3. The reBoard
We’re huge fans of this stylish eco-friendly cutting board (it made our Kitchn Essentials list!), which can be used to chop everything from onions to cooked lobster. Managing Editor Lauren tested the board and reported: “It never slides across the counter while I’m chopping, like some of my other cutting boards do (which is super dangerous!).” A major plus if you’re worried about keeping Mom’s fingers safe in the kitchen.
