Classy in the Kitchen: a Core Bamboo Review and Giveaway

We all have those days. You're tired, sick, or just not feeling like yourself. You've cleaned all day, and have finally decided to make yourself a quick lunch. So you grab that loaf of bread you baked this morning, and cut off a few slices for a sandwich. Only problem? Your only cutting board is now littered with what seems like a million tiny breadcrumbs, and has to be cleaned and wiped down before you can cut your tomatoes and other yummy sandwich goods. Does it ever end? Can't just one thing be made a bit easier today?

With Core Bamboo, it can!

I received this great Slotted Cuttingboard about a month ago, and have been using it nonstop! 

On their website, they have this to say as to why they decided on making bamboo products:

"Bamboo is one of the most remarkable resources on Earth. As a member of the grass family, not a tree, it grows at a much quicker rate than any other wood. From start to harvest (60-70 feet tall) it can take just four years. Bamboo is naturally anti-microbial, therefore stopping bacteria from growing. It is also one of the strongest yet lightest materials around. Bamboo is 16% stronger than Maple and is 33% lighter in weight than Oak. What is probably most remarkable is its unique extensive root system. When bamboo is harvested its natural root system spreads and automatically regenerates itself.
Virtually all of the bamboo we harvest is used in the process." 

I just love an eco-friendly company! This board has a removableslotted top, allowing all your breadcrumbs to fall through to the recess in the board. No more messy crumbs everywhere! Even better, I used the slots as guides, to make each slice of bread the perfect thickness. And it's not just bread you can cut on this board. I've cut up tomatoes, apples, melons, and other juice filled fruits. Then I let all the juice collect in the bottom, and drained it and washed it after I was finished. So much easier than cutting them on a normal cutting board!

But if you still love to have a normal flat topped cutting board on hand, no worries. Simply flip this board over, and you have a smooth side to cut on. That's right, two boards in one! This is a really easy to clean and use board, and would make a great gift for those who spend any amount of the time in the kitchen.
