When it comes to meal prep, having the right tools to assist with chopping veggies, mincing garlic or whatever task your recipe calls for makes all the difference in prep time. Of course when you’re ready to put the meal altogether, top-rated cookware (like all of our favorite brands here) helps, too.
And when it’s time to throw out your overused cutting board, we have the upgrade you didn’t know your kitchen needed. As one of our all-time favorite “Shark Tank” products, the Cup Board Pro is the modern take on the traditional cutting board.
Made from eco-friendly Richlite, which is a material made from wood fiber and recycled-paper composite, this cutting board is more durable, won’t dull knives, harbor bacteria or absorb any unwanted flavors or odors.
But just when you thought it couldn’t better, the Cup Board Pro is also reversible. The side that has a grove around the perimeter has an attached removable tray that can catch food scraps and juices, while the reverse flat side is great for chopping, slicing or mincing.
While we might have just found your new favorite kitchen accessory, the Cup Board Pro also has an interesting back story. The simple-yet-genius cutting board was once the passion project of New York City firefighter, chef and dad, Keith Young. But when Young passed away from cancer, it was his three children who were able to pitch the product on a season 10 episode of “Shark Tank” in 2018. The family scored a rare $100,000 deal with all five sharks.
The Cup Board Pro finally hit the shelves at Williams Sonoma in 2019 thanks to an exclusive partnership with the retailer, and now it’s available today in two new colors, natural with a slate-colored cup and slate with a slate-colored cup.
While it’s a bit pricey at $69.95, consider it an investment in your meal prep time — plus, your knives will thank you. With the Cup Board Pro, you can say goodbye to messy countertops for good.
