Epicurean was established in 2004 out of a company making eco-friendly skate parks. The wood composite that was used in the ramps is extremely durable, non-porous, food and dishwasher safe. The company started producing chopping boards from the excess material to gift to family and friends. As demand soared, Epicurean began producing a variety of products using this wood composite.
The Epicurean chopping boards and kitchen utensils are made out of materials that are both durable and eco-friendly. Made of Richlite, a lightweight, durable.wood fibre composite. The company uses production processes that minimise and recycle waste.
Epicurean wood fibre boards and utensils are non-porous and dishwasher safe. They do not harbour bacteria or absorb flavours and odours and are therefore very hygienic. In addition, cutting on an Epicurean board keeps the knife's edge sharp for longer as it is easy on the knife. The boards are also heat resistant to 175°C, making it possible to use as a trivet. Convenient corner hole for hanging.
Easy to maintain and will last for years.
Epicurean cutting boards and utensils are exclusively manufactured in the United States of America.
Frequently asked Questions
What are the boards made of?
Richlite, a lightweight, durable wood fibre composite.
Are the boards food safe?
Yes, the cutting surfaces are BPA free
Are the boards dishwasher safe?
How do I prevent the board from warping and how can I correct this?
The cutting surfaces should be stored on edge rather than flat when not in use. If stored flat, moisture (usually residual water left from washing by hand or in the dishwasher) becomes trapped underneath and as the moisture tries to escape it gets trapped underneath causing the board to warp. To ‘counter warp’ the board, wash your board, leave a bit of moisture on the board and lay it on the opposite side for a day or so to level out the warp.
Will my Epicurean cutting surface stain?
The cutting surfaces are stain-resistant. However, certain foods that are oily, acidic and highly pigmented can stain the board. To remove stubborn stains, try using a non-abrasive household cleaner.
What is the best way to maintain the board? Wash with hot soapy water or put in the dishwasher. We stock Epicurean Board Butter - a proprietary blend of mineral oil and beeswax to condition and maintain the boards.
