Even before I bought these, I was disappointed that there wasn't a board representing meat, but we were motivated to do better in our kitchen in combating cross-contamination, so I got this set anyway. The disappointment only deepened. The design is only on one side - the other side is stark white. The material is little better than cardboard -- I expected a sturdy, flexible plastic like a mylar -- this is like some kind of packing material plastic. Worst of all -- with each stroke of the knife, the design is scraped off, leaving a white mark. After a few uses, each board is criss-crossed with a web of white that looks horrible. They are cheaply made, and not worth .50 cents.
