Acrylic Kitchen Products
Excelsior manufactures a line of Kitchen Kare™ brand acrylic kitchen cutting boards and other products. These products are made from 100% virgin Acrylic and are proudly made in the USA. Acrylic is a Thermoplastic, which means the material softens as it is heated and can actually turn back into a liquid at its melting point (around 350F). This nature allows us to bend counter lips and other flared edges into certain products. However, because of this characteristic, we recommend you hand-wash these cutting boards.

Acrylic Plastic Products, located in Jackson, MS, brought the acrylic cutting boards to market in the 1970’s. The first product they offered was the paddle board style cutting board. Two generations of the Kurtz family expanded this product line over the next nearly 50 years.
At the time Acrylic Plastic Products began offering acrylic as a cutting board material, there were few competitors. They found acrylic to be an excellent cutting board material and began to sell the initial products through retailers in Mississippi where they would visit and demonstrate the products.
Since that time the product offering has expanded and the Company grew its products through other chain retailers, through distributors that serve the hotel and condominium industry, and now direct to consumers through online sources.
In 2019, Excelsior, Inc. located in Rockford, IL purchased the cutting board line from Acrylic Plastic Products. Excelsior plans to continue to expand the product offering and grow the brand through traditional and online sources.
