Environmentally Friendly Wood Cutting Boards - The Essential Kitchen Accessoryby 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.
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
A note on Caring for Your Wood Grain
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.
