I replaced an old plastic board and an old glass cutting board with this one and I wish I had done it sooner. I love that there are so many mats. You don’t just get one for meats and one for veggies. There are separate mats for beef, chicken, fish, vegetables, cheese, bread and one general mat with no picture designated for serving. Not only are the mats colour coded, they have a small picture in one corner designating what food group they are to be used for which is great for my kids. The mats perform just as well on the counter as they do on the cutting board. We have very sharp expensive knives and I haven’t noticed any dulling of the knives or any damage to the mats. I also love how the mats are stored in the back of the cutting board. Brilliant. The last thing I need is to have more things cluttering up my counters or drawers. Lastly, the size is great. I was concerned because I didn’t want to end up with a small cutting board and this one is nice and large. I haven’t had the board long enough to see if it will warrant oiling but picked up a bottle of oil just in case.
Still as happy with it as when I purchased it. Some of the mats have become bowed, but I believe that’s a result of my “creative” dishwasher loading. I take advantage of their flexibility to cram as much stuff in one load as I can, which probably I shouldn’t do.
