Boos Block Cutting Board Review & Giveaway

If you are as big of a fan of the Food Network as I am, I am sure that you have seen the beautiful kitchen staple called the Boos Block Cutting Board.  If you have not yet noticed it, pay attention the next time you see someone cooking on TV, because 9 times out of 10 you will see the famous Boos Block logo on the side of their cutting board (like you can see in the photo below).  After the Dr Oz Show aired a segment about the importance of replacing old cutting boards (click here to read the recap if you missed it: Cutting Board Dangers), a bunch of you contacted me to ask for advice on new cutting boards.  So, I went on a mission to find the best cutting boards for my readers.  While on my quest, not only did I get the opportunity to review two stunning Boos Blocks, but Boos Block also offered to give one of their high-end cutting boards to one of my readers too!

Boos Block Stainless Steel Feet

Boos Block Maple & Stainless Steel Feet Review:

The first Boos Block Cutting Board I reviewed is the one pictured above (and this is also the one that is available in our give-away – read on for additional details).  The model number is MPL1812175-SSF and it is a phenomenal hard rock maple cutting board with a juice groove around the edge and the perfect, modern, globe-like, stainless steel feet.  This John Boos Cutting Board With Stainless Steel Feet retails for $148.95.  Why such a high price tag?  Because you are getting an extremely high-end cutting board that is of superior quality to most cutting boards.  We are not talking about your 1/4″ thick wood cutting board that will get sliced and destroyed by your knife in a matter of weeks.  The  Boos Block Cutting Board With Stainless Steel Feet is a whopping 1 3/4″ thick, 18 inches wide and 12 inches deep – this is the furthest thing from a light weight, flimsy kitchen tool we are talking about!

Boos Block Juice Groove Review

As you can see in the photo above, the juice groove on the Boos Block Cutting Board With Stainless Steel Feet is not just a tiny indentation that does not really serve a purpose (as is the case with so many other cutting boards).  This juice groove is as thick as two of my fingers.  I was able to cut an entire watermelon without getting juice all over my counter – and that is a difficult task since watermelons always equal a messy, sticky counter-top with just about any other cutting board!  The Boos Block Cutting Board With Stainless Steel Feet is so gorgeous that you can make an impressive display with a few types of cheese and a handful of grapes at the spur of the moment – like when your in-laws make a surprise visit and you have nothing prepared!

Boos Block Reversible Maple Cutting Board Review

Boos Block Used on Food TV

The second cutting board that I reviewed is the R02 or the John Boos Commercial Maple Cutting Board, which is a real work-horse of a cutting board.  This cutting board is what I now use for my serious cooking jobs where I need a lot of cutting board space.  As you can see in the photo above, you can place a ton of apples, pears, and tangerines next to each other on the  Boos Block Maple Cutting Board, which is 24″ by 18″ by 1 1/2″ thick.  Carving a huge turkey? Chopping up tons of veggies for a stir-fry for a big group?  Or making a large fruit salad to take to your friend’s pot-luck?  The Boos Block Maple Cutting Board can handle all of this!  I love that I do not have to chop up some of the ingredients and then dirty another bowl to clear up more space on my cutting board.

Boos Block Quality Review

John Boos Cutting Board Review:

In addition to looking great and providing me with a huge surface area to chop to my heart’s content, the quality of the Boos Block Cutting Boards really cannot be beat.  I have chopped everything you can possibly imagine on my Boos Block over the past month, and my husband keeps remarking on how it still looks practically new.  Another aspect that I love about using a wood cutting board is that your knives stay sharp for longer.  With how expensive good knives are, it pays to take good care of them.  Yes, you can certainly sharpen most knives (especially good quality knives), but you can only sharpen knives a certain number of times.  Plus, let’s be realistic, how many of us are using dull knives right now because we just cannot find the time to sharpen them?

The bottom line – Boos Block Cutting Boards are popular among professional chefs and on the Food Network for a reason!  Between its superb quality and the beautiful addition it makes to any kitchen counter-top, I think it is safe to say that I (and every person who has visited my kitchen since I got it) am in love with my Boos Block Cutting Boards!

      I would love to have the Boos Block Cutting Board because when i reviewed the pictures and read the coments the board is just what I need and it’s very stable on whereever you put it, I also like the size and color. I would indeed be happy to have oneMI

  1. Alex H says

    Looks awesome. I’m in need of a new cutting board – big time. The one I have is plastic, scarred and nearing the end of the line.

  2. Cindi says

    What a fabulous prize giveaway! I am glad to have found their products…
    One of my favorites is their “Maple Chop-N-Slice – Reversible” Cutting Board.
    Many thanks, Cindi

  3. DebbyM says

    I love a couple of things. First of all that they have been manufacturing products in the USA since 1887 and that that their FSC certified lumber is derived only from forests that are properly managed according to the highest social, environmental and economic standards.

    Thanks.

    i like how he has his designs on the front page and they fade in and out and show more—-keeps you watching

    i already subscribe, but this sounds like a great board, a bit pricey though. my favorite item was the tuscan isle, it would look great in my kitchen!

  6. Katie Walker says

    I love that not only is everything such good quality, but it actually looks like it’s good quality too.

  7. Karen Dorris says

    Since we are planning to remodel……………I really love the American Cherry Butcher Block

    I’d love the maple au jus board. I’ve wanted a boos board since I first saw their butcher blocks a few years ago.

  9. Julie B says

    I love all their boards, but those butcher Blocks are so beautiful, they would be a showpiece in anyone’s kitchen.

  10. says

    I love the RN-LR” Le Rustica with Shelf, and I love the Eliptical C-Table, but something that is really great is that these products are MADE IN THE USA! I love that. I want to promote that, we have really gotten away from those great qualities. It was hard to pick something from this site because everything was so wonderful! Awesome givieaway!

  11. becky shanks says

    We had boos block table tops at culinary school and it’s sooooo great to be able to do all your chopping right on your work surface. One day when I have a house and the means to redo my kitchen….there will be a large boos block countertop!

  12. Jenn M says

    My husband loves to barbeque and eat meat, so I think I’d have to say that the deluxe bbq board gift pack would be a favorite.

    I love this item so much but then I get pretty worked up about most new things for a kitchen.

    “RN-LB” Le Bloc

    10″ Deep End Grain Cherry
    Face And Sides Standard w/ Boos Block Cream Finish w/ Beeswax
    Stands 34″ High
    L-4 Legs (Pencil) Standard

    I am hungry for Boo’s Boards and have been for a long time. I adore that they are FSC certified and renew the trees, love that they are AMERICAN and have been a great American company for years and helped the war efforts in WWII. I adore the new designs with removable drip pans (so much easier to disinfect) and the pyramid blocks to hold the meat in place. I ooh and ahh over the boards on the Food Network all the time. Looking at them puts me in a daze. Love, love, love Boo’s Boards!

  15. Laura L. says

    Also, I signed up for your email and would like to win the Boo’s Board. See my post above please. Laura

    John Boos & Co is firmly committed to managing environmental matters as an integral part of our business practice. I like this about the company.

  17. says

    I liked that when clicking on a link you didn’t go to a new page but it just displayed the info right away. Easy to navigate through.

  18. Cathy says

    I really love the “RN-BF” Bloc de Foyer – that would look fabulous in my kitchen. Thank you for the giveaway!

  19. says

    I’d like to try the Maple Chop n Slice. It looks really nice and would match my kitchen.

    I’ve seen Boos boards recommended in Saveur magazine several times. My own wooden chopping board (not a Boos) is covered in scratches and I’ve noticed that my new knife set practically slices through the board as well! It may be time to invest in a Boos and the fact that they are environmentally friendly is an added bonus.

  21. Cecily says

    I like the Maple Chop N slice-Reversible. They look so nice!

    Wow, this is an amazing prize! I love to cook and this would be such a wonderful tool to have. I went to the website and the only thing better than having one of these boards would be having their countertops! Very cool, thanks for the chance to win. Andrea

    I loved this website! Everything was laid out so I didn’t have to hunt for what I was looking for, which seems like no big deal but I can’t tell you how many sites are terrible about that! I also LOVE these boards. Oh my gosh I have decided that I must have one someday!

  36. says

    The website was easy to navigate but more importantly warm in it’s authenticity to its product’s quality. The history of the wood showed the product’s value. I love wood and the thought of a using a Boos cutting board is just what I could use.

    Thank You

    I had a 4 in 36×36 cutting board by boozing my kitchen that I custom built! It was the BEST item I had in my home! All my sisters want one now and now I have to move due to job changes! Need one in the next house! Wouldn’t move in with out a plan to where the boos board. Would go in the new house!

  40. Jean says

    I love the new Newton Prep Master Board with prep tray – such a great design. I have a Boos chopping block table and it is a beautiful piece of furniture.
