I use those mats. They work great, and they are cheap enough to just replace when they get really worn.

I, too, have the double blade and find it a pain in the patootie. The herbs get caught between the blades and ... well it is more trouble than it is worth. Mostly I use my trusty big old knife, but sometimes when I'm doing basil or chives, I'll use scizzors.
