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.

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

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 !!!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

This was my first purchase from Overstock. This board is extremely heavy. Very well made and well finished. Top row of wood pieces is a fraction shorter, front to back, than the rest, which may account for the lower price. The cutting surface is not affected in any way, nor is the quality. The surface is completely level on both cutting surfaces, board is totally square at the corners. All I could add to this item would be finger slots at the sides, something I'll be adding with my friend's router! You will have to oil it with food-grade mineral oil. This is available in the laxative section of any pharmacy, oddly enough. No, the oil WILL NOT transfer to your food... I feel I got a tremendous bargain on this item, as I have researched comparable items and found the prices to be at least $$-$$ bucks higher. I am especially happy to see it was made in America, about 500 miles away from me! BUY THIS!

I live alone and have a rather small kitchen. This cutting board takes up a lot of my counter top space along with a toaster, tea maker, etc... I have been using this board for a month now and it seems like an excellent addition to my kitchen. I have been very pleased with it so far. Seems to be soft on the blades of my knives but haven't noticed the knives carving into the wood. The other reviews are accurate, it is very heavy. I also bought some food grade mineral oil and beeswax to condition it prior to first using and for every couple of months thereafter. I can easily recommend this product for anyone that is looking for a heavy duty, long lasting chopping block.

I saw these on an online auction website and a major selling website for almost double the price at Overstock. They were the same manufacturer so I bought them from Overstock. They are well made and look really nice. I did coat them with an vegetable which really made the grain show beautifully. I wanted these for summer use outside to serve food or vegetables on and for that they are perfect. I am happy with the purchase.
