Finding a good chopping board is no easy task. Because chopping boards today come in a variety of materials, each with its own advantages and disadvantages, it is often difficult to make a choice. Plastic cutting boards are easy to wash and maintain, but they are just as susceptible to bacteria as wooden boards. Chopping boards made from stainless steel are the best in terms of hygiene but suffer from the problem of poor grip and scratches. So, which board would you choose? Well, that depends on your budget and health concerns, but we prefer the wooden boards to others. And it is best to replace them often so you don’t give room for bacteria to grow and contaminate your food. Here is our roundup of some of the best chopping boards you can buy for cutting up your fruits and veggies.

We hope you find our selection of chopping boards helpful in picking up one for your kitchen. We personally prefer the bigger chopping boards as you can cut all your veggies in one go rather than cutting in smaller amounts. The key to a good cutting board is of course, keeping them hygienic. One way to do that is to wash and dry the wooden boards well. Rubbing the board with salt and lemon after each use and then washing and wiping them dry is a good habit. Most times damp boards can lead to growth of fungus and bacteria. Therefore, proper after use care is a must to keep the boards hygienic and long lasting.
