I use to do that too, but it's not allowed in restaurants bc it's unsanitary. We used something else that works well.. I can't think of the name, i wanna say it's like drawer liner... hmm, i'll have to think of it.

Just put a dish towel under it instead. A wet or dry one will work. Will save you from wasting paper towels and will be a lot easier to clean up than a wet paper towel that's been stuck to your counter.

hey partysugar- i just read that warped wooden cutting boards are really susceptible to major kitchen germs. it freaked me out so much that i actually got rid of my favorite old warped board and started using my huge chopping block instead. i miss it, but at least i don't worry about chicken juice getting sucked up into the wood.

I learned this trick in culinary school, except we used wet dish towels instead of paper towels. It works great!

I use cotton kitchen towels for this, they absorb a lot of the sound of chopping too! I also use my cotton towels under a dough rolling mat I have to prevent sliding and under the food processor for easy cleanup when making doughs and such when tiny amounts of flour escape the processor. Great tip!

Good idea! I just bought a new cutting board at BB&B, and it has rubber corners that keep it still.

I'm with Amanda-La, I use the little leftover strips from when I lined my drawers. It's a translucent nubbly plastic I got at Ikea and it works great. Washable too ... no waste! No slips.

Also you could use those drawer liners that are made with rubber grip and just use stick it to the bottom of it.
