Why You Should Be Using Wooden Cutting Boards

I follow Michael Symon on Twitter and he recently started a thread about wooden cutting boards. I haven’t really thought too much about my cutting boards. I have several plastic ones, some flexible sheets, and other rigid boards. I trust what Michael has to say on this matter ever since my trip to Mabel’s BBQ in Cleveland, OH. It is a great BBQ joint!

The article that Michael cites is from Common Sense Home: 4 Reasons Wooden Cutting Boards Are Best. Wooden cutting boards naturally resist bacteria, provide a great cutting surface, and are easy to clean and maintain.

  1. Wooden Cutting Boards Kill Bacteria
  2. Wooden Cutting Boards Protect Your Knives
  3. Wooden Cutting Boards are Easy to Take Care Of
  4. Wooden Cutting Boards are Customizable

So, do the research yourself and draw your own conclusions. If you decide to get a wooden cutting board, I recommend a Teak Cutting Board cured with beeswax and coconut oil.
