A beautiful accent for any home kitchen, this 15-inch square butcher block cutting board is as functional as it is fashionable. Crafted from durable maple, this board is NFS certified and features a rounded edge detail for comfort and usability....more
Beautiful block upon arrival. Used all of the butcher block as recommended in care instructions and the board still split with proper care. DO NOT BUY!!!! As the board split after 30 days, a replacement/refund was not available to me. Boo! Tear. Very dissatisfied.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes.
How is the quality of the product? Ok.
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes.
Cutting boards/chopping blocks can only be really judged by how they perform over the long run, so take this 2 week review with a large grain of salt. However, getting a end grain maple board from a very reputable manufacturer at this price is a very good start (end grain being the best to avoid messing up knife edges, and maple being a board with the right amount of hardness without the silica of bamboo or acacia). The board is as represented in the picture and specs, another good sign. At the 2 week mark after moderate use, no cracks or warping. I will update in a few months.
This chopping block came very light in color and as mentioned the dark spots really jumped out at you but after two weeks of daily oiling, I can't begin to tell you what a beautiful piece of assembled wood this item became. It's the first thing people notice in my kitchen now. Price is unbelievable.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? This block arrives dry and after two weeks of rubbing with oil, it is truly gorgeous
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent, however there were noticeable spots of very dark wood which was balanced out nicely after oiling
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Perfect but dont' remember if weight was listed, it's good and solid and will never fly off the countertop. Instructions were excellent covering things I never knew about block care.
This chopping block is as beautiful as it is functional. I have it prominently displayed on my counter top. It does need quite a bit of mineral oil before using. The wood tends to soak it up pretty fast at the beginning so be prepared. However, once it has been treated with the mineral oil it makes wiping it off after use much easier. This board is VERY heavy and definitely great quality. Very pleased with the purchase.

This deluxe end grain cutting board is their 15" square model. I am happy I got the square instead of the longer rectangular. Plenty of room, but less obtrusive when left out and easier to store on end.
You will need to be assiduous for the first week in putting mineral oil on it daily, and once a week thereafter, in order to keep it from drying out. End grain rather than side grain is the way to go if you can afford the $ diff. Height recommended and USA made by a good company, Michigan Maple Block.
