these are great... I've had mine for nearly 3 years and it still looks exactly like the picture (minus onions and garlic!!!!!) - despite being used every day... washes easily.
Steal at this price... hell... at that price I might get them to tile my whole work top with!!!!!! ;-)

Is this used in place of a chopping board?

Yes, just to point you to one of the reviews on the argos site:

""Bought when I had my new kitchen fitted and wanted a permanent chopping board to save damage to my worktop. Both very stylish and very hardwearing. Excellent purchase!"

Hope this helps, cheers:thumbsup:

Hi,i asked a question if this can be used as a chopping board and had a look on the inter-web and found this
Cutting Boards

Never use a glass, ceramic, marble, or granite cutting surface. These will dull and damage the cutting edge. Knives need a board surface softer than the knife itself. The best cutting boards are wood or plastic. The blade will cut into the board, but that is what the board is for. The most common cause of wear of the cutting edge of a knife is due to contact with the cutting surface.

Use plastic cutting boards for meat preparation. These can be safely sanitized in the dishwasher after every use.

Horrible white squares! Argos do a plane version too for £9.99

ASDA do these too and they're even thicker and plain. They're usually £9.99 too but the Livingston store were doing them for £7+ last week. I doubt there's any there (I bought the last 2 for gifts) but maybe worth having a look in another store.

I've been using one for years and they will dull a knife a tad but anything does that. The benefits (no maintenance, won't move, look good and hygienic) outweight a bit knife shrapening now and again.

Nice! I'm getting a few of these for karate chopping on ;)

Personaly, I wouldn't want to cut anything on that with my Global knives, but if you're not too fussy about keeping your knives in tip-top condition, then go for it.
#15
To echo what others have said (and talking from experience!) - if you have decent knives really do not use this as a chopping board! In a matter of days you'll notice the difference, and the knives wi'll literally be blunt in a few weeks. I've got a similar Tesco one which is great (and I'd buy another one at this price), it just doesn't get used for chopping any more.
#16
Another ditto for this being a stupid idea!

It looks great, but will not keep your knives sharp. Only use as a base when tenderising meat or similar, and not for chopping!

I agree, i think Granite would be very hard on knives and a wood chopping board better- but not as trendy:)

Not really ,it is good for protecting a work surface but not so good as a chopping board-that's all :thumbsup: and it is a good deal:)

I believe some guys use this kind of thing to sit their subwoofers on to help with sound quality - could be an inexpensive addition to your home cinema set up if your that way inclined..

I'd call it laziness:w00t::w00t:

we have one of these... had it for a couple of years now and its still in great condition. heat added... only downside to it is its very heavy and i find it a struggle to lift to clean under it. (but then i am a woman who doesnt have big muscles!) The squares on mine are more a dark grey colour.

:thumbsup:

not just subwoofers, but normal speakers like floorstanders too. i'm not sure if this board would be big enough for a subwoofer apart from the plastic all in one types

aparently wooden chopping boards are supposed to be the best as there is something about the wood that kills germs or something better than the plastic ones that can get little scratches and cuts where germs can breed, even after being wiped. personally i stick to prepacked meals that i can nuke in the microwave and i can keep my nice looking knives and pots and pans nice and clean looking as i don't have to use them. i eat out of the plastic dish and later bin it to save on the washing up too. it saves the environment from washing up liquid and wasting water on doing dishes. i'm so ecologically friendly :p

Morrisons sell one of these without the square pattern, but theirs is heatproof, for the same price iirc.


Are these not heatproof then ? I would have thought that granite would be ? Did you have details of the ones from Morrisons ? Cheers :thumbsup:
#30
Granite will have no problem with heat, as long as it is thick enough. A thin slice might crack if a hot pan is placed on it.
#31
voted hot :)
#32
Brought two of these yesterday.
Please note;
NOT suitable for items taken straight from the oven.

[FONT=Comic Sans MS][COLOR=navy]Got one of the last 2 in my local. Many thanks[/COLOR][/FONT]

I use two of these regularly in the oven for cooking pizza on... they are heat resistant.... I put the oven on 250degrees for pizzas... put these chopping boards on the bottom rack of the oven and cook...

**** CUT OFF THE RUBBER FEET THINGS FIRST THOUGH!!!! *****

I put them in when the oven is cold, so they warm up gradually.

Also - I use them to chop on every day and have no problem with knives going blunt! I use semi-decent knives, and they're absolutely fine.... Gordon sharpens his before each use (at least on tele!!!!) so I don't see the problem! Much more hygienic than wood.

just reserved another one at this price.
