The right cutting board ensures that your knife remains sharp and that your food can be cut optimally. Hygiene is also very important when preparing food. Amanprana's Qi-board is made of camphor laurel wood, which contains natural antimicrobial essential oils. You’ll smell them right away. Scientist have proven that camphor cutting boards are the most hygienic and are 3 to 5 times less susceptible to bacteria and fungi. It is an exceptionally hygienic cutting board, which is also suitable for professional use (HACCP certified).
Camphor laurel is not rainforest wood. On the contrary, on the east coast of Australia, the exotic camphor laurel is deliberately being thinned out to make way for native eucalyptus trees.
*The picture is an indication but never the exact cutting board that we'll send you. But don't worry, we will only send you very beautiful cutting boards.
Camphor laurel is the ideal cutting surface for high-quality kitchen knives. It is a soft wood and does not dull knives, but it is also sufficiently durable and robust enough to prevent the deep penetration of the knife. This means that your board will not wear out easily. Sturdy enough to whitstand over 10 years of use.
A Qi-board consists of a single piece of wood, not of pressed beech or bamboo planks in which glue and other chemical substances are used that migrate into the wood and taint your food. This also makes that there aren’t any gaps where water can penetrate, which is good for the lifespan of your wooden chopping board.
Qi-board: cutting board, but also cheese platter, bread board or decorative serving tray
Each Qi-board is handmade by craftsmen in a small workshop. An investment, but you get something in return. Each board has its own unique form and grain and can be a real eye-catcher. Use your Qi-board as a decorative tray or as a beautiful bread board, cheese platter or breakfast tray.
How to choose the right cutting board?
Qi-boards are available in several sizes. Consider in advance whether your cutting board is always on the sink or whether it should be easy to store. Or base your choice of cutting board size on the size of the knife you use most often.
Maintenance and life span of your Qi-board
Rinse with warm water without detergent. Leave to dry in a standing position and allow to dry freely. Do not leave in water. Do not use dishwasher or microwave, do not heat.
To maintain the natural beauty and a beautiful patina of your Qi-board: rub 1 to 4 times a year with Amanprana's Qi-board Antiseptic oil.

Use your Qi-board cutting board also as a decorative serving tray or as a beautiful bread board or cheese platter.
