Home cooks with hand dexterity issues can now chop vegetables with ease using the Cibocal cutting board. These 15 ½” x 11” x 1/2” cutting boards feature a special spring loaded bar that you can wedge the tip of your cook or chef’s knife under to provide a pivot. Your knife then becomes a lever for easy and safe chopping that is perfect for people with arthritis, like the inventor, or other hand strength issues. The board is made from Densetec™ a HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) that has been FDA approved for food applications, is dishwasher safe and can stands unsupported on a bench, shelf or cupboard for easy air drying.
With shipping to the US, the cost of the Cibocal cutting board is NZ $128.00. That converts to $164 US. I know that’s insanely expensive for a cutting board, so I’m waiting to hear back from them to see if there are plans to make these boards available from retailers here in the US.
