If you’ve been reading this blog for even a little while, you’ll know that I’m drawn to colourful things. They make me and my home happier and I love when they are functional too. Recently, the lovely folks at Everten (an Aussie kitchenware online store) contacted me and asked if I’d like to review something for my kitchen and I was curious to see what they had available.
I took a good look through their website and almost instantly noticed that they stock Joseph Joseph, a kitchen brand that’s a colour lovers dream, I was 98% sure I wanted to pick something from that brand. Everten have lots of great brands to choose from and I was really impressed with how easy the site is to navigate. (The former web designer in me really notices these things!) After checking out the whole site, I did end up back at the Joseph Joseph section, and in the end I chose a Joseph Joseph Index Large Chopping Board Set to try out.
I’ve been spending more time in my kitchen, as it’s one of my aims for the year, and I noticed that the chopping boards needed to be washed a lot because there are only two. Food safety is really important to me, so when I spotted the chopping board set that includes one board for red meat, one for cooked foods, one for fish and one for veggies – I thought it would be a great help. They come in a cool case which matches all the stainless steel small appliances that we have.
I’ve been testing them out and I love that they are easy to spot the right one by both colour and symbol. They also have juice catchers on the red meat board and the veggie one, which is really handy. I don’t prepare fish so the blue board will be for chicken in our house, but it’s cool that it has a grip line in the middle so that it doesn’t slip and slide as you’re trying to cut the food up. Some of the boards have a slight bend that I noticed the first time I used them, but I haven’t noticed it since.
The cooked foods board is the most used in our home and I’ve found the grooves to be good for catching crumbs but not so deep that it would change the shape of the bread when making sandwiches. I’m quite picky when it comes to these little things, so I notice. I was also surprised at how easy they are to clean and that you don’t leave and knife marks in the board even when cutting things repeatedly.
They’ve each got grippy corners on both sides and the backs of each board are flat in case you need that second side. The chopping boards have fitted into our kitchen really easily and will be getting plenty of use. I love that they look good on the bench too!
Do you use a chopping board set? What works for you?
