The Catch Board is a bamboo cutting board with a slot at one end that's meant to hold various containers and strainers and thereby help you organize your food. Each one comes with two strainers and three containers with snap-on vented lids. If you position this cutting board on your countertop with the slotted end hanging over the side (or over your sink), the idea is that it'll save you space while helping you sort food items.
The cost of Catch Board is $49.99 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Catch Board at the discounted price of only $4.99 for a total price of $59.97.
To start using your Catch Board, place it on a flat surface. You'll likely find that your countertop is the best place to use this board, but you can also use it on a tabletop. Make sure the solid part of the board is resting securely on the surface of your choice, but position the board so that the slotted end is hanging off that surface. As alluded to above, it could be hanging off your counter and into open space, or hanging over your sink.
Next, based on the types of food that you want to prepare, add various containers and strainers to the empty slot of your board. You could add one large container first, and then place two small ones inside, or place one small container and one strainer in the large container instead. The possibilities are many, as long as you can fit your chosen pieces of kitchenware into the empty slot.
After you've selected the containers and strainers you want to use, and have added them to your board, you can begin cutting up food with your chosen knife on the solid part of your board. As you cut certain food items, you'll be able to add each one to a container at the side to separate it from other items, or add it to a strainer for straining purposes. While you shouldn't be afraid to fully fill each container or strainer, you should avoid filling it so full that it's overflowing.
When you're done working with the fruits, vegetables, or other food items that you've sliced up on your board, you'll be able to serve them as-is, add them to larger dishes, or store them away. If they're already in containers, you can simply snap on the vented lids, but if they're not, transferring them to the included containers may be a good idea, if those containers are clean. Any stray pieces of food can be brushed off the Catch Board, and you can quickly rinse the board with cold water.
Each attractive tan-colored cutting board is made out of bamboo, which is considered to be an eco-friendly material. It's also a naturally anti-bacterial material, so it's unlikely that bacteria will remain on the surface of your board for very long. Plus, when you use any type of kitchen knife on this bamboo cutting board, the bamboo surface won't quickly cause your knife to become dull.
The Catch Board is lightweight, as each one weighs only four pounds, but each one will actually hold nine pounds of food without tipping over. This includes the food that you've placed in any containers or strainers that are resting within the rectangular-shaped slot on one side of your board.
The three containers included with each of these boards are made of food-grade silicone that's free of the potentially harmful chemical compound known as BPA, which is still found in some kitchenware products today. They're also microwave-safe, which means you'll be able to use them to heat up various types of food in your microwave oven, and they're freezer-safe, too. To keep food tasting fresh, though, remember to always add a suitable vented lid when you use one of these containers to store some food in your freezer.
When you're not using the containers and strainers that have come with your board, they won't take up a lot of space, due to the fact that all of them are collapsible. If you get rid of some old containers or strainers that aren't collapsible in nature and replace them with these ones, you may find that you have much more room in your kitchen cabinets.
With an ordinary cutting board, you might find that if you try to prepare a variety of food items on it at once, the foods get mixed together and the flavors do, too. However, using the Catch Board will help you avoid this problem, as you'll be able to shuffle off certain types of food into containers at the side, and keep them away from the others. As a result, you won't find that your fruit salad tastes like jalapeno peppers, or that your lettuce salad tastes like fruit.
For optimum results, if you're using a traditional strainer to strain pasta, vegetables, or any other type of food, you'll need to hold it over your sink as you add water to it. On the other hand, if you position your Catch Board's strainer(s) over your sink to start with, you'll be able to turn on your tap and strain your food without hanging onto any strainers. This will leave your hands free to complete other food-related tasks in the same area, such as sorting and slicing.
Typically, after using your Catch Board, you'll be able to brush any stray food shavings into a trash receptacle and rinse off the cutting surface with cold water. If the board ever gets incredibly dirty, however, you may be disappointed to find out that you won't be able to safely wash it in your dishwasher. Instead, you'll need to quickly scrub it with soap and cold water for just a few minutes, as a bamboo board shouldn't be wet for any longer than that.
The containers (and strainers) that come with each board will fit properly into its slot, but if you want to add containers or strainers that you already own to it, they may not fit nicely. Even if they're fairly small, if they're not the same shape as the included containers, you may not be able to get more than one into the slot at once.
If you don't have a cutting board like this one, you might find yourself washing your board after you cut each food item that's part of your meal, in order to stop flavors from mixing. This may be especially true if you have a board with an incredibly small surface. Fortunately, the Catch Board provides a large cutting surface that different foods can be spread out on, to avoid mixing, and certain foods can be moved into containers and out of the way. Therefore, you won't have to spend valuable minutes washing the board each time you need to slice up a different type of food.
