Why we love it‘The extra-large surface area is great for when I’m preparing lots of ingredients at once, carving meat, or kneading dough. It’s relatively slim—and beautiful to look at, so I store it on my counter just behind the hob, where it’s easy to reach for. This is important because I use it everyday.’
About The Brand
Epicurean started as an offshoot of a company making skateboard ramps for local parks in the state of Wisconsin, USA, where they are still manufactured. The founders used the leftover material—a hard-wearing wood composite—to make chopping boards for friends and family, who raved about them so enthusiastically that they found their way into kitchens in the UK. The material is so popular that Epicurean also uses it to make cooking spoons, spatulas, and other kitchen accessories.
We love that this material is easy on your knife blades, resisting deep grooves where bacteria can flourish, as well as dishwasher-safe. (It’s very easy to clean in the sink too, as the smoothness ensures food and odours don’t stick.) Since they are heat safe up to 176C, you can place hot pans and lids on them while preparing or serving food. The stackable straight-edge design is exclusive to us in the UK.Shop Epicurean
