Bamboo Cutting Boards Preparing Your Meals

Man cutting food; bamboo cutting boards

How you prepare your food can make all the difference. I know it has for me personally.

Since my purchase of a bamboo cutting board during the summer of 2020, I’ve been cooking a whole lot more healthy foods. Vegetables galore. #teamsweetpotato

All kidding aside, I’m truly appreciative of my cutting board. And I know you’ll just love yours too.

As a preface, I want to stress the importance of bamboo cutting board care. Totally Bamboo provides a helpful resource for caring for bamboo products. Who doesn't love a long product lifespan?

Here are a quick handful of general best practices to get you started:

  • Hand-wash only. Dishwashers cause splintering.
  • Treat with oil from time to time. Mainly whenever the board appears dry. Royal Craft Wood food grade mineral oil is a great option.
  • Do not soak your cutting board for prolonged periods of time.

Ready? Great! Let’s jump right into my top picks.

    I personally have owned their Large Cutting Board style since the summer of 2020. And I haven’t looked back. As a nice touch, I appreciated that the Royal Craft Wood company owner sent me a thank-you note months after I received the product.
