Protect counters while slicing and dicing with a cutting board. No matter what kind of food is being prepared, a cutting block is a great item to have in any kitchen. This flat board is most often made of wood, and is designed to provide a hard, smooth surface to use cutlery on. Many cutting blocks have additional features to make them more useful for cutting specific foods. Browse boards from Martha Stewart, Joseph Joseph, Progressive and many others.
A grip foot cutting block is the perfect way to protect smooth, shiny counter tops. This cutting board style offers the same solid wooden block as many others, but on each of the bottom four corners it has an embellishment: a rubber grip foot. These feet hold the board firmly in place against whatever it is standing on, preventing slipping and sliding when cutting tougher foods on top of it. Grip foot cutting blocks are a great way to make cutlery use safer.
Whether it's raw chunks about to be tossed into a stew or a whole, freshly-cooked ham, when meat needs to be cut, a meat grip cutting block makes it an easier task. These boards feature textured centers with small points sticking up. Place the meat on top of the points when cutting to prevent any slipping and sliding, even with slippery raw steaks and other cuts.
Do a lot of dicing and mincing? Consider adding a folding cutting block to the kitchen tools. These super thin boards are made of durable synthetic materials, and can be found in many vibrant colors. The best thing about a folding board is that it lays flat for cutting, then folds along lines on the surface to form a chute. This chute makes pouring finely chopped, minced and diced foods into a bowl or pot much easier, minimizing spills and messes.
There is also a bread cutting block designed just for slicing. This board is large enough to hold an entire loaf of bread, and features even slots across the length. Cut by matching the knife to the slots for perfectly even bread slices every time.
