Product Description

Size: 21-by-16-by-1-Inch | Color: Natural/ Slate

Epicurean cutting boards are a practical and distinctive improvement from poly, glass and wood cutting boards. They have all of the best qualities and none of the bad-in one highly functional surface. Cutting on an Epicurean cutting surfaces will not dull your knives because the surface will score slightly, which helps it protect your knife's edge. These cutting boards resist staining and cracking, are nonporous and won't harbor bacteria, and are heat resistant up to 350°. The Big Block Series contains our heftiest designs, excellent for the hard-core chef . These cutting boards are 1 inch thick, which is just enough to bring some counters up to an easier level for food preparation. If you find your cutting boards or chopping block top getting worn down very quickly, this is the board for you. You won’t have to worry about splitting or rotting with long term use like you do with wood cutting boards – and as soon as it gets too roughed up for your taste (which will take longer than usual with this material), just sand it down, wash it off and you’ve got a brand new board! This natural rectangle big block board measures 21-inches by 16 inches by 1-inch thick and has natural/ slate cascading color effect on the sides. It is dishwasher safe and has removable gripper feet so that both sides can be used. Manufactured in the USA.

From the Manufacturer


Why Epicurean?

The heart of the kitchen is where memories are made, traditions are honored, and great food is prepared and shared. It is where you find Epicurean. Epicurean is a way of life—a reflection of our personal values and those of our customers. Every Epicurean cutting board and kitchen accessory is made with naturally renewable or recycled materials in an environmentally responsible way. Our products are well-designed, practical, casual tools that feel at home in any kitchen where friends and family gather to share company and enjoy good food. We pride ourselves on heartfelt, original designs that are simple, functional, and beyond trend. Quality materials are carefully selected to be both durable and environmentally conscience, creating long-lasting products that balance performance with respect for the environment. Every Epicurean product also is made in the USA, creating good jobs and strengthening the economy.

Design from the heart

Epicurean understands the relationship between the products we manufacture and the environment we all live in. Epicurean is dedicated to creating long-lasting products that are manufactured with sustainable manufacturing practices and made from environmentally conscientious materials like recycled paper, plastic, and FSC certified papers. Epicurean products are fabricated using materials that gain their natural look and texture from the organic contents that comprise them. Each color is composed of a set of fiber sources layered together and pressed along with a food safe resin to form a sheet that has unequaled food preparation properties.

Our story

In 2003 Epicurean was founded by custom skate park manufacturer TrueRide as a way to repurpose excess skating surface material used by the company. The founders of TrueRide knew of the history of the surface material in commercial kitchens, so creating a line of home food prep surfaces from scrap was as natural as, well, skating on it. They knew the wood fiber composite used in skate park ramps was durable, non-porous, and dishwasher safe. It had been used in commercial kitchens for years. TrueRide skate parks last for years outdoors with extensive abuse from both weather and skaters, so you can be sure your Epicurean product can handle even the hardest working kitchen. Today, Epicurean cutting boards, kitchen tools, and utensils are at the center of everyday life for both casual cooks and seasoned gourmets. Our signature products are still made from the same natural, organic composite that made Epicurean a household name.

Made in the U.S.A.

Our sustainable manufacturing facility is located on the North Shore of Lake Superior in Duluth, Minnesota.

Dishwasher Safe

All Epicurean products offer a durable design that can stand up to the rigorous daily use of any busy kitchen. All cutting surfaces can be cleaned in the dishwasher, or by hand in the sink with hot soapy water.

NSF Certified

This product has been certified by the National Sanitary Foundation, so you know that it has met the rigid standards for quality and safety.

Heat Resistant to 350˚F

Epicurean wood fiber products are heat resistant up to 350°F / 176°C, so you can use the surface as a trivet without leaving a blemish. (Not microwave safe & should not be used as cookware)

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Your Epicurean product is made to meet your complete satisfaction. Your product is warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for the lifetime of the product. *This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, misuse, or failure to follow care instructions.

Knife Friendly

Cutting on Epicurean cutting boards will not dull your knife so you will sharpen less.

I brought a black Epicurean cutting board and loved it so much that I went back and brought 2 more. Then one day, while cutting meat,I noticed black particles on my knife. When I checked my meat, it had black particles too. It turns out that it came from the cutting board! After consistent repeat incidents of this, I had to throw all 3 boards away because I wasn't sure what was getting into my food when I cut. Very expensive lesson - since these aren't exactly cheap.

This is a great cutting board. Not cheap; but large, very practical and won't mold like wood will, doesn't need conditioning like wood does, and is dishwasher safe (which wood isn't).

I saw a TV chef using one of these and really wanted to replace my large molding wood block with it.

Unfortunately, I tried *twice* to order it from amazon and inexplicably (and very un-amazon-like) they're just tossing it loose in a cardboard box with no padding or those inflatable things they normally use. As a result, the corners on this (it's big and heavy, and the UPS guys undoubtedly just toss it into the truck) were broken off on both. So, both back went. Amazon handled the return as well as you can handle it--but I really wanted the item safe and unbroken. I don't see any reason that if I ordered 10 of these all 10 wouldn't be broken if this is how they're shipping them.

Maybe I'll monitor the item and see if others say they changed the shipping method.

I got this board to replace some rather beat-up ones I had in my house...plus, I was upgrading to new knives so I wanted to have a fresh cutting board.

This board is HUGE...and I love it. It is thick and when a blade hits it, it's almost absorbed...without even leaving a mark. I wouldn't recommend any other cutting board, be it wood or plastic...this epicurean looks great on your counter and my new Shun knives get along great with it.

Highly recommended...would look no further if you want a great cutting board that is knife friendly!

Update 3/24/2012: This board is amazing...period...I would never consider buying anything else. Period!
