So I'm going to buy a couple of end grain boards from BoardSmith, Michigan Maple Block or both. The idea being to have one large one for most stuff and a smaller for quick stuff (and quick to clean). I'm looking at the big monster on the BoardSmith that is 18"x24" (I realize this is not really a "monster" for a lot of you chefs, but you know what I mean. It's as big as anything I will ever need in my home kitchen) and think, "Wow, that will not fit in my sink."
So I'm just looking for thoughts and suggestions on choosing the board size for your kitchen. I was even thinking of getting two 15"x15" from MMB. I would have lots of cutting room, be able to have one for chicken and one for veggies and still clean them in the sink. Then again, always stuck with a 15" board when there's a lot of veggies to cut might get old.
What say you? What is your vote for most practical sized board for a home kitchen where the sink allows no more than 15" width? How much does it matter if you can fit it in your sink or not?
Thanks for any help. I've been on a real spending spree lately and so far have not regretted any of it. Cry once. It's a saying I have come to appreciate.
