Canadian Tire doesn't allow negative review
The product in question is the Guy Fieri Non-Slip Cutting Board.
And the review I submitted:
[QUOTE]These cutting boards are terrible. I bought two and both were in the garbage within 30 days.
Sure they look good at first, but things start going downhill the moment you remove the plastic wrap. Hidden behind the paper is a sticker saying that you can't run them through the dishwasher and no cutting on the design side.
I should have returned them at this point, but I decided I could live with these limitations. What a mistake. After only a few times hand cleaning in the sink, I noticed they started to warp. At first it wasn't bad, but eventually they became so warped it was dangerous to chop items on as sometimes they would slip.
I continued using them figuring I should at least get some use out of them. After a few more cleanings the white plastic separated from the insides which turned out to be particle board! Honestly, I would highly recommend you spend a little more money and buy something else.[/QUOTE]

I suppose they can run their website any way they like, but they've lost me as a customer as a result. I already had a fairly low opinion of this retailer and now I realize I can't even trust the reviews posted online.
Update: The review was approved with the removal of the "dangerous" wording.
