    • Slab End Grain Cutting Board w/ Finger Grooves
      Verified Purchase

      As you'll hear from the other reviewers of this product, this is the end all of cutting boards. I can almost guarantee that this cutting board is larger than you expect, even if you read the dimensions and picture it in your head it's still going to seem huge when you first open it up. The board is 18x18x3 and must weight around 30 lbs. Not the kind of cutting board you want to have to pull out of the cupboard all the time and put back, but the finger grooves and manageable weight definitely make it possible if that's what you want to do. The board is designed beautifully and comes pre-oiled and plastic wrapped. Like someone else said in their review, this can definitely become a family heirloom...if you take care of it correctly. Do yourself a favor and get some food grade mineral oil and read up on how to properly clean and maintain a cutting board, and this board will probably outlive you.

      This is a great quality cutting board. The finger grooves are perfect for moving the board. Follow the cleansing and oiling directions. It should be in great for a very long time,

      This is the second of these cutting boards I have bought. The first was for myself and I was so impressed that it was a natural birthday gift for my brother. This item is like a piece of furniture. It is heavy and large. Don't plan on storing it in an out of the way location because some people might hurt their backs trying to lift it from a low location. It does require some care, mineral oil will initially be soaked into the wood in large quantities, but the feeling of substantial firmness you get while chopping vegetables will make it all worth wild. Those that have grown up using plastic cutting boards that wanted to move around on the counter will get a new experience. Best of all, everyone that comes into your kitchen will at the very least, rub their hands along the grain and admire this thing, most will be forced to ask where you found it and tell you how beautiful it is. If your are serious in the kitchen or just trying to look like you are serious, buy this, you will not be disappointed.

    • Looks very well made, but cumbersome
      Verified Purchase

      I had done a lot of research on cutting boards. Styles, grain orientation, woods versus plastics, and on and on. I pulled the trigger on ordering one of these massive block style end grain cutting boards and would say ultimately it was a bad choice for a number of reasons: 1. Price: I purchased 4 other boards to replace this when I sent it back. ALL 4 NEW boards cost what this 1 board is 2. Practicality: This thing is huge and heavy. It is not practical at all in a kitchen sink. My GF could hardly lift it, let alone get it scrubbed down in the sink and back onto the counter top. 3. Food Safety: What I concluded was that I should really own 3-4 boards. 1-2 wood boards for veggy/fruit/ prep chopping and such, and 2 plastic boards for meat / fish. The plastic boards are commercially accepted as "safer" and I would agree if from only one perspective… throw them in the dishwasher. While there are some wood boards that say dishwasher safe, they are full of it. A dishwasher will completely strip a wood board of its oils and coating, drying it out and guaranteeing cracking and fading in short time. So ultimately I ended up with 4 OXO Good Grips boards. There is a style they sell that is flat on one side and has a juice trap on the other and they intelligently put the feet attached on the end pieces so if you flip the board to either side you have some grip to your counter surface. They also make them in 2 or 3 different colors so that you can note a color for a food product.. My black one is for beef and chicken and such, red one for fish.. Then 2 bamboo ones for veggies and such. ALL 4 of these boards put together and shipped cost what this one end grain board cost. Mind you, I am using all Shun and Global knives and can tell you too that the end grain is not something worth it in terms of the effect on the blade. Get a good ceramic sharpener and keep the blade straight and have them professionally sharpened once or twice a year and all will be happy with your fancy knives without having to use a 2 ton slab of craziness :-)

    • Solid Performer
      Verified Purchase

      I am constantly reaching for a cutting board. I considered this substantial board for the features, quality, and convenience of leaving it out on the counter. It is a beautiful asset to my kitchen as well as it's performance. I give it 4 stars for the reason that the cutting/chopping surfaces are smooth, mine has a couple of very minor knot areas near edges and hasn't proven to be an issue. The only flaw is that most sides are rougher than should be. When conditioning mine "catches" somewhat. This isn't a big issue but in order to receive the excellent rating it should not do this. The finger grooves are quite smooth and I couldn't think of turning this big boy without them. If the grooves are smooth why couldn't the sides be? This board has that wonderful clunk when giving what you're chopping some muscle, and it is such a solid performer. I am glad that I made this investment and am certain that I will have a great board for many years with continued proper care.

    • Excellent product!
      Verified Purchase

      Excellent cutting board; highly recommended. The board seems to absorb mineral oil like a sponge. I've been alternating between straight mineral oil and oil/beeswax mix to protect the board. The board is very heavy, and makes an excellent base for pounding meats, as well as for cutting.

      Commercial grade! This is my second Catskill slab cutting board. My son, who went to culinary school, made such a big deal out of the quality and thought I paid double the price, that I purchased one as a gift for him. I oiled it up right after taking it out of the box. The cutting board oil enriched the color of the wood and protected it from future cracks. It’s so pretty, I keep it out on the countertop always. It draws a lot of attention and is the topic of many kitchen conversations. LOL! I wouldn’t recommend it for the casual cook who wants to put it away with each use as it is very heavy. But, the routed indented handles on the side make it nice when you do need to move it. Very happy with this purchase.

    • HEAVY & better then described.
      Verified Purchase

      My UPS deliverer left box on my front porch table and I wondered why until I lifted the board and brought it into the house ( he did me a favor by not putting it on the ground). I would say this is a stay put board due to it's weight, it is a HEAVY cutting board and is more beautiful then the photo. Please note, the color depicted in photo is what board looks like after you oil (preparing/maintaining) it. I have shun knives and I wanted a new board that would help keep my knives sharp. Before your board arrives, purchase mineral oil and save money on specialty oils. I use cheap white bar towels for cleaning my boards because they are soft and easy to clean after use. I purchased another cutting board with groves which is reversible and MUCH lighter. Both boards come from "Catskill Craftsman, Inc." and Overstocks prices were good at the time I purchased. Both boards are now selling for more. Top quality boards start at $$$. I have no complaints thus far. The company doesn't tell you the item is on it's way...it just shows up.

    • Cutting with style
      Verified Purchase

      This cutting board is a great addition to my kitchen. After a couple weeks the board has been fantastic. It came conditioned from the factory, but I chose to apply a light coat of food-grade mineral oil, which enhanced the grain and colors of the board. I am very happy with the style, durability and functionality of this cutting board. Because of it's large size and weight, instead of washing in the sink I've been giving it a quick wipe off after use, which is all it needs for the veges, fruits and nuts I've been cutting. I am very happy with it and highly recommend this cutting board.

    • Heavy
      Verified Purchase

      This was a sturdy and heavy cutting board....almost too heavy for me. I found that I rarely used it because it was hard to lift when cleaning, moving it around to provide extra counter work space, etc. Maybe it would work best in a very large kitchen.Although I thought I was conditioning it on a regular basis, I obviously was not because it split right down the middle, rendering it completely useless to me. I pitched it after two years.

      Absolutely love this cutting board. I have always wanted one but didn’t want to spend the money. Great price and so glad I did. I am tall and with the thickness it makes cutting a breeze. Just beware that it is very heavy. I have it right by my sink which makes prepping easier.

      I love this cutting board. I lovingly oil it with cutting board oil (by Boos) every once in awhile and it looks new after three years. It is gentle on my knives and looks very professional. It is very thick and heavy. It's good for tall people so they don't have to bend down as far while prepping food.
