The Kindest Cutting Board

I’ve had a couple of korin hi-soft boards for about a year. Really liked using it for that time. The larger one I have has warped slightly but nothing major. 
 

I’m more bothered about the surface really, it’s marked up quite badly - scratches and dings which seem to trap food debris. I’ve read that you can sand or smooth out the surface, has anyone done this with theirs? Any tips on how best to do it?

 

That's definitely happened to the one above as well.  And it really shows where I've used my serrated knife to slice, say, a loaf of bread for freezeing. 

 

They *(Korin) and other places do sell a sanding tool...

Looks like I'll be getting one of wood core boards at some point.

 

 

Maybe throw a towel under it?

Yeah, that's what I'm doing and kind of always did with wood cutting boards. It still can wobble unexpectedly - just my screw up, so I've punished myself by ordering a Hasegawa.

@&roid 

 

where did you order the ' sanding tool ' from ?

 

Korin seems to have one , but it looks a bit different from the

 

pink one

 

https://hasegawaboards.com/scraper.html

 

can't figure out how to ord3er from the above , the pink one

 

it seems to have two sides 

 

unsure bout the one ( out of stock ) from Karin

 

thanks

 


I picked mine up from a UK company called dentons. The scraper was only about £7 but delivery nearly the same again. Old me would have found enough other things on their website to make the delivery “sensible”, but I’ve turned over a new leaf and promised myself I’d stop buying stuff I don’t need on a whim!
