cutting boards and my lack of knife skills

I was recently given the opportunity to review a new line of cutting boards from an Ohio-based company called Cute Cutting Boards. Up until the afternoon my heart and wine bottle shaped boards from Cute Cutting Boards arrived, I had been using some beat-up cutting boards.

My biggest issue with my previous boards is that I feel like they don't come clean enough. (I'm a clean freak, not a cook, so my priorities may be different than foodies out there.) The Cute Cutting Boards are heavy duty, made of solid acrylic similar to Corian, dishwasher safe (yay!) and best of all: anti-microbial. These babies get CLEAN. 

If you know me, you know I'm not too handy in the kitchen and my knife skills leave a lot to be desired. But I can cut lemons and garlic, that's about it. Both cutting boards are heavy enough to stay in place on the countertop - which is good for my fingers.

If you do serious cutting, prepping and cooking, I would recommend one of their boards with a larger shape such as the heart that I have, the pig or the pineapple. I have my sights set on that pineapple as a gift for some family and friends.

Cute Cutting Boards has good prices and an easy online shopping site.

Oh yeah, these babies can also be used as trivets for hot dishes. I love a multi-purpose item! Check them out, support American made products and let me know what you think.
