Which Cutting Board is Right for Me?
Now that you’ve made your decision to invest in the foundation of your cooking skills and experience, here are some tips to help narrow down your choices.
Type of Wood
Between the 3 most popular US domestic hardwoods- cherry, maple, and walnut– maple is certainly the best selection. Maple is extremely stable and extremely durable under the conditions that any discerning chef will throw at their cutting board.
Maple wood boards can handle a wide variety of applications- from moist climates to dryer homes and still keep its structural qualities. At woodcuttingboardstore.com we use a species called “rock maple” which parallels in hardness to many exotic imported woods on the market today. Maple is clean and very straight grained with very few imperfections throughout the material selection.
