Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by What's not to love? I do not understand the negative reviews on this product. If you like the BD comfort mats, you'll like this rug too. If the print/graphic is not for you, then don't order it. If you like the graphic, you'll love the mat. It's that simple. I received the large rug for Christmas. I use it in front of my sink and I absolutely love it. The graphic is exactly what I was looking for given I lean a tad to the contemporary side. My mother ordered herself the French Bistro comfort mat. Both were very similar in feel to the feet, no noticeable lingering odor out of the box, etc. December 26, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too many writers & it smells bad Well, I kinda liked it, but my husband is a writer and he said that it reminded him of work - too stressful. I tried to give it to my mom, who has an all black kitchen, but she said that it reminded her of typing "back in the day", which was not pleasant, apparently. Sigh... and I don't want the French menu one because I will want to order food off of it! The main problem with it though, is that it does smell like chemicals, and I eventually couldn't have it in the house. I thought about using it for a doormat, but it's really too expensive for that. I will be returning this item. I wish I could find an attractive kitchen mat... October 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too New, They Need To Get The Kinks Out I wanted to love this mat. I have the French Menu comfort mats in my kitchen and loooove them. So when I saw this NEW comfort mat in the typewriter format, I just had to have it for our office. However, it didn't look good. I had Ballard send me a replacement and although they were quick in mailing out another mat out, the second one looked just as poor as the first. If you zoom in to the picture (which I should have paid closer attention to before I ordered it), you can see by the "tabulator" key and the "*" key, it appears as if the ink ran there. Well, that's exactly how they come. It looks like a major production error as this is the only spot the die/ink appears to run across the mat. It looks terrible and I think it looks worse in person that it even shows in the picture. My menu mats (and I've had 4 over the years) never looked like this. Not sure if it's the same company producing these mats or not. If it is, I hope this is just an production error that will get resolved with time. I will try to purchase this again maybe in 6 months or a year from now when hopefully the problem has been fixed and the initial kinks have been resolved. Until then, this mat is poorly fabricated and does not live up to the Ballard quality. September 5, 2013
