Every cutting board has a small hole, but it took me 30 years to discover its true purpose.

Everyone is sure to be surprised by the real use of this small hole!


A chopping board is an indispensable tool in every kitchen and its sole purpose is to serve as a cutting surface for slicing and dicing food.

Chopping boards are so common that many people would be surprised to learn that they have not been using them correctly all this time.

Seriously, have you ever looked at your chopping board and wondered if the hole that 100 people, or 101 people, use to hang it up has any other purpose?

In fact, this special construction was created to serve a completely different purpose.

Normally, when slicing food, especially when slicing it into small pieces, you will encounter some difficulties in transferring the final product into a bowl or plate.

Food easily falls out and you will have to clean up and pick up again, which is very time-consuming. If you use your hands, especially with cooked food, the risk of bacterial contamination is very high, not to mention the lack of hygiene.

Therefore, the correct way to do it is to use a knife to slice and then push the food through the hole so that it falls onto the tray or dish below easily.

This method is perfect for cutting foods such as pomegranate seeds or minced meat.

In addition, you can also use this small hole to push away small scraps, peels, and leftovers when preparing vegetables into the garbage bin below.

Furthermore, when using a chopping board, you should also take note of the following:

– Use separate chopping boards for raw and cooked food, do not mix the two types as bacteria from the raw food can contaminate the cooked food and cause diarrhea.

– Always keep the chopping board dry to prevent mold, especially with wooden chopping boards.

– If the chopping board is too old or has many dents, it is best to replace it to ensure hygiene.
