The ChopBox Smart Cutting Board Has a Food Scale, Timer, and Knife Sharper Built Right Into It

When it comes to furnishing your kitchen with all of the appliances necessary to cook night in and night out, you’ll probably find yourself running out of counter space in a hurry. The ChopBox, which is available on Indiegogo and dubs itself “The World’s First Smart Cutting Board,” looks to fix that by cramming a bunch of kitchen necessities right into one cutting board.

In addition to giving you a knife-resistant bamboo surface to slice and dice on, the ChopBox features a built-in digital scale that weighs up to 6.6 pounds of food, a nine-hour kitchen timer, and two knife sharpeners. It also sports a groove on its surface to catch any liquid runoff that may be produced by the food and has a second pull-out cutting board that doubles as a serving tray.

There’s a 254nm UVC light featured on the board, which the company says “is guaranteed to kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria" after a minute of exposure. If you’re more of a traditionalist when it comes to cleanliness, the ChopBox is completely waterproof (but not dishwasher-safe) so you can wash and scrub to your heart’s content without worry. 

According to the company, a single one-hour charge will give you 30 days of battery life, and can be recharged through a Micro USB port.

The ChopBox reached its $10,000 crowdfunding goal just 10 minutes after launching its campaign, but you can still contribute at different tiers. Once it’s officially released, the ChopBox will retail for $200, but you can get one for $100 if you pledge now. You can purchase the ChopBox on Indiegogo here.

Having a designated workspace in your home office is necessary for maintaining focus throughout the day, but if you really want to stay razor-sharp, you'll need a dependable cup of coffee by your side. With Stanley's line of insulated mugs, you can keep your coffee—hot or iced—at the ideal temperature all throughout the workday, so you won't have to soldier through another sip of a lukewarm disappointment.

The line is highlighted by Stanley's 24-ounce Go Tumbler ($26), which has a splash-proof lid that can help prevent unfortunate spills wherever you happen to be working. Made with stainless steel and double-wall vacuum insulation, this tumbler is built to keep your coffee hot for up to six hours or cold for up to 40 hours.

The Classic Trigger-Action Mug ($23) has a push-button lid that’s easy to open. Like the Go Tumbler, it has double-wall vacuum insulation that keeps beverages hot for up to seven hours or ice-cold for up to 30 hours.

Stanley also offers the Master Unbreakable Trigger-Action Mug ($50), which boasts similar insulation and is made with the thickest stainless steel currently on the market, according to the company. All three models are safe to go in the dishwasher, so you'll have one less thing in your kitchen to worry about.

Now that you have the perfect mug, make sure you’re filling it with a great cup of coffee. Here are 11 tips on how to brew better coffee at home.
