Cross-contamination happens when bacteria from uncooked foods—especially raw poultry and meats—comes into contact with other ready-to-eat foods like fruits and vegetables. If this bacteria is consumed, it can lead to foodborne illnesses such as salmonella and E. Coli. This is where the Seville Classics cutting board comes into play. It comes with seven different colorful cutting mats, each with a corresponding icon (for example, a tomato for produce and a cow for red meat) to help you stay consistent about which foods you cut on what board.
Not only are the mats cute and flexible, but they come with non-slip silicone underside and are dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. Plus, once the cutting boards are cleaned, they can be easily stored inside of an attractive bamboo cutting board that doubles as a prep station or a serving board. Charcuterie, anyone?
Food safety can be complicated, but prepping your meals is easy with this Seville Classics Easy-To-Clean Bamboo Cutting Board. The colorful labeled mats make it easy to keep foods separated and safe to eat. Simply throw them in the dishwasher and store them inside the eye-catching bamboo board until your next meal.
