From the Core Bamboo website:
All of our products are hand made from top quality organically grown bamboo. Core Bamboo products should be hand washed with soapy warm water and wiped dry. Our products are not meant for the microwave, oven or dishwasher. Our bowls are meant for cold and warm foods, using them to serve very hot items such as soup will alter the shape of the bowls over long periods of time. This is true of all wooden bowls as well as bamboo. Cutting boards and trays can endure hotter temperatures but should still not be used in the microwave, oven and dishwasher. It is also suggested to apply any food safe mineral oil to all bowls and boards when the bamboo starts to look tired, this will keep the bowl fresh and will help in preserving the natural character that each product has.
So it doesn't sound like the liquid is inherently a problem so much as heat exposure.
