Review of Bright Star Bamboo Cutting and Chopping Board













brightbamboo12
Up for review today I’ve got another bamboo cutting board from a company called Bright Star which is nice and large and one that’s fairly attractive too so it could even be used as a serving board if you wanted to. The board is bamboo obviously which is naturally antimicrobial making it a healthier choice than other cutting board on the market today. I’ve been using the board for a few weeks now and I like it very much, so I’ve got a quick review for you of it. Read on to learn more..

The Review

 

The cutting board comes wrapped in plastic for protection and there’s just a label on it.

The top and bottom of the board look virtually identical except the top has a deep groove all the way around the outside edge to collect juices. The board is made of bamboo of course and this makes it look very different from other wooden cutting boards, it actually looks very nice, you could use it as a serving tray. The board is very thick at about .75” inches and it’s 15” x10” in dimensions so it’s fairly large as well. It weighs in at almost 2 1/2 pounds so it’s hefty for sure, but it feels well made.

The board is a single piece in the center and then on the sides have pieces that go the opposite way of the grain in the main board kind of giving it a border look.

Bamboo is naturally antimicrobial and water or liquid resistant so things like bacteria will find it harder to live in the grain. Bamboo is harder than regular wood but the natural properties of it won’t dull your knives.

I got a set of knives for review right as this board arrived, the knives are ceramic and they recommend using bamboo or silicone cutting board with them so it worked out very well as I was testing the knives I used this cutting board with them.

Conclusion

So it’s a bamboo cutting board, but it’s one that looks very nice and is well made.

The board can easily be used as a serving tray if you want.

The board is more than large enough for most applications, I used it for everything really, meats, vegetates and fruits. Bamboo is great in that it’s naturally antimicrobial so you can safely use it for multiple things.

I like bamboo boards a lot, I have both bamboo and silicone and they both have there place in my kitchen.

This board from Bright Star is very nice and I can easily recommend it.

Pros:
+Looks very nice
+Well made
+Naturally antimicrobial

Cons:
-None really
