My old cutting board broke in two so I needed to replace it. Pros: I really, really like this board. I like the fact that it has different cutting surfaces. I used to feel like I was always washing my cutting board. Now, I can just change surfaces every time I chop something new. I also leave my cutting board on the counter so I can create a different look with the different colors. I also like the fact that I can pick up whatever I was chopping put it aside, chop something else, put that aside (keeping them on their respective cutting sheet) and then add them to the pot/pan when needed-- straight from their chopping surfaces. (Keep in mind you need counter space to do this) I used to slide things into different little bowls, wash the board, chop, slide things into little bowls... I also like the fact that the cutting sheets are easy to wash. With my old cutting board, I worried that the wood might retain bacteria etc-- and it was too big for my sink so washing it always made a little bit of a mess. The cutting sheets are flexible so clean up is easier. I still do wash the board, however, and it is too big for my sink, but I don't worry about the retention of bacteria as much. A few cons: When the actual board needs washing, you have to remove all the cutting sheets and store them somewhere until the board is dry. All cutting sheets should be dry when placing back into the storage compartment-- especially the one on the top of the cutting board. Because of the storage compartment-- which I really like, by the way-- i don't feel this board is as sturdy as my last board. Thus, I wouldn't take a cleaver to meat on this board. You could take a cutting sheet off the board and take a cleaver to the sheet on your counter-- but I'm not sure I would do that either. Thus, this board is great if you want to do light chopping. If you want to cleave meat, I would recommend a different board. Other than that, I really like this board.
The wood is beautiful. The cutting board sheets are heavy and excellent quality .Love the colors. You never have to ruin or contaminate the wood like with other cutting boards. I keep one on top at all times. Can't say enough about the quality, appearance, and size of this board. You will love this for yourself or a very well-received gift!
We've had one for years and it still is the best cutting board we have ever had. Now I'm buying it for my grown children. They like it also. Worth every penny!!!!

I've been thinking about getting the variety kind of cutting sheets, and I am really glad I waited. There are more sheets than any other sets I have seen, and the bamboo base is stylish and very convenient to store the PP sheets. We keep it out on the counter, since it is so attractive. It stands on its side, so it doesn't take up too much space.
For a person that cuts a lot of fresh ingredients, this board is an excellent product. For someone looking for a board to butcher, get a butchers block. I was constantly washing my old boards and putting my chopped ingredients in separate containers until I ready to use them. With this board, you simply remove an insert and put it aside and pull out another insert. It's super convenient, it saves me 30 - 45 min every time I cook on of my family's creole meals. Which consumes enough of my day. Hope this is helpful.
This was a gift for my daughter. She seems to really like it.

This is a great cutting board. Love that each of the colored plastic sleeves has an icon indicating what it is to be used for. No memory recall needed! Also love that this is a slot to store the plastic sleeves in. Can't beat the price.

I absolutely love this cutting board. For the past few years, I've kept my wooden or plastic cutting boards under the sink and used cutting sheets for most of my cutting/chopping. However, I've come to love bamboo and how easy it is to keep clean and looking nice. It's tough to give up those cutting sheets, however - what's better than chopping and being able to fold up the mat and dump the chopped stuff into the pot?? This board with the slot for the various mats is a perfect combination. The slot around the edge keeps liquid from going all over the counter, and I love that there's a color-coded and stamped mat for each type of food you might be cutting (beef, chicken, veggies, cheese, etc). They are easy to use, clean up well and storage is as simple as sliding the mat back into the center of the board. Absolutely love it!
