Why Wood Cutting Boards Are Preferable than Plastic?

Whether you’re buying one for yourself or for a gift, a cutting board is an indispensable accessory in any kitchen. It is not only used to slice food and prepare meals, but it also display as a decorative element and a serving piece as well

You have two main choices when it comes to cutting board material: wood and plastic. However, at Cutting Boards USA, we firmly believe that wood cutting boards are superior to plastic counterparts. Here are four reasons why:

1. Wood is long lasting.

Plastic cutting boards are easily stained and marred. They become increasingly difficult to clean, and after a year or so of heavy use, they need to be replaced.  And especially, it’s possible to refurbish wood cutting boards simply by sanding it.

2. Wood is easier on your knives.

If you’ve invested in a good chef’s knife and want it to maintain its edge longer, then you’ll definitely want a wood cutting board. Plastic doesn’t give under the force of a knife, which can quickly dull the blade. The natural fibers of wood do yield, making it a much better material for protecting your cutlery.

3. Wood is a greener choice.

If you’re at all concerned about the environment, you probably want to limit your use of plastics. Investing in a beautiful wood cutting board, which is made from a renewable resource, is one way to make your life greener.

4. Wood looks beautiful.

There’s absolutely no debate here: wood simply looks a lot more elegant. In fact, many cooks and chefs love the look of wood cutting boards so much that they use them to serve everything from cheese courses to charcuterie to artisanal chocolate flights. Serving on plastic is much less appealing.
