Uses for Plastic Cutting Mats

While growing up, my mom used a wood cutting board, and I have used a wood cutting board all of my adult life. I have had the same one for 25 years now, I scrub it with disinfecting dish soap immediately after use, and let it dry in the dish drain. I have never experienced any problems with it. I would trust a glass cutting board before I would a plastic one. I think if your knife cuts into the board you would get particles of plastic in your food without realizing it.
Hello, just wanted to say you also have to be careful with plastic as it is very porous and will leech stuff into it. Even after a good cleaning there will be stuff left in all the tiny little holes leaving room for bacteria growth.
