Finding the Right Cutting Board

The decision of choosing a cutting board could be a daunting task. It can be difficult to decide what one to purchase. If you are aware of the features that matter to you, you will be able to choose the one that best meets your requirements. Glass boards are stunning to look at and robust. They are a great way to shield countertops from heat generated by pans and pots.

They are also simple to clean. But, a glass table isn't the best for the knives, creating grooves and pits that could make cutting them difficult too. The wooden cutting blocks are the top choice of those who are only beginning to cook. But, they can be prone to gouges as well as cuts that can harbor bacteria. If they are not properly cleaned and maintained, they can become a playground for bacteria therefore it is essential to be aware of how to properly clean them.

Whichever board you decide to use the most important thing is to understand how to keep the food you cook secure. To get the best results, you should have multiple boards that have color codes to distinguish the different types of food items: one for fresh fruits and vegetables, vegetables and fruits, another one for meat, fish and poultry as well as one for cooked or dairy products. 

This will help prevent cross-contamination of your food which will safeguard your well-being. Some may suggest that you apply bleach water in diluted amounts to disinfect those plastic surfaces. If you decide to use bleach, pour one tablespoon of chlorine that is unscented bleach into gallon of water and soak your board for up to an hour.
