Such is the case with the Koku All in One Cutting Board I just received. I needed a cutting board since my old one is no longer sanitary. I wasn't looking for anything fancy, but while on Amazon I saw this one with a few extra features that seemed perfect for my needs - pull out measuring drawers on the sides, as well as a lip to catch juices, a raised surface I could rest on my lap that gave me additional height options, and - underneath the cutting board - a built in grater.
Here's why this cutting board is more accessible for me - whenever I manage to cut something up, it's difficult enough without having to figure out how to get the item off the board with limited dexterity. I can now scoop everything into the pull out side drawers - and measure the items as I go. Since the drawers are removable and much lighter than a cutting board, it's easier for me to figure out a way to empty the contents into my crock pot too, thus solving two problems at once.
I'm still experimenting with knives for quadriplegics which are very expensive, so I am starting with ones that might work which are less expensive. More on that later, but this Rachel Ray rocker knife is in the running.
This is the knife I really want to get eventually, made by quadtools and demonstrated by Chris in this video:
Ah yes grasshopper becoming one with my kitchen will take time!
