Product Description

Color: Slate/ Natural

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 slate round big block board measures 18-inches in diameter by 1-inch thick and has slate/ natural 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

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.

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.

NSF Certified

Heat Resistant to 350˚F
