Our Cutting Boards
Our customized replacement cutting boards are made to specifically fit any food space preparation area. Sean works hard to guarantee that his customers are satisfied with their cutting boards by making the cutting boards himself; he doesn’t sell boards from other brands or companies. With this mindset, each cutting board is priced by the inch, making our cutting boards cheaper than any of the online competition. Our ability to include our precision softedge treatment at no cost to you also helps us beat out the competition price-wise. You simply tell us the details, and we make the cutting board.
Cutting Board Werks currently uses only two types of material for its cutting boards: high density polyethylene, or HDPE, and Richlite. HDPE is acid, chemical and corrosion resistant, lightweight, dishwasher safe, easily cleanable and doesn’t absorb moisture.
The Richlite boards are made up of a paper-composite fiber that is often used for removing bread or pizzas from a hot oven. Richlite is stain and warp resistant, as well as bending, chipping and cracking resistant, and the material is meant for high-heat applications. Richlite comes on only one color: natural brown.
Cutting Board Werks hopes to one day implement other materials for the cutting boards, such as wood.
Each of our cutting boards receives precision softedge treatment at no added cost to you. The softedge treatment has three options: square with eased edges, radiused edges or full bull-nose edges.
Colors and Replacing the Boards
Even though most cutting boards are known for their natural white color, Cutting Board Werks offers a rainbow of options for clients, depending on the different foods that will be cut on the boards. The different colors are to help avoid cross-contamination of food products.
Natural white = dairy and cheese
Red = raw meat
Yellow = raw poultry
Green = produce, fruits and vegetables
Blue = raw fish or seafood
Beige = cooked meat
Black = bread and grain – also popular with sushi chefs*
As with any cutting board, no matter the material, the board eventually needs replacing, a task that Cutting Board Werks is more than happy to assist with. We can offer replacement reminders specific to your previous board order so you don’t have to worry about the hassle of reordering. Even though there is no set time limit on when to replace a cutting board, boards should be replaced once it becomes difficult to clean or the board has deep grooves that can house bacteria. Make sure your board meets the health code and is clean.
Other Options and Shipping
Cutting Board Werks also offers several options along with the customized cutting boards. We can sell pre-cut boards in standard sizes (7×10, 9×12, 12×18, 18×24 and 24×30 in all colors with 3/8” and 1/2” thickness), OEM replacement boards and HDPE sheets in two sizes: 4×8 and 5×10 feet. For the OEM replacement boards, please have the model or part number ready when you are ordering.
For local clients in the Greater Sacramento Metro area, Cutting Board Werks has a next-day shipping guarantee so that customers don’t have to wait long to receive their cutting boards. Sean is working on a shipping method for long-distance clients.
