Looks like this one;
sainsburys.co.uk/sho…ock
Not like it gives any more information, not even the dimensions!
It's still 16 quid in Leamington Spa - call before you waste your time. Luckily I was going anyway.

It does look just like that one I am sorry I can't give you the dimensions, I didn't buy it although I was mightily tempted. I couldn't think where I could make space for it in my kitchen, it wasn't enormous, but relatively large.

Sorry to hear that, maybe keep an eye on it. It might be they haven't changed the ticket yet, or it might be a totally different barcode.

Sainsbury's pricing system is centralised. 'Reduced to clear' lines like this should scan at the lower price regardless of whether or not staff have changed the ticket.

​Yea I asked them to price it, they attempted to check different stores too but their system showed it was still 16 apparently.

Not true. As someone who works for them, I see different offers on dependant on what the store want to get rid of! My local store has fleece blankets down to £7.20 whereas the store I work in is £9. Offers we are doing on Chinese style dipping bowls in our store are not in the larger store.

Thanks for clearing that up Fern
She was only a Butcher's Daughter but she laid on the Block and said 'fillet'
Still full price at Throckley Sainsburys (west Newcastle).
Still £16 in Watchmoor Park, Camberley
If you buy one of these... Make sure you buy some Mineral oil to seal it, or it will just crack and fall apart. the wood will absorb water and expand. Then it will crack, my 1st one did, the label said do not immerse in water but I wiped mine clean and after a while that had the same effect. These are not sealed wooden boards.. :-)

Sounds like good advice. I have used mineral oil/liquid paraffin on other woods.

Where do you get the mineral oil from?

I got mine from an independent chemist. Mineral oil is the same thing as liquid paraffin, which they sell a laxative! Baby oil is also mineral oil, but it usually has isopropyl palmitate instead of being straight mineral oil which can make it less appropriate for some purposes.

It can also get water marks off some types of woods
