[Bay] Epicurean Cutting Boards - All on sale and further discounts!

There was a previous thread of people buying the Epicurean cutting boards at regular price from Amazon (epicurean-prep-series-2-3pc-cutting-boa ... a-1827555/) - so when I saw them actually on sale I thought I would post.

The Bay has them (unfortunately today is the last day):
http://www.thebay.com/webapp/wcs/stores ... an&x=0&y=0

For example, the pack of cutting boards referenced in the above post is only $27.99 (from $39.99).

You can also combine with the 15% off discount code (Code: STUDY) from another thread for more savings: https://twitter.com/hudsonsbay/status/6 ... 2861770753

Then you can combine with ebates for an additional 5% off.


EDIT: In case you want to thank the person for the 15% off code here is his thread: bay-15-off-almost-everything-online-only-1844391/

Thanks OP.
I don't know about their spoons or other accessories, but their boards are great.

What makes these "special" vs a bamboo cutting board?

Bamboo is harder on your knives, are not dishwasher friendly, and are made up of many small pieces = lots of glue (if that's an issue to you).
They are also more porous.

These cutting boards are awesome. Not really for show, but very functional.

Agreed. These boards are awesome. They are fast boards that are easy on your knives. They don't gouge, and they are dishwasher safe. I'm careless with my boards, often leaving them in water. These will warp but then throw them in the washer and they straighten right out.

Just FYI, these are routinely $30 at Homesense.

According to this guy, these boards are hard on knives as well: http://kitchenknifeguru.com/cutting-boa ... nd-others/ I think my $20 set of plastic boards from Costco will do for now. If I fancy something more epicurean, I'll probably just go for real wood, whose only downside seems to be the hand-wash only requirement. As for the glue thing, these Epicurean boards are basically laminates made with phenolic resin which is highly toxic before curing, but food-safe once cured. These Epicurean boards are essentially laminated paper, not that different from certain types of exterior plywood. I wouldn't worry too much either about the small amounts of wood glue used to bond pieces of wood or bamboo, as they should also be food safe.

I've owned a lot of cutting boards and these are hands down the best. Good price. Get the non-slip ones with the silicon edges. They are available winners, etc for a similar price, but this is a pretty good deal with the coupons and ebates.

If you do a lot of chopping they are hard on knives, but then you need a chopping block. These are cutting boards.

These boards come from a reputable manufacturer, the glue should not be an issue. Bamboo boards you need to be more careful in where they are made and what material was used. Similar to the Lodge vs no-name cast iron... you're taking a chance.

Anyway, I've had success with them - same as others in this thread. Same as many restaurants. For the price it's worth giving them a shot, otherwise you'll never really know.

+1 on the silicon edges, but you can always use a piece of rubber shelf liner you buy at the Dollar Store. Not as convenient, but does the job.

The silicon edges also allow a little more flex which some people like.

We have the kitchen series ones which we really like:
http://www.thebay.com/webapp/wcs/stores ... 10806n--24

We are going to try their "prep" series since they are a lot cheaper:
http://www.thebay.com/webapp/wcs/stores ... pack01--24


Not sure what the difference is going to be - when the amazon.ca thread came up we tried to find the difference but it wasn't clear. The ones with the non-slip feet are great too - we just wanted a smooth cutting board so went without.


If still in stock I would personally buy a couple - it's a great price and having a couple different sizes is really nice. With ebates and the twitter 15% off, the biggest board should be 22.60 + GST, or almost 50% off.

Bought a 20x20x3 end grain board that lives on my counter and love it. Super sanitary, will last decades and looks great. I have a few of the smaller epicure boards for raw meats and it's nice their dishwasher safe and reasonable on knives.

If you cut/cook a lot though, I'd highly recommend investing in an end grain board, they're amazing

Right now I'm using low quality cutting boards. As you mentioned, I also love cooking and am trying to cook more at home (versus eating outside). How many boards and what size of boards would you recommend? I want to take advantage of this sale and be "future proof" with not having to buy any more cutting boards in the next couple of years. TIA!

I hear ya on being "future proof" which is why I bought a beast of a board that will live longer than me. In terms of size, I often say buy the biggest you can manage as more work room is always a good thing. I have 2 epicurean boards that are roughly 14x10 (sorry out at the moment) that I use for regular meat jobs and then use my big bugger for everything else. Like that i can have bowls on the side of it to push off the ingredients in to as i prep and also I don't have to sharpen my knives as often due to the end grain.

This is the big one i got. Didn't get it from amazon but gives you an idea: http://www.amazon.ca/Catskill-Craftsmen ... super+slab
