I wanted a small board to always have on the countertop for little things like cutting a lemon (wheee you're sometimes tempted to skip a cutting board altogether and god forbid use your good knife to cut against a hard surface). I wanted to only ever use one side and have the other side a little elevated so it wouldn't ever sit in water if the counter is wet.
You can see the pictures I took and personally I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. My steps were:
- bought 4 rubber stoppers from the hardware store and cut them in half so they didn't go too deep
- drilled shallow holes in the backside of the board going with progressively larger drill bits until I hit the width where the stopper was sunk in snug.
- repeat 4 times. Little gorilla glue in the holes to keep the stoppers in place over time.
- let dry
- Sand the board real well as it definitely arrives rough (I went 200 grit than 400)
- mineral oil it for several days in a row
(I actually did sand and oil steps first, but would make more sense to do last in hindsight )
Even after seasoning these boards with mineral oil they won't come close to what is pictured. The boards are glued together from 5 or 6 wood planks, the edges of each clearly discernible unlike in the Amazon product image. I have uploaded a side-by-side comparison picture that shows a board I have received right next to the image used to sell them. They look nothing alike.
While I understand that wood is unique and not every board will look the same, shipping merchandise that is so far removed from what is advertised borders - in my opinion - on consumer deception.
Mr. Batali, if you are reading this, the company that has licensed your name is cheapening your brand by shipping inferior product.
The size and weight are both good and it looks nice - basically it's exactly what I was looking for except the dishwasher ruined it.
Two weeks after contacting the manufacturer without a reply (other than the automatic email receipt reply) I returned the item to Amazon for a refund. Not only a poor quality product but horrendous customer service as well!
The quality of the board looks and feels great too. It is lightweight and hard.
I conditioned the board 3 times before using it with John Taylor brand Butcher Block Conditioner, which Amazon sells. I've read it's crucial to not only condition a wood cutting board before using it but to condition it every month as well. That will keep the board from drying out and help avoid cracking and splitting.
For day to day care, Hand wash a wood cutting board with soap and warm water after using, and then dry. Do not use a dishwasher, it will ruin a wood cutting board, causing warping and drying out the wood from the intense heat, which will cause cracking and splitting. Do not allow water or juices to rest on the board for long periods. As soon as you are done cutting food, wipe any standing water off, it will prolong the life of the board.
I will post a follow up here once I've had this board for a few months, but so far, I am very happy with this board. Please see my pictures.
UPDATE: September, 2014. I've had this cutting board just over 6 months now and it's still holding up well. It has the usual knife marks any wood board gets with use, but it's a good quality board. It hasn't warped or split. I wash it with hot soapy water and then towel dry. Never put a wood cutting board in a dishwasher as the heat will warp and can crack it. I'm happy with this purchase and the board looks great.
