From the manufacturer
The Totally Bamboo Way. Do the world a favor & do bamboo.
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.
And then 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.
Our Totally Bamboo Legacy.
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.
Our Totally (Moso) 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 Big Easy bamboo Chopping Block from Totally Bamboo is a stunning and super functional piece made from flat grain bamboo. The beautiful inlay contrast bamboo details add sophistication, the non-skid feet provide a safe and slip-free work surface while raising the board off the counter or table top and due to the unique hollow construction this large bamboo board weighs less than half of a comparable sized chopping block so it is easy to use and move. The generous surface area provides ample space for food prep and the design details make it the perfect serving platter to feature at the center of every special meal or party. The bamboo cutting board measures 19" by 13.5" by 3.25" high (including feet). This bamboo cutlery is easy to care for, just hand wash with warm water and mild detergent. To extend the life and beauty of your bamboo board, occasionally treat with Totally Bamboo's Revitalizing Mineral Oil. Bamboo is the alternative for all things wood in the kitchen! Bamboo is stronger than most hard woods and it is the fastest growing plant on our planet. It does not require any special care to grow. In fact, it is a grass that produces more oxygen than a hard wood forest of comparable size, therefore reducing carbon dioxide gases associated with climate change. It also prevents soil erosion through its widespread root system and large canopy. At Totally Bamboo, we are proud to use "Moso" timber bamboo for its strength, density, versatility and high quality. It is harvested from our own bamboo forests which are not a habitat or food source for the great panda. Our factories adhere to very stringent protocol for curing and processing the bamboo, ensuring the highest quality product. And we take steps to ensure that our employees are well taken care of and work in a safe and hazard free environment.

I love red maple, don't get me wrong. Aside from the green advantages, bamboo is 16% stronger than Red Maple. Its not going to dull your knives significantly faster, at least nowhere near the extent of the fools who cut on glass or marble as a cutting board. I still can't believe some people preach using infinately harder surfaces like marble to cut on. Sure its a snap to clean up, but you're going to be cutting with a popsicle stick after all the sharpening sessions you're going to have to perform on your knives.
This block has a good feel when chopping on it. it doesn't move, it's not too high when set on a counter top, and its so darn beautiful I leave it out all the time.
To get the maximum life from your block, keep 3 things in mind.
1) don't intentially try to damage the board. with enough effort, sure you can impale your blade and make it stick. Why oh why would you want to do that? also I wouldn't put a hot pan on the board. unlike countertops, bamboo burns. :P
2) treat your board with mineral oil right after you buy it, and before you use it! Any food grade mineral oil will do, you don't have to stick with something that is "certified" for bamboo. Food Grade mineral oil is what you should use, and you can get it in the supermarket or drug store. I use the mineral oil designed as...don't laugh...a laxative. It's 100% food grade, and is safe to treat your bamboo or any wooden board. It's also a lot cheaper than wood treatment mineral oil. Simply apply some oil to a soft lint free cloth and rub it in, leaving a thin layer behind. go away for a half hour and come back. repeat. keep doing this until the board doesn't soak in anymore. Wipe the excess off with a dry cloth and you're ready to use it! Every few months apply the oil again to keep the wood from drying out.
3) Cleaning! some people use mild soapy water. I like to use distilled white vinegar applied with a soft sponge (not a scrubber) and then wiped dry with a towel. Vinegar kills bacteria and does a fantastic job cleaning, as long as you don't mind the smell. I water down my vinegar a little bit (a little stronger than 50/50) and keep it in a spray bottle. Clean your block using vinegar(or mild soapy water) after each use. Its easier to get the food off when its not dried on the surface (and in any cuts that may be on the surface).
If you follow those 3 steps I bet this block will last you a lifetime. I've had mine only a week and I love it! Yes, it is expensive compared to other alternative products. you can get a similar sized cutting board made from bamboo for $15 and be happy. I personally think the manufacture and quality of this product merits the price tag. This sucker is not going to be splitting or cracking anytime soon.
PROs: - Because of the end grain doesn't show scratches.
- No cracking after 5 years. I oiled it (top, edges, and bottom) with tons of mineral oil when new, and re-oil it about once a month. I do sometimes use lots of water and soap to clean it; but dry it promptly. Still looks almost new after 5 years.
- Does not dull knives as fast as side-grain wooden boards -- and certainly way better than plastic boards. (I bring my knives when I go to my friends' and I cook there, so my knives have experience with lots of cutting boards.)
- Chopping parsley, cilantro, etc., is much better with this board because (I gather) the knife edge sinks into the end-grain and makes a full cut of the thin leafs.
CONs: - It is heavy, so if you want to lift the whole board to transfer what you have chopped to, say, a pot on the range, you have to be reasonably strong.
- It is almost 3 inches high, so it makes the cutting surface higher. I'm 5'11" and I prefer the higher surface, but a shorter person might hate it.
The board is beautiful. The rich bamboo pattern takes on depth and character with the application of a few drops of mineral oil, and the butcher block is so charming that you don't want to hide it away in a cupboard. It's also so heavy that you really don't want to wrestle it off of a high shelf. All credit to the designers at Totally Bamboo who took the care to balance the board so well that you can prop it on its side when not in use, and it balances perfectly -- not a hint of wobble or wiggle. Tucked off to the side -- or up against the backsplash -- it takes up no counter space, and it brings color and beauty into my kitchen.
I added a couple of photos to the product page. You can see how the board dwarfs a chef's knife and stands on its own. I recommend this butcher block to anyone who appreciates a solid work surface and good craftsmanship. This is a hygienic instrument for food preparations, and it's gentle on your knives. It's everything that I wanted.
