Thanks!

Plastic dollar store ones for dirty prep, and I have made some cutting boards for larger things and when I am feeling fancy.

We have an epicurian board which we put in the dishwasher all the time and it works well. Its a bit of a hard surface, you will find people say its not good for your knives. Its fine for us.

I hate the plastic boards because they eventually develop gouges and scratches which look ugly but more importantly can harbour bacteria.

Epicurian ones dont scratch easily? I use ceramic knives

Its a very hard surface so it won't scratch or gouge (at least not deep ones, maybe light scratches). Its a hard surface which is why people say its not good for your knives but whatever, I have no problems with it. It looks good (looks like wood), thin, light, and goes in the dishwasher. My wife was much happier than my old wooden board I used to baby.

One negative is that the surface is very loud whenever the knife makes contact. Hard to describe but say you are chopping a lot of veggies, the "chop chop chop" sound is much louder than a wooden board or plastic board.
I recall they are quite pricy, I only got one when i saw a deal on RFD from the bay a while ago.

We put our Epicurean boards in the dishwasher as well. Not sure if this issue is a result of that, but ours have warped over the years, so they’re no longer nice and flat. So we have to make sure to be using the right side, or the board will wobble and spin.
