If you have one leg longer than the other and like to cook, this is the answer. The result of my friend’s surgery is that one leg is 1/2 inch longer than the other (yes, a tall gal to begin with and our friends are teasing her about being yet taller), and the kitchen mats really, really helps. My friend loves them so much. Not pretty, but who gives a poop if she can stand upright without listing to the side when she is doing a long cooking thing. Pay the bucks and take the hit for the good stuff.
