You don't have to compromise strength for a lighter cutting board. Our lightweight cutting boards have the same integrity as our classic line, but are lighter and easier to store and transport. Bamboo is the ultimate prep surface for chopping, mincing, slicing and dicing, while protecting your blade's integrity-especially important for your expensive knife investments. Our pin-striped look comes from the length of time bamboo is ''cooked'', the longer the sugars inside the bamboo ''cook'', the darker and richer the color. Exceptionally thin, you'll find more storage choices around your kitchen than with a traditional board. Core Bamboo is committed to creating superior products, while taking care of the people who create them, and the environment that provides the resources. Bamboo is one of the most remarkable resources available, regenerating itself every 4 years. This fact, along with understanding bamboo is stronger than maple and lighter than oak, and has naturally antiseptic properties, makes bamboo the perfect choice for wood products for the home. All bamboo used by Core Bamboo is 100-Percent organically grown, with vibrant colors achieved using food-safe, water-based adhesives and natural oils. Each product meets FDA and European Food Safety guidelines. Exceptional products and a belief in ethical and social responsibility; it is no wonder Core Home continues to win honors and awards by its peers, while customers order Core products again and again.
