cutting board video

I like the America's Test Kitchen reviews. This one has a lot of good information on cutting boards, good information for knife sharpeners. Here is a link:

Thanks for the video link, Ken. I was surprised that the long-held opinion that end grain boards were preferred was debunked in the video. I made one of those many years ago but retired it because of concerns about some joints opening that could trap food particles. About 15 years ago I made a flat grain board out of 3/4” maple from Home Depot and it is still serving us well. It’s light enough to take to the sink for cleaning. I very rarely oil it though.

Interesting video with some good practical information. I wish they would have included the soft Japanese board and polycarbonite boards as well. Here is what I use under my boards to prevent any slippage.Especially needed with the plastic ones.
