Cutting up veggies, meats, and cheeses is a cinch with a sturdy wood chopping block. Most wood chopping blocks are heavier than a traditional cutting board. This extra depth creates a strong, broad surface with plenty of heft to it. Chopping blocks make good surfaces for cutting meat, especially raw meat, as the extra weight keeps it from moving around on the countertop. Some wood cutting boards include a groove around the outer edge, which serves to catch any juices that release when cutting meat, fruits, or veggies.
Beautiful wood chopping blocks are available from eBay in various shapes and sizes. A large block is better for those who work with large pieces of meat, or you can use these blocks for serving a spread of meat and cheese on. Smaller boards work well on limited countertop space and for cutting limited portions. Pick out a wooden chopping block today to start enjoying the benefits and beauty it provides.
