    Bought as extras to go with other slate placemats. They looked really good value - I thought slate was slate, what could go wrong! Used once and several of the rubber 'feet' fell off straightaway, then as plates were placed on them bits of the slate started to break away, a large chunk off one but more worryingly lots of small shards off all the others. I don't like the fact I have the even give these one star but that was as low as it would let me go.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery to store was great, was there within a few hours.

              These are practical and good looking table mats which can double up as serving plates (eg cheese, cold meats etc). Good value.

                These look both stylish and functional on my dining room table.
                Slight chipping of the edges of some mats at first, but that doesn't spoil the appearance at all - the edges are rough to start with.
                Good solid mats - not afraid to put heavy hot plates on them.
                Excellent value.

                    4 of 8 broken on initial delivery; 1 broken of replacement 4; 1 since broken, so only 6 unbroken after a few days. Fear they will not last long, even with only occasional outdoor eating use. Very poor quality. They are very attractive and I will be researching better quality slate mats.

                        Match the coasters I got recently. Initial thought was they were a bit thin but actually they do the job perfectly.

                                    Product looks great, however a bit crumbly when first taken out of the packet (however they are natural slate so expected). Very good value for money, have recommended to friends.

                                                These placemats are a bargain. I'd looked in quite a few places for plain slate mats and these were far, far less expensive than any others I found for precisely the same product (slate experts will probably disagree but, to me, a piece of slate is a piece of slate!)

                                                The only thing I would say is that a fair number of chips came off when I first unpackaged them. Nothing major - just small pieces from the edges. Also, I found that mine benefited enormously from oiling, just with standard vegetable oil, to give them a bit of lustre & protect them a little.

                                                After looking at several more expensive sets of slate mats (often overpriced), these were recommended by my sister in law. For the first couple of weeks of use some slate does chip and flake off in tiny pieces which can be very annoying. However, this is a budget product so what did I expect? I've given them a good scrub which has helped. Thumbs up to Dunelm for once again providing an affordable version of something which is usually more expensive. And if my mother in law asks, they came from a designer Welsh slate company! Ha ha only joking Dunelm. Would recommend.

                                                I wouldn`t buy online from Dunelm again.

                                                      The place-mats were very poorly packed and although they were replaced after contacting Dunelm the replacement place-mats were also badly chipped as a result of not being packed at all. [...]

                                                        Rubber feet on the bottom are great because they stop it scratching any tablewear. Clean cut on the underside, but the top has a rustic non-perfect edge. Using as a plate instead of a placemate. Great.

                                                          Hi,

                                                          Do the slate placemats match the slate coasters? I am looking to buy the complete set.

                                                          Thanks,
