Construction of Wooden Boards
Wooden boards are constructed using the edge or end of the wood to reduce impact on the stainless steel blades.
Also called the “butcher’s block”, an end-grain board is the most versatile board for all kinds of cutting tasks from simple dicing to intensive chopping. It is constructed of end pieces to create a rebounding surface for knives as they impact on the upright fibres of the wood.
An edge-grain wooden board is crafted from the edge of the plank, creating a lower impact for knives than the flat side of the wood.
Colour Coded Plastic Chopping Boards
Colour-coded chopping boards help prevent cross contamination in the kitchen by helping cooks quickly identify the right chopping board for the job.
Here is the standard colour coding guide:
For raw red meats such as beef, pork, lamb, and the like
For raw chicken and other poultry
For raw fish like salmon or tuna, and other kinds of seafood
For cooked meat
For fresh produce including all kinds of fruits and vegetables
For freshly baked breads and dairy products like cheese
