Maple Cutting Boards. Now much like everybody right here my other half and also I have owned a number of plastic cutting boards they are not to costly and also they finish the job, yet they will dull your knives in no time. With that said they do include a great cleansing when used and also newer studies have shown that they in fact hold germs some state that the plastic surface area will even urge the development of germs. Now I cannot state that I have ever gotten ill from utilizing plastic boards yet my other half and also I have the tendency to scrub them really good after utilizing them and also we don’t permit food to sit there for very long.
Wood cutting boards and also butcher blocks have been around because mid 1800 prior to that they used chunks of wood or tree rounds for butcher blocks. Research studies now show us that wood is a superior cutting surface area. That germs just lives for about 3 minutes on wood boards.
