Paperstone Cutting Boards (Lamson GoodNow)

Just wanted to get opinions on paperstone cutting boards. I know the company Preserve makes some that have recieved lukewarm reviews on amazon (mostly due to an extremely adhesive sticker it seems) as does Lamson & Goodnow.

I am interested to know if anyone has tried the Lamson & Goodnow or Preserve product and how they liked it.

Also wanted to know if there was any weird smell or film with them, as I have heard this is an issue sometimes with epicurean boards (these are not paperstone) until you've washed them several times.

  1. I've heard about the smell but never experienced it on my epicureans. I have 10 of them, I ran out of cutie boards one night and in a fit of rage bought 7 more so it would never happen again. All of them epicurean and I love them!

      Talk about rage. :)

        Best rash decision I ever made. Pizza night with friends goes through quite a few cutting boards :)

    2. I have owned and used the Epicurean cutting board for a good duration of my life. I have never smelled anything.... or it never bothered me enough for me to notice.

        Interesting. Maybe I am confusing them with something else, I thought I remembered reading something to that effect in several reviews when i was looking into cutting boards before.

          I don't not mean they are wrong. They could be right.

          Everyone's sensitivity level is different. For example, I have not been bothered by the so called metal taste from my cast iron and carbon steel cookware. Meanwhile, many people hate it. In addition, I was speaking about my experience with an Epicurean cutting board, which can be different than a Lamson Paperstone cutting board.

      2. I purchased two Paperstone cutting boards three or four years ago and they've become the centerpiece of my kitchen. High-quality function, easy to clean, durable . . . and the list goes on. Two other members of my family purchased them after seeing and using mine. Highly recommended.
