Beautiful and Functional-UPDATED 7/7/17
February 22, 2017
I received this board quicker than I thought I would. That was unexpectedly awesome.
I've had it for 9 days, opened and on the counter for 7 days. I have conditioned it with mineral oil every one of those 7 days, and have used it to chop or cut on for at least five of the seven. It looks great. No raised pieces, shards, or splinters.
It's large enough to hold two or three different veggies; slice one, push it away, slice the next one, etc.
Maybe I push when I slice meat or veggies, but it does slide around. I thought it should have 'feet' or something on the bottom, but remembered BOTH sides are useable cutting board. I'll either need to learn not to push forward when I slice, or get a non-slip pad for under it since I do only use one side at a time. :)
So, other than my own cutting/slicing technique, this board is fabulous so far.
I have now had this board for almost two months (50 days, actually)...and as you can see by the second picture, It still looks good. I have conditioned it every day for the first week, then once a week for the next three weeks, and am currently now only conditioning it once a month, as per instructions.
This cutting board, besides being good looking, has held up beautifully. And I cook a LOT. I am constantly chopping vegetables, potatoes, meat, fruit, you name it. This cutting board acts as my second countertop next to my stove. It is *always* out and available.
It's been five months since I purchased and started using this board. I have had ZERO complaints with it. As suggested by a commenter, a non-slip pad under it solved my sliding issue from the way I cut veggies.
I added two more photos to show what it looks like at the five month mark.
Seriously, you treat this board like it's supposed to be treated, I am confident it will give you years of functionality.
