It really depends on how often it's used though, doesn't it SophieS?

Frankly I bought mine mostly to 'swank it up' a bit occasionally with visitors.

I mainly use the big old royal blue square of polypro and anyway don't do that much chopping no how.

I might treat myself to another chop2pot for Xmas though and alternate them, which would make them last longer.

I might go for the pink one as a nice contrast to the black and in memory of my old pair of pink peg slacks.

Ah SophieS, the good people of Morleys of Brixton are way ahead of you.

I noticed today that their Le Creuset range now includes a ridged rubber disc, specifically for the purpose of preventing a chopping board from getting away from a chopper. And for only huit quid an' all.

It doesn't actually say on the label, "An end to chopping board slippage misery", but it should.

They're definitely new since last Tuesday and I reckon arrived alongside the LC oven gloves. A snip at ?13.75.

And that's for a joined pair!!

Well I did buy it in Brixton...

I laugh with sneering contempt at these poseurs who appear to possess only the one chopping "board". In my own batterie de cuisine I naturally have a selection: one for raw meat, 1 for vegetables, 1 for spare, 1 to lend out to passing Royalty, and so on and so forth.. These are mostly of wood and not any of these new-fangled plastics.


I blame TV "chefs"

But are they folding SimonM? I bet you end up dropping stuff all over the floor as the chopped victuals are tranported from work surface to pot.

Obviously they can be retreived from the floor, but if one has had a couple of glasses of the good stuff this can lead to staggerage and possible head injury. Also if a fellow is to keep salvaging food from the floor he'd have to attend to its hygiene more often than rthan once every four or five weeks, and it does so eat into one's time.

So I give you the chop2pot, "An indirect end to floor washing misery".


And as for wood SimonM, I'd shun it because of the rain forests and all that. Plastics the future round these parts.

    • Appreciate this would be more work for Admin/Mods, but would it be worthwhile to keep a master list / pinned post of SE22 clubs and societies?  Maybe there already is one somewhere online...

    • Hi everyone, does anyone have any large plastic boxes they do not need?  The type used for packing items when moving house?   I am moving soon and just wondered whether anyone has any that they want to get rid of ....... many thanks, Annie 
    • The Kirkdale place is now rebranded as Dulwich Reclamation.  From casual observation more and more people are chucking out Victorian Edwardian and 30s doors as they are referbishing their properties.  Less interest in period features now.  They are often in good condition but once in the skip will get quickly battered.   If they are stripped in caustic soda that can warp them.  There are far less strippers (!) than last millennium and you can no longer get the non caustic alternative spice the pesky EU banned methylene dichloride just because some people aphixiated when using industrial quantities
