If you’re looking to recreate some of that restaurant magic at home, check out the just-released all-in-one professional prep station for the home cook. A kitchen perfectionist’s dream setup, it’s got everything needed to measure, prepare and store ingredients as you go, containing 45 different features and accessories in a compact case that’s pretty enough to be displayed on the kitchen counter when not in use.
It will keep you organized and tidy. Fold the cutting board out and you’ll reveal a brilliant modular system of containers for storing ingredients before they hit the pan. This includes large, medium and small plastic containers that can fit in the system or stand on its own, meant to hold everything from diced vegetables to pre-measured herbs and sauces.
It has a built-in spot for kitchen scraps. The secret to easier cleanup? Cleaning as you go. Meal Prep System integrated trash compartment serves as an easy way to sweep trimmings out of the way while you prep. When you’re gone, cleaning is as easy as sliding the compartment out.
It can juice, zest and . . . do a lot of other things. What you may not realize is the Meal Prep System is more than just a cutting board with prep containers. The system also includes an accessory drawer that slides out to show a whole host of useful kitchen tools, from a zester and slicer to a grater and a dedicated juicer. The tools are made to fit atop the containers, which makes prep even easier.
It holds your tablet or phone for easy recipe access. An add-on gadget stand makes referencing recipes effortless. Not following a recipe? You’ve got a makeshift TV stand now.
It disguises itself as a sleek modern kitchen accessory. Perhaps Meal Prep System’s greatest strength is that it’s aesthetically pleasing even when it’s not in use. While the cutting board is magnetic and easily removable, it also serves as the cover for the system.
