Product Description

Our premium select grade of bamboo is 18% harder than rock maple, making it a superior material for cutting boards and home products. And, it's a totally sustainable natural resource. After harvesting bamboo it grows back quickly since the root system is so dense. Our bamboo products are handcrafted using small flattened bamboo strips glued and pressed together with approved food grade glue, no paints or stains are used. Through a heating process, the natural sugar in the Bamboo caramelizes and turns brown to create these beautiful colors. These cutting boards can simply wash off with soap and water. Oiling it with mineral oil will keep it looking new. Bamboo cutting boards make an attractive chopping surface.

This particular board is made with the end-grain facing up - a must for those of you who have an investment in your cutting utensils. With the end grain up, your knives will not "cut" the board rather, they'll "slip between" the fibers thus protecting the ever important sharp edge of your knives.

I have three sizes of these bamboo boards and they are quite striking to look at with the two-tone colors. They are heavier than you'd think although slightly lighter than the same sized wood boards. I recommend you use food-grade mineral oil or bees wax on the board before you use it as the bamboo will absorb some coloring from items you cut. I also found that acidic foods will also stain the bamboo, even after treating the board first. That aside, these are very nice boards, thick and sturdy. Although I haven't had them long enough to say they won't crack, they seem very well constructed and don't have a grain pattern like wood so likely won't split like a wood board can do if you let it spend too much time soaking and/or let it dry out too much.

I like them and hope they give the years of service I expect from them.

I purchased this as a Christmas gift in early December. It didn't ship until February, which was okay. By then I liked the way it looked so much, I bought one for myself. They both arrived within a week of one another.

Both boards were treated with heated food grade oil and allowed to sit and soak it in. After wiping off the oil, my board had surface cracks, where the oil had pulled some of the glue out from between the bamboo pieces. Within the first month of use, both boards developed cracks all the way through them. Both boards were never soaked in water, but just wiped with a damp cloth.

This board may be beautiful, but it quickly became unusable and a waste of money. Now I'm looking for a good hardwood cutting board. (I've already replaced the gift board with another.)

All in all, this fiasco of a cutting board has cost me around $150...and I have yet to replace my board!

After owning this board for a few months my board also developed a huge spontaneous crack right down the middle. It was never soaked in water and was regularly treated with high quality oil. I also had problems removing the glue spot. This is a terrible product. Amazon should remove this item from its inventory and reimburse customers. I wish these reviews had been posted when I was considering buying my board. This product has obvious manufacturing defects.

I have had my MIU France Bamboo cutting board since July. It is now early January and my board has split in half. Too late to return for a refund, but a $50 board should last longer than 6 months. I did not ever wash it in hot water, just wiped with damp sponge. It sat on a flat surface (a marble top) and was never abused - actually hardly used. Quality is poor!

4 star no more! This product is terrible. I've had the board for sometime now and it cracked all the way through the middle. I had to throw it out. I've never let any liquids sit on the board, and cleaned the board according to the package. I've also used oil to condition the board. None of this seemed to prevent the board from cracking. I would not recommend this to anyone. Save your money. My mother has a John Boos board and it's still going strong. They're more expensive, but worth the money.

Original review:
I absolutely love this cutting board. It works well with most knives (don't use the serrated knives with tiny teeth). The board is very forgiving with repeated cutting. They are very heavy and very attractive. The only complaint I have is the paper packaging stuck to the board. I've bought 3 of these and I couldn't get all of the "glue" off any of the boards. I eventually just put the oil on the boards to protect them and that somehow helped get most of the sticky residue off. MIU France really needs to use something that will not permanently stick to the boards. I'd give it a 5 star if the sticky residue and paper came off easily.

Bamboo cutting boards are pretty cool, and they do kind of heal with regular use, but this specific model is junk, I am now on my second one and it's cracked just like the first one was when i recieved it (return to amazon was great, got a new, uncracked, one in 2 weeks. but now with 4- months of use, this one has two large cracks, i can actually see the light thru them... don't spend the money on this one, please look elsewhere... even if it;s good when you get it, it won't stay that way for long, I paid 50.00 thinking i was getting a high quality product, i thought wrong..

I'm big on reading reviews and making a decision based off of what i read. But for some reason I chose to go in a different direction with this product. And I'm glad I did. My husband is a chef and I wanted a nice surprise for our new home in December. It's beautiful and more elevated than regular cutting boards. He loves using it and to keep it looking like new we try to only cut drier ingredients and use a damp rag with soap to clean off, rinse and pat dry. We have had it over 6 months and not a crack in sight! Based on my husbands experience over treating and too much exposure to moisture weakens the glue holding everything together.
