Cutting Boards and Cutlery

At west elm, we know that being a great cook is more than just investing in excellent cookware. We offer all the tools you need to whip up delightful meals and clean up afterward so you can focus on enjoying meals with friends and family. Cutting tools make all the difference in regards to exertion and are some of the most versatile kitchen utensils to have on hand. Our cutting boards and cutlery make food prep a breeze whether you’re slicing tender strips of meat or mincing vegetables.


Start by choosing cutlery to fit your specific kitchen needs. If you’re just starting out, opt for a cutlery set that includes all the basics from steak knives to bread knives so you can tackle the most common techniques and recipes. If you are looking for specific knife sets, you’ll find what you need right here from carving knives to Japanese santoku knives. Choose between wooden and synthetic handles depending on your preference and opt for stainless-steel or carbon-steel knives for the perfect cut every single time. All of our cutlery features ergonomic handles that offer a solid grip so you can use your knives confidently without worrying about slippage, even if your hands are wet.


Whether you’re looking for an upgraded tool or outfitting your new kitchen with cookware, you’ll need cutting boards to serve up delightful meals. Select from a wide range of materials from marble to wood to suit your style and cooking needs. Some of our cutting boards feature a distinctive combination of both marble and wood in one beautiful piece. Use the wood surface to cut and slice and the marble surface to keep foods cool for several hours when serving. Mix and match cutting boards in various sizes and wood varieties to create an arsenal that ensures you have exactly the surface you need for every ingredient.


Keep your cooking space neat and organized with cleaning supplies that are ideal for cleaning up cutting boards and knives. Paper towel dispensers are useful in the kitchen for wiping up messes quickly and can be used to dry off cutlery and cutting boards as you use them. Opt for a drying mat that you can use to dry off knives and cutting boards. You can also choose a dish drying rack for extra space and vertical drying as needed.


Use kitchen towels to dry off knives after rinsing them off when you are done using them. Tea towels are useful for wiping off the surface of cutting boards when cutting a variety of ingredients without losing much time washing and drying the boards constantly. Opt for a standing paper towel dispenser that you can set directly on the kitchen counter and move it around as you need it. If you have a smaller kitchen, choose a wall mount paper towel dispenser to keep counter space clear so you have more room to work.


Our cutlery sets pair well with countertop accessories that help keep your kitchen counter organized and tools accessible. Choose a knife block to store knives in specially designed slots for neat organization. You can also opt for countertop canisters to store knives and utensils so you can grab exactly what you need without having to dig through drawers. Our kitchen canisters can be paired with cutting boards to create a cohesive kitchen design fit for a cooking show set. Opt for marble canisters to complement your marble cutting board or mix it up with copper and ceramic canisters that add character. Wooden canisters and salt and pepper shakers pair well with wooden cutting boards so you can prepare the perfectly seasoned steak in no time.
