Review:  I’m an organization freak.  OK, maybe not as bad as some people, but I do like things to be orderly so they’re easy to find.  I’ve been wanting to get rid of my old plastic silverware tray and try something new.  So, when I came across this bamboo organizer, I wanted to give it a try.

It arrived well wrapped with a set of care and use instructions.  There are a couple dividers that can be removed or added to make larger or smaller compartments.  It’s also expandable, which helps for different size drawers.  I did find that it wasn’t as sturdy as I was expecting, but once it was in place in my drawer it was fine.  However, I wouldn’t suggest lifting it out of the drawer fully loaded as I don’t think it would handle the weight.

I like some of the ideas provided for using the divider and if I had more drawer space, I could totally see myself using one to organize k-cups or spices.  In the end, I’m happy with my drawer organizer and would pick up more in the future.

Review:  My kitchen has multiple cutting boards.  I have the old school big plastic cutting board.  I have a couple of those smaller flexible plastic ones.  But I’ve always wanted a wood board.  I was excited when I saw this set of three bamboo boards as I could really use the different size boards.

The boards were well wrapped and included a set of care instructions.  There weren’t any defects in the boards and so after a quick wash, I put them to work.  I set out making dinner and chopping up chicken and potatoes and all that I needed for my meal.  I put them through the paces and they came through with flying colors.  Outside of a little sliding around on my counter top (and that’s quite normal with that horrid Formica top), I was quite pleased with the cutting boards.

After my meal, cleaning the boards was quite easy.  I was excited to see that bamboo is more germ and bacteria resistant and even Googled that to ensure the manufacturer’s claims.  Who wouldn’t like a product that would help in cleanliness and food safety?

All in all, I was happy with these boards and can totally see myself getting an even larger one (the largest of the three was a little bigger than a sheet of paper) when I have more room in my kitchen.  If you’re looking for cutting boards, give these a try.
