In order to cut food into portions, it must be cut with a knife. A chopping and cutting board can be used as a base for preparation. On the one hand, it protects the kitchen worktop from damage and, on the other hand, enables effortless cutting.
Material of the chopping board: wood or plastic
Chopping boards in the kitchen must be able to withstand sharp knives. Therefore the fundamental question of the material arises: wood or plastic. The use of wood or plastic as a chopping board is a personal preference. Both materials are suitable for cutting vegetables and meat. Cutting boards made of wood are no more unhygienic than a board made of plastic. Chopping boards made of glass or stone are not suitable as underlays, as these materials quickly dull the kitchen knives.
Cutting board made of wood - Natural look
Particularly high-quality are chopping board variants made of thermo beech, oiled beech, bamboo, and Hinoki. The latter is a Japanese cypress species, whose wood is unusually light, but still very resistant and durable.
