What Is Better --- Plastic or Wood --- For A Chopping Board?

Invest In Wood Chopping Boards

Chopping boards can be purchased in either wood or plastic variations. There are advantages and disadvantages to each --- however, most people prefer wood chopping boards because are aesthetically pleasing. However, the germs that remain on the wood can be a disadvantage, which is why it is so important to clean wood chopping boards properly after each time you use them. Wood chopping boards are better for your knives and contain a natural bacteria-killing property, which makes them safer and cleaner than their plastic counterparts.
