Glass cutting boards will often dull or damage quality kitchen knives, and standard maple or oak cutting boards are prone to nicking and scratching. This can be unsanitary because these small holes can be a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. Since traditional hardwoods don't dry quickly, it encourages further growth after washing. Bamboo Cutting Boards are naturally antibacterial, as the bamboo is harder than standard wood, and dries quickly to resist mold or food borne bacteria from being trapped within its surface. The result is a healthier kitchen cutting surface.
Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world, but it is classified as a grass and not a tree. For this reason it is able to grow incredibly fast. In fact, when placed in the proper climate certain types of bamboo can grow up to 6ft a day. Unlike most grasses though, bamboo is quite strong and rigid, and when manufactured the right way, can rival the hardest woods for durability. When harvested, 1/3 of the bamboo taken will completely grow back within one year. This makes it incredibly easy on the environment, and a great alternative to traditional hardwoods. Ecologically conscious consumers have consistently ranked bamboo units among the top of their class in the cutting board market. These beautiful cutting boards are handcrafted using flattened strips of bamboo laminated together. A special heating process gives the board it's rich coloring. The natural wood sugars are caramelized under high heat to bring out the deep honey color. Thanks to Swiss design and superior construction, this bamboo cutting board will outlast and outperform similar products. Hand wash. 11" x 17.75" x 1" Order Yours Today!
