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. The black mat, one of the more popular colors, is marked down to $13 (from $20) for Prime members when you apply the on-page coupon — that's close to as low as we've ever seen it. Several other colors are marked down for Prime members as well, though they cost a bit more.

The KitchenClouds 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. This gem is ideal for anyone with arthritis, fibromyalgia, herniated discs, tendonitis, foot issues or any stress-induced chronic pain. Sit at a desk all day and then deal with lower back pain when it's time to make dinner? Feel your joints whimper in distress while you prep your morning coffee? It can help with that too!

The mat has a diamond-shaped design on the bottom for traction and a beveled edge that helps prevent tripping, reducing the risk of accidents. This spongy mat doesn't just belong in the kitchen, either — order a few for the laundry room, garage, home office and any other areas where you tend to stand for long periods. They come in lengths ranging from 28 to 70 inches.

Amazon customers give this mat high scores when it comes to comfort, versatility and ease of cleaning.

One of over 10,000 five-star fans called the mat "better than insoles," adding: "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 ... 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."

"It's like walking on a cloud," gushed another satisfied shopper. "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."

A third described it as being "useful for other areas," explaining: "My poor elderly dog has arthritis, so standing still for long periods can be painful. I bought a couple of these ... to put next to his food table for him to be able to have some comfort while eating. They are so springy and comfortable that I wish I could line my whole house with them so we can all walk in comfort."

While the mats do have grippy backing, some reviewers said they still experienced slippage. "The only con for these mats is that they will slide on different types of floors," wrote one. "They don't slide on bathroom floors or the hardwood floors but do slide all over our kitchen flooring, which is ceramic tile. Not sure what the difference is, but to be safe we added non-slip padding under the ones in the kitchen." (Keep scrolling for one option.)

"I do wish it came in other patterns and colors," admitted a final fan, "but the comfort is great!"

This cushy mat is fully waterproof and designed to repel dirt and debris. It'll get dirty, of course, but just wipe it with a wet cloth.

For extra anti-slip reinforcement:

These area-rug essentials are triangle-shaped to fit corners, and they couldn't be easier to use. Just remove the double-sided adhesive covers, stick them onto your rugs and press them to the floor. Their main purpose might be preventing your rugs from sliding around, but they'll also keep those stubborn corners that like to curl up nice and flat!

"My rugs were flying all around from my wild dogs and kids," shared a grateful parent. "I can’t believe how well this product works. My 5x7 rugs stay perfectly in place without moving at all. I will definitely be buying more of these for other rugs."
