The Joseph Joseph Cutting Board has a built-in knife sharpener

Joseph Joseph Cutting Board and knife sharpener

When you’re prepping ingredients for a meal, there’s a good chance you’re going to have to slice and dice something. Cooking is all about the process, and you don’t want to cut something too big or too small, or that might change the cooking times or temperatures down the line. Of course, to be able to cut through anything, you want to make sure you have a sharp knife. However, we almost always forget to sharpen our knives until they’re so dull that they’re useless.

That normally means we have to get out a knife sharpener right before we chop up meat or veggies. Following the logic of most people I know, this means you’ll spend twenty minutes trying to remember where you put it. If you’re a rather forgetful person, then it would likely be useful to make smaller kitchen tools easier to find. The Joseph Joseph Cutting Board may look like a regular plastic cutting board, but in the handle it hides a ceramic knife sharpener.

This will work with most stainless steel blades, but shouldn’t be used on serrated blades or ceramic knives, or no one is going to have a good time. This comes in large or small, in color options of green or black. You’ll be looking at paying $29.99-33.99 depending on the size you choose. This is dishwasher safe, and features a surface that won’t dull blades.
