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
