Good price

[[/u]

Bamboo stuff is quite interesting subject. Because bamboo is basically kind of big grass, to make anything out of it, it has to be compressed and bonded with some adhesive. Now I was reading for bamboo floor it's ok, but I'd be curious to know how much, stuff that comes in direct contact with food, is safe for us.

good find op, heat added

I prefer the glass chopping boards. With the bamboo ones, you get knife cuts in the board, and then food bits start seeping into the cuts.

Hope it made sense! Early morning .. yawwwnnn

i was bought this set, the bamboo is layered and stuck together and after a while they do start to separate if used frequently, mine lasted about 8 month used daily before separation, just something to consider. heat for the price thought, my other half paid twice this price.

The down side to glass is it blunts your knives really quickly. I prefer wood/bamboo/plastic over glass, I wouldn't want my knives near it.

​​i agree, ours lasted about 6 months. DO NOT PUT IN DISHWASHER (my kid put one in because it was stained a bit, fell apart days later). but was good while it lasted.

at £2.50 each seems cheaper replacing or even than sharpening your knives each year

If you don't actually need all 3 you could use one as a laptop tray although maybe a little heavy for that?

I reserved a set of these earlier in the week. Picking them up tonight as it took a few days to arrive in store. Will let you know about the quality once obtained.

Cheers op... Reserved ta

You cannot chop anything on this board. You can cut, but you cannot chop. It will fall to pieces. This is because it is several pieces of wood glued together. Really you need a single block of wood to chop.

How can you chop on glass?!

I have a set and had no problems, don't have a dishwasher.I use a raw lemon to clean!!

The large bamboo boards from Lidls have lasted me more than 8 years, and can easily

Doesn't bamboo blunt knives too? I might be wrong, but I would expect it to have a high level of silica in it since it is a species of grass and therefore be quite abrasive.

​it is a good question. I don't think so as glass is much harder, but I'd need to look in to it properly.

Mine barely blunt the knife , but the surface of the bamboo does get very marked. My son thinks just washing the board is good enough, but I bleach regularly, especially after using highly coloured veg like carrots. I occasionally use a cleaver, with no problem, but the Lidls' board is much thicker.

Please at lease use google try to get some idea of you silly question. Bamboo is massively used as in Asian cuisine, directly contact with food ingredient. Also traditional chopsticks are made with bamboo.

I think the poster was more concerned about the adhesive, rather than the bamboo itself. Which seems a fair point. Often, it is additives in an item that cause harm rather than the item itself.

I don't use wood because you can't wash it properly as food soaks into it. Glass every time for me so I can bleach the boards.
