Our Belief in Design, Quality & Construction
Design and function are a top priority at Totally Bamboo; All of our designs are manufactured by highly skilled craftsmen who utilize traditional woodworking skills along with cutting edge engineering and machinery.
- Color of Bamboo: We do not use artificial dyes or stains. Our bamboo comes in two colors, light and dark.
(Note: Light is the natural color of the bamboo. *Dark is a richer, honey color, which is achieved by cooking or steaming the bamboo, and caramelizes the natural sugars in the fiber. This color is permanent and will not fade or wash out.)
- Grain of Bamboo: There are three types: Vertical grain, Flat grain and End grain.
(Note: Vertical grain is approximately 1/4" wide and is taken from the side of the split pole. *Flat grain is approximately 5/8" wide and is taken from the face of the pole. *End grain is the cross section of the pole.)
- Adhesives in our bamboo: We had a chemist develop a high grade, non-toxic, FDA approved, food safe glue which we use exclusively in the manufacturing of all our bamboo products.
In addition to the high standards for design and engineering, our factories adhere to stringent protocol, for curing and processing of the raw bamboo, resulting in the highest quality product attainable. We only use premium grade bamboo and then, only the lower portion of the pole due to its increased density. The forests from which we source our bamboo are designated for commercial harvesting and not a food source or habitat for the wild Great Panda. And because the welfare of our planet and the animals and people on it are our top priority, we partner with factories that are ISO 9001 compliant - a rating system which monitors non-polluting environmental issues and employee welfare, safety and minimum age.

About Our Bamboo
Bamboo is 16% harder than maple wood (commonly used for cutting boards), 33% lighter weight than oak and yet can be as strong as steel. It holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective, durable and ecologically responsible alternative to a material that is a bi-product of widespread clear cutting of old growth, hard wood forests.
Bamboo is a grass which grows to a harvestable height of 60 feet in three to five years; growing as much as two feet per day! The extensive root system stabilizes the ground in which it grows and continually sends up new shoots, naturally replenishing itself. Bamboo does not require replanting after harvest, making it one of the most renewable resources in the world. Moso, the bamboo species used at Totally Bamboo, can be re-harvested every 4 ½ years, compared to the 30-60 year growth cycle for most hard woods.
Totally Bamboo products are made from a bamboo commonly referred to as Moso, which is grown 500k west of Shanghai in China. This region has a temperate climate which is optimal for slower growing bamboo and therefor produces a much denser, harder and more durable stalk. This type of bamboo absorbs very little moisture and consequently reduces shrinkage or swelling in the finished product, making it a superior material for cutting boards and other kitchen and household items.
The Totally Bamboo Story
Many years ago, in a nook in the 'NoHo' Arts District of North Hollywood, California, Tom Sullivan & Joanne Chen owned and operated a small design and manufacturing studio. Their focus was on the design and manufacture of luxury customized director chairs for the movie industry. In their quest for a lighter weight, but sturdy and durable chair, they experimented with bamboo, long known for its strength to weight ratio. The resulting chair was not only lighter but substantially stronger than the oak originally used for their director’s chairs.
Intrigued with this renewable, ecologically friendly material, as well their desire to use every scrap from the manufacturing of the chairs, they set out to design various houseware products using their 'engineered bamboo'. In doing so, the world's first bamboo cutting board was developed! Bamboo, they discovered, is harder than maple, making it the perfect cutting board surface.
Shortly thereafter, Totally Bamboo was born. Launching as the premiere manufacturer for bamboo houseware products; offering everything from cutting & serving boards, salad bowls, salt boxes, cooking & serving utensils to the original Hollywood chairs.
Totally Bamboo has changed the way the world uses bamboo, as a viable alternative to our precious hardwood trees.
No old growth forests are touched.
No trees are cut.

Condition with food-safe mineral oil - the manufacturer recommends every other day for the first few weeks then less so there after
A barely damp towel underneath will prevent slipping on the counter though I don't often have that problem - probably depends on what I'm chopping/slicing. The more pressure I need to exert the more likely the board will slip. True of any board not just bamboo. For those really tough jobs I have a bamboo board with non-slip edges.
I do have to say they look nice and I like the handles, however the set I received were visibly warped on arrival. Judging by wear after a few light uses I expect the largest board to last no more than a couple months.
If you catch em at the 13 dollar price point and need a set of disposable cutting boards, go for it. If you are looking for a decent quality cutting board at a reasonable price, this is not for you.
Many recommended soaking the boards with mineral oil, but I don't have any and didn't want to purchase that, so tried using vegetable oil on one piece, olive oil on another piece, and PAM spray on the third one. Not sure if this helped, but none of them cracked after a few months of extensive use everyday, not even slightly unevened. I guess not leaving them wet after use has been helpful.
Happy with this purchase.
This is my first bamboo anything. I'll look into this further, and if I'm missing a step (perhaps I *have to* oil them to get a finish like the picture maybe?) then I'll update my review and adjust rating accordingly.
also: DO NOT LEAVE THEM IN WATER
if you leave them sit in water for too long they warp and get a weird bend to them. this happened with our big board. luckily it didnt warp too badly and we were able to straighten it back out by setting it on top of the toaster oven while it was running. Just be careful not to leave them in the sink.
The first set I bought for a friend had a nice finish. Smooth and almost shiny.
These guys feel like sandpaper in your hand. Touching them is like rubbing a chalkboard. The give me the willies just holding them and I do not like to use them!
