Select the Right Cutting Board

Cutting boards are one of those things that nobody really thinks about, but everyone needs. And when you do start thinking about them, you wonder “which one should I get?” There’s polyethylene cutting boards, rubber boards, wood cutting boards, plastic cutting boards, and then there are the accessories. Are accessories even necessary?

Although most homes have one or two cutting boards at the most, restaurants are supposed to have an endless supply. By law they are required to have at least five color-coded cutting boards designated for meat, fish, vegetables, poultry, cooked foods, and dairy products.  This prevents cross-contamination especially in this day and age where allergies run rampant.

Still, some people pass on a decadent chocolate cake or apple pie because the portions are too large. The reasons tend to be that they are too full, the dessert has too many calories, or it’s too expensive. As a resolution to their problems, restaurants are introducing miniature desserts. These less expensive treats are bite size desserts that have a big taste but without all the calories.

Therefore, I quickly skimmed the article to see if in fact these five pieces of cooking equipment were indeed indispensable.

Is it essentially better to buy new ovens, mixers, and fryers? Or should restaurants and bakeries purchase used items so they can put their money elsewhere?

 Most people don’t realize the amount of money it costs to not only open a business but keep it running.
