Looking for the perfect cutting board or block can be as hard as looking for a house. You don’t want to have to buy one every year, you want one that will last for years. So when I heard about John Boos company, I really wanted to learn more. I contacted them and they sent me one to try out for my house. The reasons I like John Boos & Co. is because they are the leading manufacturer of many products, including cutting boards. Their products are also all made in the U.S.A. They has been around since 1887.I got a cutting board from the 2013 line. The cutting board is 2 ¼ inches thick and from corner to corner it measures 24 inches. The board is versatile because on one side you can find the juice groove which will help contain juices when you are cut veggies or meats. While the other side is just flat. Which is nice because you can use both sides of the board unlike the ones that have little feet on them. On the side of the board there are handles screwed into the board, they are firm and make carrying this 30lb+ board a lot easier. The board does come uncoated, which once you unwrap you will have to apply some the beeswax board cream that is provided. It was a simple process to do and once every few weeks it must be done to keep the life of the board longer and keep it from drying out, cracking or even splitting. Once you apply the cream the first time you will notice that the board just shines more and has a life of its own.My thoughts are–
The board is perfect for any kitchen lover. The handles make moving around and flipping over the board a lot easier. Also I love the deep groove in the juicer side since now instead of worrying about juice getting all over my counter I know it will get caught by the groove. I love that the cutting board doesn’t move when cutting on it due to the heaviness of it. This cutting board is over $100 in retail value but it completely worth it since this board with proper maintenance should last me my lifetime and longer.
