Orvis Swiss Cheese Board
People love cheese, but a lot of cheese boards never get used because they're simply too big, too clunky, or too heavy to store in a prominent kitchen spot. Sadly, some of the best cheese boards don't even make it to the kitchen at all—they end up stuffed into closets, pantries, and garages. This model is compact, adorably designed (like real cheese!), and slides open to feature everything you need to host a proper cheese and wine night.

Skipping the expensive, never-used bread machine is a good idea, but skipping the bread altogether? Heartbreaking. Opt for easy-to-use baking molds like this challah version that requires little more expertise than sourcing ingredients and a little bit of kneading. No need to do intricate braiding since the mold preshapes the dough for you and leaves you with a perfectly nonsticky outcome that's great for dinners, sandwiches, and Sunday brunches.
