It's an end grain board so if you're concerned about bacterial contamination, it's easier for it to get trapped in the pores of the wood. Generally, in food service, wood boards are only used for plant food cutting. If this is truly acacia, you wouldn't want to treat it with bleach after cutting animal foods on it to sanitize, because you'll likely be compromising the long term appearance and strength of the board. This is made of lots of pieces glued together, and harsh cleaners will weaken the glue over time.
Great points. I make end grain cutting boards. I have been using mine daily for 6 years. Worth noting It is best to treat them mineral spirits and seal with cutting board wax. Personally I have cut meat on it but I have been getting lazier about wax so I just so cooked meat.

But dude you paid $20, you can't even buy a bamboo thin one for 20 bucks!!! I paid $70 (EDIT: might have been $50, don't remember) for it, though I did sit there and hand picked the best looking one. Other shoppers were walking by thinking what's this dude doing.
Decent deal this for the average Joe, just expect it not to be professional grade.

If the person bought a $100+ cutting board on sale for $20, it's expected to be the quality of a $100 board, not a $20 one though.

I bought this for $20 when it was in sale last time. it didn't last well. The board split. I don't know if the one that I got is defective or if it's the nature of the board. link for reference.

Not a big fan of Acacia cutting boards. I find they split and don't last as long as a nice hard maple end grain. Still .. good price for one thats end grain. Would make a nice backup though for a primary.

The good old tomahawk rib eye I see. Not too shabby!

True story, I once stopped at this Steakhouse in Amarillo, TX since they had a Billboard advertising a 72oz sirloin steak. I told the server that I'm a ribeye kind of guy, so he then recommends me there biggest ribeye cut, a 59oz cowboy ribeye. Needless to say, when the finally brought it to my table, I was in a state of shock. The ribeye bone was as long as my arm! The meat on the ribeye was as big as a deflated football. And I'm talking NFL sized football. I told the waiter that there is no way that is 59oz! He laughed and said, "ya the chef cut your ribeye by hand since it's your first time here. He gave you a lil extra!"

I then ask him how many ounces does he think the ribeye is, and he takes one good glance and says "prolly around a 100, give or take".

Til this day, I still have nightmares and fantasies about that old ribeye.

May god bless that steak house in Amarillo, TX!

Also I disagree with how others are caring for these boards. I'd never use bleach. It's far too harsh if you want a board to last forever. Dries it out and will crack with time. Use a sea salt/half lemon/vinegar to disenfect/clean. Soapy rag with dish soap can also work. When you first get it. It will be dry! I had to use 2-3 bottles of mineral oil rubbed/ absorbed into one of mine before it stopped soaking it up. Mineral oil is good but some don't like it because it's also a laxative absorbed into the wood and not necessarily food grade. I use a quality oil (not vegetable because it will stink). Grapeseed oil works very well. Also after you get the board wet. Dry it. Oil both sides and store it on its side! It won't warp on you then. Finally... Wood end grain boards are far better sanitary wise than plastic. Plastic/poly etc. Glass dulls knives. Maple engrain is awesome because bacteria won't grow because any food that does get trapped in the grooves have no oxygen when the grooves close up and bacteria dies. Doesn't grow like with acrylic/plastic boards that don't seal back up. Restaurants use plastic because it's cheaper/easier to mass sanitize. And they are very light and convenient to use in a restaurant setting. Many professional chefs wouldn't go near plastic.

I think you meant mineral oil.

end grain is best for knives and this is a very nice size, but acacia is a very hard wood that doesn't age well even with proper care. this would be a good board for presentation, though a bit thick/heavy.

as for bacteria, end grain boards are your best bet. yes, the bacteria get easily sucked into the pores, but that is a good thing because they get starved if oxygen down there and die.

tl;dr: $40 for this is probably fair, but don't expect much. and don't buy if you have nice knives.

I don't think it's sharp enough...a knife might be better.

Dumb beggar logic. Pay me $20 for a swift kick in the butt. Only $20. Should charge you $180.
Whoa, since when did SD become so toxic? I'm just saying I was very happy with mine when I paid full price

I picked one of these last time they were on Clearance at Sam's for $19.91. The grain on the cutting board split within 3 weeks. Super disappointing because it did look beautiful until I took off the plastic wrap.
Had exact same experience. Wonder if this 40 bucks one Gonna be better quality than last year 20? Doubt it tho. Would buy a second one if its the same 20 bucks like last year.

I use it for baking only.

NO! if you do you need to wash the heck out if it each time and since you can't put it in the dishwasher why would you want to do that.

Per USDA: Both wooden and plastic cutting boards can be sanitized with a solution of 1 tablespoon of unscented, liquid chlorine bleach per gallon of water. Flood the surface with the bleach solution and allow it to stand for several minutes. Rinse with clear water and air dry or pat dry with clean paper towels.

How do you take care of this cutting board?
Buy mineral oil from Walmart. It is sold $2 per quart as a laxative in the pharmacy section.

However, you may consider a plastic cutting board as the cut marks better hold in the bacteria.vomit
