Wooden Chopping Boards vs Plastic Chopping Boards

When it comes to choosing the right chopping board for your kitchen, the debate between wooden and plastic chopping board options often arises. Here's a breakdown of the pros and cons of each, along with recommended uses:

Wooden Chopping Boards:


  • Natural Aesthetic: Wooden chopping boards add warmth and character to your kitchen, complementing any decor.
  • Knife-Friendly Surface: Wood is gentle on knife blades, helping to maintain their sharpness over time.
  • Antibacterial Properties: Studies have shown that certain types of wood, such as maple and teak, possess natural antimicrobial properties, making wooden chopping boards inherently more hygienic.


  • Requires Maintenance: Wooden chopping boards need regular care, including proper cleaning and occasional oiling, to prevent drying and cracking.
  • Not Dishwasher Safe: Exposure to excessive moisture and heat can damage wooden chopping boards, so they should be hand-washed and dried immediately after use.

Ideal for:

  • Chopping fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
  • Serving cheese, charcuterie, and appetisers at gatherings.

Plastic Chopping Boards


  • Dishwasher Safe: Plastic chopping boards are generally dishwasher safe, making them easy to clean and sanitise.
  • Lightweight and Durable: Plastic boards are lightweight and resistant to moisture, making them suitable for outdoor use or camping trips.
  • Budget-Friendly: Plastic chopping boards are often more affordable than their wooden counterparts.


  • Prone to Knife Marks: Plastic boards can develop deep knife marks over time, which can harbour bacteria if not properly cleaned.
  • Less Aesthetically Pleasing: Plastic chopping boards may lack the natural beauty and charm of wooden boards.

Ideal for:

  • Cutting raw meat, poultry, and fish to prevent cross-contamination.
  • Convenient for tasks that require frequent washing and sanitising, such as cutting onions or garlic.

Wooden Chopping Boards FAQs

How do you clean and sanitise a wooden chopping board?

To clean and sanitise a wooden chopping board, wash it with hot, soapy water, then rinse thoroughly. For added sanitisation, you can also apply a mixture of vinegar and water or hydrogen peroxide and water, followed by air-drying.

How to oil a wooden chopping board?

To oil a wooden chopping board, apply food-grade mineral oil or beeswax finish in a thin, even layer, using a clean cloth. Allow the oil to penetrate the wood for several hours or overnight before wiping off any excess.

Which wood is best for a chopping board?

Hardwoods such as maple, bamboo, and acacia are popular choices for chopping boards due to their durability and natural antimicrobial properties. Choose a dense, close-grained wood that can withstand the rigours of daily use in the kitchen.
