Not exactly cookware but definitely for kitchen use... I've seen gelmats (www.gelmats.com) advertised lately. I think I saw one recently as well in a store or other place. I have some rugs in my kitchen by the sink and stove. They seem to always be dirty and sliding around. I have dogs so that's part of the sliding problem. I'm intrigued by these Gel Mats. Does anyone have experience with them where they could recommend them or not. Also, do you know how they would hold up around animals and is it difficult or easy to keep them clean? Thanks.
