Food prep isn’t always easy — especially in a small space.
Many of us love cooking, but not all of us enjoy the prep and clean-up that comes along with it. It takes a lot of planning and organization to keep your kitchen, your ingredients, and sometimes yourself from turning into a complete mess.
Designed with you and your small space in mind, our butcher block prep station is the perfect place to chop, organize and stay tidy — so you can put love and patience into every meal you create.
Inspired by classic, timeless butcher blocks of the past, our butcher block prep station is reinvented with a modern edge — and a practical twist. Butchering meat was once a common household task, but most households today don’t need to butcher a pig in their home kitchen. Regardless of whether you are carnivore, veg, or somewhere in between, what you likely do on a daily basis is prepare produce.
Trimming asparagus, slicing an onion, or opening up a fresh pineapple are repetitive kitchen tasks that leave you with two things — edibles and compostables. This is where the symmetrical slide-outs of this piece come into play.
Reach under the block and pull open a slide-out on each side. Place your bowls (or compost bucket) on the slide-outs, nestled against the block — one for fresh ingredients, the other for compost. Your knife separates the produce. Then, with a simple flick of your wrist, the flat of the blade follows through, guiding each cut into its appropriate bowl.
Thick and impressively solid, the energy of each cut is gently absorbed by centuries-old heart pine end grain. Wipe the block and re-use, without the hassle of multiple cutting boards cluttering your sink.
It’s not your grandma’s butcher block. But if you love to cook, you’ll find yourself equally enjoying the prep and clean-up process with this piece in your contemporary kitchen.
Like all of our furniture, this piece is customizable — from wood species, to dimensions, to that powder-coated pop of color! Purchase yours today in our store.
