This is one of my favorite tools, because it is multipurpose. The cutting board fits nicely over the sink. I can wash and drain the vegetables or other items. Remove the strainer, put the vegetables on the board and cut. Easily discard the unwanted ends down the hole in the board directly into the garbage disposal. I even use the strainer to drain pasta. So not only is it a great cutting board, but the strainer can be used to drain pasta.
