Bamboo is taking the culinary by storm. Have you made the switch yet? Not only is this wood sustainable and renewable, it's anti-microbial, and, most importantly, it's great quality! This is a set of lightweight, hardy bamboo cutting boards in three convenient sizes: 13" x 9.5", 11" x 8.5", and 8" x 6". The handles measure about 4" long and .75" wide, and the boards are 3/8" thick.
Unlike nearly every other cutting board surface used today, bamboo is a wood that is both hard and dense. The outstanding hardness resists knife scars and tough food stains, and the high density resists water absorption. This pristine, dry wood surface that bamboo provides cuts down on bacteria's ability to grow and on warping and cracking. It's nearly maintenance free, and will maintain for years with just a simple wash and wipe dry.
Did you know? Bamboo is a grass! Hardy in a wide variety of environments and growing conditions, the wood is fully mature and ready to harvest within 3-6 years. Compare this with maple wood, which can take over 30 years to mature, and it's plain to see how this quick growth cycle makes bamboo one of the most sustainable and Earth-friendly wood choices out there.
Care Hand wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Wipe dry. Do not clean in the dishwasher.
