This cutting board is a premium grade commercial cutting surface for the home. It is designed specifically for carving roasts and poultry, and may be used for serving and food presentation, or as a trivet. The reverse side of the cutting board has a unique checkerboard pattern routed out of the board's surface to help hold the meat in place while it is being cut, as we all as a juice groove to prevent juices from reaching the countertop. The cutting board is made from an environmentally friendly natural wood fibre composite, used by chefs and commercial kitchens for over 40 years. The cutting surface won't dull knives and is extremely durable; it is dishwasher safe and heat resistant to 350°F. As well, the non-porous surface prevents the growth of bacteria and unwanted food odours.
