Can you cut foodstuffs on the top of that little sink cover that comes with the casita?
I mean is that wood chemical bad or anything?

can you tell if it is real wood??? the old casita i had from the 90s had fake wood with a paper cover. yukkk!!!! tossed it immediately!!!

some folks like plastic but it gets cuts which fill with black dirt. i know i can bleach any real wood and it will get clean. when i had my casita i purchased a nice size cutting board that fit over the sink area. it was less than $20. look for one made of bamboo for lighter weight.

Ours was a laminate so I took the "sink insert" off the bottom and screwed it onto a real cutting board and use that as the sink cover. I made a fold down shelf, next to the stove, with the old cover.

I'm one of the folks that likes plastic... I run my through the dishwasher. Probably one of the best cutting boards I've ever purchased was actually a three-pack of these: Flexible Cutting Boards

Excellent suggestion, Pat. We just put ours on a shelf in the garage, so it can gather dust. (It's very good at it.)

I've posted this before, but couldn't find it just now. To cover our sink, we use a wire cake rack. (A small cutting board works nicely on top of it, and you can still run a little water for rinsing things while you're doing the food prep.)

Water dripped on mine and it swelled up on two sides so it would not lay flat. I purchased a square cutting/bread board at World Market for less than $15 and was the same size as the sink cover on one side. I cut about 2 - 3 inches off the other side and attached the original insert on the bottom resulting in a combo sink cover/cutting board that won't swell up.

Ok.. I just ordered a regular small cutting board from amazon. Maybe I'll get one of those Donna sheet thingies too.
