My Review of the Bambusi 4-Piece Natural Bamboo Cheese Board with Cutlery Set by Eliza
The Bambusi Bamboo Cheese Board with Cutlery Set is a wooden “Charcuterie Platter” made out of bamboo. It comes with a hidden slide-out drawer and 4 stainless steel knives.
I think this would make a “Great Gift” for someone on Valentine’s Day or any other special occasion. You might even want to pick one up for yourself!
Okay, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner….and I don’t know about you, but I love pouring a glass of wine and having a few appetizers sharing a quiet evening at home with my significant other.
I’m not into cooking a big meal or going out to eat – is way too busy for me. There are usually long lineups and waits at restaurants and that JUST doesn’t appeal to me!
I wanted to make Valentine’s Day a bit different this year. I am looking to have something special to serve my traditional appetizers dinner on.
A friend of mine served some appetizers at Christmas on a Bambusi Bamboo Cheese board. When I saw this board I knew that it just might be what I was looking for to make staying at home a little more special this Valentine’s Day!
What should you look for in a good cheese board?
A good cheese board should be made from a BPA-free material. You want a board that does not absorb or transfer odors to the cheese or other food items that you are placing on the platter.
Of course, your choice of a cheese board will depend on your personal preference and how you plan on using it.
Here are some features to consider when making your choice:
- Style/Design: There are lots of different board and cutlery designs to choose from. Choose a finish that fits your style and decor. I like to look for wood materials that are natural.
- Size & Quality of Cutlery: Knife blades should be made of stainless steel and handles preferably made of wood… I like the feel of bamboo.
- Optional Features: Some boards have a ridge that can be great for putting crackers, meats or other finger foods on. It makes your items look a little more fancy. Another must feature, in my opinion, is a sliding drawer, where the cutlery can be stored. This way all your parts stay in one place. You do not have to go hunting through your drawers looking for your cheese knives.
- Guarantee: If you can choose a cheese board with a guarantee.
I think Bamboo is one of the best materials for a cheese board or platter…
Bamboo is considered to be environmentally friendly. It is made of hard grass; it is a sustainable; it is a renewable resource; it absorbs less liquid than other types of wooden boards.
I am excited to recommend the Bambusi 4-Piece Natural Bamboo Cheese Board with Cutlery Set. I think this board has a beautiful, unique, design that is very attractive looking on your table. It has also been given great reviews by a large number of people on Amazon.ca
This is that all-in-one Cheese Board I have been looking for. I think it is a great option for a romantic dinner or for entertaining a crowd. You can serve cheese, meats, olives, crackers, …. or whatever your heart desires.
The Bambusi Bamboo Cheese Board not only adds that special touch to a special evening at home (Valentine’s Day). I think it will also WOW your friends and guests when entertaining on that special wine and cheese evening.

I love the side drawer that slides and gives the board that “chic” quality.

Amazon also posts this guarantee: “Our bamboo cheese boards are tailor-made with cheese lovers in mind that exceeds current standards that go beyond expectations, if for any reason our product doesn’t live up your expectations, contact us for a replacement or a full refund.”
A few people had an issue with the size finding it either too big or too small. Amazon site quotes size as ….. I suggest you take a tape measure and map it out on your table to see if it is the right size for you.
