Best Cutting Boards

When you’re looking for a cutting board, there are a few things to consider.  Wood and plastic will be our focus, as glass cutting boards will dull your knives in a New York minute.  If you’re after a wood cutting board, bamboo is highly sought after due to its antibacterial & antimicrobial properties, plus its very durable. It’s easy on your knives and is guaranteed to last. If you’re seeking a plastic cutting board, you want to look for FDA-approved or BPA-Free plastic. Typically, plastic boards are easy on your cutlery as well.  
 
All the boards on this list are made of either natural bamboo, organic bamboo, or BPA-Free plastic. Let’s get started!

The Seville Classics bamboo cutting board is one of our favorite boards on this list. It’s the best of both worlds…bamboo and plastic, and not integrated as one board!  It’s a hefty bamboo board (16” x 12” x 1”), but it has an additional seven plastic cutting boards tucked away inside. The purpose of this design was so the plastic boards would used to reduce cross-contamination between your various foods.  Having extra cutting boards available saves time.  This board also has a small juice trough to catch grease and juices. It has silicone non-slip feet, which is extremely useful and a nice touch.

The Panda Pal dual-sided cutting board is a very unique board. Instead of having two separate boards for your meat and your veggies, Panda Pal combined the two into one.

Then simply flip it over to the polypropylene (a synthetic resin) that is BPA-Free, perfect for cutting poultry and various meats. If you are after a perfect all-in-one board, and don’t want the hassle of keeping up with a bamboo board and a plastic board, this may be the answer.

The Bambusi Carving cutting board is the most unique board on this list, and also the most expensive. This bamboo board has a small oval of tiny pyramids in the center to hold your meat in place while you carve. Surrounding the oval is a deep juice trough, designed to catch all the drippings from your meat. It is extremely heavy duty, being 1.5” thick and weighing a whopping 7.5 pounds. This board is also double-sided. If you flip it over, there is a flat bamboo surface, perfect for cutting the meat you just carved, or slicing and serving cheese or fruits. Keep in mind this side does not have a juice catcher.
