It is an excellent size, 450mm x 600mm, and it is 3mm thick.
One side is a marked grid of centimetre squares, 42 x 57, and the other side is blank.
I have purchased several cutting mats over the past few years and this is comparable in quality to the best of them, I use them primarily in my shed and actually screw them to my worktops to provide protection and additional grip.
This item cost just £5.99 delivered which is excellent value considering its size.
UPDATE: I have now purchased two of these mats in total, both from the MarketPlace Seller 'Babz Media'; they were both £5.99 delivered, and arrived in just a few days via recorded delivery. Superb value and service!
I used my old one as a writing/cutting mat to protect my desk from scratches, so it was important that the new one would sit flat enough to do the same (plus cutting anything on a warped mat is a real pain). So when it arrived I was disappointed to find that it was all bent out of shape due to the poor packing that was used to ship it in. Fortunately after using a hot hairdryer and some really heavy books I was able to get it to lie flat, however the plastic used for this cutting mat is really soft and as a result there are several large indentations that wont flatten out (the worst one is from the cardboard packaging that was folded under the mat and has created a sizable bump across the right hand side of the mat).
To be honest if you're looking for a cutting mat that is durable and will withstand a lot of use I wouldn't recommend this one as there is no way it will last (soft plastic and a sharp craft knife don't mix).
I would recommend spending a little more money and get a 'West Design Cutting Mat' as it's made from much tougher plastic and it'll last for years (provided you don't put a really hot cup of tea on it, like I did).
The boards have a grid marked out on one side and these allow correct corner angles and cutting to certain sizes where needed. They do not last forever and will need replacement when heavily blade-marked. Although self-repairing in the sense that the cuts in the surface may not be too apparent, if you often cut along a line, the cuts will deepen and widen and, at some point, the blade may skip or jump, a potentially dangerous prospect.
You will need a good 'straight-edge' and a sharp knife for best results.
A lot less expensive now than once they were, there is now no excuse to hold onto one way beyond its usefulness and safety.
It will protect your furniture, carpet and whatever else if you do any cutting with a sharp blade.
