Now, cooking at home and cooking on a line in a restaurant are two very different things, but after spending time as a prep cook here in NYC, I’ve found that a few basic tenets should stay the same: working efficiently, cleaning as you go, and making sure all your ingredients and tools are in place. That’s why so many high-quality kitchen tools are great for both professional settings and home kitchens — including everything from top-tier chef’s knives and cookware to cleaning solutions, organizers, and more. However, when you’re buying high-quality items, you’ll often run into one issue: the price. That’s why, when items like this go on sale, we can’t wait to share the news, and this Memorial Day, the one thing I’m buying on sale is the reBoard from Material, an absolute kitchen workhorse.

What Is the reBoard? 

Material is an editor-favorite brand that makes high-quality cookware, utensils, and kitchen tools — Psst: They’re having a big sale right now! — and this colorful, BPA-free cutting board is no exception. It’s made entirely from kitchen plastic scraps and renewable sugarcane, and is 100% dishwasher-safe. Plus, it’s available in five stunning colors, and 50% of all profits from the To Pó-Po with Love colorway goes to Heart of Dinner. The best part about the reBoard is the size: It’s large enough to tackle all kitchen tasks, but small enough to stow away where it won’t be noticed. However, it’s so cute (and comes in so many different colorways!) that you might want to display it — which is precisely why the hole in the corner is there to make hanging it in your kitchen from a hook a breeze. Our editors love this cutting board, too: Lauren Miyashiro wrote that “the reBoard is significantly easier on my knives and comes with a textured surface that makes it painless to slice through slippery foods. Although it’s lightweight, it’s also sturdy enough to handle chopping heavier ingredients, like a butternut squash.”

And, with a 4.8-star average rating from over 1,200 reviews on the site, it’s clear we’re not the only fans. “Love this board! I got two different colors, and if I had more room, I would get all of the colors,” one reviewer wrote. “These have replaced my two ratty boards that I didn’t realize were ready for replacement until I placed them next to these new beautiful boards. Colors are beautiful, and I cut up my weeks worth of veggies and fruit, then tried beets. The board cleaned up so nicely, no stains.” 

So take it from us — and the hundreds of happy reviewers — the reBoard is a no-brainer snag this Memorial Day, especially if you’re looking to upgrade your current cutting board or give a gift to the home chef in your life.
