We had a hard time in finding an ideal cutting board for our kitchen. A wooden cutting board does have a better shock absorbing ability so it’s more comfortable to use but it’s usually bulky in size and thus difficult to clean. A plastic one is indeed handy and easy to clean but it’s also easy to go moldy.
Not until recent years have we discovered some options of mold-proof cutting board but we still didn’t buy one because they are quite pricey. However, we recently discovered that it’s not that expensive if buy one from Amazon.
In this article we are going to review our recently bought Epicurean mold-proof cutting board and share the steps of buying the cutting board on Amazon.
Epicurean防霉砧板介紹 Mold-proof Cutting Board
This is the plastic cutting board we have used for quite awhile. It went moldy quite fast. Worse still, when we chop it a bit harder, there will be some plastic crumb being chopped off. It’s quite a headache for us when we are making dishes like pork patty.
After some research, we decided to buy 2 pieces of USA made Epicurean mold-proof cutting board. We learnt that it’s made of wood fibre which has undergone high pressure processing to make it dense and rigid. It thus prevents bacterial growth and infiltration of blood into the cutting board. This makes the Epicurean cutting board a more hygienic choice.
In just a week the cutting board we ordered on Amazon arrived
Unboxing! They are as thin as what we could see online and lighter than we expected

On one side, there is a pit in black. When you cut something wet, the juicy stays in the pit instead of running all the way to the countertop. What a considerate design!
Flip to the other side for chopping dry food
We use separate cutting board for raw and cooked food. For cooked food we use this smaller one.
Another thing good about this cutting board is that we can wash it with detergent. Previously when we used a wooden cutting board we were advised not to use detergent to clean it as the detergent filters into the cutting board. Yet, washing the cutting board merely by tap water doesn’t really sound like a good idea to us especially when we use it for cutting some oily food. Using this Epicurean one is less worrying because we can just wash it the way we like.
This is the sound of the cutting board. As you can hear, it’s quite firm and rigid and we think this is the only disadvantage of the cutting board because that means the shock absorbing ability is relatively weak. It should be quite tiring to use this cutting board for a long time
After 2 months of using it, there is no trace of molding at all. We saw reviews online and people say it really doesn’t go moldy even after long time of using it
You may use sand paper to remove the scratches on the cutting board but we are fine with them. A cutting board looks better if it has some scratches haha

Our major cookware collection is not cutting boards. Instead, it’s cast iron pots…
