5 Boos Block Cutting Boards You Need For Summer
This summer, take your favorite recipes to the next level, with the help of new kitchen tools from John Boos. Choosing the right Boos Block cutting board for your meal prep and entertaining plans will have you ready for grilling season in no time. Follow along to learn more about the five sustainable cutting boards you need this summer.
- The grilling barbecue board. For those who enjoy grilling and smoking meats low-and-slow, the Boos Block AUJUS Maple Wooden Cutting Board with Juice Groove is a must-have asset. This larger size has ample space for larger cuts of brisket, ribeye’s and pork butts, as well as barbecue pulled pork. The cutting board’s groove catches all the savory juices that are released when carving and pulling, leaving no mess. It also contains the flavors of your favorite barbecue sauces to prevent overflow. Flip the AUJUS board over for a fresh, flat surface to prep and season proteins with rubs or spices before they are cooked. John Boos recommends using one side of the board for raw meat and the other side for cooked meat, to prevent cross-contamination or use two separate cutting boards for raw meat and for cooked meat. This series is also available in black American walnut wood species.
Pro tip: Hand wash wood cutting boards with mild soap and water and immediately dry with a clean towel. Stand the cutting board on its end against your backsplash to air dry completely. Once it is dry, store flat.
- The all-purpose cutting board. If you regularly find yourself cooking and have ample counter space, our most popular Hard Rock Maple R02 cutting board is for you. A highly sought-after cutting board by professional chefs, this can be used for food preparation, for serving situations and as a grazing board. This wooden cutting board has recessed finger grips and is reversible so one side can be utilized for protein and the other side for fruits or vegetables to avoid cross-contamination and is NSF Certified. This series is also available in black American walnut & American cherry wood species.
Pro Tip: National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), a public health and safety organization, has independently tested and approved this Maple cutting board.
- The cutting board for juicy fruits and vegetables. As Summer approaches, our yearnings for water-rich foods intensify – watermelon, cantaloupe, peaches, oranges, strawberries, and tomatoes – all brimming with juicy goodness that helps keep us refreshed. Nevertheless, not every cutting board can handle the challenge of dealing with these high-moisture foods. That’s where our Prestige Maple Wooden Cutting Board is the perfect companion for these delightful, hydrating treats. Equipped with a practical juice groove, this cutting board effortlessly tackles watermelons, ensuring a spotless countertop while you let the cutting board do the work. Preparing your 5-minute watermelon, feta, and mint salad becomes a breeze on this cutting board. Available in various sizes to suit your needs. You can also reverse the board for a flat cutting surface whenever required.
Pro Tip: Place a piece of parchment paper on the board when cutting strawberries, beets, or other highly pigmented foods to prevent staining. To remove stains from the cutting board, create a paste by mixing kosher salt and a few drops of water. Rub the paste into the discolored area using a cloth until the board is clean. Finally, wipe away any residue with mild soap and water.
- A smaller cutting and serving board for quick meal prep. An indispensable tool for every kitchen is a smaller cutting board, especially when you require a lightweight and compact solution for quick tasks like chopping herbs, mincing garlic, or slicing individual fruits and vegetables such as wedging a lemon or lime for a refreshing summer drink. Look no further than the 1″ thick Boos Block Maple 4-Cooks Series, the ultimate go-to cutting board of choice. These versatile boards are available in a range of sizes, catering to your specific needs. Whether it’s the smallest at 12″ x 8″ or the largest at 20″ x 14″, you’ll find the perfect fit. Featuring exquisitely notched finger grips, these boards can be easily reversed to make use of the other side. Not only are they great for cutting, but they also serve as elegant presentation boards, ideal for showcasing side items like sliced tomatoes, mozzarella, and fresh basil. Additionally, they find a perfect spot at the bar, helping you prepare mint for refreshing drinks. For those who desire a touch of luxury, the 4-Cooks Boards are also available in American black walnut wood.
Pro-Tip: Despite its compact size, this board should never be placed in the dishwasher. It requires gentle hand washing and drying for proper care.

Pro Tip: Taking proper care of your wood cutting boards can ensure that they maintain the level of durability synonymous with the Boos Block brand. Oil and wax your board upon receiving it and then again for a minimum of once a month. To oil, apply an even coat of Boos Block Mystery Oil to all surfaces of your wood cutting board and allow it to absorb into the wood fibers overnight. It is recommended to use Boos Block Board Cream in addition to the oil. Apply an even coat of the Board Cream after your board has been oiled and allow the wax to absorb into the wood overnight. Wipe off any excess cream. Your board is now moisturized. The oiling and waxing process creates a hydrophobic barrier that resists water and food particles. Do not let liquids other than the oil and cream sit on your board for extended periods of time. A Boos Block maintenance and care kit is essential to keeping your board conditioned and prevents it from being stripped of moisture lost over time and repeated washing.
