I have all kinds, but the best one is plastic with gutters around the sides so that it doesn't get the counters all wet and slippery.

If your board is wobbling on the counter try getting a set of silicon pot holders, one at either end of the board and it will stick like glue

Never have a problem with it, just throw it into the dishwasher when I'm done.

Fotunately we have a Large butcher block. NO MEAT on this. I have a small one for meat. I use BLEACH on both.

You can purchase a shelf liner (grips) at the Dollar Tree store. Works great.
It has many other uses too.

That's funny to me. No meat on a butcher's block? Lovin' it. I know a coupla butchers, they use draw knives to clean their blocks. Viva le differance.

I use both sides of my plastic cutting boards, so silicone feet wouldn't work for me.

I use plastic colour coded boards. They can quite safely be put in the dishwasher. I have large ones and small ones for meat, vegs etc.

I also have a large, spiked wooden board for carving with a draining channel all round it and a little piece to cover the spikes when not in use.
