How can you tell when it's time to replace your wooden cutting board? Here are some tips.
Wooden cutting boards naturally resist bacteria growth better than plastic cutting boards, but laminated wood boards are not dishwasher-safe and are more difficult to clean thoroughly. Consequently, the guidelines for replacing wooden cutting boards are similar to those for plastic boards. Replace a wooden cutting board when it gets excessively grooved or warped. Most wooden boards consist of several laminated pieces of wood, and they should be replaced if the seams between the boards begin to separate; bacteria may accumulate in the seams, and a cracked board may be dangerously unstable.
So, do you think you're in the market for a new slice-and-dice board? If so, I have a great recommendation.
