Epicurean Cutting Surfaces?

Does anyone have one of these cutting boards. I think it may be exactly what I am looking for but it is very expensive so I would love to hear opinions before I jump in. Thanks!

Hi, yes I have one of these boards. I really love it. It's very much like wood to cut on in feel, and it's kind to your knife blades, but it can be put in the dishwasher, unlike wood boards. I have a large one right now, but I'd like to get a smaller one also. I don't think you can go wrong with one of these.

Thanks, that's great to hear. I think I'll get the big one first and then follow up with the smaller one as well. Does the surface get scratched up from the knives?

Sorry, I forgot to ask if it warps. I'm sure it doesn't but I have to ask. Here's the link properly by the way.

No the surface has not scratched at all, no knife cut marks. I think you'd have to cut down pretty hard to scratch it. Before I bought it at the kitchen store I asked the guy if it was hard on knives and he cut across it with a knife tip to show it was like wood, but he deliberately did it. Mine has no marks on it. It hasn't warped either. I bought the thicker board with the black around the edge, so I don't know if that makes a difference or not. It's been through the dishwasher a number of times and is still perfectly flat. They had a less expensive thinner model in the same line. I don't know if that one would warp or not. I saw the boards on Amazon. Not sure if they're the thin or thicker ones.

Thank so much for your help. I'm planning on getting the one with the groove around the edge which I think also has a black stripe through it. It's 1/2 inch thick so it should hold up well! Thanks so much again!

I have one of these boards and I am taking it back. After just 2 months and never soaking it or putting it in the dishwasher it warped so badly it will not sit on its rubber feet.

My boards do not have any feet. I have 3 different sizes, including one with groove for 5+ years and love them. They are perfectly flat, no wrapping. I putat least one of them into dishwashed every night.
