Fact: A great cutting board is the backbone of any kitchen. Whether you’re chopping potatoes for a side dish, carving up a pork loin fresh off the grill, or just slicing up some carrot sticks, a quality board is essential. And when it comes to choosing one, the super-popular reBoard from Material is arguably the best of the bunch. In fact, it’s so good that they even launched a petite version, called the (mini) reBoard that’s storable, stackable, and incredibly adorable! Available in three very chic colors, our favorite was the dusty Pink Salt. And we were not alone, because the color was so popular with customers that it sold out in just three days! Good news, though: It’s finally back in stock and ready to ship out immediately.
With the (mini), you get that great functionality of a superb cutting board in an easy-to-store size. Snag a few to cut down on cross-contamination: slice raw chicken on one and onions on another. And while you’re at it, add a third one to your bar cart for slicing lemons and fruits. Since it’s smaller, it’s also easier to haul out if you’re prepping a snack or working with limited counter space. But despite its tiny proportions, the (mini) is mighty: About the size of a standard piece of paper, it’s still big enough to tackle larger jobs without hogging up all your free space. It’s one of the key reasons why Kitchn’s Managing Editor Lauren picked the (mini) as her must-give gift of 2020—and even snagged one for herself (in the coveted Pink Salt colorway). “I continuously marvel at how beautiful it is whenever I pull it out,” she adds.
Size aside, the (mini) reBoard is also durable and built to last. The secret is in its construction: Made up of recycled kitchen plastic with some renewable sugarcane thrown in for extra toughness, the cutting board is not only environmentally sound, but also effective. And like its bigger sibling, the (mini) is also dishwasher-safe, so you can toss it in your regular cycle without worrying about damaging the board—an especially important feature since you’ll likely be using it a whole lot.
And if you’re looking to complete your set, you’ll be excited to know that Material is dropping more of the O.G.-sized reBoards (they’ve been back-ordered for months!) in the coming week. But since these will all likely sell out again, make sure you snag yours in your favorite color before they disappear again.
