The perfect cutting board. Large, stable and fast. The end grain maple provides a nice cutting platform. Great for cutting veggies, and general prep work. Be advised you need to condition the board, with food grade vegetable oil. It takes about two weeks of daily treatment for the board to become completely smooth, and wipe up easily after use.

I love my new cutting board. It is larger than my old one and the surface is much smoother. I keep it oiled with food grade mineral oil so the wood won't dry out. I'm sure once the oils really soak in good I won't have to keep doing that as often. You won't be disappointed in your purchase on this product!

I have had this for several months, now, and I followed the manufacturer's recommendation that it be rubbed with food-grade oil repeatedly. It is a wonderful chopping board. I waited until I felt the wood had been thoroughly saturated with the oil, in fact, I used up 8 oz. before using the board for anything wet, such as tomatoes, or for cutting meat and poultry. Now, I do use it for those things, but I always rub off anything left on the board with salt and a little oil. I used to have a marble block, and used it for everything, but it dulled my knives, and finally broke in half. I use this for piecrust, and don't miss my old marble one. Plus, it won't break...I expect to have it for a long, long time.

I do like this cutting board. The size is perfect for my countertop and I use it every day. It makes a great "cooking coaster" because I have marble counters - for the things I don't want sitting on the counter while I'm cooking, like vinegar or wine, this is perfect. I don't cut alot on this because cutting food on wood surfaces kind of grosses me out in general, so i have a plexi for that. It's a bit rough, especially around the edges, and requires the usual mineral oil maintenance from time to time. Overall, pretty pleased with this one.

I had done a lot of research on cutting boards. Styles, grain orientation, woods versus plastics, and on and on. I pulled the trigger on ordering one of these massive block style end grain cutting boards and would say ultimately it was a bad choice for a number of reasons: 1. Price: I purchased 4 other boards to replace this when I sent it back. ALL 4 NEW boards cost what this 1 board is 2. Practicality: This thing is huge and heavy. It is not practical at all in a kitchen sink. My GF could hardly lift it, let alone get it scrubbed down in the sink and back onto the counter top. 3. Food Safety: What I concluded was that I should really own 3-4 boards. 1-2 wood boards for veggy/fruit/ prep chopping and such, and 2 plastic boards for meat / fish. The plastic boards are commercially accepted as "safer" and I would agree if from only one perspective throw them in the dishwasher. While there are some wood boards that say dishwasher safe, they are full of it. A dishwasher will completely strip a wood board of its oils and coating, drying it out and guaranteeing cracking and fading in short time. So ultimately I ended up with 4 OXO Good Grips boards. There is a style they sell that is flat on one side and has a juice trap on the other and they intelligently put the feet attached on the end pieces so if you flip the board to either side you have some grip to your counter surface. They also make them in 2 or 3 different colors so that you can note a color for a food product.. My black one is for beef and chicken and such, red one for fish.. Then 2 bamboo ones for veggies and such. ALL 4 of these boards put together and shipped cost what this one end grain board cost. Mind you, I am using all Shun and Global knives and can tell you too that the end grain is not something worth it in terms of the effect on the blade. Get a good ceramic sharpener and keep the blade straight and have them professionally sharpened once or twice a year and all will be happy with your fancy knives without having to use a 2 ton slab of craziness :-)

25 lbs of quality and with hand groves makes for easy lifting. I never expected the fine quality of the two boards I purchased. Site does not specify manufacturer, "Catskill Craftsmen, Inc", so I had no way of knowing both boards came from same place until I opened the boxes. I also purchased the reversible end grain 16"x12". I have shun knives and must use quality end grain wood when cutting or chopping. Hard to believe after being aggressive chopping garlic and slicing foods there was not a mark on either board! Purchased mineral oil (as per co.'s instructions) and prepared boards. Not a big deal at all preping boards upon arrival. Easy cleaning with cloth and oiling as part of maintenance Cannot state product's life span, but based upon other reviews, if you take care of board (oiling), it should last for years. Order board and go buy mineral oil while you wait your board's arrival. Order arrived without any tracking/shipping notice.

This board is my everyday cutting board. Reversible board (birch) does have a rougher surface then the super slab, however, thus far it does not seem to impede the quality. I never expected the quality of the two boards I purchased. Site does not specify manufacturer, "Catskill Craftsmen, Inc", so I had no way of knowing both boards came from same place until I opened the boxes. I also purchased the 25 lb super slab end grain 20"x20". I use shun knives and must use quality end grain wood when cutting or chopping. Hard to believe after being aggressive chopping garlic and slicing foods there was not a mark on either board! Purchased mineral oil (as per co.'s instructions) and prepared boards. Not a big deal at all preping/seasoning boards upon arrival. Easy cleaning with cloth and oiling as part of maintenance. Order board and go buy mineral oil while you await your board's arrival. Order arrived without any tracking/shipping notice. (SURPRISE, WE ARE HERE!!)

This board / block looks great on my counter -- its heavy wouldn't move it around a lot plus its reversible -- very well made the real thing - still had shop dust on it when it arrived .. bought and treated it with food grade mineral oil -- this board is worth the price I paid.. I bought a Bobby Flay cutting board from Kohl's - it cracked in 2 months from normal use -- didn't even put it in the dishwasher -- junk no comparison to this high quality product !!!

The 3 piece Bamboo cutting boards have been a wonderful addition to our home kitchen, used by two chefs! We have enjoyed how clean Bamboo cutting boards look and feel as well as offering a safer cutting surface for all food types. My order was a gift and arrived in plenty of time and very well priced! Because of the price, quality, and shipping perks on Overstock.com, I will continue to go most of my shopping through here. Regards, emma
Cutting boards come in many different shapes and sizes. A cutting board can be made of several different materials including glass, wood and plastic. Each type of cutting board offers different advantages and challenges in their care and maintenance. Maintaining Your Cutting Board: Wood. Wooden cutting boards are perfect for vegetables, but meat should be cut on a plastic board. The reason for this is that the bacteria from raw meat are very difficult to sanitize from the scratches in a wooden board. Read More
