Everyone has at least one cutting board in their kitchen, but if it’s not an edge or end grain piece of natural wood then it’s probably time for an upgrade. Here’s the thing with the cutting boards we’re all used to–they’re not as good as all of us originally thought. The creator of the iBlock, Nils Wessell, elaborates that while a plastic cutting board is pretty basic, when you cut into it you’re cutting both the board and your food. It dulls your knife and also leaves a groove in the board for bacteria. Dull knives? Bacteria? Neither of these sound good, but luckily that’s not an issues with Wessell’s iBlock wood butcher blocks. Each block is milled in Brooklyn with wood from Pennsylvania or Ohio and designed to last. Wessell also added a convenient tablet slot on both sides–yes, you can flip it over without washing–in case you need to reference a recipe from the web.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
