Cheap end grain Cutting Board

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

FYI, I saw an end grain board approximately 14x14 inch with two of the sides slightly crescent curved in shape - maybe 1 & 3/8 to 1 & 1/2 inch thick for sale at Lowes for $30.00... It had four feet on it too, to keep it dry on the bottom. It looked really good for the price, made in Canada too.

Yeah, the ones in my store looked darker than that picture, but its that same one I believe.

$30 is not a lot to lose even if the board doesn't work out for you. 

 

Couple of caveats though: 

  1. 14" x 14" is pretty small, less than 200 sq in.  If you're thinking about this as the only or even primary prep surface, I urge you to get something bigger; 300 sq in is by no means generous; and
  2. You get what you pay for.  At any rate, the cheap cutting boards I've bought in the past warped and/or split very quickly.  Your luck may be better.

I've gotten very used to my 18"x24" boards (432 sq-in)

We've got two boards permanently on our counters at home.  It's a galley kitchen, sink and stove on different sides; with an 18" diameter round board on the wet side, and an 18" x 24" rectangle on the hot side.  18" x 24" is a convenient size for a primary board, but hardly huge.   It's nice to have two boards.
