We’ve been using relatively thick but flexible colored plastic cutting ‘boards’ to protect our chopping block for years. I think my wife gets them at BB&B. I can’t recall exactly but I think they’re the ones I drill a hole in at one end so they’ll hang on a hook on the side of our fridge. Anyway… after a while they all curl up making them problematic to use as there’s no longer a large enough flat surface. They’re not very expensive but it seems wasteful to replace them often.
I hand wash them and let them air dry, but my wife often sneaks them into the dishwasher. Any opinions as to the probable main reason they curl? Is it us or just what happens with plastic??? More serviceable options?
