Cutting Board / Chopping Block
With the invention of Chinese
cleaver, cutting board was also invented along. Usually
made of good, solid hardwood heavy cutting board preserves not
only your kinve's edge but also your countertops. Every Chinese
have at least one or more than one.
Our cutting board was actually the cross section of a heavy
hardwood bought at supermarket.
Just visit your favorite department, discount, or grocery store.
But before you buy a few things have to consider.
What you will be chopping or cutting most.
Choose a suitable size at least able to chop up a chicken carcass,
must be heavy. Can be any shape, but I prefer a single piece
Try using the cutting board available in your
kitchen. Place a damp cloth below the cutting board to stabilize
during cutting. No matter which type of board you select, hardwood
or plastic — work with it only on a steady, level surface
that doesn't slip.
Cleaning your cutting board thoroughly with
hot, soapy water between uses.
Investing in two different boards is another possibility.
To remove the odors of strong foods, thoroughly wash your cutting
board and then rub the cutting surface with a freshly cut lemon
Cutting board care, after every cooking, cutting
board should be wash with warm soapy water with a scrub, wipe
and hang dry.
Note: Tempered glass cutting board not sutible
for Chinese cleaver.
