I am on my second of these cutting boards, as I had to return the first one because it warped, had lots of cuts in the surface from use, and ended up getting moldy. My second one seems to be headed in the same direction - it no longer lies flat on my counter, so it is hard to keep it steady when chopping. It's also got lots of cuts in the surface (even though the store employees mentioned that they had never seen such a thing with this cutting board), and I'm about to go buy another type to replace it.
The design looks nice (until you start using it), and I love the fact that you can throw this in the dishwasher (unlike bamboo), but it's not worth buying a new one every two months or so..
I took a knife skills class at Sur la Table in Northern VA, and the chef recommended this board to the class. (It's also the board they use in all of their cooking classes...which means they get used hundreds of times per month, and put through their commercial dishwasher every day.)
I've had my cutting board for about six months. I use it daily, sometimes multiple times, and it is in fantastic shape.
I do put it through the dishwasher daily, and I also hand scrub it between uses. The board only has a few knife marks, hasn't warped at all, and looks practically knew.
I do use both sides of the board, and alternate with each use. I'm not sure if that's made a difference in the wear (or lack of).
This board has exceeded my expectations, and I like that it's more gentle on my knife than a plastic cutting board would be
To begin with, it smells atrocious when it arrives. Unfortunately we gave this as gifts to people this year. With a few cleanings the horrible chemical smell goes away. Secondly, Epicurean places a huge sticker on the board which leaves a blanched rectangular spot that looks bad. We have cleaned our board multiple times and cannot get the big blanched out rectangle to go away. I called Epicurean's Customer Service almost two weeks ago - left a message as instructed - and still no response. We spent $50 a board to give these inferior products as gifts this year. And because they were gifts we cannot go back and tell everyone we will take the board back and try and get replacements from Sur La Table. Sur La Table and Epicurean - this could not have been the first time you have heard this - shame on you
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband this year, and like it a lot. We have several of the smaller boards by Epicurean which do not have the non-slip corners, and they slide around a lot, so I thought this would be a good upgrade.
The board performs well, the non-slip corners make it stay where it should, and it's easy to wash and use.
But I was dismayed as some other reviewers were by the sticker that the board came with.
When removed it left behind ghosting of the lettering on the sticker itself, which took quite some time and scrubbing to remove.
Clearly Epicurean needs to change the adhesive and/or the sticker itself on this product.
We now have all three sizes and love the look of these. The non slip edges makes them so easy to work with. The one we had the longest is showing knife marks on the surface of it now though. Because of the rubber edges I do not put in the dishwasher. I simply wash in sink with hot soap and water and occasionally wipe with a paper towel with some bleach on it. Not had any problems
I have never been so in love with the function of a cutting board! The rubber grips on the sides hold the board still which takes the danger out of cutting. I used to fight my old cutting board that would slide around while I was trying to slice and dice. Now I feel safe and can chop at a faster pace. It is also a great surface to cut on. In another review, it was mentioned that you could see the cut marks from the knife on the cutting board. This is true, but I don't see how a "cutting board" could not have this! It does not affect the function or feel of the board. It also does have an interesting smell when you first buy it, but most new things do. After you wash it and use it, the "new smell" goes away. I am a huge advocate for this cutting board and would highly recommend it. To be honest, I would not choose any other kind of cutting board. It is lightweight yet durable and gets the job done.
I love the no-slip corners on these. It gives me a lot of stability as I slice and dice. Clean up is easy since the corners pull off and everything goes in the dishwasher. Some of the reviews of these boards complain about knife marks showing, but that is the design. The cutting board takes the wear so your knives don't dull too fast. I'd rather pay $40 for a cutting board every few years than get a new $200 knife every few years.
Have one and really love the features-- light weight, dishwasher safe safe. I bought one after a cooking class.. Have read the reviews and feel any cutting board is going to show knife marks. Love that I can pop it in the dishwasher--I put it only in the top basket.
Used these in a cooking class. Loved them. They do not retain the smells from even onions and garlic. They can be put into the dishwasher, and do not dull my knives. I have this cutting board in three sizes.
I purchased this board as a gift for my grandma. Last year I got her a Sur La Table cooking class gift card, and she loved the class and has since raved and raved about the cutting boards used. Thank you to the kind staff for pointing me to this one as the one used in SLT's classes - she will love it and be so surprised!!

How do you get rid of the mark that the sticker makes when you remove it? I have a large discolored rectangle where the sticker was after removal of on one side of the cutting board.

Best Answer:I have purchased 3 of the Epicurean cutting boards (love them!) but have not had a problem with the sticker leaving a mark. I have used a product in the past called Goo Gone for removing the "sticky" residue left behind - not sure if that will help with the discoloration issue but it may be worth a try.
I have never had a problem with the sticker leaving a mark. I bought my mom this cutting board for Christmas and the sticker was easily removed without sticky residue left behind. I have used goo gone in the past and seems to work well on any sticky residue.
