    Do you have to be careful putting raw meat on our bamboo?

    I wouldn't put raw meat on the bamboo. My questions is "Why do you want to put raw meat on bamboo?" I think anything that touches raw meat needs to be properly sanitized. That is why I love our white cutting boards. They go in the dishwasher.

    I thought the bamboo could go in the dishwasher???!!!

    so i just looked, so it's the utensils that are dishwasher safe, not the platters or bowls, right?

    Any of the bamboo that is glued together (the bowls, platters, tiny ladle) cannot go in the dishwasher. Also the tongs because of the hinges. Anything else can.

    The raw meat question... I don't see why not, because things are sanitised by handwashing with soap and hot water, not just by cleaning with a dishwasher (think about it - plenty of people don't have dishwashers and wash everything by hand). I also wonder though why you would want to...

    However, I would not cut raw meat (or anything, for that matter) on the bamboo pieces.

    Anyone else have a reason to not put raw meat on it?

    what about the bacteria that could stay? Isn't that why they say to not use raw meat on a wood cutting board?

    Just what I've heard, I don't know one way or the other myself.

    I think if you are not using the bamboo for cutting on it would be fine, as it wouldn't have any scratches for bacteria to get into. The bamboo is naturally water resistant which inhibits bacteria (that from a label on a bamboo bowl I just bought from (gasp!) target. I'm afraid I couldn't resist, it was beautiful, and 75% off...).

    Bamboo does not absorb the moisture like wood does.
