A high-quality beautiful walnut wood cutting board for daily cutting and dicing needs!
Since a cutting board is known to be the workhorse behind every meal preparation, you must invest in a good-quality kitchen cutting board. Although plastic cutting boards are budget-friendly and dishwasher safe, they are prone to deep knife cuts, wrapping, and breakage. Also, the marble, steel, and glass cutting boards are easy to clean but damages or dull your knife because of hardness. This is why it’s best to use a wooden cutting board to overcome such issues.
Virginia Boys Kitchens makes this large cutting board from solid black American walnut wood that is not only durable but also famous for its deluxe appearance. Moreover, all the materials used are 100% food-safe, natural, and clean since food will be in contact with the board. Made for everyday usage, it resists moisture with straight soft walnut grains.
Both board surfaces are extremely knife-friendly with a satin rich chocolate brown shade finish. Also, the large space allows slicing up the ingredients properly. Since it has a large size and beautiful finish, it can also be used for cheese servings. It also makes a great gift for your friends or family who love to cook.
I chose the large-sized 17 x 11 x 0.75 inches walnut board because we all need room to cut comfortably and safely even with long knives. However, the large size doesn’t mean it’s too heavy or hard to grasp. The Virginia Boys Kitchens walnut board weighs only 4 pounds that makes it lightweight enough for everyday use. Despite there are no grips or handles, it’s simple to grasp for easy maneuvering.
Plus, a bonus is that the board is reversible, you can use both sides. I use one side for cutting vegetables and meat while you can use the other side for serving appetizers or anything you want. Cutting is not the only purpose, it’s your charcuterie and cheese board as well.
In order to keep the kitchen neat, juice drip grooves around the board’s edges are very useful for catching runaway liquid that comes from veggies, fruits, or cooked meat. One thing for sure, it won’t dull your sharp knife. Thanks to the knife-friendly cutting surface, walnut wood keeps blades sharper for a longer time than glass, slate, bamboo, and marble cutting boards. Your knife sticks just a little as you cut and that gives you excellent control.
Although the board’s surface is said to be non-porous and comes pre-seasoned with organic coconut oil, there’s still a need to regularly oil to prevent moisture trapping or drying. With a good cleaning and proper oiling routine, my Virginia Boys Kitchens large cutting board stayed flat and showed no signs of warping. Nonetheless, there were some minor scratches when putting through 6 months of daily use. Quickly and easily dice onions, mince fresh herbs, chop chilies, or cut boned-meat!
Yes, of course! Walnut wood cutting board by Virginia Boys Kitchens retailed at $75.00 is an excellent cutting board. Say goodbye to cheap polypropylene or plastic cutting boards that are prone to cracking, the walnut wood cutting board is the best replacement. You want a cutting board that’s nice to cut on; not have your food slide all around. Use it every day to cut, slice, mince, or dice foods without dulling your cutting knives. Performance-wise, the large-sized walnut board is a great addition to any kitchen.
Plus, the good news is that a tree is planted on every purchase of walnut cutting board.
However, this cutting board is made from natural wood material so requires regular maintenance and care to prevent cracking and warping due to dryness. Also, make sure that the wooden board doesn’t soak up excess moisture. Follow the standard cutting board care routine and your walnut wood board will last for years to come.
