If there was one item that every kitchen needs it is a great cutting board. In fact you actually need several of them and when you find one that not only works well but looks amazing then you leave it out all the time. Of course in my house that is if Ma will give the dang thing up for me to use because it just looks too purty to even think about messing up. It’s a cutting board!! Come On!!! The kids got a huge kick out of the fact that the Atreus Oak Cutting Board had to go through customs before it got here. They love when we get products from other parts of the world.
The Atreus Cutting Board is 100% oak and is handmade which is something I have never had before. It is a little on the heavy side, much heavier than most previous cutting boards but I think that really adds to the appeal of it. It isn’t so heavy that I can’t lift it however. I use it for cutting vegetables rather than meats in my kitchen since I have particular boards for that.
The handle is great and I can use it when I need to move my chopped veggies into the pot or bowl. Although my uncle made a remark that he could put a hole in the handle so I could hang it if I wanted to. Actually the first thing I said about this cutting board was that it would make an awesome paddle! No, I’m not gonna beat my kids with it although I swear there are times when they probably need it. It just reminded me a paddle a teacher had when I was in middle school. You know what I’m talking about, the one that hung by their desk daring you to do something wrong.
It is pretty thick as well which is probably what added to the weight. There are several sizes available and this is the smallest one. One thing I noticed though is that when you are choosing a size the design on some change. The design of the handle actually but I loved this one and am thankful that I was given it to review.
