5.0 out of 5 stars Kitchen origami, 3 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Joseph Joseph Chop 2 Pot Plus, Folding Chopping Board, Small - Pink (Kitchen & Home)
I have owned one of these great chopping boards for a couple of years and have just bought another as a gift and one to replace my original -finally wearing out after very heavy use (cracking along the hinged areas of the handle).

Joseph Joseph design combines good looks, funky colours, and functionality -and this product exemplifies its design principles. You can find cheaper chopping boards, but not one that's as much fun to use, or as functional. The folding aspect is very very handy for guiding chopped food into a pan or bowl. This board is the smaller of the two versions. I own the bigger one and find this smaller size more useful -it's just more handy and lighter to pick up and use.

I'm a fan of Joseph Joseph products, which, though a bit pricier than competitors, offer an edge in terms of fun and functionality that make the extra cost worthwhile.

Highly recommended

UPDATE January 2014

I have to add a negative to this review. The board I bought to replace the original had a problem -the main board leaves never sat completely flat. There was a stiffness in the hinged parts which prevented it. I waited to see if it would settle with us -it didn't. This was a major pain when chopping, as the surface never went flat. I wrestled with the board to flatten it, and broke the handle part off. It works better now, even without the handle, but I went back to using my nearly worn-out board till it fell apart. I inspected some of these in a kitchen shop and found all the boards as stiff.

I now feel sufficiently unconfident in these boards not to buy any mail-order again -I'd only buy one if I could inspect it and check there is no stiffness in the hinges.
