We can’t say that a new chopping board is the most glamorous item we’ve ever purchased, but with all the cooking we’re doing at the moment, it’s certainly one of the most useful.

A good chopping board is essential and, according to the cleaning gurus at Hassle.com, they should be replaced every 12 months. 

One of the ways you can minimise germs and cross-contamination is to invest in a set of colour-coded chopping boards that will safeguard your kitchen hygiene and ensure raw and cooked foods do not transfer bacteria. 

In fact, they’re an essential in most professional kitchens.

These four non-slip boards from Joseph Joseph come with their own nifty storage container - which means no more precarious propping against the wall - and are specifically designed to prevent cross-contamination of different food types.

Plus, if all that doesn’t sound good enough, the board set is currently 30% off.

The illustrated, index-style tabs on each board indicate which food type they should be used for - raw meat, vegetables, raw fish or cooked food.

The knife-friendly boards feature easy-grip tabs with food-type icons, non-slip feet on both sides and sloping edges to catch crumbs and liquids.

They’re also easy to wipe down and can be popped into the dishwasher after use for ultimate ease.

Unsurprisingly, the boards have received over 400 reviews on Amazon, with one shopper saying: “Would highly recommend these. Love the different boards for different foods. Very sturdy and look great in our kitchen.”

Another wrote: “Love these chopping board they are strong and easy to clean and look good in the kitchen.”
