Do we know how much they will hold? Did I miss something. They do look on the small side, but it's hard to tell in a picture.
If we could get actual bowl capacity that would be great.



Overall Dimensions: 22"x16.5"x2.2"
Prep Bowl Dimensions: Dia 4" x H 2"
Prep Bowl Capacity: 10.5 oz.

Ding ding! We have a winner. This is exactly what I was thinking. Spoken like someone who actually cooks - not an armchair chef on woot!

Also agree that end-grain maple would be preferred, but it gets expensive to do it right!

Is the glue non-toxic?

If your concern is about formaldehyde which is sometimes raised, don't worry about it. Your body and most living things already produce formaldehyde. This became one of the scare tactics of the anti-vax group because some vaccines (and many OTC drugs, too) use formaldehyde, and it sounds scary because it's used in embalming. But the amounts in medicines, or a cutting block's glue, is completely harmless.

Note the size of the bowls compared to the apple - pretty small.

The overall height of the board including feet is 2.25", so the board itself looks like 1.75". Maybe the cups are 1.5"? That makes 3.5x1.5=14.4 cubic inches, which is 8 fluid ounces, or: one cup.



The specs are given: the cups are 4' by 2" and hold 10.8 fl oz.

98% of sales of the brand Core are through TJ Maxx and woot because their stuff is below average quality at above average price.



It doesn't cost as much as their saying it does, but it doesn't cost all that much less. It's still a pretty good deal if you want one of those.

I would not cut up meat on it,only veggies. I feel safer cutting up chicken etc on plastic cutting boards. But thats just my preference.

Well, I got mine today. If I could ever fall in love with a cutting board, this would be it. Majestic is a good word. This thing is enormous and solid and full of awesome. I have it on my counter in a portrait orientation with the bowls at the top - and they are currently holding my cooking spray bottle, my olive oil bottle, and my butter jar, to save counter space. And there's still double the surface area of my old cutting board to work with. Major win with this one.

Our cutting board came today - I guess I really needed to read the SIZE of it better! This thing is Giant! It's solid too - seems well built! I'm sure the hubby (head chef of the household) will put it to good use!

Mine arrived yesterday, and I absolutely love it!
It's more than just a "cutting board"....more like a great work surface.
Plenty of room for lots of chopping, and the bowls are plenty large enough to hold whatever you chop.
Wish I'd bought 3 of them...for me, my daughter, and my daughter-in-law.
Alas, I will be the only one to enjoy the one that I did get.

It's pretty big and is fairly heavy; not a cheap piece of wood either. I just got mine and love it. I'm going to just leave it on my kitchen counter and use it as needed. The cups will hold quite a bit. This was a great price for this high quality board..very nice!
