BODUM’s colorful new knife holder is no chip off the old knife block

by Terry B on July 20, 2011

The unboring, unblocky BODUM Bistro Universal Knife Block is the subject of my latest USA Character Approved Blog post.

One of the biggest problems in most kitchens is storage. More precisely, the lack of enough of it. For many home cooks, storing knives is one of the toughest challenges. You need them readily available when you’re cooking, but you also need them some place safe—both for you and the blades.

For years, wooden knife blocks have been the answer. The chunky, counter space-gobbling answer. And if you’ve built your knife collection one carefully chosen knife at a time (the best way to do it, by the way), chances are the knife block’s pre-cut slots won’t perfectly accommodate your collection. Enter BODUM’s Bistro Universal Knife Block.

The Bistro Knife Block is designed to hold up to a dozen knives safely upright in any configuration and in a very small countertop footprint. And it’s just one of the ways BODUM is rethinking the kitchen, with friendly, functional, contemporary small appliances, cookware, serveware and storage ideas. To find out more about the stylish Bistro Knife Block—definitely no chip off the old knife block—check out my latest post on the USA Character Approved Blog.

I swear by a magnetic strip on the wall by Rosle. It’s 50 cm long, holds a dozen knives, and shows no sign of coming off the wall — unlike a Haenkel’s strip.

We’re huge fans of magnetic knife strips too, John, but our current kitchen with its tile walls won’t accommodate one.
