Cutting Boards

Rate this topic

Assuming you meant boards.



 



My folks have the perfect cutting board for meats. You can't buy them anymore. There is a slant to the board with the rear edge about 3/4" lower than the front. Great for gathering the juices and keeping them seperate from the meat. Lots of boards have a cut all the way around but it's nowheres near the same.



 



If I were handy I would make a few just like it.



 



I have a small butcher block that works great. Wood is the only way to go for any kind of meat. Plastic is only good for fruit and veggies.

My biggest issue with plastic cutting boards is the slide factor.  I just got some stuff at a local kitchen store that is like a rubber mesh mat and it has worked wonderfully.

Wood is good. I have a few plastic cutting boards but prefer to use wood. I actually just upgraded my wood cutting boards and would recommend either one. First one is a John Boos 20x15x1.5 black walnut edge grain(actually effed up and meant to get end grain) that's reversible. Next one is a pro-teak 20x14x2.5 made from end grain teak that's also reversible. I also have a pair of cutting boards hand crafted by Lew Anderson in Yarmouth Maine, guy makes an awesome cutting board. All of these with proper care will probably out live me.

Thought you were talking about slaughtering pigs........;)

 

Plastic cutting boards, as much as folks think otherwise, hold much more bacteria, even after being washed and sanitized with bleach, than do wooden ones. I will leave it at that.......;)

Yeah I am a fan of buying something that will last.  I probably should do it.  Can I put it in the dish washer ? heh.
