Environmentally Friendly Wood Cutting Boards - The Essential Kitchen Accessory

by Dillon Patterson Article Publisher

Wood grain cutting boards offer several advances to cutting boards from glass or plastic. Wood grain cutting boards can be made from various types of wood such as pine, birch, oak and more. And if properly cared for, will last for many years, even decades.

Wood can withstand knife cuts as well as any material. And even a light sanding will bring back the wood surface to its original grain. Consider different cutting boards for different jobs. A good quality cutting board can also be beautiful enough to be used as a serving tray. Hardwoods are the ideal kind of wood grain for cutting boards since they tend to be a higher density material and will hold up well to knife blades and will not absorb liquids.

Wood-cutting boards are also desired because of their natural appearance, aesthetic appeal and the feel of nature. The inherent quality of wood grain adds a decorative touch and sense of style in a kitchen setting. Given that so much of today's kitchens are filled with plastic, metal, and rubber tools, equipment and accessories, a wood grain-cutting surface adds a nice alternative to the modern kitchen.

Is a Wood Cutting Board Any Better or Worse than other Cutting Board Materials?

One of the advantages of wood cutting boards is that they provide slight 'give' so they tend to not damage your expensive knives. Another advantage is the fact that cutting boards made from wood are less likely to retain germs from the food you prepare. As with any cutting surface that comes into contact with food, it is advisable to wash with warm water and soap after use. In fact, that is a good reason to dedicate certain cutting boards to certain tasks. Small wood cutting boards for citrus, large boards dedicated to meat, and separate surfaces for vegetables.

When selecting a cutting board, you will notice that they are offered in a variety of shapes, sizes, colour and grain type. It is wise to spend some time to think about your counter top area together with cutting requirements. By deciding what type works best for your needs you are going to enjoy owning a solid cutting board to prepare your home meals.

A note on Caring for Your Wood Grain Cutting Board.

If you wish to make your wood cutting board very last for you for a long period, take into account that you need to keep it clean consistently, by regularly soaking it after each and every use. It is not necessary but perfectly fine to simply sanitize it with a teaspoon of vinegar to naturally kill bacteria. It is best to wash with hot water and wipe dry or air dry before using again.
