They are super easy to clean and dishwasher safe. They also come in a handy storage case which will allow the boards to sit neatly in your kitchen. 

Bottom line

When it comes to choosing a cutting board for your kitchen, there are so many to choose from. We love the Kitchen Elements premium board (opens in new tab) because it’s simple, but ruler indent is such a unique design feature that really makes it easy to prepare food. Also, the bamboo is 100% organic which means that it’s strong, durable and will last. 

The Joseph Joseph index (opens in new tab) chopping boards do not only offer a safe way to prepare your food, but they also look good too. We love that they are easy to clean and are designed specifically to prevent cross-contamination of different food types.
