The Gripperwood Acacia Concave Carving and Cutting Board collection from Architec combines two innovative elements to bring you a carving and cutting board that you will reach for first and use for years to come. The patented, permanently bonded Gripper feet on the concave boards assures a slip-free work surface. The concave shape allows you to carve and cut your meat without worrying about the juice overflowing on your counter. The difference between traditional carving boards that catch juice in the perimeter trough, is the Architec's concave shape allows the meat to stay with its juice while it rests, ensuring a moist and tender cut. This Concave board will hold up to 1/2 Cup of liquid, so not one drop of that flavor filled juice will go to waste! All of our wood cutting boards should be hand washed in warm soapy water, without soaking and never washed in the dishwasher. For longer lasting performance and beauty, it is recommended to periodically apply a light coating mineral oil with a soft, clean cloth.
