Today’s gadget is simple and subtle, but it might just find a permanent home atop your counter. A modernized version of an average wooden knife block, the Bistro Knife Block made by Bodum is stylish and very practical.
The outside casing of the Bistro is made of hard plastic and inside are thin plastic sticks packed tightly together, resembling the bristles of a broom. The design allows you to place any size knife, anywhere, within the “block” itself. You can store your paring, chopping and chef’s knife all right next to each other.
It takes up only a small amount of space in the kitchen and it can hold a numerous amount of knives. My roommate got the Bistro Knife Block as a Christmas gift and its lived on our counter since.
Your knives will stay safe as well as clean and sharp, a much better option then storing them in a drawer. And you can remove the inside bristles from the shell to make sure you’re keeping it crumb-free. This gadget comes in several different colors including red, grey, lime green and orange, so it can suit any style!
Knives are an essential part to any cook’s kitchen, and an easy way to store them makes a huge difference in preparing your favorite meals. Available from bodum.com for $49.95 this helpful gadget is an awesome investment.
