I like Kyocera cutting mats. They are light in weight and easy to use. Some cutting boards are big and heavy for me; whereas, Kyocera cutting mats are so light and easy for me to handle, wash, and wipe. Some other cutting mats are too soft and easy to break if you flex too much. However, Kyocera cutting mats are strong enough to be flexed many times and they do not break easily. I like the variety of bright colors, too. I have had three different colors so far, and I am going to order the rest soon after those ones I have get a little old.
