    Jenny's cutting board

    Good morning from the UK - just watched the latest tutorial (thanks Annika) and, as usual, Jenny's cutting always seems to go so smoothly. Anyone know what that cutting surface is - I have the Olfa green board which is getting past it's sell-buy date and doesn't help my cutting. Is Jenny's self-healing? Thinking I might treat myself that's if something like it is available in the UK! Thanks

    I would think that hers is self healing. I also found this for you, I hope that helps.

      I believe most of the cutting boards used at Missouri Star are from Altos: https://www.altosezmat.com/

      (anyone know for certain?) ((and I don't believe they are self-healing . . . ))

      My personal preference? https://www.martellinotions.com/

      Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

          I think you are right Sandy. I also want a Martelli. I'm just not sure my marriage can withstand it. LOL. I really do need a bigger one though.

            When I was in their shops, a lot of them did use the Altos, and I believe you are right about them not being self healing Sandy. At least the one I have isn't. I vote for Martelli as well and would never buy another brand.

              I can't imagine using a non-self healing mat.

                Thanks for all your advice and website suggestions. I too can't believe there is such a thing as a non-self-healing mat - does that mean it's not 'wounded' with the rotary cutter in the first place

                  There are a whole lot of mats that are not self-healing - F&Ps was a definite waste of my money. Olfas are gone sooner than later. The Altos mats develop definite grooves where cut upon . . .
