This Always-Sold-Out Kitchen Tool Just Got a Revamp
Material is giving its best-seller a storage-friendly edge.

It’s rare that a simple kitchen tool reaches cult-following status almost immediately, but such is the story of Material’s reBoard. The cutting board sold out three days after going on the market last year, at one point boasting a 3,000-person-strong wait list. Now there’s a new model for eager shoppers to get their hands on. The Mini reBoard just launched this week, and we predict it’ll be as popular as its trendy older sibling.
Over the past few months, Material has seen requests flooding in for smart solutions to help manage at-home lifestyles. When it comes to the kitchen, this means low-maintenance, storage-friendly pieces that can be easily used for a number of cooking ventures—and for those who have recently reacquainted themselves with their tiny apartments, the board is especially convenient.
First of all, it requires less than an inch of horizontal cupboard space to tuck away. It’s dishwasher safe, so you won’t have to worry about unnecessary cleanup between homeschool activities and inbox upkeep. And if you’ve spent quarantine expanding your culinary repertoire, use this miniature option to prep all the ingredients for the virtual dinner party you’re hosting, or simply turn it into the base for a quick charcuterie lunch. After six hours on Zoom, a platter of assorted cheese absolutely qualifies as a meal.
