We can'tclaim 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 itpacks a lot of features that aren't found in the traditional wooden chopping boardssitting 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.

If they added a knife sharpener, I would be sold.

Clearly, the inventor doesn't know much about cooking. This is a product for the rich and famous who want to impress friends with their fancy kitchen gadgets. To properly clean this you will need to remove the grater/drawer and the measuring dishes. The grooves where the 2 pieces meet are an invitation to germs. As a former Chef, I speak from experience. Oh well, I guess he deserves to make a buck like anyone else. What a waste of good wood!

Agree with Jim, nice grim catcher especially in the split, will constantly get clogged/gummed up if you don't diligently take everything apart & clean every time you use it. A simple solid wood cutting board, with a flat side, and small perimeter groove on the flip side, that's all you need. Display your accessories/knives in their proper realm, in the kitchen work area not hidden inside a cutting board.

Cleaning and sanitation nightmare - horrible design.

Ignoring all the obvious problems already mentioned, if the grater was made to locate in the top of the 'bits' drawer, then the gratings would be contained within it, saving effort. However, maybe the same amount of cash invested in a food processor would be money better spent.
