Q: I was shopping for cutting boards recently and saw a wood board that was heat safe to 350°F. Could such boards be used as trivets? Thank you!

Editor: Yes, it sounds like heat-safe cutting boards would be fine to use as a trivet. Let dishes cooked higher than 350°F cool a little first, but everything else should be fine to place on the cutting board without fear of leaving charred marks.

Readers, do any of you have experience with cutting boards like this?
