Just don't put these into the Dishwasher lol

After a time the wood starts to crack

We've decided to just own hard plastic boards, at least the plastic won't harbour hidden bugs

Doesnt bother Jamie Oliver - he serves the food on his chopping board.

+ Your not supposed to put wood in a dishwasher

They did a test somewhere and plastic boards held more bacteria than wooden ones apparently

Every days a school day lol

That settles that then ;]

Where is somewhere? Someone else said only use rusty steel ones!

Maybe they drop kicked them in Azerbajan and they didn't get as badly damaged as the plastic ones?

No they didn't.

These thing are very small, 15cm x 22cm.

No they didn't.



Oh yes they did. Wood wins due to natural antibacterial properties. Just Google!
The most important factor for chopping board hygiene is use a separate board for raw meat.

They're drinks coasters then, not chopping boards!

Until someone actually produces a peer reviewed study on this, I'm going with plastic.

Why? It can go through the dishwasher at 75degC each day. Very little will survive this.

Why wood you need 6?

I think that these are for serving rather than preparing food. That would explain the size and the fact that there are 6 of them. I'm in btw. Heat added.

These aren't chopping boards folks, these are more like 'breakfast boards'; you would use them for putting toast or bread etc on them. (Cue 37 jokes about cornflakes falling off the sides and the milk spilling )

Anyway we had these for a while and we liked using them, the only thing that caused them to bite the bullet was the dishwasher as the kids used to put them in there.

By the way, the wooden chopping boards are more hygienic because the cuts in the wood naturally close over and prevent microbes from getting a foothold in the gaps. The plastic ones leave a wider scar on the surface, apparently.

These are not chopping boards. They are used instead of ceramic plates during breakfast/dinner in Germany/Scandinavian countries.

Show me bacteria that survive 30 minutes at 75degC, and that become relevant.

One single test, with no controls, and handwashed? Not exactly convincing.

I'm not biting buddy because I never said anything that would contradict your statement. You have a point about the temp of the dishwasher but the idea is that not everyone has a dishwasher and not everyone puts their chopping boards directly into the dishwasher. Not all dishwashers operate at 75oC as many have economy cycles.

The point I made was an aside at the end of the main point. Why on earth you would see it as a challenge and respond in such a laughably petty manner is beyond me. Is a pub without their bore tonight?

Just for the record, Methanopyrus Kandleri is an example of a microbe that doesn't come out to play unless it's a balmy 80oC or greater but I'd be more worried how it got into your kitchen rather than running out to buy an gamma irradiating dishwasher just to get the little feckers off your plastic chopping boards.

You are writing an awful lot of words for someone not biting.

whatsThePoint

how else have you been washing a wooden board ?



I've not, I've been putting the plastic chopping board in a dishwasher.

Was given a set of these a year ago and use them daily - great as mats/coasters.

Heat added.

Made of 99.8% Wood. 0.02% Horse.

Wood has natural enzymes that can fight bacteria, plastic tend to re-seal and contain bacteria. just use wood for meat and veg and plastic just for veg. but generally, plastic ones are not a problem. especially if you have a iron stomach from being a student!

these would make excellent individual cheese boards

If hygiene is your primary concern then glass or Stainless are the best options - ruin your knives though!

Hang on... The first one is destroyed at 60degC, and the second isn't bacteria.

No it isn't destroyed and the second is.
