Saw a post below about cutting boards.
What kind is yours?
Wood or a plastic composite.
I think the composites are easier to sanitize, but then again, I'm sure wood has been used for centuries.
Mine is a composite, which is getting tired and I wonder if little plastic shreds are going into the stuff I cut and chop. I don't have a microscope, so I don't know (Extra fiber maybe, which is not that appealing).
