Calgary, AB -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/24/2014 -- A lot of cutting and slicing happens around and close to the sink. When people cut and slice, they often place the cutting board on the countertop beside the sink. Traditional flat cutting boards occupy significant amounts of counter space and leave a mess on the countertop when dealing with wet or juicy foods.
Now, there is an alternative. “Front of Sink” cutting board allows users to do the normal cutting chores without holding up the counter space beside their sink. Because its cutting platform is inclined towards the sink, excess liquid from wet or juicy foods can drip directly into the sink basin instead of collecting on the counter area, which happens when using flat cutting boards.
It does not occupy any useful counter space as it utilizes the area in front of the sink, and covers very little sink space, making the sink and tap accessible. Its unique stand up position allows the cutting surface to drip and dry quickly. It occupies very little counter space when it is stored in its vertical position.
The board stays close to your body while cutting, making it more ergonomic. The overhang at the front and back of the board allows you to sweep your food off the cutting board without having to lift it up.
“Front of Sink” cutting board has already gone through many rounds of prototyping. A low capacity production tool was ordered to verify the final design. The product from this tool works perfectly well and looks aesthetically pleasing.
The existing injection molding tool is not cost effective and not suitable for high volume production. The money raised will help the creators finalize tooling and packaging, and to pay for the first production run and ship the “Front of Sink” cutting board to all backers as soon as possible. The remaining funds will be re-invested in a high volume production injection molding tool.
This project will only be funded if at least$10,000 CAD is pledged by Mon, Mar 24 2014 12:11 PM +05:30.
