There are two other fairly common materials, besides wood and plastic, that cutting boards are made out of. One is bamboo, which you should avoid at all costs. Bamboo is an amazing material, but it’s insanely hard. That makes it ideal for flooring, but it’s so hard that it can dull or even damage your knives. The other material, though, is great: rubber. It’s incredibly sturdy, and hygienic. But most importantly, if you’re using fancy knives, this is the board to get: it’s by far the easiest on expensive knife blades. The peachy color on this one is also very chic—it looks like a giant eraser.
