I highly recommend this bamboo cutting board. Architec The Gripper 10-by-14-Inch Bamboo Cutting Board is the best bamboo cutting board I would buy again and again.
Best Feature – Gripper feet
Called The Gripper, this bamboo cutting board grips the counter top with its rubber feet, keeping it in place while you cut, dice and slice. These feet are not glued on, but built into the wood, so that they won’t come off.
The feet keeps the cutting board above the counter top too, so you can get hold of it and pick it up easily. This helps quicken the drying of the board after washing too.
Architec The Gripper 10-by-14-Inch Bamboo Cutting Board has all the advantages of a bamboo cutting board, and the disadvantages of one. Here are the main highlights:
It’s light enough to pick up and transfer the food into a bowl or plate.
2) Environment friendly
Bamboo is not only more hygiene, it is a very renewable resource. Bamboo grows a lot faster than wood and it is definitely much greener than plastic.
This doesn’t cost much at all. It’s good to buy an affordable cutting board because they will eventually need to be replaced.
4) Scratches, but is kind to knives
The surface does scratch a bit, but this only means that it is kind to your knives. The good thing with this bamboo cutting board is that it becomes seasoned after some use and washing, so even if you can still see the scratches, it is stronger and won’t develop deep cut grooves.
5) Hand wash only
Just like wood cutting boards, this is not dishwasher safe and you’ll have to hand wash it. Not a problem for me because I want to ensure my cutting boards are really thoroughly washed anyway.
6) Needs regular maintenance
This needs to be oiled regularly, more often when it is new, and less often after a month or so. Some reviewers suggest using mineral oil from the drugstore or coconut oil if you don’t want to get the more expensive bamboo oil.
Did I say I love the Architec The Gripper 10-by-14-Inch Bamboo Cutting Board for its safe grip? Get this bamboo cutting board, you won’t regret it.
