Product Review: Totally Bamboo 3 Bowl Large Prep Board

The Ranting Reviewer does not get paid or receive any revenue from manufacturers or retailers of products reviewed. I occasionally receive products that I am asked to use and see what I think. I take a look, try them out and tell you all about them.

I have another product today from Totally Bamboo.

The 3 Bowl Large Prep Board arrived the other day and it is quite stunning.

To give you perspective, this 16.5″x 22″ is a big board. There is lots of room for food here.

First, look at that grain. It is just beautiful!

The bottom of the board has thick, sturdy legs with a rubber sole to keep it from sliding on the counter.

One of the key things about the board are the three bowls. They are designed for containing the ingredients you have just sliced.

The bowls are easily removed (see the indent for your finger to grip the bowl). This makes it for easy grabbing.

The lips of the bowls are flush with the top of the board so it you can slide the ingredients in.

I love this picture. The beauty of the board and the great colors from the vegetables are stunning.

OK. Beauty is one thing. Usability is another. Let’s get to work.

Slicing left no cuts or nicks on the board. I am sure with use there will be some of it, but with care, it can be kept to a minimum.

Using the back edge of the knife (please never use your cutting edge), the peppers end up in the cup.

My stir fry ingredients are ready.

Here is where the value of those removable bowls come in. The board is hefty and large (which is a good thing). As you can tell from the picture above, where I prep my food is a distance from my stove. Way too often I drop some of my prepped ingredients as I transfer them to the stove. Not anymore.

Grabbing each cup is easy.

And dumping the ingredients in.

Prep can be for salads too.

Like those above.

In addition to using the board for prep, it makes a gorgeous platter. As you can see above, I have presented ingredients for an Asian-Salmon salad that allowed everyone to make their own.

My Take: What can I say other than this is the 3 Bowl Large Prep Board is not only a nice looking board, but adds a level of functionality over any other board I have used. The use of sustainable bamboo removes any guilt over having such a substantial board and the inclusion of the prep bowls is ideal for any professional chef or home cook. To be blunt, go buy this today! You can purchase it here.
