At some point this holiday season, you’ll likely visit Trader Joe’s to pick up a few goodies. As you peruse the wine selection (it’s worth it) and get lost in the cheese aisle (it happens to the best of us), we suggest taking a second to look around—the pièce de résistance is hiding in a nearby basket. It has come to our attention that the grocery store just brought back its best-selling olive-wood board.

At just $13, it is a steal. Plus the sturdy surface, measuring 7 to 8 inches wide, can be used as anything from a chopping block to a charcuterie platter. One Trader Joe’s fan wrote that she’s had hers for a year and it still looks as good as new. To keep it in tip-top shape, rub the wood with mineral oil occasionally and hand-wash only.
