How does one get excited about a chopping board? There are of course a wide range of bog standard and feature rich chopping boards on the market today, each with their pros and cons. One particular board growing in popularity are white marble chopping boards which offer a distinct upper class effect and can reside on the table top surface for all visitors to admire.
If an English man’s home is his castle, then in this day and age the kitchen must be his third cousin’s (twice removed) shed. But thanks to the recession many people are now dumping their cousin, twice removed and kitting their kitchens out in much needed kitchen accessories to not only look stylish but to be working instruments of food assembly.
The cost of marble has fallen recently allowing more stylish and well finished products to become accessible to more of the nation. While take aways, fast food and frozen meals are still on the menu, many people are cutting back and discovering the delights of home cooking and through financial necessity are actually finding the process an enjoyable and more healthy experience.
With new found pride in home cooking comes the inevitable upgrade of kitchen utensils and accessories from cutting knives to stoneware. All of which add a distinct touch of class and superiority to any welcoming kitchen. Marble chopping boards are vividly outspoken, place any Indian marble chopping board alongside a wooden board and the choice is pretty clear.
But do white marble chopping boards stand up to the test of time? Well, if you’re expecting any chopping board to outlast your 18th century mahogany table with all the cutting and daily wiping down, then no. Each and every chopping board, whether wooden, slate, plastic or rubber will have a life expectancy.
There is also the issue of bacteria, a topic we’re advised to worry about more than we actually should. White marble chopping boards do become stained from acidic foods over time and yes, while durable and hard wearing can fall to the fate of the vengeful knife and will become marked. Which chopping board doesn’t?
There is also the design aspect to consider with chopping boards, functionality is becoming a key part in chopping boards where plastic and rubber boards can probably offer much more than styled marble and wooden chopping boards. For instance becoming a scoop or have the ability to fold so as to easily move chopped foods to pans and saucers.
So when a person is considering a chopping board which is made of white marble one has to come to the conclusion that it is design, style and grace of place and the feature should be the marble itself rather than any added superior function.
