Cutting Boards

Tilt Cutting Boards

As we’re all well aware, there are many excellent cutting boards for us to choose from, and now we can add one more to the ever growing pile. Danish designer Tobias Tøstesen has created the Tilt Cutting Board for Menu, and it has an angled side to let it lean steadily against a wall for storage. Its asymmetry adds further to its aesthetic; rounded and straight lines set it apart from the usual (now boring?) rectangle.

Chopping Board Set

When you’re out on an adventure, there’s no reason to do without decent kitchen tools. This medium sized chopping board folds up and stores a knife inside, allowing you to prepare foods with ease on your picnic or day trip. Does that mean there’s no need for soggy sandwiches? Yes, indeed.

Handled Cutting Boards

What’s this pile of curvy, ornate wood planks? They’re cutting boards by Haidee Drew, and each one has an intricate handle that’s sure to dress up every bit of food you prepare and serve. You might recognize a small nod to old silver serving pieces in the design of the handles, and you’d be spot on, as the designer drew her inspiration from the silver collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Shape Boards

Gah! I didn’t think it possible to admire a cutting board so much. This collection of Shape Boards from Bower Studio (also available from Cooper-Hewitt Shop) has my head in a spin. The blank side is for cutting, the (non-toxic) painted side for a decorative twist of a 3D geometric shape. And, get ready for it, Bower Studio also has Shape Mirrors, but that’s for another post (tomorrow).

Rothko Serving Boards

These wooden boards are for serving rather than for cutting, which makes sense once you notice the nicely crafted recessed rectangles (hence the ‘Rothko’) and how well the different sizes would mix and match for an architecturally minimal presentation. Made from sustainable panga panga wood, the Rothko Serving Boards were designed by Swedish studio Claesson Koivisto Rune and produced by Botswana furniture maker Peter Mabeo working in collaboration with local artisans.

What is it?

Hmm, what in the world could this small, ramp-like item be? It’s made from natural cork and is about the size of a medium sized notepad (for lack of a better comparison). Any guesses? Pay attention to the incline, ribbing, and bumper at the end… would you be able to store, say, longer, flat things on it somehow?

Triangle Cutting Board

Don’t ask me why you need a triangle cutting board, because I don’t know. Maybe you don’t like 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. Three sizes available.

Complete Carving Set

Vegans, ignore this post. Just skip on down to the next one. Now, omnivores, it’s not even Halloween and here we are talking about Thanksgiving. What gives? Well, it’s better to be prepared and get what you need when it’s in stock than wait until the last minute when it’s all gone. As a case in point, this Complete Carving Set by Joseph Joseph was in stock when I bookmarked it last week, and now it’s not.

However, you can purchase the non-slip, multi-function chopping board (a.k.a. Cut&Carve™ Plus, $18) and the 8” carving knife and a 7.5” carving fork which join neatly together with magnets and store safely inside a protective sheath (a.k.a. Duo™ Carve, $30) separately, or put your name on the waiting list for when the set is back in stock.

Stone Chopping Board

This looks way too nice to use as a chopping board, doesn’t it? White Morwad marble provides a durable surface for dinner prep and serving while the delicate brass saucer is the perfect spot for dips or other special fare. And, if you like the look of the marble and brass, you’ll want to consider the Stone Spice Grinder (shown below) and Stone Pestle And Mortar by Tom Dixon as well.

ButcherBlock

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.

Teroforma Bread & Butter Boards

If you’re serious about your bread and various spreads, take a look at the Teroforma boards. One is longer, for baguettes and such, the other shorter for regular loaves. A removable soapstone bowl nests into an opening which then serves as a hook or handle for storage or carrying. One side of the board has a sloped ‘well’ that will corral all manner of crackers.

Hex Cutting Board

Shoot, I’m such a sucker for geometric anything. Simply facet the edges of an American Maple wood board and I’m already contemplating plonking down a credit card, no matter the many cutting boards already in my cabinets. Now, the faceted edges do make the board easier to pick up (on one side), so it’s actually a functional feature as well as a stylistic choice.
