How do I tell the difference between an Andiamo Market cutting board and an Andiamo Market charcuterie board?

  • Andiamo Market cutting boards can be used as cutting boards and / or charcuterie boards.
  • Andiamo Market charcuterie boards have 90-degree edges.  
  • Andiamo Market charcuterie boards should not be used as cutting boards.
What’s the difference between edge grain cutting boards and end grain cutting boards?

Edge grain

  • Edge grain is also referred to as long grain or side grain.
  • The full length of the wood rails span the entire length of the board.
  • Edge grain is the most durable grain orientation. 

End grain

  • End pieces of the wood rails are used to make end grain cutting boards.
  • End grain cutting boards have a more complex structural makeup and come at a higher cost than edge grain counterparts. 
  • End grain cutting boards will distress at a slower pace over time than edge grain boards. 
  • End grain cutting boards will release evaporating oils at a faster rate and therefore require more frequent oiling than edge grain boards.
What is a live edge board?
  • A live edge board retains the natural beauty of the tree.
  • Rather than sharp clean lines, the natural edge is left on at least one side of the board.
Do I use the same cutting board for preparing raw meat and vegetables?

Important considerations when preparing raw meat:

  • It’s advised to use separate cutting boards for different types of food preparation, to protect against cross contamination. Use one cutting board for raw meat, a separate for cooked meat, and a separate board for chopping fruits and vegetables.
  • Immediately and thoroughly clean your cutting board after cutting raw meat.
How do I clean my cutting / charcuterie board?

  • Air dry completely before you store the board.
