I wanted to get away from using plastic and/or glass cutting boards and wanted a sustainable wood product. This set of boards is excellent and I use them almost every day. They are easy to clean and nice looking on my counter top. I've heard that bamboo dulls knives but I don't mind a little extra sharpening for the benefits of these boards.

Now, there are two parts to this review. The actual cutting board, and the delivery. I bought this as a birthday gift. The board itself is beautiful. It was well packaged, comes with the nice string, and looks very elegant. It is a good thickness, and the patterning of the end grain was as good as I had hoped for. It was not finished (hadn't been coated in a finishing oil) , but I assume that was to be expected. After the person got it, they coated it with several coats of mineral oil, and it became even more beautiful. The color deepens a lot, as well as the contrast in the pattern. However, the shipping time was not good. I ordered second day air on a Monday, and received the product the next Monday (there were no holidays), after six days. This was very inconvenient, and the reason this didn't get 5 stars. because after all, shipping time is not completely related to the actual board. But it was frustrating that the delivery took such a long time, after paying ** dollars for it to come in "two to three days". But other than that, great product.

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.

My daughters and I bought this for my husband/their daddy as an early Father's Day gift. He has been laid off and been doing most of the cooking and wanted an end grain board. He did some research on the web and learned end grain is great. I thought I would check out what the O had. This was my first purchse and will not be the last. Gave the board to him as soon as it came and does he love it! He put it on our kitchen island and really likes the thickness of the board. It raises your work surface height and he doesn't worry about cutting through it. Has plenty of work area and cleans up easy. It weighs @ 27#, so he knows he can't break it. Earlier bought a thin wood board from a big box store and it is now in the garage. He has no complaints about it and neither do I. This size is great as is the quality.

We've used one of these pieces every day since we received them. Having a new laminated countertop, we needed to buy a good cutting board set that would hold up and we always keep the smallest one on the counter for easy access. The wood grain in these is very pretty and smooth, easy to clean and matches our kitchen well. These would also make a nice gift for someone. Would definitely buy these again.

This cutting board is what it's represented to be. It's big and sturdy and actually very pretty. I didn't realize how puny and limited my old one was until I got this. It's so roomy. You can chop up lots of vegetables and arrange them in little piles waiting their turns to be used. It is not TOO heavy. It's just sturdy. I'm not particularly strong or musclebound and have no trouble moving it around. I really love Overstock.com. Especially on free shipping days!

I'm blown away by both the product and the service I got from overstock. This product arrived in 5 days from the US to England, no issues with customs, no delays, no surprise charges. Tracking information was provided end to end, so i knew it was on its way and exactly when it would arrive. The product itself is exactly as described and amazing quality. I'll be using overstock again, no doubt.

This beautiful block was a long-overdue replacement for an edge-grain block that was worn to pieces. Despite it's substantial size and weight, the block slides around on my counter. I solved the problem by putting a piece of that non-slip liner stuff underneath. I like that it's hefty enough that I can stand it on its side to dry after I wash it. As other commenters have noted, it drinks up a lot of oil. After a few weeks of use, I find it still needs another coat just about every day. I assume in time that won't be the case.
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
