“I cannot rave enough about Boos cutting boards. I have multiple boards in my Los Angeles and Italian kitchens and I also use them in my Italian cooking school. They are made with highest quality wood and designed to last for years. They are so easy to maintain and make chopping and prep work a breeze. They are hands down the best boards on the market. I also love their carving board for meat, their sturdy maple butcher block and the round boards are amazing for creating epic charcuterie and cheese boards. If you are looking for the perfect board to turn you into a master chef, look no further than Boos.”
