This is a review of online retailer, WoodCuttingBoards.com and their custom, laser-engraved wooden cutting boards.
There are two types of cutting boards that we use in the Steamy Kitchen. The first is an antimicrobial poly cutting board by Neoflam for cutting raw meats and fish. It’s a large, lightweight board with silicone grips to prevent slipping. It also fits in my dishwasher and can withstand abuse and an occasional spray of bleach water for a deep clean.
The second cutting board is one that stays on my countertop at all times. It’s a custom made walnut cutting board, about 30″ square. This is my everyday board that is used for fruits, vegetables, cheese, cooked meats and even rolling out dough. I like the extra-large size, I can cut 4 different items on the board without having to wash or transfer ingredients.
We recently tried walnut cutting boards from WoodCuttingBoards.com, and were really impressed with the quality of the boards. Their products are all made in North America (they sell in both Canada and USA) and are made from 100% high quality maple, walnut or cherry woods.
We also had our Steamy Kitchen logo engraved onto both sides of the board. The process was so easy – just upload a jpg of your logo to their online ordering page. They’ll work with you on the size and position of the laser engraving. The laser engraving is so precise that even the tiny dots of the steam were perfect.
End Grain vs. Edge Grain Cutting Boards
The most popular wood cutting boards are edge grain. Strips of wood are laid side by side and fused together.
This results in a beautiful cutting board that allows you to see the pattern of the wood. Edge grain cutting boards are cheaper, and also will show cutting marks easily.
