Save your money, mass produced end grain cutting boards are rarely any good. This thing will warp and delaminate quickly.
That is a rather broad statement. Do you have several from this manufacturer? Is that where you got your data?
You weren't wrong. I just got and used mine yesterday. After I finished using it, I washed it immediately -- the board immediately warped into almost a C and it split all along the sides, making very audible cracking sounds. It kinda scared me because I didn't know what it was. While the warping has gone down slightly since last night, the splits are still very visible and obviously not going back into place. I'm hoping this is just supposed to happen and not a defect, and will eventually return to normal. I'll give it a few days and report back, not going to use it again until the warping has subsided.
I washed my board and it split within 3 minutes of beginning to dry. Also scared the ever-loving crap out of me! This thing is NOT going back to normal. There's a 1/4" gap in the wood and the wood itself has also begun to crack. Junk.
Yeah, I used mine twice and washed it after each use. My split got even worse after the second wash and another appeared. It's been two days and the wood hasn't uncurved. Not only that, but the wood is having little bits shave off which splinter into my hands and fingers, and likely my produce. PLUS, after my second time using it the feet are now unstable and it's wobbly. Which is a shame, the first use was amazing. If you're not supposed to wash this board with water, there needs to be a very clear warning. I washed it with Dawn dish soap, a wash clothe and luke warm water. Will be posting pictures soon.
Yes, there are already five splits in two uses.
Just look at how curved and wobbly this looks. Only one foot even sits partially flat anymore.
This one is the worst. Look at it. It's almost as high up in the air as the biggest split is wide.
Here's the biggest crack from the bottom.
And here's how curved it is upside down. Looks like a dog trying to get his belly rubbed.
In other words, don't buy this junk. Massdrop, I highly advise you not to run this drop, or this brand, again. This is unacceptable and I've always expected much better quality out of you.
Have you engaged MD support?
I haven't yet. I've been hoping the curve would fix itself but it hasn't, so I will now.
