The 10 Best chopping boards

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Whether you want to dice veg, chop meat, or just slice up a salad, there’s a surface here to suit every culinary need.

1. Joseph Joseph Rinse & Chop

£16, Selfridges.com

A very clever board. It has hinges down the middle, allowing you to slide your prepared fruit and veg down off into the pan. It also has a colander at the end.

2. Catskill Reversible Maple Pastry Board

£39.95, kitchentrolleys.biz

The attraction here is the series of useful baking measurements printed on the board and a ruler line for the perfectionist pâtissier.

3. Gamepad Chopping Board

£15, firebox.com

You don't have to be a hardcore gamer to recognise that this glass-topped chopping board – designed to look like a retro games console – is damned cool.

4. John Lewis oak

£30, johnlewis.com

Made especially for slicing those fresh loaves that cover your work surface in crumbs, this board has a series of sunken rings in its oak surface to catch them all.

5. Joseph Joseph Vinyl Record

£14, selfridges.com

Not the most heavy-duty board, but if you just want to slice the odd veg or a loaf, this glass board is just about the grooviest thing you're likely to do it on.

6. Lakeland Flexi-mats

£8.29 for 5, lakeland.co.uk

Tough, lightweight and, because they're less than 1mm thick, they're flexible enough to roll into a funnel so you can get rid of your off-cuts with ease.

7. Good Housekeeping beech

£29.50, fatgiraffe.com

Comes with a double-bladed Mezzaluna knife, so is ideal for quickly slicing herbs and the odd veg. Its glossy finish means it could double up as a cheese board.

8. Java chopping board

£27, debenhams.com

As chunky and solid as an oak board but the Java is made from a much more unusual bamboo wood. The chequered finish is also gentle on your kitchen knives.

9. OCD board

£21, liberty.co.uk

You can make every slice perfect and every angle precise on this OCD board, which is covered in a series of ruled squares and angle projections.

10. Linea oak and slate

£35, houseoffraser.co.uk

Slate is always a good addition to a kitchen but its real advantage is that it's pretty much impervious to knife blades, so doesn't develop bacteria-filled ridges.
