My sister wanted a cutting board for Christmas. The one I bought her had a "channel" to collect meat juices on one side so they wouldn't go all over your counter. If you already have a cutting board, all you have to do is take a router and put the channel in with it and your all set! When you're done make sure you recondition the board with a little oil to keep it in good condition.2614
Rather than cutting grapes, cherries or cherry tomatoes one by one, try this. Arrange the fruit close together on a cutting board. Take a flat object (such as the flat part of a plate bottom), and place on top of the fruit. Press firmly, but gently. Run a sharp knife through the fruit, halfway between the flat object and the cutting board. Voila! Several fruit cut at once.
Keep a clean spray bottle filled with straight 5 percent vinegar in your kitchen near your cutting board and in your bathroom and use them for cleaning. I often spray the vinegar on our cutting board before going to bed at night, and donít even rinse but let it set overnight. The smell of vinegar dissipates within a few hours. Straight vinegar is also great for cleaning the toilet rim. Just spray it on and wipe off. 432
