I did a lot of research before making this purchase. I have several plastic cutting boards for cutting meat, chicken, fish etc, but I wanted a heavy duty nice thick wooden butcher block to leave out on the counter for everyday use. I absolutely LOVE this block. It took about 2 1/2 bottles (pint size I think) of mineral oil to do the initial seasoning because of the end grain (buy it at a drug store) but worth the effort if it prevents it from splitting. The end grain totally hides knife marks well, so although I've only had it about a month or two, I use it everyday and it looks brand new. I did place a silpat mat underneath because in spite of it's hefty weight, it did slide a bit on my slick countertop.
