Getting my own kitchen ship-shape has been an ongoing and lengthy process. Rather than wait until — someday — when we put the house up for sale to tackle renovations, we’ve been creating a pleasing space now using high-end appliances and attractive accessories. So, we get to enjoy the kitchen while we are still living here, not simply renovating it for the new buyers!
Of course, “accessories” can’t simply include vases of fresh flowers, footed cake stands filled with cupcakes and decorative canisters — like some of the beautifully styled (but ultimately impractical) kitchens on Pinterest. We need items that we can actually use on a daily basis!
And, the Eco Bamboo Cutting Board with Stainless Steel Handle from Casa Qoqo marries form and function perfectly. This cutting board has such a beautiful, warm color and interesting grain, I actually leave it propped against the backsplash rather than hide it away!
The finish is silky smooth and over the last few weeks I have noticed that it does not tend to show as many cut marks as plastic does or stain as much as hardwood will.
It’s even nice enough to serve on – cheese, veggies, snacks – but, this cutting board is more than just decorative. Made from 100% premium organic bamboo, it is also strong, durable and harder than maple wood.
Plus, bamboo prevents the accumulation of bacteria and food particles. So, it’s easier to wash and keep clean than a traditional wooden cutting board and safer than plastic.
Caring for it is simple. Just use hot water and dish soap to wash, then let it air dry. Never put bamboo in the dishwasher. And, do not let the cutting board sit in water. Periodic treatment with mineral oil will also help maintain the bamboo.
The Casa Qoqo cutting board would make an excellent housewarming gift, bridal shower gift or holiday gift for the cooking enthusiast. It retails for $19.79 but is only $12.99 with Free Shipping for Amazon Prime Members.
And at this price, you’ll want one for yourself, as well!
