In case you haven’t noticed, boards have gone viral. We scoured Amazon for the absolute best charcuterie boards and found one that our Test Kitchen loves. It’s the ultimate vessel for building (and serving!) a classic charcuterie board or trendy butter board.

The Royal Craft Wood bamboo cheese board is just the item we need for holiday hosting. As Taste of Home‘s Executive Culinary Director, Sarah Farmer, puts it, “It’s a big and beautiful cheese board, but it’s so much more.”

Sarah notes, “It’s fun to get creative and resourceful with choosing the board itself. But what’s more fun? A tricked-out board like this one that has so many goodies built right into it!”

You cannot go wrong with this board.”

The Best Amazon User Reviews

As a five-star kitchen tool on Amazon, here’s what other happy shoppers say about the board:

“I can’t say enough great things about this bamboo board,” shares Mary Emma, a verified Amazon reviewer. “I use mine for any gatherings I host. I have already bought three more for gifts. The quality is impeccable! Clean up is a breeze. I’ll be buying a few more for Christmas gifts.”

Verified Amazon reviewer, Sarah Bizier, adds, “This checks all the boxes. Plenty of room for three cheeses, crackers, pretzels and a bunch of grapes. The pull out knife drawer is great! When I first got it, I washed it with soap and water and dried well and then lightly oiled with mineral oil and I store it in the box it came in. I’m buying one for each of my brothers for Christmas.”

“The craftsmanship and size of this board is perfect,” writes Cam G., a verified Amazon reviewer. “My favorite part is the drawer that holds the utensils!”
