Default Cutting board recommendations......

I really need to get a couple cutting boards and some decent knives for ribs, briskets and trimming work.

I need boards large enough to be useful, but small enough to fit easily in the dishwasher.

Knives....again, nothing too fancy, dishwasher safe, something I can easily sharpen as needed.

I didn't know if there was a good online source of products folks around here liked.

I use a custom maple board I had made to fit into my kitchen cabinets. It never sees the dishwasher. As for knives, buy good ones and never put them in the dishwasher. Get yourself a ceramic steel and you should be set.

It sounds like you're after plastic boards you can run through the dishwasher. There are places to custom order size / thickness / edging / etc. They can get pricey quick for small quantities especially if you get a lot of custom options, but still, it's out there if you really need a specific size. WebRestaurantStore, CustomCuttingBoards.com, probably others.

The best prices I've seen on plastic / nylon was at the local restaurant supply store, maybe there's one in your area?

Knives are tougher, I don't know of any decent quality steel knives you can dishwasher clean. I have the mid-range Wustofs and love them (Gourmet line). Had a Global in the past and wow, it was awesome, but a pain to get sharpened properly because of the way they're edged. Victorinox are often highly rated and very inexpensive if you go with the fibrox grips instead of the rosewood. Check Amazon. Knives are highly personal. Do you prefer a heavy, German knife or a lighter Japanese style?

Afterthought: if you look into Victorinox, know that their filet / trimming knives come in varying grades of blade flexibility, which is not listed clearly on Amazon. If you're after a certain stiffness or flexibility, you may want to go to the Victorinox website and get the model number you prefer and double check it's the same before you order.

We need to start with a budget. Most knives and dishwashers don't mix. I only dishwash my plastic cutting board and have a nice wood one I wipe down.

I wish I had the budget for some super nice knives, but my wife and son would have them messed up in short order. . Dishwasher & banging them in stainless sink, etc.

I'll check Walmart and Academy tomorrow.

I'd say victorinox would be a good fit for you. My family abuses the knives and they just end up in the dishwasher so high end knives would just get destroyed at my house. I have several victorinox knives that see the dishwasher regularly and I sharpen them often. I'd definitely get a thicker cutting board if you go plastic or nylon. We have a few that wifey throws in the dishwasher so over time they have warped a little, they were cheap though so it's not a big deal.

Put on your Big boy pants Tell the kid if he touches them it will be the last time he sees his fingers attached and the Wife it is grounds for the big "D"! After all You don't use her curling Iron ( well maybe you do) No reason a Hard working man can't have a Few Things of his own.

This is a really cool set with all the knives you really need and a nice carrying case to boot.

But for a home set I would use a knife block for safe storage.
