Although the Gripper bamboo cutting board has the superior characteristics of hardwood products, bamboo is classified within the grass family. This makes it a fast growing, naturally renewable material with the same level of durability as the hard woods. Environmentally sound, food-grade laminates ensure food safety.
Architec is hopping on the green bandwagon by implementing elements in both its manufacturing process and end products. One of their new lines consists of products made from bamboo. A quick-growing grass, bamboo is renewable and tree-saving, with many of the same attributes as wood. The Gripper cutting board, for example, made of laminated strips of bamboo, is strong and durable, won't absorb moisture, and won't harm knives. The glue used in the lamination process is food-safe. Soft rubber pads, securely anchored beneath each corner without glue, grip the 11-by-14-inch board to the counter to prevent slipping during use. After use, simply wash The Gripper by hand.
Look for other sizes of Architec bamboo cutting boards, as well as innovative cork cutting boards. Removal of cork bark doesn't hurt the tree, which keeps growing and producing more bark. All good news for the planet. --Ann Bieri

The size is as advertised. They are an inch thick with the grippers, and the grippers are quite wide and large without adding much to the thickness dimension.
This cutting board is lighter in color than my other bamboo cutting boards. I prefer the looks of the darker ones. The grain is very nice and even, the same on both sides.
This one has a fairly large surface area, thickness and bottom grippers. The grippers are superior - by a lot, not just something pasted on.
Mineral oil is supposed to be the best sealant to treat this board - I used it on mine. You can get mineral oil in lots of stores such as pharmacies. I found mineral oil at my local pharmacy for seven dollars a quart.
The boards do come a little fuzzy at first, but after a bit of use and washing, they become very strong. As is with most lower end boards, cut marks do become visible, but those will eventually wear away as the outer finish of the board grows more weathered. This is nothing bad.
The best selling point about these boards are the rubber feet. While they do take away an entire side of a board to use for cooking, they provide a vital role in keeping the board still while you're dicing (these boards are light and would probably slide around otherwise without the feet; I've had bad experience with other boards sliding around) and also helps air the board while it dries, keeping the bamboo off the ground and letting the water soak in and promote bacterial growth.
My only qualms about this board are the lightness of the bamboo. My own boards are very dark in color, giving them a very rich quality. These boards are VERY light in color, so if you really like matching your cookware, make sure that you have a brighter kitchen, or you may begin thinking these are a bit of an eye-sore.
i have used the cutting board now for about a month and am impressed with how nice it is to have 'grippers' on the bottom. the board does not wander on the counter and both the board and counter are easier to keep clean. at first i used it only for buttering toast and as a hot board as it is very attractive but i have now diced and sliced on it so it will [hopefully] have a long and useful life. very nice product. **** 4 stars
