Product reviewed: JK Adams Maple Square Cheese Board with Cracker Groove
I love a good serving board. At my house, we do “board meals” all the time. It doesn’t matter if it’s a large charcuterie and vegetable board for the whole family or a snack board for a date night in, “board meals” are a great way to plan nutritious meals and snacks in a fun and trendy way. I was excited to test the new Maple Square Cheese Board with Cracker Groove from JK Adams.
This maple wood board is the perfect size for a small party or to serve a family. There is a curved groove running through the middle that is great for foods that tend to roll away or normally would need a jar or container such as nuts, crackers, berries and olives.
I decided the best way to test this product would be to pile on all my favorite “board meal” foods. I added everything from smoked salmon to carrots and cucumbers. The curved groove definitely helped contain foods and allowed for more fruits and vegetables that wouldn’t typically be included on a board. Any product that helps people eat more fruits and veggies is A-OK in my book!
When it came time to clean up, a simple rinse with warm water did the trick. The board dried easily with my usual kitchen towel. I was interested to see whether the board got stained or absorbed oil from any of the meats and cheeses; it doesn’t appear to absorb oils but would likely be stained by dark or bright-colored foods that leak juices or oils.
I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a quality board to use at dinner parties or other smaller gatherings. You can use it to serve any type of food, and it is sure to stand up to lots of wear and tear. It will be a favorite of mine for a long time to come!
