This beautiful 2” thick 10×20 cherry wood cutting board will fit great in your kitchen and performs well! Cherry is a very warm wood that will darken a bit as it gets more seasoned. When you first receive your cherry wood cutting board, the color is likely to be a beautiful salmon color and, over time, not only will your board become richer in color and more visually appealing but stronger as well.
The durability of cherry wood makes it perfect for hardwood flooring, kitchen cabinets, countertops, furniture, guitars, skateboards, and construction. This is also one of the main reasons we chose to utilize this strong and self-healing material for our top-of-the-line cutting boards and butcher blocks.
Cherry’s self-healing properties make it ideal for butcher blocks and cutting boards as knife scores on the board’s surface are nowhere near as dangerous when they slowly repair themselves. When using a plastic or cheap wood cutting board, the grooves made from frequent cutting can lead to food particles getting stuck in the board and infecting any food cut on the board moving forward. This can lead to foodborne illnesses and force you to buy a new cutting board in a fraction of the time you would when using a high-quality cherry wood cutting board instead.
While your board self-heals and darkens, it also becomes more durable over time as well. Cherry wood has a Janka hardness rating between 950 lbf (4,200 N) and 995 lbf (4,430 N) depending on whether it is black cherry or Brazilian cherry. This makes it one of the most durable and sturdy wood materials on the market and ensures that your cutting board can handle being used daily and even dropped in a fast-paced kitchen setting as well without breaking, warping, or cracking.
On top of its durability and cost-effective nature, cherry wood is also a sustainable resource. This means that you can rest easy knowing your cutting board actually helps the environment as well. Connecting with nature and steering clear of harmful plastic butcher blocks and boards is yet another way our products stand out in the crowd.
