Which of these has more germs? A. Cutting board B. Toilet seat.
Dr. Gerba, a professor of environmental microbiology at the University of Arizona, answered ‘Cutting boards are just terrible’, because germs and bacteria hide in crevices, cracks and scratches on the cutting boards.

Types of kitchen cutting boards may be divided into two basic types, wood cutting boards and plastic cutting boards.
However, wooden cutting boards to get scratched easily and harbor harmful bacteria.
Wood boards require maintenance so, you should clean wooden cutting boards with a dish detergent and dry them in the sun often,  if they're to remain in good condition.

Wooden cutting boards are easy to absorb water or oil and they are more likely to promote bacterial growth in their crevices.

Look!  There're countless knife scars and crevices.

Those knife scars and crevices cannot be prevented completely as you cut ingredient on a cutting board.

Plastic cutting boards are no exception.

Plastic cutting boads doesn't absorb water so they couldn't relatively soak up bacteria too. Also, plastic sufaces are safer because, they're difficult to get scratch and doesn't be saturated with the smell of food as easily as do wooden cutting boards.
But, they sould be cleaned and dried thoroughly. You shouldn't leave cutting boards to soak in water  because, such water can breed bacteria. Also, compared with wooden cutting boards, cutting on a plastic cutting boards feels unnatural.

If you pour the boiling water directly on that cutting boards made of plastic material, totally the endocrine disrupting chemical is released.
And so you've got to sterilize and dry the boards, using detergent, lemon juice, green tea, charcoal ash suchlike. Otherwise, the cutting boards naturally carry bacteria on themselves. If those bacteria is transfered to food, it can be transfered to your mouth or other foods also.

 Then, how can we use the cutting boards without worrying about those bacteria?
Shouldn't anti-microbial cutting boards that you don't need to worry about those bacteria be possible?

Here is the answer.
Biomiad Products that made of TPU new plastic material, are now released.


What is TPU?
TPU is an elastomer that is fully thermoplastic polyurethane.
New material, TPU is excellent for the anti-bacterial effect and not harmful to human health and environment also. It has the very high heat resistance of 302℉.
Their antibacterial effect is approved by FDA and certififed under swiss test and SGS.
Biomaid TPU cutting boards are made of new material, free from both BPA and any endocrine-disrupting.
The collection of cutting boards is available in 7 different colors - charcoal, red, blue, green, violet, olive green and ston gray.


It’s a good idea to distinguish cutting boards to avoid possible cross contamination in many ways.
You'd better to have cutting boards in at least 3 different colors.
Also they are available in a greater range of colors and shapes, which offers the opportunity to give your kitchen a more modern look!


And the most interesting of all is just its slim body.
I don't like heavy and thick cutting board. It is hard to carry and place easily due to its size and it'll put more stress on your wrist.
The lighter and thinner the cutting boards, the fastest your cooking and they're less stress on your wrist than a wooden cutting board.
It doesn't take up much space in kitchen due to slim body and also it's handy for moving during cooking.

You can put up the boards in around your kitchen sink or counter top and easy to pull out them to use.

TPU cutting boards are very flexible, which can be useful.
For example, you can chop ingredient and then bend the board to put them right into the pan without it scattering out.
I stopped using other boards made of acrylic or enamel because, knives would most likely dull more quickly when cutting on those cutting boards.

Besides, Biomaid cutting board has officially been proved to have 99.9% of antibacterial effect at the laboratory. There is almost no need of any other sterilization, because the natural material doesn’t allow bacterial to enter itself. Best of all, this effect lasts until the product is disused. Having 99.9% germ-killing power, arkshell antimicrobial technology is better than 95% antimicrobial detergent, 99.6% antimicrobes of bleach and hot water dipping.

Nowadays, Super bacteria is big issue in the world so, in this reason, you should sterilize cutting boards.
Besides the antimicrobial we use from nature, not chemical like micro-ban.

Now, let me recite some merits of Biomaid TPU cutting board.
1st. The flexibility of the board allows for spill-free transfer of chopped foods.
2nd. TPU boards sticks to counter top to prevent cutting surface from slipping.
3rd. Easy dry, washing, and keeping
4th. Non-slid cutting surface protects chopping fodds from spattering.
5th. The great flexibility of TPU board won't dull knives and make cutting sound less.
6th. Non-toxic TPU material, used for medical blood bag, ringer tube and food container, is harmless to human body.

Do you want to use a cutting boards that have a hundred times more bacteria than a toilet seat?

You do need to take care of a cutting boards for your family.
