I was debating getting this or the William Sonoma double sided cutting board. Oh, I'm so happy I went with this. It is a very sturdy and heavy cutting board. I love the dark wood color. The only reason I am rated it a 4 out of 5 is that there was a little damage when it arrived.
I have to round this up to five stars except to note that it may be cumbersome for someone to clean it in the sink because it is so heavy and sturdy. I only use the board for prepping dry foods like breads, hard cheeses, and such. I use a food safe oil for woods to maintain its antimicrobial barrier. I'm extremely pleased with the product.
Husband loves it. Too big to easily clean in my sink so I avoid it but it is a VERY nice board. I would definitely gift this item.
Remarkable board, exactly as described, and the wood is beautiful. Oiled to seal and almost don't want to use it..so nice, thanks.
I was surprised! It is a much better counter top pastry board than I expected!
