My kitchen was in need of a new cutting board so we have been looking around and luckily I was given the chance to try out one of Alton Bay Bamboo's cutting boards.
The first time we used it we tried out Prickly Pears with our family on it. This has a nice surface, both sides can be used, and has a recessed edge so that juices go in the recess instead of all over your counter or table.
I love that this is a large cutting board having a big family a small cutting board just does not do the the job. We find ourselves having to clear the cutting board over and over again before everything is prepared. Not with this cutting board it held everything we needed it too. We use a glass cutting board for meat so this cutting board only sees fruits and vegetables.
The Alton Bay Bamboo cutting board would also be the right size for a fruit and cheese board for your next party. Simple but elegant at the same time.
You can find the Alton Bay Bamboo Cutting board on Amazon.
What Alton Bay Bamboo has to say about their product.
EXTRA LARGE BAMBOO CUTTING BOARD 18 X 12 X .8 Inches. Drip groove on the topside catches liquids to protect your countertop and table. The reverse side is smooth with no drip groove.
Quality crafted from Moso Bamboo; Moso bamboo naturally contains anti-microbial properties; Bamboo is excellent for use as a cutting board because it is harder than Maple wood. This results in a strong board.
Bamboo keeps kitchen knives and cutlery sharper longer than a wood cutting board.
Bamboo is eco-friendly because it is a renewable resource. The plant is not destroyed when the stalks are harvested. The plant regrows tall (up to 50 feet) and strong replacement stalks in 3 to 5 years.
This large cutting board is well suited for preparation of large vegetables and fruits such as Bok Choi, Romaine and Watermelon. Carve roasted meats and chicken with confidence that the juices will be in the drip groove not on your table or kitchen counter top. The reverse side can be used as a cheese board to cut and serve cheese, crackers and dips.
EASY TO CARE FOR, just clean after each use with soap in warm running water; rinse well; air dry or use a paper towel and please “do not put me in the dishwasher”.
