The Workbench Cutting Board measures 22 inches by 14 inches, which gives you enough space to chop just about anything. But it gets way better than just surface area. Also included are three stainless steel measuring cups into which you can directly scrape whatever it is you’re chopping for easy measurement. It features a disposal bin as well, so no worries about the ends of your onions or your tomato cores getting mixed into the parts you actually want to eat. There is a hole in the corner of the board where you can scrape the parts you don’t want, then a stainless steel drawer catches them. The drawer slides out for easy disposal.
But wait, there’s more! You also get a stainless steel scoop to easily transfer your chopped items into either the measuring cups or the pan or bowl you’re using. If you’re like me and normally try to do it with either your hands (which often mashes the chopped ingredients) or your knife (which dulls your knife), you know how fabulous that is. The board itself is made of Victorian ash, which is a hardwood grown on an eco-sustainable plantation, and will not damage your knife’s edge. Being hardwood, it’s also pretty hard to scratch or cut its surface. All pieces are removable for easy cleanup.
I really, really want one of these. Unfortunately, at $300.00 US it’s just a little too spendy for my budget. But, it would be worth saving up for if it’s really as wonderful as it looks on paper.
