From Amazon.ca

Ultra-light and super strong this dishwasher-safe GreenLite utility board from Totally Bamboo is designed by adding stylish functionality to your kitchen. It's crafted from mountain grown, naturally occurring bamboo and is free from formaldehyde based adhesives, dyes, or stains.

Totally Bamboo, totally thin

Harder than maple, this bamboo board is easy on your knives, and it has gently curved corners and sides for a distinctive look. It measures just 3/8 of an inch thin, making it easy to maneuver from one countertop to the next and easily storable. This extra-large board measures 20-1/2 by 14-1/2 inches and the cutting area is framed by a shallow reservoir to collect excess liquids to control mess. It also includes a hole in one corner for hanging and handling (see more about GreenLite cutting board features in this larger image).

Best of all, this GreenLite bamboo board can be cleaned and sanitized in your dishwasher. Featuring Totally Bamboo's innovative TriPly construction, this board uses a proprietary food-grade adhesive that withstands high temperature washings without compromising its durability or quality. Alternatively, you can also hand wash this board in warm water with a mild detergent.

Totally Bamboo's GreenLite boards need to be oiled regularly to maintain their rich bamboo hue. For optimal appearance, you can use the specially formulated Totally Bamboo Revitalizing Oil (available separately) after each wash to extend the life of the board and keep it looking beautiful. Just apply a generous amount of the mineral oil to your board and spread it with a soft cloth (leaving it overnight if possible). Then, simply rinse before using.

The Totally Bamboo Difference

Totally Bamboo
Bamboo strips are bonded together with a safe, highly durable non-toxic food grade glue.

Bamboo is actually a grass that grows to a harvestable height of 60 feet in about three to five years, growing as much as two feet per day. It has an extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots, naturally replenishing itself. It does not require replanting, making it one of the most renewable resources known.

After harvesting, bamboo grows back and can be re-harvested every 4-1/2 years--compared to the 30- to 60-year growth cycle of most hardwoods. Bamboo holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective and ecologically responsible alternative to the widespread clear cutting of our world's precious timberland.

Bamboo is harder and denser than most hard woods, it is 16 percent harder than maple, which is the most common wood used for most cutting boards. Totally Bamboo uses the "Moso" Chinese mountain timber bamboo species, which is not a food source, or a habitat, for the Giant Panda.

Flattened strips of the timber undergo a series of specialized procedures to sterilize and cure them, which further tightens and tempers the bamboo to the perfect hardness. The bamboo strips are never colored or stained; their dark rich color presents itself when the natural sugars of the wood are caramelized with heat during the curing process producing the permanent honey color of the boards.


Totally Bamboo uses only premium grade bamboo and then, only the lower portion of each pole because it is much denser. Its factory adheres to a very stringent protocol for curing and processing, resulting in the highest quality product attainable. And it's ISO 9001 compliant which is a rating system covering non-polluting environmental issues and employee welfare, safety, and minimum age.


Highly skilled craftsmen thoroughly fine sand Totally Bamboo's cutting boards for a silky smooth touch. For adhering the multiple layers of the bamboo--which is a notoriously difficult material to glue--Totally Bamboo worked with a chemist to develop a high-grade, non-toxic food grade glue (without use of formaldehyde) that is both safe and highly durable.

About Totally Bamboo

While operating a small design and manufacturing studio that focused on luxury customized director chairs for the movie industry, Tom Sullivan and Joanne Chen experimented with bamboo in its chairs and found them to be not only lighter but much stronger than the oak they had previously used. Intrigued with using such a renewable material they set out to design various house ware products using their "engineered bamboo" and in doing so, developed the world's first bamboo cutting board. Today, Totally Bamboo is the premier manufacturer for bamboo housewares products--from cutting boards to salad bowls and plates.

Very light and thin, making it easy to move and store.
Nice looking
Seems very well-made, with good finishing.
Nice touches like the hole to hang it, or pull it out of your cupboard.
Good that they provide care instructions, but note that you can use any mineral oil on it, which is cheaper than buying the special 'bamboo oil'.

None really, except that at full price, I wouldn't be quite as ecstatic about it as I am since I got it on special (for around $15)

This cutting board has become a fixture on our kitchen island, and the plastic ones it replaced are a distant memory.

What I like about this cutting board, besides being a good buy, is that it is quite large but is not heavy. It has a "hole" so that it can be hung on a hook. It's also a nice looking piece of wood so can be left on the counter.

Excellent product. Easy to clean, easy to store. Large enough to work safely on. Does not tend to dull knife edge as glass does. Does not slice as plastic does.

HASH(0xa8ae363c) out of 5 stars Excellent board Aug. 5 2010
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Color: Brown Verified Purchase
I must admit that, right out of the package, I feared I had made a mistake in getting this board. It had that weird new bamboo board/utensil smell and was covered with fine shards (for lack of a better term) of bamboo. I rubbed the surface with a scrubbie sponge, which quickly removed the bristly bits, gave it a good wash, and proceeded to use it. I'm very pleased I kept it. It washes up beautifully, and being able to put it into the dish machine means that 1) it can be sanitized and 2) it doesn't retain odors. I have no problem cutting fruit and vegetables and there is no transfer of taste or smell. I try to remember to rub it lightly with mineral oil maybe once a week (and I buy generic store-brand oil) but even when I haven't it still comes up trumps.

This board is likely to slip around on a counter, so placing something underneath might be necessary. I have mine butting up against bottles so it stays in place that way.

Thus far, this a most excellent cutting board, easy on my knives, with the added plus that it can be put in the dish machine.

HASH(0xa8ae3a68) out of 5 stars Great board Dec 10 2009
By Lyndsay - Published on Amazon.com
Color: Brown
I've had this cutting board for about a year and a half now and I love it. It still looks beautiful, it's easy to clean, and it doesn't mess up my knives. I only put it in the dishwasher occasionally (if I use it to cut meat) as the dishwasher does dry it out a bit. Usually just a soapy dishcloth and a rinse and it's perfect.

HASH(0xa8ae3abc) out of 5 stars Nice board but... Jan. 6 2009
By RobsanX - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a nice board for cutting, and it's the perfect size, but it has a few issues. I have Formica counter tops, and I could not use this board directly on the counter top without it sliding and spinning around. I solved this by putting a place mat under the board, and now it works pretty well.

The other main drawback is that it warps easily. Even though it is dishwasher safe, I hand wash it. I was oiling it about every third time I washed it, but that didn't seem to be enough. It warped so bad that it didn't even work on the place mat. So I started oiling it every time I wash it, and the shape came back, but, yeah I have to oil it every time. This means that I use it less than I'd like because of the maintenance...

HASH(0xa8ae3e04) out of 5 stars Nice product, but incorrect dimensions in description. March 18 2010
By Salena Roper - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a very beautiful, light yet sturdy, well-made board. However, the main reason I went ahead with the purchase, despite the annoying design feature of that hole (who hangs up cutting boards?), is because the dimensions are listed as 20.5" x 14.5". The product that arrived is only 19.5" x 13.5". That may not seem like a big deal, but I have limited counter space so need to use the cutting board on top of my sink, and it does not fit. It was bought as a replacement for a 20 x 14 board, natch. As lovely and eco-friendly as it is, for $40 I need those extra square inches and for it to be true to its advertising. I'm returning it for something larger, and unfortunately, probably bulkier and not bamboo. Sorry, Mother Earth.

I bought another, thicker and larger bamboo cutting board at the same time and I use it more, but this one is very handy to grab and take to my stove area to chop things quickly. It is lightweight, but not at all fragile. The bamboo is much better than regular cutting boards, and I love that they are a quickly renewable resource. The bamboo doesn't seem to soak up liquid the way regular cutting boards do, and it looks a lot better. I love chopping on these bamboo cutting boards. They don't get splits from my knives, and the surface is much more dense and less porous! Everyone who has seen them in my kitchen loves the way they look and asks where I got them. The only thing I would say about this, is pay attention to the measurements of this one, as it is definitely smaller than my other board.
