|Eight Inch Chef's Knife, Five Small Potatoes|
The strainer is a pop-up kind - it becomes flat for storing the board on it's side (3/4 inch thick, like the board) and then it can "pop" out to different sizes depending on need. In the picture to the right it is extended all the way down - it is quite deep and can hold a lot of material.

The strainer is strong enough to hold up a stainless bowl, which is convenient when prepping a number of different vegies.
The board itself is nice - 3/4 inch thick, firm, no flex. Made of bamboo, it is very strong
The cutting area is a little small for me - I like a bigger work area for my cutting boards. Although as you can see, my eight inch chef's knife fits easily diagonally.
This is a great vegie processing tool. Silicone colander lets you wash, chop and go through a number of vegies. Also, being silicone, it can be tossed in the dishwasher, even cooked with as a steamer because heat will not degrade it.
I bought mine at Sears, but it is widely available between $29 and $49. I got mine on sale for $10 with free delivery - a great buy at that price. Not sure at $49 it would be worth it.
