When it comes to utensils and gadgets for your food preparation, boards of all persuasions should be high on your list. Buying just one board won't do - this is a case where multipurpose isn't feasible because your boards need to be used for one purpose (and one purpose only) to avoid hygiene issues such as cross-contamination of bacteria.
True to their name, chopping boards are for chopping or dicing food ingredients. The kind of chopping board you use comes down to the specific task. For example, wooden chopping boards are fibrous, which means they won't blunt your knives but they can also trap minuscule food particles. Don't use wooden chopping boards for meat - opt for plastic chopping boards instead, and consider getting a suite of coloured plastic boards so you only chop chicken on the board designated for chicken, fish on the one for fish and so on.
Keep your wooden chopping boards in tip-top condition by making sure they are wiped down properly with a soapy sponge and then allowed to fully air-dry. Another effective cleaning method is to mix one part white distilled vinegar to four parts water, spray it on the wooden board, leave it to stand for five minutes then rinse.
Plastic boards can be put in the dishwasher for proper sanitation and cleaning.
Generally speaking, cheese boards are wooden boards designed to present cheese platters and accompaniments such as fruit, pastes and crackers in a visually appealing way. You'll find cheese boards in paddles shapes, rectangular and circular, and many different sizes too. Some may look like a wooden chopping board but it's best to reserve cheese platters solely for your table presentation so they look hygienic and pristine.
Cheese boards can often be purchased as part of cheese and knife sets, so you've got everything at hand for the perfect cheese platter. These sets are also popular gifts, especially for newly weds or as housewarming presents for the person who may have it all.
Clean your wooden cheese board as you would a wooden chopping board.
