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. Every design is thoughtfully detailed for functionality in use, clean up and storage. All Epicurean Cutting boards are designed to fit in the dishwasher and many of our boards are NSF® approved, so that you can be assured that they will be easy to clean and will not harbor bacteria. Cutting on Epicurean boards will not dull your knives because the surface will score slightly, which helps it protect your knife's edge. These boards are made with a non-porous wood fiber composite from trees harvested under guidelines of the North America Sustainable Forestry Standards. Epicurean Cutting Surfaces® resist staining and cracking, and are heat resistant up to 350°. Manufactured in the USA . Reversible, this board is designed with a juice trough on one side and a flat side surface on the other side. This board measures 20 inches by 15 inches by 3/8 inches thick, with a cascade effect of color, slate with natural.

From the Manufacturer

Epicurean

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.

Customer Reviews

It can be put in the dishwasher.

My knives have stayed sharp and happy through many uses of it and there has been no marks on the cutting board itself.
Jon Grove
The drip channel is good, not too deep but still catches the juices.

I have been looking for a good chopping board for ages and this one is the best I've used so far. The wooden ones need good caring and I simply don't have the time to oil them so they've gone dry. I've also used a bamboo one but it cracked after a while and for me it's a bit too heavy to lift and wash. I enjoy the Epicurean cutting board immensely - it's light, easy to carry around and wash, leaves only very light cutting marks and protects my Zwilling knives. Also it doesn't need oiling so it always looks fab!

The board is very light for its size and appears to be quite durable. And it's easy to clean.

But it has a very hard feel--more like cutting on glass or granite than on a traditional wood or plastic board. If you do any chopping, it sounds like machine gun fire. And if you do slicing/rocking with a curved chef's knife, it's still has a pretty harsh feel. I still haven't used it long enough to judge whether it really doesn't dull knives any faster than wood--but I have doubts, given how it feels.

Also, out of the box it had a horrible smell--like a wet dog wearing a wet wool sweater. But after a run through the dishwasher, it went away. Not sure if it will ever reappear (tho I note that Cook's Illustrated described the device as having a bad, lasting odor).

This is an excellent cutting board. It's nice to have a large board with a juice groove that is dishwasher safe. I prefer wood for cutting non-bacterial stuff like produce, but this is perfect for things like poultry. I also used it to carve a rotisserre chicken, and was quite pleased. The one minor flaw is that I have a granite countertop, and unless I place a towel underneath it slides a little if I'm doing some serious chopping. But as it's meant to be usable on two sides, I don't mind very much.

I've had this slate w/ black juice groove board in the 13 x 18 size for 2 years now. It is our only cutting board and we use it for cutting meat, veggies, and bread. Really, it had only the faintest of cutting marks on it up until a month or so ago. It was at that time a month ago that I started using a heavy meat cleaver to hack through turkey necks for our dogs' raw diet. Yes, it's showing considerable marks from hacking apart over 50 pounds of turkey necks with that meat cleaver, as you might have guessed.

It has no stains on it, though I suppose we don't really cut anything on it that would stain it, but I thought it worth mentioning that it hasn't discolored at all. It is a bit of a hassle to store it in our cupboards so we leave it out all the time, propped up on our counter. When we first got it I washed it a few times in the dishwasher but it does take up quite a bit of space so now we just give it a quick wash in the sink, easy breezy.

It still is a handsome cutting board even with those meat cleaver hacks and we'll continue to use it.

**UPDATE** Well, when I used the meat cleaver to cut apart 50 lbs of turkey necks with this cutting board, it survived. The same can't be said when my husband helped me out by hacking apart 30 lbs of turkey necks for our dogs' raw diet... he can swing the cleaver a lot harder than I can to cut through a turkey neck in one swing. The cutting board has met its end, the top layer has been chopped and marked up enough that it has peeled up, revealing a composite-type material underneath the pretty exterior. We'll continue to use this cutting board for raw turkey necks but we had to get a new cutting board for other tasks. So, to make a long story short, don't bring a meat cleaver down hard repeatedly upon this Epicurean cutting board. Yes, we should have known better. :)

Color Name: Slate CoreSize Name: 15-Inch by 11-Inch
I have several epicurean cutting boards, including this one with the groove. My "go to" ones are this same size and have the little silicone grippers on the corners. The best things about these boards are that they are lightweight, easy to clean, and store. I do not put them in the dishwasher-it seems to me that it would dry them out-so I wash by hand.
I do find they have a weird smell the first time you get them wet. I have solved that problem by making a thick paste of baking soda and water and letting it sit on the board for about 15 minutes when I first buy the board. I wash the paste off, and it's good to go-the stink is faded and hardly noticable. Totally gone within a couple uses.
I've also realized that you can make these look like new by spreading a little board mineral oil on them. Perfect.
Hope that helps!

This Epicurean has a smooth surface (unlike cheap plastic cutting boards), is dishwasher safe, very sturdy, looks great, and makes you feel like a $@#&ing stud in the kitchen

Color Name: Natural with Slate CoreSize Name: 15-Inch-by-11-Inch
I was excited about this board when I first got it, but they don't warn you that this board is NOT designed to be left out on the counter for continued use or it will WARP and no longer lie flat on the counter. It is designed to be used and then stored on it's side to dry after washing. I contacted Epicurean customer support and they acknowledged that if the board is washed, dried, and left flat on the counter, the residual moisture under the board will cause it to warp. They suggested leaving the board slightly damp and lie it flat on the other side to cause the board to warp back in the other direction. That worked, and has started a cycle of having to warp the board back and forth over and over again for the past year that I've owned it. NOT was I was looking for in a cutting board at this price, since I want to leave it on the counter permanently as my cutting surface. The actually cutting on the board is nice, it's easy on my knives and easy to clean, and much lower maintenance than a natural wood cutting block. I have been disappointed in it due to the warping which is not acknowledged in the product description or recommendations on use.
