Even though Thanksgiving might look a little different this year, there’s still a holiday meal to be prepared in the coming weeks. Whether your main course is traditional turkey, honey-bourbon-glazed ham, or prime rib roast, you’ll need something to carve it on. Luckily, we found a cleverly designed cutting board that’ll change the way you prepare and serve Thanksgiving dinner—and it happens to be $20 off.

With a near-perfect rating from Amazon shoppers, the Bambusi Bamboo Carving Board is worthy of your attention because of two extremely useful features: juice grooves and ridges. They’re there to catch meat juices, which reduces kitchen countertop cleanup, and provide stability for fuss-free carving. “The bumps held prime rib in place for carving, and it collected all of the juices without making a mess,” a satisfied customer confirmed.

You’ll find both features on one side of the chopping block, while the other is completely flat, ideal for a charcuterie board, or just plain old everyday use. While the bamboo board usually goes for a reasonable $70, you can get it ahead of Thanksgiving for just $50 right now.

Because of its size (17 inches by 13 inches) and weight (7.4 pounds), the carving board can easily hold whole birds and heavy roasts. Additionally, many five-star reviewers note that it’s easy to clean, very durable, and attractive for entertaining.

Since gift-giving season is just around the corner, it can also be a thoughtful present for a meat lover in your life. One shopper wrote, “I bought this for my 'super-griller' brother and he loved it,” while another customer said, “I liked it so much and received so many compliments on it that I purchased another as a gift for a good friend.”

Seeing as it’s $20 off right now, it’s a no-brainer to pick up at least one for yourself. Add the bamboo cutting board you need for Thanksgiving to your cart before the price jumps back up.
