Received it promptly and it is a very nice heavy board. I used it a couple times and left it on the counter. The counter got wet at some point, when my young daughter must have spilled, the next morning it was warped and cracked. I know they should not get wet but i have had cutting boards just as nice take far more punishment than this.
I got the cutting board for my husband for Christmas and it came 2 or 3 days sooner than promised (which was Christmas eve). My husband liked the gift and uses it everyday. So I am really pleased with the cutting board and it is an execelent purchase and great price. I liked the fact that all juices go into a the tray around the board and not on my counters.
This cutting board arrived with a slightly warped shape. I had read about this problem from other's reviews. However, the price is right and the wood design is very attractive. It serves my purposes and I think it is just fine.
This is a thick cutting board, but it slides when in use, so it is pretty dangerous. I bought it for the look and I regret that, look around and purchase something less, unless you are using it for serving and not chopping.BTW not really refersable as one side slides even more that the other
Please tell us about the quality of the product. OK
This is a very good quality birch board at a very good price. For those who want a NICE board without spending a bunch, this board is the best I have seen. It's solid, attractive and the birch wood loses nothing to maple. I am a wood nut and don't find birch a step down from maple! Hardness is about the same and the grain is just as good. Seems like all the board prices jump up a bunch when maple is used. I can't see the justification in that?? It has a substantial thickness of 1 1/4" with just enough heft and stability not to warp or move around. I put some craft shop 1" skid proof rubber pads on each corner of the smooth side that stabilizes it nicely for tough cutting meats and gives it some space under the board to avoid water on the wood from underneath.
If you are not a chef or full time cook, this board will do the job for you --- in style. The groove channel for meats is cut nicely and the smooth reverse is ideal for veggies and such. Cutting with my Shun knives doesn't mark it up as long as one seasons it with oil/beeswax on occasion.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent birch wood ends with pretty contrast on both sides.

Hello airmilt, there are complete instructions for cleaning a butcher block cutting board on the internet. According to a site on the Food Network you can rinse immediately after use; disinfect using 3 percent hydrogen peroxide;
remove stains with coarse salt or baking soda; deodorize with white vinegar and sanitize using diluted bleach for an occasional extra-deep cleaning. Thank you for shopping with us.
