Epicurean is a way of life-a reflection of our personal values and those of our customers. Every Epicurean cutting board and kitchen accessory is made with naturally renewable materials in an environmentally responsible way. Our products are well-designed, practical, casual tools that feel at home in any kitchen. Today, Epicurean cutting boards, kitchen tools and utensils are at the center of everyday life for both the casual cooks and seasoned gourmets. We pride ourselves on original designs that are simple, functional and beyond trend. Every Epicurean product is made in the U. S. A., creating good jobs and strengthening the economy. Our cutting boards and tools get their natural look and texture from our exclusive material called Richlite, a paper composite which is non-porous, dishwasher safe, durable and easy on knives. It has been used in commercial kitchen and restaurants for over 75 years and meets the highest standards of cooks and chefs worldwide. Epicurean took their traditional handy board and made it a little more "special". The Riveted Handy Series features slate-colored scales to add comfort and strength to the handles. Each scale is fastened to the boards by hand with custom brass rivets made in Chicago, especially for Epicurean. Each board is made in the USA, and is dishwasher safe.
