Epicurean Cutting Boards are made from Richlite, an eco-friendly, natural wood fiber from certified U.S. sustainability managed forests. Approved by the NSF (National Sanitary Foundation), durable Richlite resists and prohibits bacterial growth. Environmentally-friendly Richlite has been demanded by chefs in restaurants and commercial kitchens worldwide for over 40 years. Richlite won't dull knives, are maintenance free, require no bleaching or oiling and can be cleaned in the dishwasher. With a heat resistance of up to 350 degrees F, Epicurean Cutting Boards can double as a trivet and take on a hot pot without showing a blemish.
