Put Our Tools to the Test
It's time to see what our tools are made of. As you know, each and every item we select to carry in The Chopping Block's retail stores has been tested by our culinary staff. Now, it's your turn.

Visit our stores in March to "test drive" our favorite graters from Microplanes to box graters and peelers from Rosle to the affordable workhorse Piranha Peeler. Whatever your job or budget, we have a chef-approved tool for you!

The best part is that all tools are 20% off in March. If you buy three tools, the savings jump to 25%.

See why Shelley loves our Rosle peelers in our latest video.

Why We Love Rosle Peelers

Our chefs certainly have their favorite tools as well. For instance, Chef Sara Salzinski can't live without her tongs.

"Don't underestimate the power of good tongs. They are an absolute essential tool you must have in your kitchen. And, not just any tongs. You want tongs that have a good solid grip so your hand wont slip and can lock to save space, like the OXO tongs we carry at The Chopping Block. Next to knives they are the most used tool in my kitchen because they are an extension of my hand. They jump in when the going gets rough allowing me to handle my food properly so I can achieve the best results. From turning steaks, to tossing salads and pastas, for all of your grilling needs, and for reaching that box of cereal on the top shelf, tongs will never let you down." ~Chef Sara Salzinski 


Spoiler alert: All of our chefs share their favorite products on our new website, which is getting close to launch. Stay tuned! Our loyal newsletter subscribers will be the first to have a sneak peak.

Our silicone lined fish spatula is extra thin and angled so it can get beneath the most delicate fish without causing it to flake. Plus, it's heat resistant up to 425 degrees.

This spatula would be perfect to use on the beautiful fish you can get from Hooked on Fish, a sustainable seafood delivery service in Chicago. This week's offerings include sustainable Skuna Bay Salmon, Cobia and Yellowtail Snapper. Both locations of The Chopping Block are pick-up locations for Hooked on Fish.

Eat, Preserve & Use Waste for a New Way of Cooking
The Kitchen Ecosystem is a new way of looking at the food you buy, prepare and discard. The secret to really tasty food is to make dishes with as many seasonal ingredients as possible, and eat them when they are fresh, preserving some for the off season, replacing the commercial products in your pantry with homemade ones, and using the byproducts like stocks, zests and juices to assist in the preparation, and bump up the flavor, of future dishes. Learn how to do all of that in our special class with Eugenia Bone, author of "The Kitchen Ecosystem."
