From The Manufacturer

The Tortuga XXL Silicone Dish Mat - 23" x 18" Designed By Customer Feedback. We designed the Tortuga XXL Slicone dish mat based on customer feedback with functionallity at the core. At 23" the mat is the perfect depth to fit next to your sink and fill the entire counter depth (standard counters are 24" deep). At 18" wide, the dish mat can hold an extra large dish rack sideways and you will still have room for pots and pans! You will have enough room for all your dishes in one go. You don't have to build a tower of dishes that could fall at any moment. The soft silicone ridges are perfectly spaced to allow easy cleaning, air movement and stability for your delicate stemware. Exclusive Increased Side Wall Height Extra Thick and Tall Sidewall - The sidewall is taller than the internal ridges creating a barrier against water escaping. This allows you to pile on the wet dishes with reckless abandon! Or use it as a pet dish mat to contain all of the mess from Fido. The increased side wall height is exclusive to Tortuga Home Goods' XXL mat. Don't underestimate the importance of this feature, it's the difference between water being contained or wet counters! About Us - An American Small Family Business. Hi, I'm Christa (the one in the back!) We are an American owned small family business with a simple premise, things should do their intended job well. Often, I would buy something, use it and think, "if they had only done this... it would be perfect". Then I would realize there is no way a product designer overlooked the design flaw; it's companies trying to save a few cents, puttting profit over function. We put function first, our goal is to create high quality products that are innovative & functional and providing you with an exceptional customer experience. Thank You, Christa Elegant and Multifunctional - You'll Wonder How You Lived Without It. Matches Any Decor With three stylish colors to choose from the elegant and sleek design will match any decor. If it's in a modern kitchen or a traditional farmhouse, the Tortuga Dish Mat looks right at home. In life, it's often the simple things that make the biggest difference. Not having to worry about moisture damaging your expensive counters alone is worth the purchase. But we know once you have this in your home, you will truly wonder how you lived without it. Heat Resistant up to 450 degrees Use it on the table at Christmas or Thanksgiving to put your hot dishes on. Use it for canning or homebrewing to put your hot containers on. Perfect for the RV or Boat. With limited space it's great to have a product that serves more than one purpose. Who doesn't like Multi-Purpose?! Stay Clean Silicone Scrubby Tortuga Home Goods is the only dish mat that comes with a silicone scrubby sponge for both cleaning dishes, as well as the mat itself. No more smelly sponges! The non-porous silicone dries quickly and won't harbor bacteria. Enviromentally friendly, will last for years! When the sponge is dry it doubles as a lint remover. The perfect sponge to clean your dish mat too.
