  • Cork material was an excellent choice for these placemats, I think, but the material does play a role in the price of the placemats, which is higher than many other Christmas placemats that one might come across

      The Benson Mills Christmas Cork Placemats come four to a package for fourteen dollars and ninety-nine cents. They are intended to be placed on television dinner trays or tables and protect the surface of the trays and tables from food or liquid. They do a good job of that too because the material is thick enough to prevent say gravy or a spilled drink from passing through and reaching the surface of the tray or table. The cork material makes these placemats impermeable. Thus, they effectively serve the purpose that they were intended for. If something does drop off of one’s plate or eating utensil, or if a glass or cup is wet and leaves a mark on the placemats, all one has to do is take a paper towel or a kitchen wash rag and wipe off the surface of the placemat with water. They can be easily cleaned this way and they can

      be cleaned while still on the television tray or table too since the material won’t allow any water to pass through, thus making the cleaning of these placemats easy and fast. Cork material was an excellent choice for these placemats, I think, but the material does play a role in the price of the placemats, which is higher than many other Christmas placemats that one might come across. They’re effectiveness though is apparent, so the price is justifiable, I think.

      Not only are these Christmas placemats good for protecting eating surfaces, but they are also attractive to look at while eating. On the left and right ends of the placements, there’s a striped pattern that consists of tan, green and red. In the center rests a full Christmas tree complete with various ornament decorations, including a star on the top. There are presents underneath and the artworks sits against a dark red background. The placemats are ...


      • reasonably nice, although had the artwork been more lifelike, I probably would have found the placemats to be more eye-catching. The colors on the Christmas placemats are very appropriate for the Christmas season and go real well with say a red or green tablecloth. After the Christmas season passes, storing these placemats can be a little more of a challenge than flexible placemats that can be folded over and being made out of cork means that they actually have some weight to them as opposed to the cloth placemats, so packing them away in a box ends up taking more space and makes the box heavier than cloth placemats. It’s not a big issue though, and worth it too, considering how these cork placemats do a superb job of protecting my Christmas tablecloths from spills and stains. They are indeed very dependable, in addition to being easy on the eyes.

        The Benson Mills Christmas Cork Placemats

        will protect the surfaces of tables and tablecloths from accidental spills or food droppings. They are sixteen by twelve inches and if something does fall onto the surface of one of these placemats, it won’t soak through and cause a mess underneath. Plus, the placemat will be easy to clean afterward. They’re firm and a bit heavier than the standard cloth placemat. The Christmas colors and artwork make these seasonal placemats a nice addition to any table decorated for the Christmas holiday. They are a bit pricey, but that’s because they are made from a material that’s durable, so these placemats should last a person for many, many years, and they are impermeable, so as long as something falls onto the placemat, the table surface or tablecloth will be completely protected. I’m very satisfied with these Christmas placemats and I feel that a “10″ rating is the right score to give the Benson Mills Christmas Cork Placemats.
