Mastrad Origami Cutting Boards

Alton Brown is famous for disliking what he calls "unitaskers" in the kitchen. Those are items that have just one use. He's usually talking about things gadgets that have a very narrow purpose. Like a caviar spoon.

But really, we have a lot of tools that have one basic use. Knives cut, graters grate, and ovens bake. And cutting boards are just a surface for holding things that you cut.

Sure, you could use a cutting board to smash something, but there are probably better things to use.

But what if a cutting board could do something else?

The Origami Cutting Boards from Mastrad (they come in a set of two) fold up and snap together to form bowls. It's kind of a neat idea, particularly for people who don't have a lot of storage space. And the folded bowls are kind of interesting looking. You probably wouldn't use them for a fancy dinner, but they'd be great for snacks or casual affairs.

Who's it for: Great for folks who are short of storage space and people who like quirky bowls.

Pros: Dual-use item. Easy to store. Dishwasher and microwave safe.

Cons: Once they've been folding into bowls, they don't lay completely flat, so they're not the perfect cutting board for all purposes.

Wishes: These would be awesome if they came in different colors.
