Oversized cutting boards made of durable plastic or Mexican teak are some good types of cutting boards, according to research conducted by The Sweet Home. Another good type of cutting board is the Midori Way Extra Large and Thick Bamboo Cutting Board, with reviewers on Amazon.com rating it five out of five stars. Chefs, an online retailer of professional-grade kitchen supplies, considers the John Boos Walnut Cutting Board to be a good option as well.
The Sweet Home names Prepworks large white polyethylene cutting board, measuring over 17 inches by 11 inches, as the best cutting board but notes that the OXO Good Grips 15-inch by 21-inch polypropylene cutting board provides a better oversized option. The two large plastic boards offer ample cutting space, are lightweight and easily disinfected. Priced at around $43 and $25, respectively, both are inexpensive options, as of 2016. The Sweet Home also recommends the Proteak Rectangular Edge-Grain Cutting Board, measuring 20 inches by 15 inches, as a wooden alternative. It provides a large chopping surface and a good cutting feel, but requires more careful cleaning and costs around $110.
A highly reviewed and highly rated option on Amazon.com is Midori Way’s oversized cutting board that’s made of eco-friendly bamboo, measures 18 inches by 12 inches and costs about $30. Reviewers state that it has a generous size, good construction and an excellent finish. The John Boos Walnut Cutting Board is also a good oversized cutting board. It is available in three options, and the largest and most expensive measures 24 inches by 18 inches at a cost of about $202.
