Hi I’m Steve Ziegler, product expert at the WEBstaurant Store, and I’m excited to tell you about one of my favorite kitchen tools: the flexible cutting board! In most cases these sturdy but flexible sheets of plastic will prove more useful, more cost-effective, and more sanitary than your regular cutting board. Let me take a minute to show you why I love these things. By far the best reason to use a flexible cutting board is the actual flexibility. If you’re using a regular cutting board, transporting vegetables to your bowl can be somewhat of a pain, as you can see. But not with the flexible cutting board! Look how easy this is. If you have a small hole, like on a food processor, you can just fold it up a little bit more and guide some rough chopped vegetables right in there. Now let’s say you’re doing some on-site cooking. At your sauté station you need to get ingredients into the pan, and you can see how easy it is with a flexible cutting board. What’s more is if you have to move your cutting boards around to a location or just around your kitchen, these flexible cutting boards are just so much easier to use. Being a former bartender, I know the importance of doing things quickly on a busy night, and running out of lemons or limes during the middle of a rush can be a real drag. Here is where the small size of flexible cutting mat can come in handy. You can see right there that it’s the perfect bartender’s mat. And when you’re done with these, and you need to clean them, they go right in a dishwasher rack. Easy to clean. Now that you’ve seen the versatility of our flexible cutting boards, there are a few more points I’d like to make. First off, you may have noticed this black piece of material underneath my cutting mats all day. This is our Board Buddy material that is great for underneath any type of cutting board to keep them from slipping. It is so much more sanitary and much more flat than a wet towel. The other thing is that with these flexible cutting boards, if you buy one of these and it’s not quite the right size, one of the beauties of these things is that they’re completely customizable with just your standard kitchen shears. In fact, you can even take your one larger cutting board and you can turn it into two cutting boards. So it is very versatile. Here you see a regular cutting board and a flexible cutting board. The thing I want you to think about is this: What part of this half inch cutting board are you actually using? It’s just the surface. Now unless your primary cutting tool is something like this, you’re really not going to get much use out of the rest of the half inch thick of plastic here. What’s worse is that when this gets old and warn you’re going to need to replace it at three times the cost of one of these flexible cutting boards. The other thing I want you to think about is transport. Six of these flexible cutting boards weigh less than a single one of these. Could you imagine having to transport six of these cutting boards around? The last thing I wanted to mention is that in addition to our standard flexible cutting boards, we also stock Table Crafts’ set of colored cutting boards. This is great if cross-contamination is an issue at your work place. They come in a pack of six colors; one for every food group.
