Does the dishwasher decontaminate chopping boards? I put my chopping boards in the dishwasher every day.  Does this mean they are getting the best clean and are decontaminated?

  • I would not put them in the dishwasher but wash by hand!

  • I would scrub them by hand first.

  • I think so but if in doubt douse it in bleach!

  • Really interesting comments read on this!

  • not sure

  • A hot dishwasher cycle will kill the bacteria on your chopping board.

  • the heat should kill any germs

  • Yes because the dishwasher usually uses hotter water than when hand washing.

  • I think they get a reasonable clean but not as great as scrubbbing. If you have any scratches on the board the dishwasher powder may get stuck in them.

  • I always put my plastic boards in the dishwasher. They always come out really clean.

  • yes they will ! !

  • there are some good comments here

  • As far as I know it does

  • It does :) just as well as hand washing.

  • I hope so because I put all of my plastic ones in there
