Calphalon end grain cutting board

Has anyone used this Calphalon end-grain cutting board (or its rectangular counterpart?) I'm looking for an end grain wooden cutting board, and this seems suitable and attractive, but I haven't heard anything good OR bad about it, which is making my decision harder.

Any feedback will be highly appreciated.

Had no idea Calphalon made anything other than pots and pans. Sorry, anchita, not much help here.

I've seen someone on TV use it, or a similar board. I think it was Martin Yan just last week on the Tyler Florence show.

Not familiar with that exact board, but I bought a similarly sized one to conserve counter space, and often wish I had a larger one. If you're cutting like three veggies you run out of room unless you clear the board in between.

I am not familiar with this board. I have a 36 x 36 butcher block table in storage, and a separate board for vegetables.

The separate 26 x 26 inch board is what I use now [with a smaller board] til I move to larger quarters. It is the 2 inch thick former maple top of a 1960's portable dishwasher.

I paid $1 for it at a used appliance repair shop.

very similar to ones I purchased (see http://discusscooking.com/viewtopic....=cutting+board

Only you can decide if the size and shape suit you. I have found mine to be very kind to knives and holds up will to serious chopping (doesn't get cut marks on the board). The weight alone should keep it from sliding - IMHO I don't think you really need feet on this heavy a board.

Thanks all, I finally went with this that a member at another forum very kindly pointed out to me as possibly having good value for money. The size seems fine for me, though I'll only know once I begin cutting on it. I didn't spend quite as much money as I thought I would, so even if it doesn't turn out as good as I expect it to, it won't be a big loss and will instruct me regarding a future purchase. But thanks for all the responses and info!
