Epicurean Cutting Surfaces 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 Cutting Surfaces 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 are made up of layers of paper that are then soaked with a food safe resin and cured to create a solid sheet. During the production cycle the layers of paper are gradually bonded with each other to create solid, durable sheets. The final product is exceptionally strong and still maintains a warm and natural look. Epicurean Cutting Surfaces resist staining and cracking, and are heat resistant up to 350°. Manufactured in the USA.
