More Than a Board

If you’ve ever used a cutting board in the kitchen, you know that transferring your freshly chopped items from the board to the pan or bowl takes more precision than you might expect. Thanks to its unique yet simple folding technique, product Tank’s Boardbowl makes it easy to be accurate while also saving you time and energy! See it in action —>

    I appreciate lateral thinking but why do we have to complicate products. Is it really that difficult to use a simple cutting board?

  • chris says:

    Agreed, this took something easy and made it complex. Why?

    Joseph Joseph developed this a long time ago, http://www.josephjoseph.com/product/chop2pot-plus

  • Hi everyone, thank you for the comments as all opinions are welcome. The board is designed to make it easier to transport prepared food from work surface to pan for people with weak wrists and hands. Giving them a free hand to steady themselves. My hope is that this doesn’t make things more complicated, but better for some people. There is evidence that this is useful as Marty states a board that does similar is already available although I hope my version goes slightly further as you don’t need to keep gripping it for it to remain closed. The manufacture is still incredibly simple. I too see things that I wish designers left alone, I don’t know why we are obsessed with chairs for example, but it’s in our nature to keep trying to improve things, even if to some the benefit seems negligible. The real story behind this project is how one idea can lead to another, hopefully better idea. The end of the video alludes to my next project, a fold up wheel barrow. Please watch it if you can. PT

    Hi PT, how does this differ from the already successful Joseph Joseph Chop2Pot?
