Pratico bamboo cutting board

Get the bamboo cutting board from Amazon and Pratico's website as well

My wife loves this cutting board. Is there any better reference? For those of you who need more convincing I can expound a bit. You never really realize you need a large board until you've been using one the size of a sheet of paper your whole life and suddenly graduate to an 18x12 one.

Build- This really is a large cutting board; not "inconvenient" large but quite the opposite. I think it falls right into the size that is perfect without being too large or unwieldy. It is 3/4 of an inch thick so is plenty sturdy and able to take a beating without breaking. Where many other boards may have the main surface made out of multiple pieces, this one is a solid piece of bamboo in the working area. This gives the added benefit of not being able to break along the seam right when you need it as well as just being stronger overall.

Function- While size really helps, you probably really care about how it is to cut things on it. That size though allows a generous groove around the edge to catch both drips and stray pieces from a pile of food. When half the work of cooking is clean up it really does help. There's no reason you can't use the whole surface but if you want to be sure to catch all drips you will have a 9.25"x15.25" work area. Still plenty.

I can't think of any reason this wouldn't be a good addition to any kitchen. Check out my picture of the logo and you can see through the light marks that it's soft enough that it wont be wearing down your knives but still hard enough that you're not wearing out the board right away. I received this product free in exchange for nothing more than my honest opinion.
