The first time I used one of these I was hooked. The handles on each end serve to grip the counter top, a huge problem with most cutting boards. It comes in multiple sizes. I suggested getting a few. This is the large one and gets the most use at my house. If you want a trick for keeping your cutting boards from slipping around and you’re not using OXO, dampen a kitchen towel, fold it in half and place it under the board. Works perfect.
