Bamboo Cutting Boards
Recently I mentioned that I had ordered some new cutting boards. Well, I've had them for a while and given them both a good test run.
Both boards are Faberware Bamboo Cutting Boards, made from 100% bamboo. Bamboo naturally replenishes itself so there's no need to worry about a forest being cut down to aid in your kitchen needs.
I was surprised at the weight. For some reason I thought they would be lighter than wood. They're very solid and the grain is attractive also. Bamboo boards are harder than maple, which is the type of wood most often used for cutting boards.
The bamboo boards are moisture resistant. They are said to be scratch resistant, but that does not mean they will not scratch. The knife does make some slight mars but it doesn't dig in and leave a groove.
Care is easy also, just hand wash with warm water. I like the way they smell grassy and earthy when wet. I makes me feel like I am doing a good thing by using a bamboo product. Even the care instructions came on recyclable paper.
These particular boards from Farberware come with a limited lifetime warranty. I can live with that.
I ordered my boards from CSN.com but I think you can find these anywhere Farberware is sold.
