Chopping boards are used in almost every kitchen. They are available in plastic, wood and tempered glass. The plastic used is polyethylene. Tempered glass is toughened to avoid any shards when being used. There are several types of wood used. Chopping boards can be made from one solid piece of wood (these tend to be the most expensive) or from smaller pieces of wood bonded together in a similar way to the staves in solid wood worktops.
Chopping Board Sets
There are sets of chopping boards sold, which allow for individual types of food to be prepared on each. This ensures that uncooked meats are not prepared on the same surface as vegetable and salads that may be eaten raw. This also allows for preparation of vegan meals, ensuring that no meat comes into contact with non-meat foods. Looking to buy a chopping board or other kitchen accessory?
