There are two discussions on the board about this already. If you search for "the and mat" you should find them. I would link it, but it is hard to do on my iPad.

I have one and love it. I used it on the wedding cake I made and the grapevine cake. I feel it makes using fondant easier, but there people who have not had the same experience as me. Sweetwise does have two excellent you tube videos using and caring for the mat that I think helps a lot.

Agreed. It was extremely difficult to keep the top vinyl flat without causing creases in my fondant. Also, it is hard to wash without making wrinkles in the vinyl, and even after drying flat and rolling back up, it's all creased now. I'm going to stick with my old ways.
