One of the most daunting things a fledgling home chef confronts is the idea of space and time management; what starts out as an innocent endeavor to cook dinner can end up a poorly-timed, inconvenient, everything-is-out-of-the-cupboards mess. At moments like these, beginners can do one of two things: Avoid cooking entirely, or figure out a way to streamline the process.

SousChef, a new five-in-one kitchen tool, assists just as much as its name alludes to without being an actual sentient human being. Designed to save space and make meal prep more efficient, the SousChef includes five integrated products that work both together and individually to make your next great meal simple to prepare.

First off, the cutting board itself is made with 100% Canadian maple, and is fully detachable from the scale for easy cleaning. The digital scale offers three units of measure (ounces, pounds, and grams or milliliters), and the scale piece doubles as a timer that can be set up to one hour and 45 minutes. The scale and timer are fully rechargeable with an included micro-USB cable, too. At the edge of the cutting board, you'll find a two-stage knife sharpener (perfect for refining your knife edge before chopping), and a slide-out stand that can be used for a tablet, phone, or recipe card.

With five tools intuitively designed into one small workstation, it's not difficult to imagine that the SousChef at Home could seriously change the game for novice cooks (and even those unorganized experts among us). Additionally, the product is actually useful to a broad range of home chefs, and is compact enough to store in tight spaces. It makes a great gift, either for yourself, or whoever you happen to be holiday shopping for— the maple cutting board is a welcome addition to any kitchen space. Shop the SousChef at Home now, and let the power of this compact but high-impact kitchen device change the way you chop.
