Care Instructions

Wooden pasta tools are best cleaned naturally! After use, take a clean sponge or rag and dampen in a mixture of water and lemon juice or water and baking soda. Squeeze out excess water and wipe down your gnocchi board to remove excess flour or dough, and allow to dry naturally in a cool, ventilated place. If you still find a bit of flour stuck between the ridges, use a clean natural toothbrush to gently brush it out. Note: do not run through dishwasher or running water.

Very Poor Quality

Unfortunately, I received a board that looked nothing like the photos. There was more attention placed on the beautiful packaging of this board rather than the product itself. My board does not appear to have been sanded. The entire surface of it is splintered and there is a large crack on the side. I have been waiting 5 days to hear back and have not received a response from q.b. cucina. Considering the cost of the item plus the $10 shipping fee I paid, I was not expecting such poor quality.

Priscilla, I am very sorry to hear that this board arrived damaged and in poor quality. We do our best to inspect all of our products carefully before shipping to our customers but clearly, this one slipped through the cracks. We have refunded you for this item and hope that you will consider giving us another chance in the future. All the best, Sarah

Gnocchi Board

I discovered your website while researching how to make homemade rigatoni. From ordering to the receipt of this fabulous board, the experience was top notch! The board is beautiful and the packaging was perfect--totally environmentally friendly since we are committed to buying nothing in plastic. Will be using qb Cucina again!
