This Bamboo Cutting Board - Different Variety Than Panda Food is designed with the epicurean kitchen in mind. 16% harder than maple, Bamboo makes a superior material for cutting boards. The Congo cutting board is handcrafted using flattened strips of cured Bamboo bonded together with the highest rated, US laboratory tested and certified, formaldehyde-free adhesive specifically developed for food contact surfaces. Congo's size, 17.25 x 13.75, makes it perfect for all your larger cutting and serving needs. Congo's unique look is created using the end grain or cross-section of the bamboo pole. Small sections of the end grain are set in opposing directions creating the parquet design. No stains or paint are used to create the two-tones of Congo. The light tone is the Natural color of the Moso Bamboo and the scrumptious Honey shade is created in a very specialized heating process which caramelizes the natural sugar in the wood. These colors are permanent and will not fade or wash out. Care: wash with warm water and mild detergent and occasionally wipe with mineral oil (Do not clean in the dishwasher). An Ecological wonder, Bamboo is a grass that grows to a harvestable height of 60 feet in 3 to 5 years. It has an extensive root system that continually develops new shoots thus not requiring replanting making it an incredible self-renewing resource and a brilliant alternative to the wide spread clear cutting of our world's hard wood forests. Do the world a favor, Do Bamboo.
