With thousands of recipes easily accessible online now many people are taking their iPad or tablet into the kitchen so they can easily follow the steps when cooking. The Victorinox Knife Block is a traditional knife block made from wood, holding up to 13 knives, with designated slots for a paring knife, a utility knife, a santoku, a chef’s knife, a slicer, a honing steel, kitchen shears and six steak knives.
While it looks like a normal knife block on one side, it turned around there is a ledge on the other designed to hold your tablet device while cooking. As you need to access both sides of the block there is a handy swiveling base which allows you to easily rotate the block round so it is easy to grab a kitchen knife when needed and rate it back round to the iPad so you know what to do.
Of course the ledge can also be used to rest your cook book on and doesn’t have to be just a tablet. The ledge is quite deep so it is ideal for most book large and small. There is a choice of dark or light wood for this making it easy to match the style of your kitchen.
The block itself measures 4.5 x 10.75 x 8.25 inches so it is quite large, and with the need for room to be able to rotate the block so you can accuse and use both sides it does take up quite a bit of worktop space. If you have a tight small kitchen where worktop space is a premium then this may not be for you, however if you have the space this ia a good stylish and useful gadget.
