Unless a significant portion of your countertop is in fact a chopping board, you're likely to run out of room for your freshly diced foods before tossing them into the skillet. The Mocubo by Quirky is an ingenious solution to a common culinary conundrum, which provides a place to collect your cuttings and store them for the first step of your recipe.
It may look like a thick wooden cutting board, but the pale bamboo used in this slicing surface comprises a relatively thin panel with a deeper frame installed beneath. Slots are provided to accommodate three drawer-like dishes and one slide-out strainer into which you need simply scrape your hashed meat or vegetables. Each of these containers can be pulled right out out of the Mocubo by Quirky to afford easy rinsing and the convenient ingredient separation. It permits you to organize different foods and dump them into the pot separately according to instructions and required cooking times.
