Reviews

It helps.DonaHave a double sink and this fits perfectly over one for extra space or use next to the open sink for whatever. Cheap alternative and good quality. 5
SplintersSubbuSealed it twice as recommended with Walnut oil. The board looked great. But after a few uses, I am noticing that there are splinters on most of the surface. Wood is too rough and splinters may not be safe. Will return it. 1
Bleeds Finish on White CountertopsEboneeI love the look of this cutting board but I have washed it 6 times and it still bleeds the finish on my countertops and on the sponges I use to wash them with.1
Nice but don’t get it wetChrisI have 2 of these and they are nice. Someone left a wet towel on one and it started to come apart. It’s a little difficult to oil but they are nice cutting boards.3
Love the thoughtTaraLoved the thought of it. Fit my sink perfect. Split after having it 2 days.1
Nice cutting board and serves dual purposeKevinIt doesn’t quite fit the exact dimensions of my kitchen sink top (a little larger than one side) but it is otherwise excellent and a great way to hide dirty dishes when you have unexpected company, lol4
SplintersAlexIt fits my sink and has enough surface for doing a decent amount of prep work. I sealed it with oil (several coats, rather than the recommended single coat) and the seal is holding up. On the other hand, the wood was not properly sanded during manufacturing and is still leaving splinters coming up after a week of use. Would not recommend for purchase.1
It’s cool in theoryRobertIt’s cool fits the sink but it is very coarse and not easy to wash. You can feel that bacteria can get into this easily3
Prepared as instructions, oil’d,24 hrs etc, rinsed once and now splittersAnnaI prepared the cutting board as instructed. Cut an onion , bell peppers and dripped pancake mix on it so I rinsed the board. When it dried, it splintered and had a rough surface. Basically the grain “popped”. The grain should have been “popped” and sanded during manufacturing. Something got missed. Will be returning. Looking at the reviews, this has a frequency of happening.1
Cutting board over sinkGladysPerfect for additional working space5
Splinters in food!BetsyReally disappointed in this cutting board. We pre-treated with oil (per the instructions) and even tried sanding it down on our own, but the wood is too rough and unfinished to be safe for use - when we scrape the chopped food off into a dish, bowl or pan, we scrape splinters from the board along with it.1
Sink/countertop extensionCamiI am not using this as a cutting board but an ext of counter. Love it need to do adjustments to fix my old sink size; not the average size. Buying more for gifts5
Over sink cutting boardCynthiaGreat size, looks nice, nut is rough with tiny splinters. I will have to. Micro sand it before using it.3
Attractive, well-made cutting board ideal for my RVThomasI bought this cutting board on recommendation from a FB group for GeoPro travel trailers. This board was nearly perfect dimensions are a great price (cheaper than making it yourself). I did have to use a router to make it perfect, but that part was pretty easy.5
SplintersAngelRight out of the packaging, the cutting board was rough with splinters all over. I sanded it, used it, then washed it. The splinters came back. This cutting board fits over my sink and it gives a bit more surface area to work on, buy it's unusable with the splintering.1
Over sink cutting BoardKennethThis cutting fits over our sink perfectly.5
Over the years I haveIngridOver the years I have acquired many of these boards . They are the best in resilience, appearance and utility.5

DiscoloringIdaI washed the chopping board before I use it, the water turned brown, when I wiped the board with paper towel, the paper turned all brown, very weird and scary, the wood looks firm but the discoloring makes me very worried about the quality...2
Works great! I use itStephanieWorks great! I use it to cover part of my sink for more counter space.5

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA, we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.
