    Just Ask Susan~I like the over-the-sink model of cutting boards as well. I did find that you must be sure to measure your sink and compare it to the available size adjustment provided by the board. Some over sized sinks or basins can be too large for a safe fit. Thank you so much for making it by today, your time is very appreciated. Here's wishing you a great weekend!

    I have 4 cutting boards 3 which are wooden as I prefer the wooden ones. I like your selection here and I have always wanted the one that goes over the sink. The price for the set of bamboo ones is excellent!

    ochiboy84~ Thank you for your question. In my opinion the best way to maintain your wooden cutting boards is to clean them with a vinegar and salt solution, rubbing it on all surfaces--both sides--and edges. Leave the solution on the board until it soaks in completely. Wipe off the solution from all surfaces thoroughly until it is clean and dry. Using a food grade oil (not olive oil or vegetable oil as these will surely degrade and go rancid) rub the cutting board all over, including the edges. I recommend oiling bi-weekly and vinegar and salt scrubbing at least monthly--always oiling after this cleaning. I do not recommend you use a wood cutting board for poultry, a plastic or non-porous material is required for this job. Poultry bacteria can live within wood and porous materials making for a very sick condition because of cross-contamination or food poisoning bacteria. So always have a non-porous board dedicated to poultry and remember to clean (sterilize) this poultry cutting board after every use. Hope this helps! I appreciate your comments.

    This is a really fantastic post that I really do appreciate. A wooden cutting board will always out do a plastic cutting board in the kitchen.What do you recommend, how often should you oil your kitchen cutting board?

    Nellieanna~So very nice to see this day! I have had you in my thoughts regularly! Thank you for the comment, I do have to say that I struggle to use the glass boards. It is like fingers on a chalkboard instead of a knife on a cutting board, to me. Not a good sound. I appreciate you making it by today, I am as honored as I can be.

    Good stuff. I've had all kinds of cutting boards. But he one which is the most satitary - plus doubles as a trivet - is the tempered glass. Only thing is the sound when he knife hits the surface. Glassy!

    I prefer the wooden boards, glass is too noisy - at least it is the way i cut veggies. Great selection.

    Jane@CM~I figured some smart kitchen person had this idea of a cutting board for each food category already in place! The boards you speak of are really very handy and store so easily on or under the counter, like a little kitchen briefcase! Thank you for reading the hub and for stopping by!


    Dobson~I am grateful you made it by for a read. I hope the family is well. These cutting boards do come in a mixed-bag of designs and materials. I had a pretty good time researching out the really best choices. Thanks for your comments!


    Hey Chaz~ i hope the stitches aren't too bad? You make me laugh! Thanks for reading the hub and for caling me out on the other, you my friend rock! Appreciate the comments.

    My knife slipped once. Thank god I was up for the snip anyway. Don't need that again, so to make things a little safer I need to get one of these. Trouble is I've got attached to the old one. The stitches holding us together will be out on Friday.

    Pop back soon.
