If you have a kitchen surface that is not so nice and polished anymore, or if you have a kitchen surface too nice to be ruined then a JosephJoseph glass worktop saver may be what you need. It’s a tempered glass surface that will resist knife cuts and heat up to 280°C, doesn’t absorb smell and is dishwasher safe. These worktop savers come in different shapes: square, circular and rectangular. Most of them have a very bright modern look, but they have now come up with some floral designs for the more traditional kitchen.
You can use it as a chopping board while cooking, then bring it to the dinner table for hot pots… or use it as a cheese board at parties! They are quite versatile, and you don’t even have to find a place for them — they look so nice they can remain on that counter that needs protection!
You can buy them on Amazon; both US and UK sites sell a selection of worktop savers.-Michela
