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. The black mat, one of the more popular colors, is on sale for $12 (down from $20) when you apply the on-page coupon — that's 40% off, and the best price we've seen since 2021.

Why do I need this?

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 perfect for anyone with arthritis, fibromyalgia, herniated discs, tendonitis, foot issues or any kind of stress-induced chronic pain issue. 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 prevents tripping, reducing the risk of accidents. This spongy mat doesn't just belong in the kitchen, either — at just $12, it's smart to order a few for the laundry room, garage, home office and any other high-traffic areas where you tend to stand for long periods of time. They come in lengths ranging from 28 to 70 inches to accommodate all kinds of spaces, as well as seven colors.

Feet on the black kitchen mat
Thousands of Amazon shoppers thought this kitchen mat was so comfy, they gave it a perfect five-star rating. (Amazon)

What reviewers say

One of over 9,700 five-star fans on Amazon 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 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: "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," raved another shopper. "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!"

"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." (For more color options, check out this popular ComfiLife Anti-Fatigue Mat, which is also on sale, albeit still more expensive.)

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 or sweep/mop the mat, and it comes clean quick.
