I had asked for a cutting board, but didn't anticipate anything this huge. When I unwrapped it, I thought, "Err, yes, well, how nice. But it's simply too big to use!" Of course, I didn't say anything like that and wisely chose to show loving gratitude instead. I stored the thing in a gap between our refrigerator and a cabinet and didn't use it for a while.
Over the last few weeks, I've started bringing the monster out of its lair when I've needed to cut up big things like whole chickens and in doing so, I've fallen in love with it. It's so huge, you can cut up a chicken and then season the parts with flour all on the board, without having to even remove the scraps. Nothing gets on the counter top at all. It's like having a perfectly washable counter top that you can cut on. It may seem too big for your kitchen, but unless your place is really small, I'd highly recommend getting one.
