Epicurean Cutting Boards, Natural
Remarkable material is non-porous and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and the National Sanitary Foundation. It’s easy to clean and will not harbor bacteria. Boards develop a richer color with use. As the boards are heat resistant to 350°F, you can use them as trivets without leaving a blemish. Unlike wood and bamboo, these can be cleaned in the dishwasher. All Epicurean products are responsibly made in Duluth, Minnesota, USA.
Cutting boards sold separately, not as a set.
For their size, they are a little heavy. But that's about the biggest drawback. Over time they will get marked up a little, but nothing too bad unless you are just improperly sawing away on them with a serrated blade or something of that sort. They won't get marked up nearly as bad as plastic or even wood where the grain of the board runs the length of the board.
Plastic will dull your knives and glass is even far worse.
The only type of board I've found to be better than these is a good end grain cutting board done by a local carpenter or a good company like Boos. If you get a cheap end grain cutting board then they'll want to split apart.
But end grain cutting boards have a couple disadvantages to these boards. They're far heavier and harder to store. And you can't stick them in the dishwasher to clean them.
I do basically all of my cutting on these boards or end grain cutting boards. Nothing else performs well enough for me
I'm coveting one of the black ones now, but not sure I can justify that since the one I have is still just about perfect.
I highly recommend this board
