I love the Crate & Barrel ones that come in a set of four for meat, poultry, seafood, and produce.

I have 3 cutting boards - and none of them are ever clean at the same time. Hence I usually only use one per dish I cook - and I wash it when I switch from, say, slicing raw chicken to chopping cilantro.

no i have one for everything - but it's plastic so it's pretty easy to clean/sterilize. my husband is a meat eater and i'm not - so he's always sure to wash it thoroughly if he cuts up ANY meat products

One for meat, one for everything else. They all go in the dishwasher, but I'm still convinced that the little grooves from my knives hold germs.

Only one and my grandpa used only one and he lived to be 107, so I think we'll all be okay!

I probably have 5 different sized cutting boards but I used them all innerchangably and haven't died from food poisoning yet. ;)

I've got two; one for my meats and one for everything else. Both of them are plastic and go in the dishwasher to sanitize them when I'm done.

Yes. We use wooden cutting boards, one for meats and one for fruits and vegetables. After each use, I always clean them using hot soapy water and a scrub brush, and then sanitize them using either diluted vinegar or diluted liquid bleach.

We're vegetarians, so the only cutting boards we have are for fruits/veggies, and a separate one for onions/garlic because the smell sticks around for so long. And a wood one for breads and such of course.

I have one (plastic) for raw chicken, three other plastic that are supposed to have specific uses but I use them interchangeably. I also have two wooden ones that I use mostly for veggies.

i only have one, which i scrub before chopping a different thing on it (ie meat, fruit, veggies etc). even if i had more, it would just mean id throw one in the wash and use it. i dont separate based on food groups
