WHY IS WOOD THE BEST MATERIAL FOR CHOPPING BOARDS?
Wood is by far the best material for making chopping boards for the following reasons:
1. Wood is extra kind to knife blades - the gentle give in the wooden cutting surface keeps the knife as sharp as possible and avoids bending the blade
2. Wood is the safest material because bacteria have a much lower survival rate than on plastic chopping boards
3. Wood is gorgeous and adds to the look and feel of your kitchen
