Stainless steel cutting boards are durable, long-lasting and unique in that they are made from the most widely used materials in the foodservice industry. Stainless steel will also match your other kitchen appliances while on the counter not in use. Also, a perfect trivet for a hot pot to protect your counters. The use of the board will create scratches that with continued use will patina into a work of art. If you can't wait, you can also create your own patina using a scrubbing pad. Use food safe stainless steel cleaner to remove other residue and fingerprints. Clear square resting feet prevent scuffing and marring on the counter.
