We can't claim such an extensive knowledge of the cutting board market to confirm whether The Ultimate Cutting Board lives up to its name or not, but there's no doubt it packs a lot of features that aren't found in the traditional wooden chopping boards sitting on most kitchen benchtops.
The Ultimate Cutting Board is the brainchild of Michael Motamedi, a former contestant on Masterchef Canada and current owner of Parcae, a restaurant in Toronto. Motamedi and his partner Team Baffi have produced a traditional wooden chopping board that incorporates several useful features into its body.

These features include a detachable serving platter, a mandoline slicer/cheese grater, a removable juicer, measuring cups, a storage drawer for knives, and a disposal drawer for scraps. The board itself is made from maple wood, and measures in at 21 in (53.3 cm) long x 16 in (40.6 cm) wide x 1.75 in (4.4 cm) high.
Production of The Ultimate Cutting Board is currently being funded through a Kickstarter campaign, which has already reached its target of CAD$50,000 (US$35,000). A pledge of CAD$165 (US$116) is enough to secure one if and when the creators deliver on their promises.
The Ultimate Cutting Board is available to ship anywhere in the world, but anyone outside the US and Canada will have to pay extra for the privilege. The first orders are expected to ship in April 2016.
The board's features are demonstrated in the video below.
