The Best Cutting Boards in 2022

Jeffrey Westbrook

Cutting boards can make a huge statement in a kitchen. If you’ve been stashing yours away, stop—we spotlighted several must-buys with the majority coming from our August/September 2022 Kitchen Issue that prove style and function go hand in hand. In short, these well-designed boards most definitely deserve a spot on your countertop and even if you don’t cook, the staple pieces make excellent serving platters for the charcuterie setups everyone loves so much.

While there are a ton of practical wood options ahead, we’ll also be blowing you away with other standout picks including a cool confetti board coming in all kinds of colors to a next-level plastic purchase featuring two hues in one. The only material we’ve stayed clear of (pun intended) is glass. Not only will chopping on glass dull out your knife, but more importantly, it’s super dangerous and can result in chipping. Keep scrolling and peep our fabulous finds below, so you can dice and slice in style!

Is wood or plastic better for cutting boards?

If you have the budget, go with a wood cutting board. Wood lasts longer and will keep your knives sharper. The only thing is, they’re not dishwasher friendly, so be prepared to hand wash, wipe, and remember to oil your cutting board a few times a year to prevent it from drying out and cracking.

What’s the best kind of cutting board for cutting meat?

When it comes to cooking meat, a plastic board is your best bet. Since it’s easier to sanitize (hello, dishwasher), rest assured you won’t have any bacteria buildup. Plastic has a reputation for not being as aesthetic, but our multi-colored and confetti picks above prove that’s not always the case.

House Beautiful‘s Director of Editorial Special Projects Carisha Swanson and Senior Shopping Editor Isis Briones rounded up these cutting boards that are pretty and functional in order to deliver an extensive list of products you’ll be proud to show off in your kitchen.
