SAK with your cutting board and other inquiries...
« on: November 17, 2020, 04:27:20 PM »
I have cutting board envy.
I love those posts where I see a cutting board filled with cheese, meat and bread on them.
Then I thought, that's exactly what my cheeseburger has, meat, bread and cheese, but mine seemed so fast-food, so unrefined.  :facepalm:

So, I'd like to buy a cutting board, but don't know if some types of wood are better than others to resist bacteria, etc.  I would rather pay extra to get the peace of mind that it can last and it is healthy.  If you have suggestions, please share them.

Is there a right and wrong to what goes on the board?  Any superstitions or folklore to what should be placed on one, or not?  I'd definitely want pickles, and maybe olives on mine.

Please share what you put on your cutting board.

Not a great tablet pic, but this one is hard maple. Applying food grade cutting board oil a couple times per year is recommended, to keep it from drying out and cracking. Should last a lifetime.

I find beech to be an excellent wood for chopping boards, and my big-ones are all beech.

a skeletool and chopping board

mine is rubberwood, apparently once trees get to a certain age they dry up and they can no longer be tapped, so they are chopped down and a new crop are replanted so eco friendly.
also its end grain which means it is self healing to some extent. i oil mine every couple of months as it stops it drying out and seals it stopping the vegetable juices soaking in,

My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

Bamboo gets my vote Lisa.  It's virtually indestructible and is easily cleaned.

Thank you for adding to my confusion Barry.  :D :pok:  :D
I almost had it nailed down to getting Maple wood.  I haven't purchased yet, but I'm getting close.

Bamboo is supposed  to be tough on knife edges  :dunno:.  I picked up some bamboo cutting boards and my edges were fine.  I use Boos Maple cutting board.  Its been bomb proof.

I've got a couple of the small round boards, one for home, one for work. Very useful.

Got a larger bamboo board recently. Easy to clean and very light.

Light sounds good, I know some of them get heavy depending on size.
I've narrowed it down to Maple, Beech or Bamboo.

Thank you Aloha for the tip, I'll be googling "Boos Maple" after I post this reply.  :cheers:

After using beech end grain and along the grain for years I swapped to bamboo after having it recommended to me by Zwilling and Miyabi shop when I got my Miyabi 5000 8” a few years ago. I have to say that edge retention is superior in my experience, and aside from a wipe over with food grade mineral oil once every 6 weeks or so it needs no special care - I shall try be going back to beech! This one is made by/for Zwilling (interestingly they don’t brand them for Miyabi and use a direct wood for those, hinoki).

Great to hear about he edges.  I picked up some little bamboo board for camping and my edges also held up well.  I've read the nodules are what dull the edges but again no issues  :dunno:.  Figured I'd at the very least mention it.  Maybe on softer steel it can be an issue? 

I never cut raw chicken on my wood board however I do on bamboo.  I use plastic mats for chicken so I can sanitize.  Never cut beets either on my wood board.

I use my wood board for veg only. I have colour coded plastic boards for raw meat, cooked meat, bread and cheese, reason being they are easily disinfected and can be replaced regularly.
Also a bread knife can make short work of a wooden board.
The plastic boards are harder on knives than a good wooden board but they are normally used with a slicing motion as opposed to chopping of hard veg.


My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

Thank you all for the added contributions.
Cutting boards are not as simple as their design, lots to consider.

They definitely don't look as nice as the wood, but, as some others have already noted, plastic is the way to go for a sanitary cutting board.  I'd look for one that is dishwasher-safe and has non-slip rubber on the bottom to keep it from sliding around on the counter top.
