I have had thin plastic ones melt, but that was only when my wife accidentally left it on a burned and turned it on.

Yes we were very lucky. It was just the edge and we were right there and noticed it right away so we averted a disaster.

I like having a bunch of plastic ones. We have one wooden one that we use for bread. We also use it to bring a roast to the table that needs to be sliced, or is only partially sliced and we might want more than is already sliced. On one side it has those nice grooves that let the meat juices run into a little "well".

I sounds like she wants a basic, plastic one. I have had a couple that get worn, and absorb some food bits after a while. They actually recommend having two separate ones if you are going to be using one for raw meat. If I were you I would convince her to get a hard wood one. They can be sanded down and coated in mineral oil to create a fresh board. They also wash easily, by hand.

I have two glass boards, one for meat while the other for fruits, vegetables and bread. The boards made of glass do not absorb any food and they can be cleaned easily. They could be slightly heavy but I think they are more hygenic.

Almost every kitchen has a pull out cutting board in the cabinet that is icky.
It's the perfect place to slide in my multi colored plastic cutting board sheets.
I cut one in half for cutting smaller quantities.

Epicurean boards are great, although a bit dear. Have you heard of Joseph Joseph products? they do a really good range of non wood boards.
