Kitchen Tip of the Day: Anchored Cutting Board

Anchored Cutting Board


When using a cutting board on most surfaces, the boards can often slip and move around as pressure is applied while cutting.  This is especially true when plastic boards are being used.  In order to prevent the board from slipping or moving while being used, it is necessary to anchor the board to the counter or surface.  Simply lightly moisten a paper towel or dish towel and place under the cutting board, making sure the towel is completely flat.  The towel will stop the board from moving, and doubles as a cleanup helper when done cutting and chopping!
