Features: Vegetables springing off or slipping out of the chopping board, from underneath the knife is a commonplace occurrence. Frustrating as the experience is, there seems to be a solution in sight. Terence Conran, by Royal Doulton has beautiful looking Oak Chopping Boards that come with a serrated surface. The surface has grooves running lengthwise that check items from slipping out of the board. Wonderful and natural, the chopping board has a large groove running along the circumference, which collects all the juices that naturally ooze out while chopping. British design at its finest, the boards are made in American oak with oil finish. Hand-wash only.
What’s working: Natural Oak instills a bit of class in your kitchen. The boards are designed from a practical viewpoint and are quite useful.
Price and availability: Square Terence Conran Chopping Board is available for £14.95, and the superior-looking Round Terence Conran Chopping Board is retailing for £29.95.
