Topic tags/keywords: humor tip cuttingboard question

Hey all. So I was hoping someone could link the cutting board feet they use. I am looking for something that is adjustable (with a screw end that goes into the board and raised or lowered by turning) and made of rubber so they grip rather than slide. I have managed to find feet with each option but not both together.

I know there is a bit of debate on weather or not to use feet, but i noticed my boards may be dead level one day, then off by a hare the next (it may also be the surface the board is sitting on could be off). I figured the best fix would be to use feet that can be adjusted to the surface.

Also someone may have messed up while making the juice groove making it necessary the board have an established top and bottom (that will not often be seen). Yeah it was me… lol.

Thanks for the suggestion! I was hoping for something that can also be height adjusted so I don’t think that would suit my needs unfortunately.

Cutting board don’t need feet. #1 it prevents you from using both sides. #2 you are assuming the surface that you are placing it on is perfectly flat. #3 if they are rubber they are likely going to slide around on a damp surface and likely mark the surface. #4 they are going to make it difficult to store. #5 it’s another place for bacteria to hide. The best way to use a cutting board is to place it on a clean cloth to prevent it from sliding around and it will even out an imperfections in the cutting board surface or the surface that it is placed on.

Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately this particular cutting board needs feet because I messed up one side, so that side needs to be somewhat hidden.

For future boards I will likely not use them though.

What about using a threaded insert and the threaded
rubber tipped ends from those adjustable sta-lok? Clamps.you can thread them in.

We had a cutting board given to us that we liked. It had wood feet integrated into it. As those feet sat in water a lot, they slowly degraded. I cut them off flush, and put pre glued clear plastic feet that I found at Lowes, probably intended for door or furniture bumpers. These have held up well for many years. That may be one option to consider.
