They are all well made and durable and served me well.
All of these are highly rated. Yes a couple are a bit "pricey", but the quality is great. The old adage "you get what you pay for" sure rings true with all of these. Durable and reliable are the key things for me.
So here are the five that I consider my favorites.
They are easy care too. Just rinse them, dry them and put them away. Although I have put them in the dishwasher occasionally and they are still fine, I don't think they recommend that.
I bought the knife sharpener and knife covers sole on the same page too. The covers are a good protection for the blade as these puppies are sharp! And I only sharpen them once in a while, but the sharpener is nice to have.
The Epicurean series of cutting boards comes in natural wood fibers. This means they have the properties of a good wood cutting board, but can be put into the dishwasher. And they don't need to be oiled like wood ones. This is a win-win-situation for me.
They also can stand heat so I use mine as a trivet for hot pans sometimes. There is a hole to hang them, although I just lay mine up against the wall in the space behind my mixer too store them.
Yes, them - as I have two - one for meats and one for all the rest.
The best one I have found is this one. It solves all of my problems as it is dishwasher safe and has a silicone lip to keep the juices in and not run all over the counter.
By the way the word Fishonly is the brand name, not that you can only defrost fish! LOL!
I am just about ready to replace mine as the slicing wires are starting to bed a bit. So I have decided to replace it with this Westmark one.
This is dishwasher safe and looks easy to clean. Since there is a 5 year warranty on it, I expect that it will last a long time. After all Westmark is a company that makes good products and stands behind them,
I love using it for so many things. Of course I make Zucchini "Noodles" all the time, but I also use it for lots of other veggies I have made both white and sweet potato "curly fries". I love it for carrots and cucumber. And it is fun to use it for salad fixings too.
