I would like to find a wood cutting board that will last around 3-5 years of moderate to heavy use.
I'm tired of spending $100+ on wood cutting boards that end up either warping horribly or coming apart at glue lines. The bamboo ones seem to just splinter and fall apart, while my large block (walnut?) was cracked, warped and unusable after 2 years.
Cook's Illustrated recently updated their picks, with this
ProTeak in first. I have also seen this
acacia one that looks nice. After buying so many boards, and eventually being disappointed, I am hoping people here have some insight.
So, what is the most durable, long-lasting and large (24x18 or along those lines) wood cutting board you know of? I will say a limit of $100, but if there is something life-changing and spectacular that is more than that, I would be willing to reconsider. It should look nice too since it will have a permanent place on the counter.
