Cutting board for slicing meat and veggies?

I’d like to pick up some nice knives because my Faberwares are pretty shitty. The problem is that I use a glass cutting board. Should I switch over to that hard white plastic or wood? Is wood bad to use because of bacteria?
I don’t use wood for raw meat and especially not for chicken. Those plastic boards are not expensive so definately switch over to them instead of glass. They are worlds easier on knife blades over glass. In fact, don’t use those glass boards for any cutting.

If you have the money, then I’d also get a nice hardwood cutting board for veggies and cooked food. Some people also will do red meat on them, and to be honest, I end up doing it sometimes as well. But never with poultry.

Knife Set for Wedding Registry – Home Cooks

Getting married soon and still adding items to the registry.

The fiance and I are both amateur cooks, but really enjoy it. Up until now, we’ve used whatever hand-me-down knives parents have thrown our way (not literally, thatd be creepy..and were not in the circus).

Knives are the only item Im hung up on. We both really want a good set to fill out our kitchen. We’re registered at Bed Bath, and Beyond.
