I noticed on the cake show on we tv Cristopher Garrens was using on of those gree mats they use for sewing. I think it is for cutting material. I was looking at them at Michaels. It says they are self healing but the smell from the mat had a really strong chemical smell. Do any of you use these? I was hesitant to buy one because of the smell.

I looked at self healing cutting mats at JoAnn. Some brands had a notice on them that they were not to be used for food--and yes, they do have an awful odor.

I guess if you were making something that you were sure wouldn't be eaten, it wouldn't be a problem, but I definitely wouldn't use one for consumables.
