Smaller Than I Imagined,

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have to admit, I was a little surprised by the size of these cutting boards. I love bamboo cutting boards and have owned many since they became the rage about a decade ago. Usually, the boards I have are clunky and well over an inch thick. The Core Bamboo boards are much thinner than I'd imagined. In fact, they're really not much thicker than 1/2 an inch tops. Despite this, they seem to be incredibly durable.
The set comes with three sizes. One is perfect for herbs, garlic, ginger, and shallots. It's really too small to be useful for much else. The middle board is the one I've designated for vegetables and seafood, and then the larger board is my meat board. For food safety reasons, I always use a woodburning tool and mark the initial on the side of the board that's used for each food classification. So on the medium board, I have a "V" (vegetables) on one side and an "F" on the other for fish. On the meats board there is a "P" for poultry on one side and them "M" for beef and pork on the other. I can't remember where I learned that tip, but I've always used it.
With a price of just over $16, not only are these boards affordable, but getting three-in-one is even better. They take little space when it comes to storage, and are much nicer on knives than glass boards. I'm sold and hope these boards are still around when I need my next set years from now.
