  47. I definitely prefer wood. I know it's silly but I've never used glass as I just have a mental image of them shattering! Once the plastic ones have taken a few scores they are really hard to clean with the scourer catching in every mark. So wood, which I give an oil to from time to time and just a quick scrub with hot water, washing up liquid and a squirt of anti-bac.
