Add a handsome yet highly functional tool to your kitchen arsenal with this solid, reversible Boos Block maple wood cutting board from John Boos, which measures 20 by 15 by 1-1/2 inches (LxWxH). Strong and heavy, this finely crafted board is built to endure all of your chopping, mincing, and dicing needs. This board has a hard maple edge-grain construction with two flat sides and slightly rounded edges for comfortable handling. It features handgrips on the ends for easy transport from countertop to stovetop and a Boos Block cream finish with beeswax. The thick board will hold large cuts of meat, piles of vegetables and ample size turkeys. Keep your Boos cutting board clean by simply washing it with hot soapy water after each use and dry it with a clean paper towel or let it air dry.
This board was shipped from the factory with a penetrating oil finish which allows for great cutting, chopping, and slicing, but it’s important to give your cutting board a good oiling on all surfaces every 3-4 weeks. When the cutting board becomes dry and lighter in color, you know that the time has come to re-oil your board. With a minimum amount of care and maintenance, you can lengthen the life of your Boos Board by many years.
More appealing and attractive than a plastic, a wooden cutting board is a great alternative to plastic cutting boards as it can inhibit bacteria growth, while plastic boards harbor bacteria in the grooves cut into their surface. (Although Boos Block cutting boards do not harbor bacteria, it is a good habit to use separate cutting boards for different types of food prep.) Wood cutting boards are also easier on knives, where plastic boards can dull knives quickly. Boos Block cutting boards are manufactured by John Boos & Co. in Effingham, Illinois, which has been manufacturing high-quality wood cutting boards, butcher blocks, and countertops since 1887.
