How we tested
We love the ingenious rubber feet covering the underside of our favorite plastic cutting board, the Architec Gripper Nonslip Cutting Board. Now, with the introduction of the Architec Gripper Smart Mat ($9.99), we can use this grippy surface under any cutting board, mixing bowl, or appliance. This 20-by-15-inch silicone mat (which can be cut to fit) tightly grabs a surface with its multitude of skidproof? disks—and does so more securely and durably than our usual trick of using a piece of shelf liner.
