Of all the tools most essential in the kitchen, it's hard to rate a good cutting board as anything but #1. These are the ones for us - crafted with organic, sustainable bamboo, the perfect Goldilocks size, ringed with a smooth groove to avoid messes, and stamped with the Gustus Vitae seal. Candidly, we'd be embarrassed to say how many of these we give as Christmas gifts!
After years of using wooden cutting boards, a friend gave us a bamboo one, and we've never looked back. Just a few of the benefits of bamboo:
Harder than even the hardest Maple. Less deep cuts = less bacteria.
Sustainably sourced and grown organically.
It looks great. The fine grain wood is handsome, as it'll stay cut-free for longer.
It's naturally water repellant so isn't susceptible to cracks or warping.
Next time you're in the kitchen, have a look at your cutting board and ask yourself - do I deserve a better one?
