Bamboo cutting boards

Are they "better" for your knives (re: maintaining the sharp edge longer) than the plastic cutting boards?

LOL Vicci, I think it is like many things, some think so and some don't.

I don't know much about them, Vicci - with my island I find I don't have a need for wood cutting boards anymore - except for presentation maybe.

But I need to know !!! My plastic boards are old and stain easily (requiring periodic bleaching with lemon juice) and I need an excuse to buy some of those pretty bamboo ones that I've been seeing...

Jean, do you cut meat on your island? And if so, how do you disinfect the area? I've wondered about that for years since I always use one board for meat only. When I'm done, I wash with hot water and dish detergent, then spray with bleach water and let it set for a while before rinsing. We've never gotten sick, but I still wonder if it's enough, especially since the old wooden cutting board has lots of scratches on it.

Maryann, my Mom does exactly what you do to clean her board after cutting meat. This woman is a fanatic about destroying bacteria (more so than I am) and if that's good enough for her then it's probably good enough for anyone!

I would probably save my bamboo boards for veggies and bread and keep using the plastic for meat since I can toss them in the dishwasher.

And I just noticed your location-- we were in your area last year buying a boat at Parma Marine. I found this wonderful place called World Market...

World Market is a lot of fun, haven't been there in a while, thanks for the reminder. Parma Marine is just a mile or so down the road from me. Enjoy your boat this summer!

Oh, we'll enjoy the boat, I'm sure... It has opened up a whole new type of cuisine for me "portable-room-temperature-foods-that-don't-crumb"

We also ate at a great restaurant called Fat Cats while we were waiting for the boat to be detailed (why they didn't do this before we arrived, I don't know). It wasn't in Parma, but near another place I stopped at, a huge Farmer's Market in an old brick building. It was my favorite type of day-- a foodie's day!

No, I don't - I use the hard plastic ones for that - but, I disinfect everyday - the boards and the island. Just a regular disinfectant from Smart & Final that I used to buy for the hotel kitchen.

Thanks Jean, I'm guessing that what I do must be okay then.

Vicci, that's the West Side Market you are talking about, and yes, it really is a fun place and I love to go there.
It's multi-cultural and you can get so many authentic food items there, and always the freshest produce.
