Let’s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of all the different cutting boards~
1) Wooden Cutting Board
Wood boards do have antibacterial properties, but they may absorb bacteria that can live for a few hours below the wood's surface, even after washing.
With the wooden materials, once the surface becomes scored or cut, it's a great bacteria magnet! If there is residual moisture between pores, it is easy to breed bacteria, mold, and odor after a long time.
-Durable and long lasting
-Good drainage and air permeability, not easy to leave smell of it
-Heavy weight, not easy to slide during use
Wooden cutting boards naturally have divots and grooves on their surfaces, moisture can penetrate and become trapped in these grooves.
The food residue and sometimes mold and bacteria from whatever you were cutting, then clings to this moisture and starts to grow mold and bacteria of its own.
2) Plastic Cutting Board
Plastic cutting boards are easy to clean and do not require a lot of hard work maintenance. Although they are prone to knife marks, but you can always change and replace them because they are “generally inexpensive.
But because plastic cutting boards are not heat resistant, try not to cut hot food with it.

If you want to extend the service of the cutting board and perform healthy and safe cooking, don't neglect the daily maintenance!
1. Separate use of raw and cooked food:
It's no secret that raw meat, poultry, and fish can harbor bacteria like E. coli and Salmonella, which can make you sick. But when you use just one cutting board for both meat and veggies, the juice from the former is more likely to contaminate the latter. So keep in mind. Always use a different cutting boards for different ingredients.
2. Hang and place it after drying:
Always always dry your cutting board before keeping them back to your rack or counter.
A damp board and minimal air circulation sets the stage for yucky bacteria growth. Instead of placing your freshly washed cutting board right back on the counter, you're better off letting it hang out on a dish rack for a little while. (or you can dry it with a dry cloth and hang it in a ventilated place)
3. Regular replacement according to the situation:
Scratched cutting boards are easy to hide dirt and bacteria.
A cutting board that is not replaced when it should be can result in sickness or injury, so cutting-board replacement is a kitchen chore that you should not forget.
