How To Prevent Cross Contamination
In our kitchen we have multiple cutting boards that we use for different purposes, however, we recommend at least have 4 for each of the recommended food types.
- My go to board for raw meats, poultry or seafood
- Used for Veggies/Bread and a different one for dairy type products
- Pretty but I don’t personally trust using glass to cut anything. I use my glass cutting board as a table top when mixing drinks, Why?, because we have it so making use of the it.Types of Cutting Boards In the Market
