FLOW- A revolutionized perforated cutting board. Forever solving messy countertop cleanup and trapping juices for sauces and dressings.

Introducing FLOW- by SimpleWare- the world's first perforated cutting board

Why You Need A New Cutting Board

Cutting meats, fruits and vegetables can be messy! Our patented design allows the juices from meats, vegetables and fruits to FLOW through the cutting surface into a tray preventing the usual countertop mess. The juices can then be used to make sauces, gravy or dressing to enjoy with your meal.

The cutting surface is designed to snap into place on the tray creating a strong, stable cutting surface. The non skid rubber feet keep it secure on your countertop.

Easy Clean Up

FLOW has a streamlined, low-profile design that allows for easy cleanup and storage. The use of high-quality FDA approved cutting board material prevents the growth of bacteria and ensures durability, ease-of-use and dishwasher safe cleaning. We believe FLOW is the most versatile and unique cutting board available.

How Big Is FLOW

FLOW is 8 3/4" (22 cm) by 12 1/2" (32 cm) and the FLOW cutting board assembly with tray is 1 1/4" (3.2 cm) thick. It’s easy to store, use it in a sink or in a standard baking tray.

When Will I Get My FLOW

We have worked hard to ensure the first orders of FLOW to our Kickstarter backers will arrive early December. FLOW will arrive in time to cut your holiday turkey on. Give it as a gift to the chefs in your life; plus it makes the perfect hostess gift for all your holiday parties.

Meet The Inventors  

FLOW is the brain child of Peter Hauser and Ola Ahlmen. Peter was cutting a steak and getting the juices all over the kitchen counter. The frustrated chef switched gears to talented designer and thought, “How can I avoid this?” and the idea for the cutting board was born. Peter mentioned the idea to Ola, who has experience bringing products to market, and the team was formed!

Where The Money Goes

The Kickstarter funds will allow us to move into tooling for the production version (see below in all its glory), manufacturing the first run of 1000 and ultimately distribution into your hot little hands.

Above, you see the FLOW prototype hard at work!
