Chopping Blocks Cutting Board-Review and Giveaway!

Everyone needs a cutting board in their kitchen, right? And what better place to buy a cutting board than at Chopping Blocks! Of course, they sell more than just cutting boards...they also have kitchen islands (love to have one of these someday!), knives, countertops, assorted tools for chefs, and of course, chopping blocks. 

"ChoppingBlocks.com began deep in the heart of the Pacific Northwest by searching for the finest products for our custom kitchens. In this search we discovered the John Boos product line that offers the highly esteemed NSF seal and is used in commercial kitchens across America. The durability and high standard of construction was a must for our discerning clients. And now we bring the same high quality to all kitchens!"

And in case you're wondering what the difference is between a cutting board and a chopping block, check out this great article: Chopping Block vs. Cutting Board .


I was sent one of the Oahu Bamboo Cutting Boards for review.  I was very pleased with the quality of the cutting board. It is very sturdy (heavy, too!) and has come in very handy while preparing meals.  It's the perfect size, too (12"x12"x3/4").  Small enough that it's easy to store and pull out when needed, but not a mini cutting board, either!  We use green pepper and onion A LOT (seriously, at least 1-2 times a day most of the time!) in our cooking, so this cutting board has gotten a lot of use since I received it! It looks nice, too, with the dark center and lighter colored bamboo running down the sides.

Chopping Blocks.com is offering a Oahu Bamboo Cutting Board to one of my readers!
