This sturdy bamboo cutting board will help you keep things together while you're slicing and dicing. The board has unique design, with edges that stick out 90 degrees along the front and back sides. The front ridge hangs down to rest up against the corner of your counter, securing the board so that it doesn't shift around while in use. The raised, back edge acts as a block for the tip of your knife, and actually helps with proper chopping technique. Once your onions are minced and your celery sliced, the back ridge also serves as a backstop as you slide your veggies into the pot. Those angled edges also allow you to store your cutting board upright, saving valuable countertop or drawer space. Made in China.
