UPDATE: I found that if I place a recently (still hot) square of fabric onto this mat, it sort-of buckles a little. I was alarmed at first, but after the mat cooled down, it returned to it's original 'flatness'. I still love this mat.
I borrowed my mom's 12" rotating Olfa. I liked it, but needed something larger, as my quilt blocks were 12 3/4" sq. I was hoping to buy a 14" by Olfa, but they don't make it that size (the 17" mat was too large for me). I stumbled onto this mat thru someone else's review on another product. The price was right, so I thought I'd give it a try.
I'm so glad I did.
It's sturdy, well made, and feels made of quality materials. It's one piece, so it doesn't separate like the Olfa. The underside has a rubbery-foam like material attached that keeps the mat skid-free. The top part of the mat moves around easily, but deliberately, so it doesn't just start spinning as you cut.
I'd be at a loss for finding a way to improve this product.
