My cousins purchased this for me last Christmas. It is really neat. Not only is it compact, but is attractive enough to leave out on the counter. There is a different colored cutting board for raw meat, cooked food, seafood, and produce. It’s a great way to avoid cross contamination. I know this is thinking ahead, but I am thinking of purchasing some for Christmas gifts for my friends that love to cook. You can purchase them at Gourmet cooking stores such as Sur La Table, but I found them priced for under $40 on amazon.com!
