Product reviewed: JK Adams Porter Walnut End Grain Board
I was super excited to try this cutting board, a chance to feature its beauty and function in the kitchen. As a dietitian, I write recipes and have been practicing food photography for my blog so I’m always looking for practical kitchen tools that also offer style. I was excited to see firsthand how the JK Adams Porter Walnut End Grain Board can go straight from cutting to serving.
Made with high-quality American walnut with a teak oil finish, the board has contrasting brown hues that make it a beautiful accessory on the kitchen counter. It also has undercut handles that allow for easy serving and transporting once you’re done preparing food. The board is a great size (17-by-12-by-1.5 inches) for cutting, displaying and serving foods, too.
When this cutting board arrived at my home, it was packaged in a sleek box with a card that detailed care instructions. I’m glad I read it because the board cannot go in the dishwasher and I don’t want to do anything to ruin this beautiful piece!
I placed the cutting board on my kitchen counter, slid my hand across its glossy finish and was pleasantly surprised with how smooth it is. I immediately cut an apple on the board, then easily lifted the board using its handles to take to my kitchen table. The undercut handles also are an easy way to slide cut foods onto a dish.
I also used this cutting board to make a cheese board, a fun appetizer to serve guests that impresses with little effort. All you have to do is slice or cut cheese into cubes, cut fruit and vegetables, display on the cutting board and enjoy!
As a dietitian, I’m always looking for ways to reduce time in the kitchen and offer colorful fruits and vegetables in an appealing way. This cutting board saves me time because I don’t need to grab a serving plate and wash extra dishes. A quick gentle wash and the cutting board is clean. Be sure to towel-dry the cutting board and not let water sit on it for long periods of time.
The JK Adams End Grain Cutting Board isn’t like your ordinary cutting board. I definitely would recommend it to a friend or client who is looking for a board that functions well, looks great and has multiple uses.
