£4.50 not £4.5

I got one of these a few nights ago, I think they're great for the price

Original Poster

the scissors you see in the bottom of picture were for £1.80

Treaaaaat!

What size is this?

Which store?

seen the label for these the last two times i have been in but there all gone

great price. i just hope this thread doesn't descend into an argument about what's the most hygenic. Who cares!

Has the wood come from renewable sources? oO

The same renewable resources as the meat you chop up on it I should think. oO

mumbojumbo

That sounds a bit fishy.

I got a similar one from Homebase for this price a long time ago and it's the best thing I ever bought. Mind you, mine is reversible with one side having a groove around the edge for meat juices. Before anyone says anything, I have about 10 different chopping boards for different things but I do particularly love my wooden one.

If you oil them regularly they last a lifetime. Olive oil, vegetable oil, any of those sort will do. Just pour some over the top, and rub in. If you use olive oil it softens your hands too.

Bought one when they were 50% off :-( but well worth it, even then. Tempted to buy another, for that price.

They are made from Rubberwood which is plantation grown and until recently was burned after the trees stopped producing latex so now it's actually more eco friendly than before!

You shouldn't submerge them inm water when washing. Wipe them well or better still use a stiff wire brush (like a butcher does) then wipe them.

Great find, been wanting one of these. Off to my local sainsbury's (Or rather I'm getting the girlfriend to) to see if I can get one.

I bought one of these ages ago and find it's really good. It gets used every day and we've no cracks in it. If they had any in my local shop I'd have bought another one.

Oh no, don't start that one again.

Vegetable oil, olive oil etc. go rancid after a while and will make your food taste dodgy. The only oil you should use *apparently* use is "tung oil" (or "mineral oil" to give it it's American name).

yeh we have solid oak worktops at home and you should only use Tung oil every so often.
i wouldnt say its needed for a chopping board but at £4.50 i suppose you won't mind if you have to replace it after a year or so
Mines still in the wrapper so i couldnt tell you what its like

Seems the Taunton sainsbury's isn't doing this deal currently

with any wooden chopping

With all wood it will dry out. You can stick it in a sink (or bath if it wont fit) to soak it, then place a wet tea towel over it overnight. this will expand the wood and seal the cracks.

thats what butchers do with the blocks

£4.50 not £4.5



What's your point? oO

4.5 = 4.50
4.05 = 4.05

nice spot.

Dutch Oil, 3 coats, 6 hours apart.

just been to my local and they are still £15. its one of those massive stores as well. anyone had luck aside from the poster?

Had 3 in London Colney, now only 1 left... Cheers OP (nearly bought at 50% at xmas, lucky i waited!)

I bought one of these a few years ago and made the mistake of placing my slow cooker on it. Doh!

Don't make the same mistake.

The wood split apart at the joints in quite a big area.

Otherwise it is a great board, I will pop into our local store tomorrow for one.

Hmm...what a coincidence! I have a duck too but mine takes real exception to being wiped down with anything other than towels made from the finest Egyptian cotton.

I stand corrected, there are! But they're in a completely seperate part of the store to the homeware stuff.

A real butcher planes his wooden block every evening before going home, but you can't really do this with a small one at home.

Butchers don't use wirebrushes they shave them

I bought one from Sainsburys in Flint today. Seems really good quality. V. pleased

No. I live at home & so does my kitchen. I'm confused.

Why so many chopping boards?????? surely you can use one for meat and one for veg rather than one for carrots, one for chicken, one for potatoes, one for lamb, one for............... do you have a board a special chopping board for the fruit too:)
