Cutting Boards Buying Guide

Get cutting, chopping, slicing, and dicing with a collection of cutting boards. To keep foods safe and your cutting boards bacteria-free, designate one board for raw meats and another for fresh fruits, vegetables, or nuts. Smaller-size boards are just the ticket for a quick, small chop, and larger, over-the-sink options are nice for foods that need cleaning before slicing.

Types of Cutting Boards

Types of Cutting Boards

Choose from wood, plastic, bamboo, synthetic, or glass cutting boards. Each material has its place in a kitchen. Think about size constraints and storage space when buying a board. You'll need at least a couple of boards for different types of food. Then think about how much food you tend to cut to determine the best sizes for your family food prep.

Plastic

Plastic cutting boards are affordable and easy to clean, but sharp knives can scuff them up. They come in a variety of colors and are thick or thin and hard or flexible.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

The life of a cutting board depends on the amount of use it gets as well as the type of care it receives. If you thoroughly clean (and bleach) a plastic or glass board after each use, and if it is free of grooves that can trap bacteria, it can last for years. Once a cutting board starts to get scarred with cuts, it should be replaced. Buy cutting boards knowing you'll be replacing some in a few years. Follow the instructions carefully for "seasoning" or preserving wood boards, as well as cleaning all types of boards.

Use

Consider how often you will use a cutting board. If it's daily, choose a board of good size for frequent use. Also decide if it will be left on the counter, placed over the sink, or tucked away in a cupboard.

Sizes

Having a few cutting boards of varying sizes on hand is a good idea for handling big or small food quantities for the task at hand.

Task-Specific

Have one cutting board for meats, one for poultry, and at least one other for vegetables and fruits. Some cutting boards are color- or symbol-coded to designate what food the board is used for.

Material

A combination of wood and plastic boards is wise for different food types and the need to kill bacteria after raw meat and fruit or vegetable prep. Try various styles of boards, and then as they need to be replaced, replenish with your favorite.

No Sliding

Cutting boards can slide on the work surface while you are trying to cut, so look for a board that has a counter-hugging texture or feet. If the board slips, place a damp cloth underneath.
