Will a small notch out of a nice piece of wood tempt you to spend $120 Canadian dollars? If your answer is no, perhaps you didn’t see how pleasantly multiples fit together. Specifically, how the notches would give an angular feel once set side by side, adding a little geometry to your food presentation. If you couldn’t care less about how your food is presented, then lucky you, no need to spend the money.

This cutting board has a Z shape to provide two useful functions. The front ridge rests against the edge of the counter to keep the board from sliding forward. The back keeps your knife in place while cutting and may also be used to funnel your chopped veggies into a bowl or pan. And, if that’s not enough for you, that same Z shape allows the board to stand upright as well; that little detail should not to be underestimated if your kitchen lacks storage space. If you still refuse to get excited about a cutting board, there’s a video below for visual stimulation.

How about a nice slice of Swiss to show off your cheese spread? A composite of acrylic resin and powdered bauxite means the material is similar to marble, so think about chilling it ahead of time to keep your cheeses fresh on the table. If you look closely, you’ll see that one hole goes all the way through for easy hanging. And there’s no worries about bacteria or odors as the board is non-porous.

Cutting boards with cutouts: a small alteration that helps guide food into/onto a prep bowl or plate. One of these boards might just fit your sink, but check to make sure your undermount has a minimum of 1/2″ reveal. Elkay has a whole range of sinks and accessories, so if neither of these fit your specifications, you might check out their other offerings.
Purchase Information:Price: $46.72 - 55.68

Corral bread crumbs easily with this cutting board from Alessi. As you slice bread, crumbs fall between the slats into the tray below, which then pulls out for quick cleaning. Designed by Anna and Gian Franco Gasparini, the very same couple who designed the Milky Way Minor Cheese Knife Set. If you know someone serious about their bread and cheese, you might consider either (or both, if you’re feeling generous) as a good gift idea.

These wooden cutting boards are nice enough to display on a wall in your kitchen, and that will be easy to arrange as they have leather straps for exactly that purpose. Keep in mind that the larger the board, the higher the price, and the more you spend the more you’ll want to keep that board looking good with appropriate cutting board oil (such as BCM&T oil).

Who knew adding a little milk paint to a plain serving board would make it so much better? The folks that made these, that’s who. A little stripe action and suddenly the serving board lives on the wall instead of in a cabinet. Made from Pennsylvania sycamore.

If you’ve spent any time in the kitchen chopping up ingredients you know how handy this cutting board would be with its inset bowl. You can remove the bowl for safe transport to the pan, or, alternatively, use the bowl for dips and sauces when you’ve laid out a vegetable spread. Now on sale for $35 from Furni.

Nice. This commercial-quality two-piece cutting board brings modularity to the kitchen. One side of each panel is smooth, so when used together you have one large flat prep area. On the other side of one panel there’s a bread surface and a juice groove on the other, so you’re pretty much covered for any cutting surface. Used alone or together, you can configure the boards to suit your preparation needs. Available in Natural with a Slate core or Slate with a Natural core. (And, yes, it will fit in the dishwasher.)

A cutting board is one tool that most of us would agree is absolutely necessary in the kitchen (unless you have wood countertops, maybe). Each board from Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co is hand made from a single piece of wood (so, there’s no glue seams). Prefinished with their cutting board oil, each board should last for generations if used often and cared for properly.
