I don’t know about you, but I’m in the market for a new cutting board.
It wasn’t always this way. My mom bought me a beautiful, sturdy bamboo cutting board a couple of years ago and it served me well. It was solid and pretty and good to my knives.
But then along came my cat, swaggering along the counter where he’s not supposed to be. The cat decided the counter wasn’t big enough for both him and the cutting board, and I found the board in two pieces on the floor shortly afterward.
With the two resulting “mini” cutting boards tiding me over until I get a new one, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at our best bamboo cutting boards for every recipient or occasion.
Best Cutting Board for Football Season
Did you know there was such a thing? Well, there is! You can make game day so much more festive by prepping your veggie tray with a Football Cutting Board.
It looks so impressive, you can even use it as a serving tray and impress all your fellow football fans.
Not only does the football cutting board bring the game into the kitchen, but the bamboo is easy to maintain and naturally anti-microbial.
Just be sure to personalize your board with your name or your team’s name so everyone knows whose ball it is and there are no interceptions.
Best Cutting Board for the Master Chef
The Totally Bamboo Kona Cutting Board gives you plenty of space to work with at 18”x12” and has a groove running all the way around the board on one side to keep your counters nice and clean.
Laser engraved with text or artwork, it makes a great gift for yourself (if your cat destroyed your last board), or for friends and family who enjoy cooking.
Best Cutting Board for Space Savers
If you have a small apartment or a hefty cat (or both), the best bamboo cutting board won’t take up too much counter or cabinet space.
The Molokini Cutting Board is nice and compact at 7.5” x 7.5”, and looks smart and sophisticated underneath all those veggies. Add your artwork, text, or logo to the corner, and this could be the best little cutting board that ever graced your counter.
Best Cutting Board for Large Spaces
Maybe you have the opposite problem and need to fill up as much space as you can! And don’t forget: the bigger the board, the more food you can put on it.
There are some pretty big cutting boards out there to meet your needs. The Dominica Cutting Board measures in at 12.5″ x 20″. That’s 250 square inches of space for all your slicing and dicing needs!
Plus, this board’s got a beautiful grain inlay and is customizable, making sure you never want to take it off your counter again.
Best Cutting Board for Wedding Gifts
No offense to dish towels, but they’ve got nothing on bamboo cutting boards. They’re so useful and they can be so beautiful, especially after you add personalization.
The best cutting board for wedding gifts is something that is high quality and is going to last for decades.
The Aruba Cutting Board will surely impress the happy couple with its pretty end grain inlay, and years later, they will still be impressed because that board will look the same as it did when they first got it.
You know that item your mom always showed you and said, “I got that as a wedding present 30 years ago”? This is going to be that present.
There are so many boards to choose from! But hopefully, this will help you narrow it down to the best in each category and make your choice a little easier. I know for me, at least, it’s time to go cutting board shopping.
