Like Standing on Marshmallows


The company, WellnessMats was founded in 1996 by Daniel Bouzide and has become the mat–of–choice for the Department of Homeland Security and TSA. They are popular in the healthcare field, beauty salons, hotels, professional kitchens, and in numerous retail locations across the country. In 2010 WellnessMats launched a line of consume–friendly mats to provide the same comfort and relief to people in their homes, offices, and more. And that’s where KosherEye comes in. Just as many other home cooks, we spend countless hours standing on our feet and preparing meals in our kitchens. After a long busy day this is wearing, especially when planning to entertain,or preparing for Shabbos and holidays. Oh, our aching feet!

We were delighted to discover our new therapeutic kitchen friend, WellnessMats. Although the company roots are industrial, their newest mats are the same quality, have the same attributes and the same warranty, as the original industrial mats, and are intended for home cooks, chefs, crafters, etc. WellnessMats understandably has many longtime  fans in the professional culinary world. These anti–fatigue floor mats provide both comfort and support. They are even high–heel friendly – but we ask, who wears high heels while cooking????

We found WellnessMats to feel like cushy marshmallows – soft, resilient, forgiving, “a pillow for the feet”. What a pleasure to stand on these mats while cooking and washing dishes. Here’s why…The company explains that the mats are made with 100% polyurethane – (Advanced Polyurethane Technology) to ensure maximum comfort, performance, and longevity. They are ¾” thick, have a 7–year warranty, one piece construction, beveled edges, are heat resistant, are anti–microbial and PVC free. All Wellness Mats are 100% made in the USA.

We think that a WellnessMat would make a welcome gift for Mother’s Day! After all, most moms and grandmoms need life made easier, more comforting, with less physical fatigue, especially in the kitchen.
