You know you need a cutting board, but which type of cutting board is the best? Cutting boards come in plastic, wood, glass, and bamboo. With so many options available to you how do you know which to buy? We are going to discuss each of these options below so that you can make the best choice for your needs.
- Plastic – Plastic cutting boards are often used because they are inexpensive and able to be washed in the dishwasher. The problem with plastic cutting boards is they don’t last long, so you will be replacing your cutting boards often. They also don’t have self-healing properties, are not anti-bacterial, and they can dull your knives.
- Wood – Wood cutting boards are high quality and will last a lifetime with proper care. They do not dull knives and have anti-bacterial properties that make them a healthy choice for your food cutting needs.
- Glass – Glass cutting boards may look nice, but they are not recommended as they are the worst option for your knives. They will quickly dull and potentially ruin your knives.
- Bamboo – Bamboo cutting boards are ecofriendly and can last a long time. Bamboo is an extremely hard wood that can be bad for your knives. They also require exceptional and consistent care. If not properly taken care of they will crack and split.
Out of all of your cutting board options, we feel that wood cutting boards are your best choice. They are beautiful, last a lifetime, easy to maintain, and won’t cause your knives to dull. If you are looking for a handcrafted wood cutting board, then give us a call today at WKS Wood Design.
