This is a really nice size cutting board. I live in a small apartment and my old board was to big and cumbersome making it difficult to clean. This cutting board fits in the sink and is very nice size to clean. I like that it has a hole cut and includes a string so it can easy be hung on the wall to save space in the kitchin. I'd also like to point out that It's very well made and attractive. All in all this is a great cutting board at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend if you are like me and live in a smaller space.
