I have had my fair share of cutting boards. This particular one is one of (if not THE) highest quality board that I have owned. It is thick, sturdy, and overall well constructed. It has a nice fresh bamboo scent to it as well - which is noticeable once you unwrap the plastic from it (which is a bonus to me). The board is a bit larger in size as it measures 12x18 inches so putting it away could be a bit more difficult to store if you're limited on space, however, most cabinets should accommodate it with no problems. I am pleased with how nice the board is, the quality, and honestly, believe it will last a lot longer than some of the other boards I have purchased in the past.
