I don't know why these even exist, like those glass chopping boards, these will knacker a sharp knife the first time you use it.

It's great price used as a granite trivet though

If these blunt your knives it means you aren't cutting into the board - the knife marks in plastic boards in particular quickly become a haven for bacterial colonies.

I have glass chopping surface but it's mainly there to obscure some of the grim 1980s kitchen my landlord has shown no interest in upgrading!

Also you can put hot things on it. Plus it's much easier to lift and clean in the sink, compared to the kitchen worktop which is 7 foot wide.

The surface of the board (granite) is deflecting the knife and preventing grooves forming into which bacteria will grow. So yeah, it's bad for the sharpness of knives but more hygienic than a wooden or plastic board.

So use a brand new knife on the granite first time, then you can use it on plastic / wooden boards thereafter as it wont be sharp enough to create a groove anyway?

You place one (or more) between the subwoofer and the floor. Due to their inherent density, they reflect the sound waves, instead of absorbing them like carpet/ wood flooring would. It's part way to decoupling. This will work for all types of subwoofer but best so with downward firing designs.
I have two of the Tesco equivalent under my BK Electronics XLS 200 (DF). Tightens up the bass a treat and improves impact.

They can be used under floor standing speakers too.

Mmmmm interesting concept, for this price certainly worth giving it a go.

they exist because theyre designed for cutting meat as the bacteria can contaminate your wooden chopping boards. ideally youre meant to have a wooden one for veg and a granite/slate one for meats. easier to clean too

i assume the larger one would also be good for pastry rolling , dont they stay cool ?? or maybe i dreamt that lol

I know that sounds plausible and definitely intuitive but I'm not having it. I reckon if you wash your plastic cutting board with fairy liquid there is next to no chance it will harbour harmful bacteria, grooves or not.

As a trivet this looks decent. Never in a million years would I use this to cut on - apart from ruining your knives it will be slippy as hell! I can recommend the hygiplas ones though - don't bother with the suitability colour coded ones(meat, fish etc), just get the colour that suits your kitchen. (_;)
#26
But anyone with half decent knives will also have a sharpener/steel? When it comes to hygiene (and, as a rule, it's generally accepted that we've become 'too' clean and allergies have gone through the roof as a result) wood and plastic are not advised because of the bacteria growth in the scores. The advise has *got* to be based on statistics rather than the anecdotal 'it's never done me any harm' (and it probably hasn't!).

Bottom line is, the guidelines are there (and just that - a *guide*) and we choose how much of it we want to take on board and adhere to.

Yeah some great ideas, the sub-woofer idea i'm most definitely going to try as mine is sat on a wooden floor.

The tiling idea would be a massive money saver aswell.

Keep them coming :D

That's what I'm thinking. They should do if they're just a lump of granite. Worth a try anyway as they're also good for rolling pastry on as it keeps cool.

My granite work top is fab for pastry! The perks of having a stonemason in the house :p

Watched a couple of YT vids on DIY pizza stones and this tupe of thing was suggested. Been baking my own bread recently, so think its worth a shot. Like the rectangular shape too.

can say the same as to why wood ones exist as they are unhygienic
