I would say yes to some degree. However, I do notice these bambo boards dry rather quickly. That means rinsing the boards quickly after use prevents the depth of absorbing. I do agree I wish these boards larger. I use the largest one for meat as I don't want meat juice spreading and contaminating my table and other stuff on the table.
The manufacturer, Totally Bamboo, claims their cutting boards are formaldehyde-free: "We had a chemist develop a high grade, non-toxic formaldehyde free food grade glue which we use exclusively on our cutting boards." See "Adhesives" near the bottom of this page on their website: http://www.totallybamboo.com/c54/.htm
I'm not sure if these are made here in the U.S. I would say probably not since they are made of bamboo and I'm not aware if there is enough bamboo material in one place in this country that would make it more economical than importing these from somewhere that does. I will say that they are of good quality and stand up to a lot of heavy cutting. They are a little on the thin side and the smallest of the three boards is almost too small to be of any use other than an individual cheese board.
I cannot answer that honestly. However, within a month or so of using it, the product started warping/bending, and the handle subsequently cracked. I have bought Bamboo boards at places like Bed Bath and Beyond, COSTCO, and they stills works about 1.5 years later. The quality of this product from Amazon is pathetic.
