1. Cut on a wooden chopping board
Wood is considered as the best material for cutting boards for two main reasons. It doesn’t hurt knives making them blunt and it lasts longer. For the case that we are talking about today, the first reason is the most important one. Because knives and cutting boards always work together. They can either damage each other or help each other last longer together.
Hard surfaces like ceramic tiles, glass, basalt, metal or marble chopping boards blunt knives' blades more quickly since they are harder than the knife itself. They may look cool but they are also not as sturdy as wooden cutting boards, which is terrible, especially when dealing with heavy-duty steel knives. They are just the worst for knives.
Make sure to also use separate cutting boards for cutting raw and cooked food. That will reduce the risk of causing bacteria.
