Triangle Cutting Board

Don’t ask me why you need a triangle cutting board, because I don’t know. Maybe you simply cannot stand rectangles and only allow equilateral shapes in your vicinity at all times. If that’s the case, you’re a little weird/crazy and we should probably be friends. Each triangle is handcrafted by local San Francisco wood worker Luke Bartels from locally salvaged and milled wood. Three sizes available.

Hand-Painted Abstract Cutting Boards

Okay, so this isn’t going to appeal to everyone, but hand-painted cutting boards! With abstract shapes! Is that not extremely fun to see in the realm of kitchen tools? They’ve got a good safe mineral oil finish, though you’ll still want to take care and treat these boards as what they are: three quarters utilitarian kitchen staple and one quarter piece of art.

Euclid Measuring Cup

Yes, you saw this Euclid Measuring Cup back in a previous link pack, and now you get to see it again. What’s so special about it? Well, take a look at its funny shape and you’ll see how it’s tapered towards its bottom, and that mathematically optimal design allows for more precise measurements. Small measurements will have the same accuracy as larger ones, which is important for anyone that wants to get recipes just right.

Ding Enameled Cast Iron Casserole with Stand

I know next to nothing about cooking, but I sure know a handsome casserole dish when I see one. Made from cast iron (which is very efficient at retaining heat), the dish has a flat base that sits easily on an oven rack or stovetop with a separate stand (and non-slip silicone pads) to raise the dish for tabletop serving. Those of you familiar with the the ancient Chinese tradition of “Ding” will notice that this piece shares some similarities in shape; think of it as a modern update to some of the world’s oldest cookware.

Be Nice Tea Towel x David Shrigley

It’d be awfully tempting to stuff this tea towel into the mouth of a loud, mean person. Would we get punched in the face? Probably. But, it might shut them up, at least temporarily. And, it’d be hard to be mean when holding a tea towel with a pretty rainbow and the words ‘BE NICE’, wouldn’t it? So, maybe they’d change, as if by magic. After removing it from their mouths, of course.

Zig Zag Cutting Board Set

The Zig Zag Cutting Board Set does double duty; use the flat side as a cutting board or flip it around to use the zig zag side as a trivet or serving board. Plus, they’ll stack and store neatly away when not in use. Both pieces are finished with a food safe, homemade all-natural mix of beeswax and oil (a small tin of the wood balm is included). Nice, huh?

Porcelain Spear Mortar & Pestle

Mortar and pestles are sculptural kitchen necessities, so they’re often found out on the countertop. Now, this particular Porcelain Spear Mortar & Pestle would be an absolute shame to hide away, because it’s plainly beautiful. It’s a functional object, to be sure, yet its elegant curves add just a hint of decoration. The white unglazed porcelain is effective for grinding spices and won’t get in the way of your minimalist tendencies.

ButcherBlock by HollerDesign

These end grain ButcherBlocks are very durable; the design allows you to cut in between the fibers of the wood instead of across them like most cutting boards. This makes for easy maintenance and a very long lifetime, which are two important features for any cutting board over the $100 mark.

Canot Cutting Boards

A lovely cutting board, is it not? And it’s got an accompanying Canot Kitchen Brush especially suited to “scrape, scrub, clean and cut” those fruits and vegetables that are oh-so-good for that body of yours. Maybe with both the cutting board and brush you’ll be more inclined to fit those fruits and veggies into your daily meal planning. It’s worth a shot.

Turn Around Juicer

If you don’t mind using a little old fashioned elbow grease to produce your morning orange juice, then you’ll want to consider the simplicity of this wooden juicer from KiBiSi and Muuto. The Turn Around Juicer stands on its own and fits the palm nicely. Shall I point out that this won’t need any updating as years come and go, unlike other electrical juicers? Plus, the juice will taste all the more sweeter knowing you made it yourself (and burned some calories whilst doing so).
