Stark Boards make clean up safer and easier
By NBN Cooking Crew
Most of us who love to cook barbecue really hate to clean up the messes that we make. Our crew's motto is to work smarter, not harder…especially when we're having fun on the barbecue pit. We also understand, and have seen first hand, the dangers of neglecting cleaning efforts. If you have ever been sick or seen someone sick from any type of food-born illness, then you understand our fears. Fun is what barbecue is all about, but safety is always first and a must.
A few weeks back we came across a different type of disposable cutting board made by Stark, LLC. Like always, we were very curious and gave their owner, Matthew Stark, a call. He gladly sent us some samples to do reviews on all of his products. We have seen and used several of the paper-based disposable cutting boards for years, and they really have cut our cleaning efforts in half. This simply gives us more time to relax and enjoy our time cooking.
The Stark boards are totally different from the paper type boards. These boards are clear, made from thick plastic, and come on a roll, which makes storage super easy. They are also FDA and USDA food grade quality. The 20" by 24" cut-resistant boards are already perforated on the roll and come in a 25, 50, 75, or 100 board roll for your convenience. We shopped around for other disposable boards and found these cost about the same as other plastic and paper boards.
When we compared these boards against the paper boards we have used in the past, we found a huge difference. These boards are tough! We did manage to poke a hole with the point of the knife but could not slice through them… even after sharpening up our best knife. We have had to double and triple up on some paper boards in the past…especially those that soaked up fluid. These 12 ml thick plastic boards will never get water logged or become soft due to moisture. We followed their directions to keep them from slipping on the counter by placing a few drops of water between counter and the board itself. Afterwards it stuck like glue as we trimmed up our salmon filets.
This product is 100% made in the USA and made with 100% materials that are all sourced here in the USA, and they are totally recyclable. These boards will also help you conserve water and even help you save on cleaning products. We consider this a very eco-friendly product, while being a must-have barbecue product at the same time.
If you do any type of catering or you are in the restaurant business, then Stark also offers several other products that will help you save even more time from cleaning. They have disposable liners for five gallon buckets, disposable steam pan and food storage/freezer bags, and disposable table covers. The combination of these products could really change the need for extra help in those environments. These products can also be used in a mass transit situation to help cut down on cooler or warmer cleaning, too.
We gave all of the Stark Board products we tested a perfect five rib bone rating. These products not only save you time from cleaning, but they can also save you a ton of money. We salute any type of product that can be used to help keep us safe, and these disposable boards really cut the risk of cross-contamination down.
