Set of 3 prep series wood composite cutting boards
It’s also possible that you don’t want a board that’s plastic or wood. In that case, consider opting for composite boards, which gives you the best of both worlds. This composite set gives you three cutting boards in a range of sizes to cover all of your food prep needs. The large board measures 10 by 17 inches, the medium, 14.5 by 9.5 inches, and the smallest comes in at 10 by 7 inches.
These boards are designed to withstand all the possible chopping, mincing, dicing, and slicing tasks you’ll encounter in your kitchen. Plus, they are even heat safe up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, so you can use them as a trivet in a pinch, or carve a turkey straight from the roasting pan. Like the plastic OXO board, these from Epicurean are dishwasher safe, and will actually show less wear and tear than the plastic ones. And if you’re not a fan of the faux wood look, they also come in a slate color.
One of the few disadvantages is that these boards don’t have a channel around the edge to keep liquids from running off the board. While it’s not a deal breaker, it does mean you’ll have to clean more spills off your counter.
