    hi shree,,,,
    I'm still using the wooden boards...but hv never seen wood dust off the board !!?!?! maybe try the branded wooden boards, I think they are worth the money. the ones u get in IKEA are also really good. I think glass is the best but only thing is that we hv to handle it carefully as can slip easliy. But wooden is sturdy & last long.

    Hi,
    Why don`t you try cutting sheets from BED BATH AND BEYOND.
    No particles,lightweight and multipurpose for chappathi making also.
    It comes in different colors. I am using it for a long time. Another advantage is you can fold little bit and pour the cut vegetables directly
    to the pan.
    Hope this will help!

    hi vidya,

    my friend uses the sheet and that also leaves the plastic particles behind while cutting, so have to replace very often.

    hi joshila,

    we got the bamboo one from ikea few months back and it says u cannot cut onions on that as the smell will not go from the board also i read lots of instructions for the maintainance so finally gave it back. how about yours does it have any restrictions as to what cannot be cut in that. do share. thanx in advance.

    I use the plastic thin ones only which I got almost 5 yrs back.It comes in packs of 4.It is called KitchenZONE(silicone ).I used one sheet for almost 3 yrs and nothing went wrong with it ,since it got a little stained,threw it away and now I am using the second sheet for almost 1 .5yrs now,nothing wrong with it till date.I am surprised that even with that,you are getting plastic particles coming out,I've not found any till date and it is so convenient for cutting and then folding to put the vegetables etc into the kadai,vessels etc.

    I got wooden board from Bed Bath and Beyond and it is very sturdy. I use it to make chapathi too. So far I do not have issues with cutting onions or garlic. The only instruction I remember is it's need to hand wash (no dishwasher) and need to apply vegetable oil once in a month. It's working great and no chipped wooden particles so far. It's worth the price
