Default HELP: Bread/pasta/pastry board?

I need to buy one of these countertop boards. Some choices are marble, wood
and silicone.

How do you clean one that won't fit in the sink or dishwasher.

The board doesn't have to permanently reside on the countertop.

My formica countertop is 8' length x 24" deep.

Please advise.

Thanks,

Andy

P.S. I have Mom's old marble rolling pin, if that matters. --A

Search pastry board.

I much prefer wood. Some claim to clean with water but I'd suggest never using
water on a pastry board, clean with a baker's bench knife only. Reserve ONLY
for baking, no general kithen work.

Here's one: http://www.cooking.com/products/shprodde.asp?SKU=171870

Believe it or not, I use a cabinet door. It became available when we moved
into our last house because it had a (natural) dark area which clashed with
the other doors.
I've used it for years, for kneading bread, rolling pastry, etc. That's
been enough to keep the surface very slightly oiled. It's quite big - but
I never wash it - just scrape it with a bench knife.

(laughing) - well, the door lies flat on the counter only when I need it,
not vertical and fixed. 8~)). Works great - it's a perfectly plain flush
door, 18 x 30, solid birch.

For a cheap solution, you can take a piece of plywood cut to the
desired size and cover it with brown craft paper held in place with
masking tape. It works almost as well as marble. I use this solution
to make ravioli.
