Fabio Viviani Comfort Mats for the Kitchen Review-Giveaway

comfort mats

This time of the year with all the holidays coming up, I am going to be doing a lot of cooking and baking. We celebrate Chanukah, Christmas, and Thanksgiving, which are all very big “foodie” holidays! Thankfully, renowned chef, Fabio Viviani, has come out with a great product that I can use in my kitchen called the Fabio Viviani Comfort Mats.comfort mats

Top Chef” alum, restaurateur, and personality Fabio Viviani’s talent is perhaps only outmatched by his infectious energy.  However, after opening his newest restaurant in Chicago, spending long hours in the test kitchen and on set,  Fabio found that his fervor for food was taking a toll on his feet and back.  A big toll.  Seeking solace, Fabio took matters into his own…feet…and designed his own solution:  his first-ever product line of Comfort Mats by Smart Step Home.image001

He partnered with Smart Step Home, the anti-fatigue mat experts, and designed this exclusive line of Comfort Mats, with health, comfort, and Italian style in mind. These mats are meant to be stepped on while doing your routine cooking and baking. They are meant to allow you to stay in the same place, without getting the aches and pains that can be associated with spending hours in the kitchen.

The Mats’ earth tones are inspired by the Italian landscape he calls home and the Toscana and Mercato designs are inspired from the cutlery used in his highly acclaimed restaurant, Siena Tavern (the go-to lunch joint for Chicagoan urban professionals).  “Feet down” the best gift you can give to a food-lover’s aching feet (and parent, kid + pet approved).

The Fabio Viviani anti-fatigue comfort mats is a great choice for those looking for comfort when they cook. They are absolutely beautiful and add a true statement to your kitchen. They also are unbelievably plush; trust me when I say, you will want to just stand on this mat for hours! My feet just sink in when I stand on it. The durability of the mat is second to none, and you will love to use this comfort mat when you are preparing all your regular meals, as well as those long holiday meals.

If you are looking to replace your “regular” kitchen mat, the Fabio Viviani Comfort Mats are an excellent choice for comfort, style, and design. The Mats retail for $99.99 and are available for purchase online at SmartStepHome.com and backed with a 7 year warranty. Comfort Mats are 100% made in the USA.comfort mats
