I’m Peter and I’m always looking for the best cutting board. Other people collect the best knives, I collect the best cutting boards, no kidding.
Do you admire someone else’s cutting board because it seems to be better than yours? You may just be looking for a cheap cutting board, or you may be looking for the best cutting board that will last you a lifetime…you can find reviews for both kinds here!
Cheap or high grade plastic, wood or bamboo, thick blocks and thin composite boards, I have tried them all. Some of the cutting boards you may cringe away by just glancing at the price, but don’t judge it before you read my cutting board reviews.
But before you decide which kind of cutting board you’re looking for, why not spend a few minutes to read my post on how to choose the best cutting board that you’ll love to use again and again.
How to Choose the Best Cutting Board
Cutting boards are made of a few kinds of material. They all have their pros and cons so I cannot say which material is the absolute best one. The best I can do is to elaborate on those pros and cons and let you find out which is your best cutting board.

I would put cutting boards into two categories – one that is cheap, needs very little maintenance, but is not durable so prepare to throw it away as soon as it’s done for; the other one is at a sky-high price, needs more care, but will last many many years.
If you don’t think you want to invest in an expensive cutting board, go for the plastic or composite ones. There are wood and bamboo ones at a cheap price, but since the price is a strong indicator of durability, it’s not worth the effort in maintenance (hand washing and treating with oil) anyway.
There are a few things to note when picking a cutting board:
- Easy to clean
- Kind to knives
- Material and Construction
- Durable or Disposable
- Large cutting space
- Attractiveness and Storage
If you can afford it and don’t mind hand washing, wood and bamboo cutting boards are great. End grain cutting boards are the best cutting boards. Well, can’t fit everything in here, so click over to read my post on How to Choose the Best Cutting Board for more tips. My blog has more tips and reviews as well.
