Well, I’m at it again: Reviewing another bamboo product from Royal Craft Wood. This time, it is a 3-piece cutting board set, which I received yesterday — just as I was moving out to a new home. What timing! This empowers me to start my new kitchen with brand new cutting boards that turn out to be superior to what I had before.
Product Description: Bamboo Cutting Board Set
My previous cutting boards were made of the traditional wood and had numerous cut marks in them. From what I’ve learned through research, I won’t have to worry about that so much with these bamboo cutting boards. Bamboo resists absorbing the odors of various foods and is because of its hardness, bamboo resists knife scaring. Because of this, bamboo cutting boards are less likely to have pockets where moisture, food particles, and bacteria can accumulate. This makes bamboo boards much more sanitary than boards made of other materials.
Bamboo has a hard density, making cutting boards made from this material nearly maintenance-free. Bamboo resists absorbing water and therefore will not warp or crack as easily as other woods.
How to Care for Bamboo Products
I mentioned this in my previous review of a Royal Craft Wood product, but it bears repeating. To help your bamboo cutting boards last, simply follow these care recommendations:
- Wash by hand — NOT in a dishwasher. The extreme heat can damage it.
- Don’t let the board soak in water.
- Wipe the board dry after washing by hand.
What I Liked About Royal Craft Wood’s Bamboo Cheese Board
This may sound odd, but when I first opened the package, removing the plastic, the aroma of wood wafted up and smelled so good!
Then, the look and feel of these bamboo cutting boards: They are beautifully crafted and have nice indentations on the bottom that will make them easy to pick up.
As with the cheese board I reviewed a few weeks ago, the quality is readily apparent. They feel durable and sturdy.
And addition to all the other benefits of bamboo, I like that they are made from a sustainable and renewable resource. Bamboo grows readily, making products made from bamboo more environmentally friendly.
What I didn’t like about Royal Craft Wood’s Bamboo Cheese Board
Frankly, I can’t think of anything other than Walmart’s poor shipping. The package was supposed to arrive earlier and thus the late arrival greatly inconvenienced me. That said, it may not be Walmart’s fault. Shipping has been wonky since the COVID-19 lockdown hit.
If you would like a long-lasting, durable, and versatile cutting board set, complete with small, medium, and large boards, this bamboo set fits the bill. It has a lovely design, is well designed, and includes pretty much all the sizes you’ll need for a typical kitchen.
Rating for the Bamboo Cutting Board Set by Royal Craft Wood
NOTE: I was reimbursed the cost of this cheese board in exchange for an honest review. If you’ve read past product reviews, you’ll know that I don’t pull my punches when I believe they are warranted. I also try to provide balanced information so you can make your own decision to read or not read the book, even if you disagree with my opinion.
