I absolutely love this product! If you have a sense of humour when it comes to your day to day objects then you’ll love this! It’s so random but who cares, definitely a talking point at any dinner party. I am delighted with this Ping Pong Mat and the best part is it really works! I need to buy another one as I clearly need to play ping pong whilst waiting for my dinner to cook. This is such a fun novelty item.
My main concern was would it withstand the heat I applied. I was half expecting the silicone to melt and it just be another novelty item that is great to look at but not fit for purpose. Not one bit, this mat takes heat of up to 230 degrees Celsius which is perfect for everyday use. The paddle itself is made from bamboo and let me tell you it is really strong. The handle is also very useful. It’s not supposed to be a chopping board but I have flipped it over and also used the paddle to cut up small items then used the handle to pick up the whole board and tip into my pan. Even toast! I butter my toast on and use it as a plate. The only downside is its size but if it was any bigger it wouldn’t be a ping pong bat so I can live with that. Initially I used the mat in the kitchen, then I used it to rest my straighteners on (if you do this check your temperature!) but now it’s sitting on my desk and I use it to put my tea on. I love it!
The packaging was very well done, easy to read and modern which reflected the product well. I liked the fact it was see through so you could see what you was getting. It wasn’t fussy, very sleek and to the point. The mat was secure in its packaging but at the same time wasn’t over packed. The literature was cleverly done and made me smile.
This product is fantastic and I would recommend to anyone looking for a pot rest/ heat mat. This is a definite 5 out of 5. I know it’s a simple item but I am going to enjoy its versatility and quirkiness. I’m sure it’s going to be a conversation starter.
