfect ratings to back it up. It often goes on sale for around $18, but we haven't seen it lower than its current price all year; and with cooking and baking season just around the corner, we suggest snapping it up while it's deeply discounted.
Why do I need this?
The KitchenClouds Cushioned Anti-Fatigue Kitchen Mat is the savior your sore dogs have been barking for, but maybe you never knew such a magical thing existed. Even if you wear slippers at home, cushioned anti-fatigue mats double down on protection for anyone who's on their feet a lot in the kitchen. This gem is perfect for anyone with arthritis, fibromyalgia, herniated discs, tendonitis, foot issues or any kind of stress-induced chronic pain issue.
It has a diamond-shaped design on the bottom, too, for traction and a beveled edge that prevents tripping, so accidents are off the table. This spongy mat doesn't just belong in the kitchen, either — at just $16, it's smart to order a few for the laundry room, garage, home office and any other high-performance areas in your home. They come in lengths ranging from 28 to 60 inches to accommodate all kinds of spaces, as well as seven colors.
What reviewers say
One of nearly 8,000 five-star fans on Amazon called the mat "better than insoles," and wrote: "I do a lot of meal prepping for the week on Sundays, so I am on my feet in the kitchen for eight to 10 hours a day some weekends, and around an hour each day during the week. I used to wear my gym shoes with cushioned support when I was cooking for long periods, but even then the resulting back pain was on another level. These mats are a complete game-changer ... I could stand on these mats for hours and still be comfortable."
Another happy customer wrote: "I received these a few days before Thanksgiving. My daughter-in-law has these in her kitchen, and when I stepped on one I said, “Ooooo!” and ordered them that day. I’m so happy to have them; my feet don’t hurt, my back doesn’t hurt and I’m way less tired after spending hours in the kitchen."
"I am so happy I bought this. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking. My feet get sore easily after working in retail for 15 years wearing awful shoes. Any comfort I can get at home doing something I love is well worth the investment. Super cushiony. I ordered a different brand and they did not come close to this one!" raved another shopper.
"It’s like walking on a cloud," gushed a final fan. "They make cooking and cleaning up so much better because there’s no strain on your feet. They are plastic coated, so all you have to do to clean them is vacuum and/or wipe them down with an all-purpose cleaner. That was a huge plus for me, because keeping kitchen mats clean is my personal nightmare. ... I wish they came in more neutral colors, but at the end of the day, they’re so comfortable I’d probably buy them in hot pink if that was all they came in. Totally worth buying again."
