We ahve about six cutting boards of different size s. I have a great wooden board that is about 20 years old . I never use it for anything except bread making and veggie chopping. We have the man made ones in a white for veggies etc We have a nice size Rubbermade in red. This the one that we use for meats, chicken and fish. Being red we can easily identify it for the meats
Keep on track

A wooden cutting board should never be put in water. I lean mine in the empty side of the sink and scrub with a nylon scrubbie and a bit of dish detergent after use. I then lean it upright against the backsplash until it dries, and store it flat. Also, every once in a while, I oil it with mineral oil, which can be purchased in the drug store. I use the oil also for my wooden cooking utensils, because I like the gleam they have when I'm finished! I just put a bit of the oil on a cheesecloth square and buff away.
NOTE: Be sure the oil says something such as "for consumption". Don't make a mistake and use furniture oil.

My point was that you can look at a variety of types and decide for yourself. I can't see a board made of glass, it would be dangerous. Silicone or plastic type material is good because it is durable and doesn't absorb anything from the food.
