I am in the market to buy an end grain cutting board... I was thinking of getting a walnut board end grain board. Does anybody have any reviews or thoughts about the boards at http://www.endgraincuttingboard... . I cannot seem to find reviews for these boards from this site, however they look quite nice though.
Here are the questions I have, any help would be great!
What should I look for in an end grain board? I’m quite confused as there are too many choices out there and hundreds of different sites.
Is walnut a good choice as far as material? It looks too nice , will it get ruined? Is it too hard/soft?
Is it worth the money to get an end grain board vs edge grain?
If I get one with a gravy channel is that difficult to clean?
They say they use mineral oil and beeswax on them, is that normal? Or should it be sealed with a clear coating of some sort?
Should I get a cutting board with legs / feet on it? Or is it better to have it without feet so I can flip the board over?
Any recommendations would be great!
