These are serviceable as cutting mats. Some arrived today in the “Kitchen Bundle” that was sold earlier, and I wasn’t able to easily cut through them or mar the underlying surface while doing so. So, hey, maybe that is something.
@guybrush01 Thanks. Do be aware though that EVA has alleged health effects (carcinogenic properties of some component materials), so maybe using this for direct food contact isn’t the best idea, especially anything acidic/basic enough to start breaking things down.
I’m only looking for something like this for its intended purpose (to line shelves).

I believe that applies to the foam products, like the spongy floor mats you can buy that lock together like jigsaw puzzles. I don’t think this is the same type of EVA product. Specs list it as 100% food contact safe… but then again, they might be stretching the truth there somewhat.
@blaineg i bought the silly things…
cause i figure it is easier to clean one of these than take the whole fucking shelve out every time i make a mess.
probably could have used something else for the same purpose…
but i never thought of it.
They have used a product they really don’t care about to shamelessly cross promote another site, and I respect that. I can even forgive trying to guilt me into organizing my over stuffed fridge which has hidden items for years. What I can’t get past… PASTELS?
I’d be careful with these in the fridge, the racks allow air circulation for a reason, you don’t want to block the circulation off causing temperature differences in your fridge. Same in your oven, you don’t want to cover the racks with foil.
