I love the dishwasher safe cutting boards. Usually made from Plastic, glass or any other surface that slips. If you heavily dampen one ( two paper towels if thay are thin). Place them under your board for rolling or hand chopping. The board will stay in place.For a long job, wet it again as needed.
I like the reusable boards because the wood is hard to maintain.Plastic or tempered glass are easier. They often have glued on feet that come off in the dishwasher. This is better than replaing it. I just removed the feet when one falls off and this makes the product usefull again.

Cutting or slicing certain things can make a mess when juices run wild...save the mess by placing your cutting board inside a sheet pan or jellyroll pan...I place paper toweling under the cutting board with some overlap..slice away! the juices will run into the pan and if there are a lot of juices you have the toweling to help. I do this for meats, melon and anything I think will be really juicy.
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.
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
