Chopping Boards, Which is More Hygienic Plastic or Wooden?

Ask a Question

Are plastic chopping boards more hygienic than wooden ones?

I'd like a silicone one but not sure which is best?

Not sure which is most hygienic it all depends on how you clean it. I prefer the plastic silicone ones because they can go in the dishwasher. Wooden and bamboo ones split in the dishwasher.

Pjran my wooden one is now ready to be replaced but I wanted to try something different. I heard that wooden was more hygienic but I don't think that is right?

I think I'll get a silicone one too.

Any recommendations on this?

I mainly use scissors for cutting up the meat and putting it directly in the cooking apparatus. Use electric chopper for most veg. But when needed I use a Plastic chopping board. I do thoroughly wash. And all been fine and dandy. But I suppose if you’re really concerned you could bleach it here and there ?

My cheffy brother said wooden was best tho I prefer plastic and I scrub/bleach etc ... I think glass are supposed to damage your knives if I remember right?

I have always used a glass one. That way I know it is washed properly and nothing sticks in it as there is no grooves

How about glass, they’re easily cleaned. Don’t split and are quite durable. Aesthetically Nice too

SAdeals definitely, it’s such a wonderful type of board as you’d think glass would shatter! A nice surprise to be honest lol

I have recently bought a chopping board set, a different board for fish, meat etc. It's plastic, but my husband wasn't impressed as he prefers wooden. I like the plastic as you just put them in the dish washer rather than having to scrub them.
