Top 10 Best Wooden Cutting Boards

In this article, we will review the top 10 best wooden cutting boards that can be purchased online.

Humans have been using wood implements to prepare food for millennia, and it has only been in the past few decades that plastic came into fashion. For a while, plastic was thought to be safer than wood, but we now know this is not entirely correct. Tiny cuts in plastic from daily use can become a breeding ground for bacteria. However, with a wooden cutting board, moisture is drawn to the center where bacteria die. In a recent test, wooden cutting boards were shown to be free of bacteria the day after using versus their plastic counterparts. The other advantage of wood is that it is entirely biodegradable and sustainable so that it won’t end up in a landfill. For many people, wood is an aesthetic choice that offers not only a versatile cutting surface but can double as a serving tray for meats and cheeses. In this review, we will feature our favorite wooden cutting boards.
