What are the pros and cons of having a cutting board countertop? When kitchen counters need to be replaced, the place is held together with Scotch Tape. Slab butcher block is absolute favorite thing, period. When we are dead broke poor and lived in two rooms, bought the largest Boos board that we can find, like wider than the stove. Covered the sinks with it and put them directly next to the stove. So never buy anything but butcher block for a counter. Now I had made a valley in my butcher block top. I cook so much that it had literally just worn way down so I replaced it. It is the best material for a countertop because people can work at stations all around. It’s very good for making fresh pasta. Marble top for the odd occasions that actually make pastry or pastry dough.
