Alex Seidel

"I love my Boos Block cutting board!  It is the centerpiece in my kitchen.  The only problem is that all my cooks want one now. It is the most durable cutting board that I have ever used.  The way my knife reacts to the wood and the product makes the most precise cuts...I will never compromise that reaction again. Thank you!"

Celebrity Chef

"Getting out your knives and oiling your cutting boards are part of the ritual of cooking and help a chef prepare for the day. Boos ® understands this and honors that ritual by offering chefs the finest cutting surface available. Just like the artisan producers and farmers we work with so we can create the food we do at Blackbird, John Boos Company is committed to honest quality and craftsmanship."

Paul Virant

"The versatility of Boos boards are greatly appreciated in the Vie kitchen and at my home. My knife's edge is preserved better when working on wood versus plastic boards. Also, they are perfect for baking and pastry, for rolling doughs and kneading. We purchase the highest quality ingredients and equipment to help master our craft. The handcrafted boards fits right into this mold. Thanks for taking the time to produce something that makes our lives easier..."

Chef Richard BlaisChef/Owner
Richard Blais

Chef Richard Blais- “You date knives, but marry cutting boards,” he quipped recently while in Manhattan on a whirlwind shopping expedition for the latter.

Professionally, Mr. Blais prefers heavy wooden boards because “they don’t slide around,” he said. “And I like the way knives feel on them: I cut cleaner and chop better,” he said. Mr. Blais found a number of boards he thought home chefs would like, for both cutting and serving. The Newton Prep Master by John Boos, at Bowery Kitchen Supplies in Chelsea Market, was a winner for its hefty weight, juice groove and built-in pan to capture juices. “This makes it easy to save the juices that run off when you’re carving your roast chicken or prime rib,” he said.

Chef Tom Douglas

"One of the most important tools in the kitchen is the cutting board. The synergy of the cook, the knife and the board creates magic. The Boos board is an American icon that represents American quality and craftsmanship. Best of all, the Boosboard lasts and develops a patina much like a cast iron pan and represents the history of my kitchen and the friends and family that have surrounded my table. We are proud to use them in our Hot Stove Society cooking school."
