Wood Cutting Boards

If you cook even occasionally, you know that the cutting board is an essential kitchen tool. It protects your counters and provides a sturdy surface for chopping fruits and vegetables and slicing meat, fish and poultry. While you can find them made from a variety of materials, wood cutting boards tend to be the most traditional. But, even as such basic tools, wood cutting boards are not one size fits all. That is why Williams-Sonoma offers a variety of styles, shapes and sizes. You are sure to find the perfect one to match both your cooking skill level and your kitchen decor.

Wood cutting boards tend to be heavier than other styles, and the wooden surface is gentler on your knives. They tend to last longer than their counterparts made from other materials, and they match practically any style. Whether your kitchen is rustic, modern or something in between, a wood cutting board would be the perfect complement.

When choosing a cutting board, size matters. You want to make sure it is large enough to fit your favorite knives and ingredients, but it must also fit comfortably on your countertop. Many professional chefs and home cooks alike believe the biggest cutting board your kitchen can accommodate is the best option. With a larger surface, you can chop multiple items without stopping to move your food pieces to another bowl or dish.

Wood chopping boards weigh more than those made from other materials, which mean less slippage and a sturdier surface while you chop. Just make sure you do not choose one that is too heavy for you to handle as all cutting boards should be washed with soap and warm water after each use.

You will find that many of our wood cutting boards offer a few extra features beyond a smooth flat surface. Many have small wells around the edges to prevent juices from flowing over onto your countertop. Some may be reversible with one side more suitable for chopping meats and the other for chopping fruits and vegetables. Some wood chopping boards have lips on the edges to help you steady them against your counter.

No matter which of our wood chopping boards you select, expect quality craftsmanship. Typically made from maple, cherry or walnut, you will find cutting boards in a variety of shades. In addition to your typical rectangular cutting board, square blocks, ovals, circles, paddles and even animal shapes are available. We also offer the option to monogram your wood cutting board for that extra personal touch.
