CiCi, you do a lot of great but…raw meat on the wooden cutting board 🙁

1, Chinese clever…because I grew up with it. It’s very versatile and no respectable Asian will ignore such a treasure. 2, Japanese gyuto…because it’s not a “rocking cut”, curve belly, French chef knife.

That’s not true Chinese Chef only use 1 knife. There are thin, moderate thin and bone chopper. Although they have similar shape, but not the same. And another reason for this all-in-one culture for knife and cookware– wok is because typical Chinese commoners are poor most of the time through out history and the chef for the emperor got all the fansy tools.

Jonathon Simon says:

I’m afraid that I must disagree with Richard Soltis comment on cutting board saftey. Nothing wrong with wood boards and utensils for cooking and preparing meats, especially hard woods typically used with good cutting boards and utensils. You are taking the bait on the hype if you believe otherwise. Its just that wood is porous, so you have to do a good job of cleaning it. But then all the synthetic boards I own also have a roughened surface (I guess for grip now that I think about it) that (same as wood) can be even further scared by the knife blade. At my last house, the cutting board was glass, and built into the counter, but it too had a quite rough surface for germs to cozy up in. So that makes total sense what CiCi has researched about bacterial growth on cutting boards. Just depends on the specific board – not the material itself. Unless you are cutting on a polished smooth surface your, going to have to work at keeping it from harboring nasty germs.

Although I was quite confident that my logic is correct, after writing this, I thought I would try to find some reliable confirmation for any skeptics. A major U.S. newspaper writes this in 2014:  
… FDA’s official opinion is that both wood and plastic are safe so long as they’re cleaned well and replaced often.
