I have a tropical theme in my kitchen, and new counter tops so these are a life saver. I am over protective of my new counter tops right now, and there are so cute that I leave them out all the time right now. Hot, cold, wet, it protects my counter tops from all of it, and they look like little slices of tropical fruit. They are thin so they are east to store and don't take up a lot of room in the drawer. (If I put them away). I like them a lot!
