Cook to Perfection

When cooking, do you get frustrated trying to measure out a precise "dash" or "pinch" of an ingredient? Are you not satisfied until you're sure your celery has been "minced", rather than just "diced"?

Well, it's time to let your inner obsessive loose in the kitchen, with this precision cutting board. The durable, beechwood board is clearly printed with absurdly detailed measurement markings, allowing you to chop perfectly square roots or calculate a slice of "pi" with absolute precision. Made in China.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

      Comments about OCD CUTTING BOARD:

      In the second image for this product profile the hand cutting the carrots is NOT using the guidelines!! At all! As a product marketed to OCD cooks... this is ironic and bothersome.

      Other than that, this looks like an awesomely useless product which I must purchase immediately.

        Comments about OCD CUTTING BOARD:

        Looks nice, but it is way smaller than expected. We've had it for a couple of weeks and still haven't used it because a) it is ridiculously small, and b) I'm afraid if I use it the wood will stain. More of a decorative piece I guess but for me it is just taking up space. I wish I would not have thrown out the packaging immediately because I would be returning it if I could.

              I purchased this for my husband for our 5 year anniversary. Every year we buy the "traditional" gifts for that year. This year is wood. It is perfect because he loves to cook and is a little OCD.

                This was a gift for our son who is an avid chef. Our family has been involved with the Food & Wine industry for 3 generations and I was looking for an unusual, yet practical idea. I don't know about the construction yet, but it will get a lot of use and I expect this cutting board to hold up.

                      This was a good for a very good cook, who has most of the cooking equipment he needs. Everytime I am in the kitchen, I feel the need to measure something I am cutting and this a great gift for an engineer who is also a cook.

                            I got this cutting board for christmas from my husband, I was extremely excited but it's been only over a month and it literally fell into four pieces. I hardly ever use it but it was only like 4 pieces of wood super glued together. I thought it was one solid piece of wood and it seemed sturdy at first then ended up falling apart. Very disappointed.

                            Is it just us, or does just looking at this uncommon cutting board make you want to start slicing, chopping and dicing? We think this board would make a great gift for not only the OCD chef, but anyone who loves to cook. Do you agree?

                            I've seen this around before, so it's not entirely original, but I still love it. I have a friend who's a very OCD cook/eater, and have already purchased this to give to her for the holidays.

                            This would be awsome if it were a man-made material, not wood. Too easy to cross-contaminate foods.

                            Clever idea, but too small and made in China again. Can't support that. Love the idea.

                            I've been doing alright so far, doesn't seem all that helpful.

                            Interesting idea. Though it seems sort of tongue in cheek, it is quite factual and for a serious newbie cook, this would be a good help. I would buy it for my daughter.

                            So cute, but unfortunately made in China.

                            I think this is also great for novice cooks.

                            not a good kitchen tool. also, some things are worth making in china, but this could totally be manufactured in the US if they cared.

                            This is over the top, even for OCD.

                            OK! Very witty and points for that but it is made in China and I am trying really hard not to buy products made there for a variety of reason!
