The Boos® Rustic-Edge Design cutting board is as close to nature as you can get and each piece has a unique story. Each board is kiln-dried, with rustic edges and slight variances that make each one a “one of a kind masterpiece”. You can even count the age-rings. Some of their boards will have more grain than others and some will have knotholes, and discolorations.

Now Let’s Talk about John Boos & Co. Board Maintenance
Now for caring for your John Boos Board is super easy as you can simply hand wash and dry the board as needed. You will also want to apply John Boos & Co Mystery Oil regularly (more often in dry climates and especially when the board is new), and I can say I probably use the Mystery Oil once a month or whenever the wood is looking a bit dry. I also highly recommend using the John Boos Board Cream to seal the wood surface after applying the Mystery Oil and you can simply get everything you need to care for your board in the John Boos & Co Cutting Board Care & Maintenance Set. This is worth the investment as it will ensure your boards are cared for and with proper care they can last a lifetime.
A new study also found that an application of the NSF listed Boos Block® Mystery Oil and Board Cream on Boos Boards created an antimicrobial, hydrophobic surface that decreased their surface bacteria to a ‘clean level’ in just three hours! I am loving this!

A Little History On John Boos Boards:
John Boos & Co., based in Effingham, IL is one of the oldest manufacturers of premium quality foodservice equipment and butcher blocks in the U.S.A. Boos has been in business continuously since 1887. It was in his Effingham, IL blacksmith shop that founder, Conrad Boos first invented what would become the original Boos Block®. Having harvested sycamore from local wooded areas, and processed it in his sawmill, Conrad brought it to his blacksmith shop for finishing. That first block of sycamore slab placed on three legs evolved with sheer purpose of a block to absorb the shock of this smith’s hammer against the anvil. It was the local butcher, who having seen and admired Conrad’s block, became impassioned about owning a block for his meat market. Unknowingly, Conrad’s son, John, who having made and sold that first block to the local butcher, took John Boos & Co. into the infancy of the 125 year reign of serving customers in the commercial market sector.
