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.

Great value! This board is larger and priced lower than the competitor. I've replaced all of my split and warpped cutting boards. Maintain the cutting board with food grade mineral oil and this board will last your life time. I leave it out on my counter all the time and is a nice complement to the kitchen.

Bought this cutting board for y small camper and used it to mount over the stove, which we don't use much. The quality and durability is so good, I am ordering another for my home. Provides ample space for preparation of mnay foods, not only pie's. The engraved ruller in metric and english measurements is also very convenient.

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

These were purchased for my church's luncheon for the homeless. They were used by a bunch of different people chopping up all sorts of food. The boards performed exceptionally well. They're very washable so easy to keep clean and sanitary. And they are strong but not heavyweight.

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 !!!

Cutting board was as advertised. Is very heavy, but great for food preparation.

As you'll hear from the other reviewers of this product, this is the end all of cutting boards. I can almost guarantee that this cutting board is larger than you expect, even if you read the dimensions and picture it in your head it's still going to seem huge when you first open it up. The board is 18x18x3 and must weight around 30 lbs. Not the kind of cutting board you want to have to pull out of the cupboard all the time and put back, but the finger grooves and manageable weight definitely make it possible if that's what you want to do. The board is designed beautifully and comes pre-oiled and plastic wrapped. Like someone else said in their review, this can definitely become a family heirloom...if you take care of it correctly. Do yourself a favor and get some food grade mineral oil and read up on how to properly clean and maintain a cutting board, and this board will probably outlive you.

I watch a lot of food network and noticed that the cooks always have a big wooden cutting board. I wanted one so the first place I looked was overstock. This board is beautiful and I love using it. Very heavy so the free shipping was valuable. I plan to buy several more as gifts.

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.

This cutting board is a great addition to my kitchen. After a couple weeks the board has been fantastic. It came conditioned from the factory, but I chose to apply a light coat of food-grade mineral oil, which enhanced the grain and colors of the board. I am very happy with the style, durability and functionality of this cutting board. Because of it's large size and weight, instead of washing in the sink I've been giving it a quick wipe off after use, which is all it needs for the veges, fruits and nuts I've been cutting. I am very happy with it and highly recommend this cutting board.

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!!)

I did a lot of research to make sure I ordered a board that would withstand constant use and not hurt the knives that were being used on it. This was a gift for my son and daughter-in-law. My son is a very good cook and prepares a lot of specialty foods. They are very happy with this board and said it is an excellent choice. I would highly recommend.

Gorgeous thick American Made cutting board. It had a small (tiny) nick on the edge, thus the 4 stars for appearance...but not a real problem. Too heavy to return for that little ding. Love it.

When I first opened the box and looked at my new cutting block, I was amazed at how well constructed and absolutely beautiful this piece was. Knowing that I needed to season the board prior to use, I purchased some food grade mineral oil, and coated the board several times until it was properly seasoned. I was stunned at how amazing this block looked after being seasoned! The colors are rich, the contrast of the block pattern of the bamboo is beautiful, and oh yes; it's a great cutting surface. I highly recommend this block; you won't be disappointed.

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 :-)

my husband has wanted a cutting board like the chefs on the Food Network use forever. he says this one is even better because it fits on a standard counter it is not so heavy that you cant move it around and it holds up under the stress he puts it through. The price was fantastic, usually you get what your pay for but this time you get way more than you pay for

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!

The cutting board arrived quickly and is extremely heavy and well made. It definitely makes a statement in my kitchen and looks just like the picture. I recommend getting a couple of bottles of food grade mineral oil (directions on the bottle) to maintain your chopping block before using it and thereafter. All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase and thoroughly enjoy using it; it's the perfect size!

After going through many cutting boards over the years I wanted one that would last and be good to my knives - this chopping block is perfect. I oil it with food grade mineral oil according to the instructions on the Michigan Maple Block website. The 15" size is just right, I store it on edge at the back of my counter top.
A chopping board is one of the most basic pieces of equipment in the kitchen. Chopping boards, also known as cutting boards and butcher blocks, protect your countertops from scratches and your knives from excessive dulling. Cutting boards are also much more sanitary than chopping your ingredients on the countertop or a paper plate or napkin. Used properly, a chopping board can also be a tremendous help in preparing your meals.
