This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

Have you ever stood on a hard kitchen floor and felt like your feet, legs, and back could use a break?  Anti-fatigue comfort mats from Fabio Viviani by Smart Step Home can really make a difference!

Chef, personality, restaurateur, and cookbook author, Fabio’s talent is perhaps only outmatched by his infectious energy.  But even Fabio found that after long days on the set, in his restaurants, or sharing his passion with his fans… his feet & back were tired.  Really tired.

Fabio Viviani is a celebrated chef & culinary personality. Smart Step Home is the proven leader in professional anti-fatigue flooring. Their combined philosophy is simple; together they are providing you with ‘The Absolute Best’ Comfort Mats.

Fabio Viviani Comfort Mats are a ‘must have’ for any location where you stand – the kitchen, the bath, wherever. Combining comfort, style & performance, our mats are made with proprietory SmartTech™ Polyurethane (STP) – one piece construction, and 3/4″ polyurethane. STP is the key to comfort, performance and longevity. That is why  they are ‘The Absolute Best’ in anti-fatigue mats.

Smart Step Home has been successfully addressing health & safety concerns in the workplace for over a decade with their superior anti-fatigue products. Fabio’s Comfort Mats allow them to share their combined expertise & design influence, providing comfort and support to consumers everywhere.

SmartTech™ Polyurethane (STP) Technology

The secret to their mats’ superior comfort and performance is what they call SmartTech Polyurethane Technology (STP).  This technology means these one-piece construction mats will never delaminate, never curl, and will remain buoyant.

You’ll appreciate that your mats are antimicrobial. You WILL see that our mats resist stains and abrasion. Thermosetting is the manufacturing process by which our special formulation of polyurethane bonds and permanently locks each and every mat fiber, creating a stronger and virtually indestructible substrate. STP ensures mats that provide comfort and longevity for years and years to come.

These mats are backed by a 7-year warranty!  This way, you know that you are making a quality purchase of a long-lasting product.

Made in the USA

Fabio takes pride in that his mats are 100% made in the USA!

With any anti-fatigue product from Smart Step Home, you get the best mat made, and you support your community, creating jobs while helping neighbors in the process!

 I was super excited when I received the smart step Comfort Mat on my doorstep. I have never had a high-quality kitchen mat before, so I immediately opened it up and placed it on front of my stove.  Before I even really had a chance to use it and test it out appropriately, my children could not get enough of the soft quality of the mat.  Taking turns bouncing on it, I let them have their fun before it was my turn – dinnertime!

I received the Mocha Mercato mat to best complement the style of our kitchen. Inspired by Fabio’s beloved Mercator Centrale, the central market of Florence, this mat celebrates food and ingredients with a playful cohesion of flatware and lyrical decorative accents.  This mat measures 32×20″, and covers just the right amount of space to offer relief while I am working on my feet.

This has quickly become one of my favorite items in my kitchen. Very sleek and trendy in design, durable to the touch,  and buoyant to the feet, this mat quickly and clearly lives up to its reputation and promises.

As I have had friends over for play dates or for dinner parties at our home, the Smart Step Comfort Mat is always noticed right away.

I love love love this mat! It is one of those things where I never really noticed how uncomfortable it was to cook until I actually used this mat to cook on. Now I find a huge difference if I remove the mat and try to cook without it. Why would I do this? Simply to test the difference….. And there is absolutely no comparison.

We do not wear shoes in our house, so this means standing on tile – which is often very cold.  This mat will keep your feet comfortable, and help with other aches associated with having to stand, especially on a hard floor.  You will love how this feels whether you are trying to cook dinner or washing a sink full of dishes.

The cost may initially look a little high, but it is definitely worth the cost when supporting a company that keeps the integrity of creating and executing a product completely within the United States, especially at a time in which outsourcing has become the norm. Kudos to you.  And knowing that you are getting a high-quality product, backed by a warranty, that will offer you years of comfort!
