cutting board comparison

This 12×16 maple wood cutting board is a great board for many smaller kitchens or more routine cooking tasks. For home cooks and smaller commercial kitchens, this board serves as a great prep work option and can be easily moved throughout the kitchen without being accidentally dropped or damaged. On top of this, as with all of our cutting boards and butcher blocks, our maple wood cutting boards are 2” thick which makes them incredibly durable as well. 

This is particularly useful as it means that your board can withstand potential fall and water damage, daily use, and both meat and vegetable prep without breaking, chipping, warping, or cracking apart. 

Maple is a very bright and clean wood that has tremendous strength as a cutting board. It will remain stable and not tint with use. Maple has a Janka hardness scale rating of 1,450, making it one of the hardest domestic woods on the market. This is why it is one of the best woods for cutting boards. Not only is it visually stunning with its unique swirl and bird’s eye patterns but it is also highly durable and shock absorbent. 

Furthermore, maple also self heals meaning that any cut grooves made in your board from your chef’s knives will slowly repair themselves. This is particularly useful as it prevents your board from contaminating your food or making you sick. In cheaper wood and plastic cutting boards, these grooves serve as perfect places for food particles to become stuck and contaminate any other food cut on the board. This can lead to food poisoning and foodborne illness easily. However, with a self healing board, this easily becomes a non-issue. 

Maple is most commonly used for hardwood flooring, kitchen cabinets, countertops, furniture, construction work, guitar bodies, gun stocks, and other handmade items like bowls, art, and, ofcourse, cutting boards and butcher blocks. This is because maple is cost-effective and sustainable to manufacture. Maple takes very little time and effort to grow and use for countless projects and is also long-lasting and incredibly strong. 

With all of this said, it’s clear to see why maple boards are so popular with professional chefs, home cooks, and caterers all at once. 

All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.
