Make your cutting board slip-proof


Chobs, which stands for Chop on Both Sides, is a set of silicone pads with stainless-steel springs that firmly attach to the corners of any cutting board up to an inch thick ($11.95 for a set of four). Designed in Australia, Chobs raise the board off the counter and prevent it from slipping. With the red and green circles firmly in place, you can turn the board over and use both sides without doing a mid-prep scrub (a must when working with raw poultry or meat). When it’s time to clean up, toss the Chobs in the dishwasher.  Available at Kitchen Outfitters, Acton Woods Plaza, 342 Great Road, Acton, 978-263-1955, or www
