The Story of the John Boos Butcher Block

John Boos & Co. has been a respected producer of food service equipment since the late 1800s. Their famous butcher block cutting boards were originally designed to be used by blacksmiths to absorb the shock of their hammer against the anvil. But a local butcher requested one for his meat market, and the rest is history. John Boos butcher block cutting boards became highly respected for their exceptional quality and long-lasting durability, making them a favorite among amateur and pro chefs alike.

Boos Block Features

Many John Boos cutting boards look simply like a block of wood, but every feature is designed to make the cutting process as efficient and effective as possible. Most blocks can be reversed to preserve one side for meat to prevent cross contamination. You’ll also find handy kitchen tool features like grip handles, grooves to catch excess juices and even stainless steel pans for collecting scraps. Most importantly, Boos uses the best woods with exceptional durability and natural antibacterial properties to ensure superior performance for years to come.
