With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing many of us to stay home more often than not, interest in learning a new skill via online classes is at an all-time high. Specifically, cooking classes have boomed in popularity as the kitchen is one of the few escapes that people can readily use. In that vein, a startup company named BLOK has developed an all-in-one tool to help you learn how to cook while you prep your food.
The BLOK device is a smart cutting board that’s embedded with a removable, waterproof, and scratch-resistant digital display where you can watch expert-led cooking classes while you prepare your food. Additionally, you can reference recipes on the digital display while you prep your ingredients, eliminating the need to shift your attention back and forth from your laptop to your cutting board. The BLOK smart cutting board is made of a durable, high-quality walnut wood that can hold up against all of the rigors of cooking. Moreover, its cutting-edge polished aluminum docking station includes speakers to allow users to follow along with BLOK’s proprietary cooking classes after they’re done prepping their food. With a sleek design and wireless charging, the BLOK works well as a contemporary statement piece in the kitchen even when it’s not being used. Though BLOK’s smart cutting board is certainly the main attraction, its future app can’t be overlooked. Gone are the days where having an empty fridge was an obstacle for cooking, as the future app enables users to purchase groceries and get them delivered. It also controls all of the digital components of the BLOK’s smart cutting board for a seamless user experience.
Regardless of whether you’re a novice home cook or a seasoned chef, BLOK makes prepping food and learning new recipes simple and easy. BLOK has an estimated release date of April 2022, but you can back its Kickstarter’s Super Early Bird tier for $299 to reserve yours until then.
