Our bamboo products are made from industrial manufacturers’ discarded bamboo. Excess scraps are gathered from bamboo furniture or chopstick manufacturers and ground into a powder. The bamboo powder is mixed with corn starch and a food grade melamine binder, then molded into tableware. All our tableware is free of PVC, BPA and all phthalates.
What is Bamboo? Bamboo is a renewable resource that grows quickly without fertilizers or pesticides and is an organic material that will biodegrade when buried in the ground. The melamine binder will break down at a much slower rate than the bamboo, but ensures longevity and durability.
Dishwasher safe? Yes. We recommend using the top rack and no prolonged soaking.
Can it go in the microwave? No. The bamboo material will not react well to extreme temperatures above boiling or below freezing.
Will it scratch? Normal forks and knives will not scratch the surface. The use of steak knives is not recommended.
What happens if I drop it on the ground? This product will not shatter like glass or ceramic and will not usually break when dropped but it may crack or chip if it hits a hard surface like tile or concrete.
