Who gets excited about a cutting board, right?
Well.... we'd been using the same sad plastic cutting board for about 5 years, so it was time to move on, and this is a definite improvement.
The new cutting board is beautiful bamboo. So, not only is it sturdy, it's environmentally sustainable as well. And it meets the #1 requirement of being long enough to balance over my sink. It's actually slightly larger than the old one, so hopefully it will cut down on the number of times I attempt to cut something, everything slides into the sink, and I narrowly miss chopping off a finger. (Good times.)
