The Gourmet series feature a three-eighths inch profile. Equipped for convenience with a juice groove on one side and a flat food prep surface on the other, this is an everyday surface for difficult recipes or more common fare. The slightly heavier weight of this surface feels good under the knife but it can still be handled, cleaned, and stored easily. Epicurean Cutting Surfaces are heat resistant and can be used as a trivet. They are NSF approved and eco friendly. These knife friendly cutting boards are proudly made in the USA.
