I've owned the Bobum Bistro knife block for a bit over a month now and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. I'm an accomplished home cook who owns a wide array of kitchen knives from a variety of quality manufacturers. I think of my knives as a woodcarver thinks of his chisels. Each has it's own purpose. Finding a way to properly store then all without taking up a lot of valuable real estate on my limited countertop has been a challenge. That is, until now.

The Bodum Bistro universal block not only accommodates knives of all sizes, it holds kitchen scissors, poultry shears, and sharpening steels as well, and any of them can sit anywhere in the block without worry of damage to finely honed blades, held securely by hundreds of fine plastic rods that make up the block's interior, all in a very compact 2.38" L x 8.5" W x 8.38" H. Two Bodum Bistro universal blocks hold all if my knives in an area smaller than an iPad. That in itself would make it worth buying, but it's stylish contemporary design in your choice of four colors is the icing on the cake.

Great design, versatility, and stylish looks in a compact footprint. It's everything I was looking for in a universal knife block.

Highly recommend. After having unlimited wall space to hang knife magnets, I went to NO wall space and limited counter space. I had considered getting a conventional knife block but my collection of knives is eclectic to say the least. I needed to consider a "universal" block - something that would accommodate a varied family (motley crew?) of knives and I was torn between the Bodum and the Kapoosh (which looks more conventional). The Cook's Illustrated review put me over and I purchased the Bodum. It holds more knives than you'd think and takes up almost NO counter space. The only caveat I can offer is to position it so the cook approaches it vertically (narrow side faces cook) and not horizontally (wide side faces cook). It CAN wobble/teeter if the cook is pulling a knife from a block that might be positioned under a cabinet, i.e. pulling a knife at a 45 degree angle. PS, it's best to DRY knives before inserting them into the block.

I like it a lot. Modern and convenient. However, it would be perfect if it was made by better material. I returned the first one I got. It was obviously returned by someone else. It is a defective one. Several pieces of plastics dropped off the box when I opened it.

The second one I received was obviously returned by someone else, too. Looks like people don't like it when they receive it. I keep the second one. I really like the design.

I have limited space. This knife block takes very little space and the colors brighten my work area. I also like that I don't have to fit a knife to a slot.

Product looks great on counter. Very nice way to store knives. I saw this at a friends house, then had to have it.

I have had this knife block for a couple years now. I have a nice selection of Cutco knives and I want to protect them since they are fairly expensive, but I don't like the large blocks that take up so much room on the counter. This is perfect. I just ordered one in black for my son for his new house.

This works great in a small space and it's colorful and fun. Like that the insert can go in the dishwasher
