The jury is out on the latest “life hack” put on trial by Twitter: a supposed method of making your food prep easier.
How is all of that supposed to fit into such a tiny hole? 😏

A daily newspaper in Edmonton, Canada, shared a controversial photo of a chopping board to its Twitter account. The picture shows somebody using the small hole in the board, which is technically just the handle, to funnel a diced vegetable into a bowl with ease. However, people aren’t buying it.
If I wanted to take a year to get my diced tomatoes into the bowl I wouldn’t use a cutting board handle to do it.

The idea behind YouTube lifehacks is to provide unusual (sometimes helpful) usage patterns for things.
By no means is this the correct or intended usage (most of the time).
Here the amount of work needed to get things through the handle is bigger than just avoiding spillage.

Only for fine dice imho

Everyone was skeptical of the so-called “life hack” since it appeared that incorporating it into your cooking routine would actually just make meal prepping more difficult. One person even insisted on finding the patent for the cutting board, which revealed the final results: the hole was, as the Internet suspected, just a handle.
