Bamboo: the right tool for the job
From slicing delicate parsley leaves to chopping carrots all of our APTITLIG chopping boards are made of fast-growing, long-lasting bamboo – a renewable material that offers a highly durable, nick-resistance surface.
How to choose
A chopping board for every task
There are many different kinds of chopping boards, and they're all good for different things. Kitchen work is also more hygienic when you use different chopping boards for different raw materials. Remember that the chopping board should be soft, so as not to damage the edge of the knife - materials like wood or plastic are preferable. Wooden chopping boards are more stable than plastic, while plastic is easier to lift and clean. You probably could use both kinds.
What is bamboo?
Strong, flexible and one of the world's fastest growing plants – bamboo has many uses that make it an excellent renewable material. It’s a type of grass and usually grows without the need for fertilizers or irrigation. After being harvested, it grows new shoots that are ready for harvesting after 4-6 years. At IKEA we use bamboo for items like furniture, bathroom decor, baskets and lamps – and we are constantly exploring more areas of use for this versatile material.
Oil, protect and preserve
A wooden chopping board is stable and kind to knives. With the proper care, it will serve you for a very long time. Oil it before you use it for the first time. And after that, at regular intervals. Always wash it by hand and let it dry standing on its side. For a real lift - sand it and oil it - and it will be like new again.
