Cooking without the right kitchen equipment and utensils can be a tiresome and frustrating process. Fun fact: A lot of the delicacies you’ve enjoyed at Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, and other special occasions have been prepared using only a knife and a cutting board.
Imagine having to make salad and there’s no cutting board. How would you even get that perfect steak slice without a proper cutting board?
Cutting boards, which are essential tools in your kitchen, greatly affect your culinary experience. Having the right cutting board for easy food preparation and service is an important decision and one that can get a tad tricky. How will you know you’ve bought or are about to buy the perfect cutting board?
Here are some features you need to look out for when shopping for the perfect cutting board.
NATURAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY
An ideal cutting board is made from natural sources and is harmless to the environment. What better material to meet these criteria than wood? Unlike plastic, wooden boards pose no threat to the environment, even after they are out of use.
Peko&Co bamboo cutting boards are not only made of wood, they are also eco-friendly. Their natural, non-porous nature make them scratch, cut and damage resistant while also keeping our environment safe.
BOARD THICKNESS AND CUTTING SURFACE
For quick and effective food preparation, cutting boards should have a large surface area to accommodate food items that need to be sliced, chopped and served at once.
Peko&Co bamboo cutting boards are your best bet since they not only have a large surface area for your food, they also have a thick cutting surface that can withstand stress from cutting, dicing, chopping and slicing processes. And best of all, you get to do all of this at once!
It is not unusual to find mold on wood surfaces and this concern has drawn people away from wooden boards, leaving some people to turn to their kitchen counter for cutting purposes. Plastic isn’t any better as bacteria hidden in scratched plastic boards are difficult to clean.
Bamboo boards are not like other wooden options; they have antibacterial and antifungal properties and are equally odor resistant. With Peko&Co bamboo cutting boards, you can rest assured that food is safe from germs and cross-contamination from other food items. You don’t need to worry about finding mold or having a nasty odor on your cutting board.
Cutting boards shouldn’t only be thick with a large surface; they should also be crafted in a way that makes them easy to handle, for a smooth transition from the kitchen counter to the grill, refrigerator or dining room table. Cutting boards should also be designed in a way that make them look attractive.
Peko&Co bamboo cutting boards have grooves crafted in them to help reduce mess on the kitchen counter and in the kitchen generally. These grooves are wide enough to catch and hold liquids, oil, dressing and leaks.
Peko&Co bamboo cutting boards are made from end grain wood, making them tough, durable and organic. They are also crafted with handles for smooth and quick movements.
