This cutting board is made to maximize convenience and minimize accidents. It's made from food-grade polypropylene, which can be easily cleaned. The board has three stainless steel spikes, engineered to keep food in place for cutting. Therefore, you don't need to keep your fingers on what is being cut, meaning those of us who are accident prone won't be hurt. Standing on 4 non-skid feet this cutting board will never move, preventing spills and messes from occurring in the kitchen.
