Product Description

From the original bamboo cutting board company, Totally Bamboo, this cutting board is a beautiful, functional, ecologically sound addition to any kitchen. Bamboo is 16% harder than maple, making it an excellent cutting surface. Bamboo is actually a grass that grows to a harvestable height of 60 feet in about 3 to 5 years, growing as much as 2 feet per day. It has an extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots, naturally replenishing itself. It does not require replanting, making it one of the most renewable resources known. Totally Bamboo uses 'Moso' timber bamboo which is neither a food source nor a habitat for the Giant Panda. Totally Bamboo's cutting boards are assembled with approved food-grade glue -- none of their products are made with formaldehyde-based glue. No dyes or stains are used in the manufacturing process. The pleasing designs are created by combining originally-colored bamboo with steamed bamboo, which darkens due to caramellized sugars within the wood. Totally Bamboo prides itself on using only premium hand-selected bamboo, innovative design, exemplary craftmanship, and fair labor policies.

Overall, we're very happy with the smoothness and durability.

It won't dull knives - the board will get some cuts and scratches, for sure, but the good news is, the board is soft enough so it won't dull my knives.
Tylla Wolf
Yes, when you first get it, you have some "splinter" fuzz on it but with use it has completely gone away and hasn't come back.

Because I'd like to try using a bamboo cutting board, I am keeping this one...but I'd suggest to others to consider buying from a different manufacturer (not Totally Bamboo). When I got this cutting board, it had many tiny splinters, and I had to sand it with fine sandpaper. It still has a few splinters, though, and I am worried that new ones will surface each time I wash it. The cutting board is nice looking (as you can tell from the pictures), and I think it will be durable, but the splinter issue definitely concerns me, as I don't want the splinters to contaminate the food I cut on the board or get lodged in my skin (thus far this hasn't happened, but I have only had the board for a day).

The Totally Bamboo Kauai cutting board has been a staple in my home for 2 years. Yes, when you first get it, you have some "splinter" fuzz on it but with use it has completely gone away and hasn't come back. I haven't had any instances of actually giving myself a splinter because it is not sharp or rough but just a light fuzz that was easily brushed off. Also, bamboo is not going to harm you and the board was made with food-safe glue. I'd rather accidentally eat a little bamboo than plastic from a plastic cutting board. Also, by nature, the bamboo board became very smooth over time, especially when well-cared for. Wood boards need a little extra care. Occasionally I lightly wipe the board with a paper towel with mineral oil to help keep the wood from drying out. This is standard care for any wood board.

In terms of strength of the board when cutting, I have been very happy with it. The board is well-made, doesn't warp, bend, etc. You will have some slice marks as with any wood board, but some of that gets smoothed out if you take care of your board by oiling it as I mention above. If you find that you are gouging the board you should really look to your knife quality and cutting technique. If you don't have a very sharp knife and are chopping down really hard rather than slicing through the food, then you can damage the board more easily or worse yet, cut yourself! You really shouldn't require a lot of force to slice and chop things with a sharp knife. I've cut raw butternut squash on the board and while that definitely leaves a mark, it does not damage the board significantly.

The board is sturdy, beautiful, and environmentally friendly. I think it is worth the trouble of caring for it. After 2 years of heavy use, I feel the board will last another 10 years, which is a pretty good deal for under $30.

The very first cut I made on this cutting board left a huge gouge in the surface. Subsequent cuts also left deep marks. For something that's advertised as being harder than maple, I found this to be very surprising. Maybe it's the way it's put together? All I know is that this cutting board is on pace to be the shortest lived ever in my kitchen. Pretty much the only thing that I like about it is that bamboo is a renewable resource. Good thing because at the current rate, I anticipate needing a new one very soon.

i agree with JOC. this is a good cutting board. one would have to be doing something wrong... i got one for my mother who only has cheap serrated knives and the board still looks pretty good after a year and a half or so.
the thin profile makes it easy to stowe.

I have been using the "Totally Bamboo Kauai Cutting Board" for about a year new, and I love it. I have had no problems with splinters, gouging or dulling of my knives. It has been such a great product that I am surprised to see some of the review here. Possibly they had some problems with the first releases that have been fixed now.

Bamboo is a harder wood than most cutting boards are made from, 16% harder than maple with is the standard for cutting boards, and that takes a little bit of getting used too. The knife cut ends at the cutting board rather than cutting in like it would with a softer wood or plastic board.

A benefit of the added hardness is a less-porous surface, which means the cutting board doesn't absorb as much water and nasty little bacteria. There is some debate as too whether bamboo is too hard, and will blunt knives, but that has not been my experience.

The board is light, and a good size so that it can be moved around my kitchen pretty easily. I don't have a lot of space, so I appreciate the ease of storage. Because bamboo is made from pressed woods held together by glue, there has been some concerns over their safety but Totally Bamboo uses a proprietary food-approved glue.

Probably the main reason to use a bamboo cutting board over another hard wood is that it is ecologically sound. Bamboo, being a grass and not a true hard wood, is a quickly-replenishing resource that can grow up to two feet a day. On top of that, they look beautiful. The "Totally Bamboo Kauai Cutting Board" looks good enough to use as a serving board

Had the cutting board for a few months and it split down the middle after taking good care of it with the recommended oil.

The finish on this board is great; very smooth and no jagged edges or splinters. Also looks great and is great for blade edges.
