This is one heck of a carving board!  Wouldn’t you agree?


We used this carving board for our 24 lb. turkey on Thanksgiving Day and the pyramid-cut surface in the center really worked to keep the turkey in place.  Normally, Dave would put the turkey on a large plastic platter and the turkey would slide all over the place, making it difficult to carve as well as having overflowing juice spills on the counter.  This pyramid-cut surface with the surrounding groove is a great feature!


Some of the juice from the turkey remained in the surrounding groove and the rest of it was collected in the drip pan.


The drip pan is well made and slides under the carving board with ease.


If you have enough counter space, you can flip it over and use it for an everyday cutting board.


I had a lot of people in my kitchen on Thanksgiving Day, so I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of the cooked turkey before it was carved.  This photo shows how large the carving board is with a 24 lb. turkey on top.

To clean the board, I used a plastic vegetable brush with soap and water.  Dave had to help me rinse it over the sink because of its size and heaviness.  All in all, it made carving a breeze and it certainly was a conversation piece at our Thanksgiving!
