Product Description

Why choose Core Bamboo?

Core Bamboo is the proud manufacturer of the world's finest bamboo products. All of our products are made by our experienced team of hard working artisans in a safe and responsible environment. We take great pride not only in the outstanding quality of our products but also in the environment in which they are made. Every product that bears our name was made in an ethically and socially responsible way.

About our Bamboo

Bamboo is one of the most remarkable resources on Earth. As a member of the grass family, not a tree, it grows at a much quicker rate than any other wood. From start to harvest (60-70 feet tall) it can take just four years. Bamboo is also one of the lightest materials available. Bamboo is 16% stronger than Maple and is 33% lighter in weight than oak. What is probably most remarkable is its unique extensive root system. When bamboo is harvested its natural root system spreads and automatically regenerates itself.

Virtually all of the bamboo we harvest is used in the process. When we harvest the bamboo stalk at 70 feet it is cut up and divided into different production materials. The bottom section is primarily used for flooring and building materials. These are usually the toughest and hardest pieces to bend. The middle section is used by our factories to make lovely handcrafted products ranging from our assorted boards to versatile bowls and everything in between. The top section is used for smaller thinner items such as chop sticks, and accessory items. Even the sawdust created during the cutting is collected and mixed in with other materials to create a concrete like substance used for building and fixing a variety of items.

The quality and size of these cutting boards is very nice.

The large one split in half first (2.5 months in) and the middle one split in three sections within 3 months.

I have always preferred bamboo cutting boards to their plastic counterpart... they do not dull my knives, and are frankly nicer to look at than stained plastic cutting boards.

The only issue I have found when purchasing bamboo cutting boards is that they can be pricey to get a substantial thickness... if the price is inexpensive, the board is probably paper-thin.

I decided to take a gamble and try this three-pack of bamboo cutting boards. I have seen others available on the site at or near the same price-point, but I loved the rounded edges of these boards, and their story of ethical responsibility to the environment and the people who craft them. I was very skeptical about how quality they could actually be because the price was so cheap!

I must say, when these arrived in the mail I was taken-aback by how much heavier the package was compared to what I was expecting; each board was substantially thicker than I expected.

These boards are extremely handsome and worthy of counter-top display if you are tight on drawer space, the corner hole for holding the board doubles nicely as a hole to hang the board up and out of the way too.

I am very pleased with my purchase and will definitely purchase Core Bamboo products again. I have started looking into other products they make and this 'spun' and 'crushed' bamboo line of kitchen products look beautiful. Quite honestly, I also really like having something unique that all my friends do not have!

When I purchased this set of bamboo cutting boards, I was primarily motivated by the price. When they came 2 days later, I couldn't believe how happy I was. I have purchased Core Bamboo products in the past and love them all but this deal is simply the best yet. This set would easily be worth more than double the price Amazon is charging for it.

The quality of the boards is just as good as you would expect of Core Bamboo. They are thick enough to handle being used but thin enough to easily store them when not in use.

The 3 sizes in the set are perfect for just about anything you want to cut and prep. I use the 8 x 6 for cutting apples or prepping cocktails. I use the 11 x 8.5 for cutting veggies and preparing sandwiches and the 13 x 9.5 for carving meats and poultry. I wash them with warm water and soap and they are holding up beautifully! I have owned bamboo cutting boards in the past from other companies and this set is by far the most superior of them all.

Regarding portability, they are the perfect thickness, making them extremely easy to store, whether you live in a big house, small apartment or college dorm.

All in all, this set is a great buy and I highly recommend it to anyone!

I bought a set of these about a month and a half ago. They seemed pretty sturdy at first, and I didn't have any of the problems with then splintering that a few people had described. I noticed a couple weeks ago though that the largest one had warped a little bit, and it was starting to crack where the strips of bamboo were attached together. Today it broke in half while I was cutting some chicken up for dinner. The mid-sized one is starting to show the same cracks, so I'm guessing it's not going to last much longer either. So far the smallest one hasn't started cracking, but I'm sure it'll happen eventually. I definitely wouldn't waste my money on these. If you're going to get bamboo cutting boards, get something thicker and sturdier. Or buy a different material altogether.

These boards are useless. The large board broke in two after it was washed lightly after first use. Worthless . . . waste of money.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I don't have much to say about this product other than after washing them, the boards started to warp when they were drip-drying. That's generally not a good sign if you're looking for a cutting board with actual structural integrity. The large one is on the verge of splitting down the middle if any weight is put on it. I had to throw it out after one washing.

Save your money.

These were delivered to me on 2/25/13. I was very excited when I got them, I love that they were easy to store and the different sizes made it easy to work in small spaces. But today is 3/17/13, and I picked up the middle board to use it this morning and it has a crack right down the center about 2/3 of the way. Obviously it's going to split right in half. These have only been hand-washed, and not even used that many times. This is by far the most disappointing purchase I have ever made on Amazon, and I am a very frequent shopper here. I may return them, but I do not want them replaced as I have no confidence in this product. This is truly a case of 'You get what you pay for', don't let the cheap price fool you into buying these because you'll just be throwing your money away.

Update: I did return these. Amazon made it VERY easy, and I chose the Farberware 3-Piece Wood Cutting Board Set as a replacement. Since the difference in price was less than a dollar, they just did an even swap for me. Nearly a month later, I love my new boards! They are wood, and have a drip groove around the edge, and after multiple uses they are holding up perfectly. I'm very pleased with how Amazon made this right for me with no hassle and a very easy return and replace policy.
