Sometimes you’re so used to things that you use every day that you don’t even notice them. For example, kitchen accessories, and more specifically a cutting board. What board do you have in your kitchen? Wooden or plastic, and maybe even bamboo? Let’s say in other words: what material the cutting board, which your family uses every day is made of?
Each material has its own pros and cons.
A Wooden cutting board may shrink, crack and sometimes even mold in the corners if you wash it or use it frequently. The most unpleasant thing about these boards is the smell they obtain and retain. To avoid this for as long as possible, you should thoroughly wash and dry the cutting board of this type.
Yes, plastic boards are not so afraid of moisture, but they still have a short lifespan. In addition, you should carefully choose boards from plastic that do not contain harmful substances. High temperature can damage plastic, so it is not recommended to place hot pots on such a cutting board.
Bamboo is more moisture-resistant than wood, but it cannot withstand the heavy pounding, so we do not recommend making a meatloaf or cutting frozen meat on it.
Xiaomi comes to the rescue with its new surprising products. Its new cutting boards are made of ecologically clean rice husks. You heard right — they are made of a rice hull!
The set, which appeared on the Xiaomi crowdfunding platform not so long ago, includes two cutting boards made of lightweight and natural material. The cutting board from rice husks — sounds original, doesn’t it? The manufacturer of this kitchen utensil is Suiyuan, one of the Xiaomi ecosystem companies.
However, originality is not the only feature of this product. The board from the rice husk is more resistant to moisture than the wooden and bamboo board and is environmentally safer than plastic. It’s light, easy to clean and releases odors quickly once it is dry — it’s definitely the winner among all the material!
