new bamboo cutting board (shopping)

March 22, 2009 ask permission to use image

since i’ve been cooking home more often this past year, i’ve always wanted to get a new cutting board. i finally found something i like from t.j. maxx (the two combined cost me less than $20 including tax…what a bargain!) in the sizes i want… the bottom one in the photo is a good size of 15″ x 12″ by simply bamboo, and the other a smaller square size by island bamboo, but looking at the craftmanship, style and colors, they really do look like they were made by the same manufacturer in china. anyway, aren’t the vertical grains simply beautiful? i’ve always loved wooden stuff, but to be more environmentally conscious, i try to substitute wooden items with bamboo products whenever possible. :)

here’s sharing a list found in the simply bamboo tag…
“bamboo is a newable and sustainable natural resource. bamboo is harder, denser, and lighter than most types of wood. bamboo resists deep cuts but goes easy on your knives. bamboo blocks odor and bacteria because it absorbs less moisture than wood.”

(sorry for not updating new posts in awhile… no, i haven’t stopped eating out nor taking food pics, but just didn’t have the time to sort out all the pics yet… i promise i’ll start blogging new entries soon!)
