Product Description

J.K. Adams: A 2nd-Generation, Family-Owned Company

Kitchen storage solutions by J.K. Adams make it easy to save on valuable kitchen space while enjoying the best of USA-made craftsmanship. The family-owned company provides everything from pot hooks and spice bottles to wooden spice carousels, kitchen-knife blocks, bread boxes, wine racks, pot racks, and more. J.K. Adams' wooden kitchen items feature renewable and sustainable wood in Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Alder, Ash, or Hickory varieties. A thoughtful choice for gift giving, the high-quality kitchen items provide sleek designs and convenient functionality for year after year of everyday convenience.

Innovative Kitchen-Storage Solutions

In the late-1970's, when the gourmet-chef-tools market in the U.S. was still in its infancy, J.K. Adams owner Malcolm Cooper, Sr. conceived of the first slanted knife block. His goal was to create a cutlery organizer that would hold knives at a low enough angle that they could be easily removed from the block when it was pushed back under a cabinet overhang. The J.K. Adams Kangaroo knife block was launched in 1980--the first-ever slanted knife block, and still the best.

Recognizing the many opportunities to improve kitchen storage, J.K. Adams introduced the revolving "carousel" spice rack in 1982 followed by countless other well-designed storage products in the years since, including the popular in-drawer knife tray in 1994, a space-saving alternative to the knife block that offers the same safety and blade protection.

In 2011, J.K. Adams takes cutlery storage to a new level once again with the new Universal knife block. For over 30 years, J.K. Adams has continued to lead and inspire the kitchen storage market with their innovative designs, superior hardwoods, and exemplary craftsmanship.

Today, J.K. Adams continues to provide innovative designs, superior hardwoods, and high-quality craftsmanship.

J.K. Adams: Over 65 Years of New England Yankee Craftsmanship

Some of the world's finest woodworkers can be found in New England. The rich heritage and folklore of the great Yankee Woodworker is as well known today as it was hundreds of years ago, and the craft has been handed down through the generations. J.K. Adams' success is certainly attributable to the early Vermonters employed by the company while in its infancy who brought forth the techniques and quality craftsmanship that could only come from generations of shared knowledge and experience.

The J.K. Adams factory has been at the same location since the beginning. As many as three generations of families have relied on J.K. Adams to provide for their families. Located in a rural area of Vermont, J.K. Adams remains one of the largest employers in the area and is an important pillar of support for the local community.

J.K. Adams has always used the creativity and skill of their workforce in developing new products, and today J.K. Adams continues its New England craftsmanship with a wide variety of cutting boards, as well as wooden salad bowls, kitchen islands, and slate serving trays. And at the J.K. Adams factory, you'll find future generations of woodworkers building upon the traditions begun over 65 years ago.

Cutting boards and other products by J.K Adams are made in the North America.


About J.K. Adams' Logo

In colonial New England, three strokes of a broad ax were used to mark the finest trees in the forest for the Queens' Navy shipmasts. The broad arrow was adopted as our logo because it symbolizes the exceptional quality of wood that goes into our products.

J.K. Adams' Company History

  • Started over 65 years ago in a small garage in Dorset, Vermont
  • Cooper family purchased business from founder Josiah K. Adams in 1949
  • Began with the Speedy Racer toy, and then followed by manufacturing drafting and surveying tables, Kiwi shoe groomers, gifts, and furniture
  • Now the leading supplier of wooden storage and food preparation products for the specialty housewares industry

Our Wood

  • Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Alder, Ash, and Hickory
  • Either from New England or other North American sources
  • Renewable and sustainable
  • Hard and durable, yet forgiving to knife edges

Wood Grains

End Grain
  • Prized for look and longest wear
  • Identifiable by small pieces put together
  • Board usually thick and heavy
  • Many pieces, lots of glue joints, cracking can be a problem
Edge Grain
  • Most common in cutting boards
  • Moderate grain pattern
  • Stable with minimum glue joints

Why Choose a Wood Cutting Board?

Wood is naturally anti-bacterial, and any bacteria left on the board will actually lessen in time versus multiplying on a plastic cutting board. A wooden board will also be more gentle on your knife's edge, and it just feels and sounds better under a knife.

Caring for Your J.K. Adams Cutting Board

Wash by hand in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly, and oil frequently with mineral oil to help give it an optimal appearance. Do not soak, microwave, freeze, or put in the dishwasher. For removing stains, you can use a weak bleach-and-water solution or a combination of lemon juice and salt. Be sure to rinse and wipe with mineral oil afterward. Additionally, the surface can be sanded to make the board look like new--although a board with wear will add character to your kitchen. For storage, keep the board away from strong sunlight as avoiding UV rays will reduce the risk of fading.

Environmental Responsibilities

  • We only purchase lumber from a select few suppliers who we are confident practice sustainable forestry practices
  • Vermont forests are growing faster than they are being harvested
  • J.K. Adams has been awarded the Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence

It is pieces glued together not one slab of wood.

This is a great bread board - much more affordable than some of the two-piece ones (why two pieces??), and looks great for use in the kitchen or for serving the bread on the table. The wood is a great quality and large enough for any loaf bread. I would highly recommend this item.

If you need a cutting board just for loaves of bread you could choose this one as it is well made. However, it is much too small to catch all the crumbs and catching crumbs was why I wanted it. I still have to wipe up the crumbs from all around the board so I wasted my money. I should just have kept on using the large board I have and wiped the crumbs from that each time. If you just need a board for bread and want to try to catch the crumbs, see if there is a much larger one.

Size Name: 14-Inch-by-9-Inch
I bake my own bread and have quite a mess of crumbs when I slice it, which is why I wanted to try a crumb-catcher cutting board. This one is not too big and does the trick. Fits easily into a drawer, standing next to my pots and pans. It is also attractive and reversible. The crumbs definitely get caught in the slats. I still, of course, have some crumbs on the counter, but it is a bit neater. I put a rubber pad under the cutting board to keep it from sliding on my granite counter-top (actually, it is a leftover scrap of padding that I cut to put under a rug).

This board is very attractive for a serving piece. The grooves do a great job of catching crumbs from most homemade breads except the really crusty artisan varieties. With these extra crunchy crusts, a deeper groove would be more helpful. Since I purchased this particularly to use with homemade artisan breads, I need to rate it a 4 out of 5. The quality of workmanship is very high and I wouldn't discourage anyone from purchasing this board. The purchase price is reasonable given the quality of workmanship. I expect this board will be in service many years though I'll keep looking for one with deeper grooves.

This is great for cutting bread but it should be a little bit bigger. It needs to be hand washed and a coating of butcher block wax wouldn't hurt either.

The size is just right for the loaves from by 1.5 lb bread machine. It can also double as a cheese & fruit board. I'm glad I got the larger size.

It's beautifully made from a nice piece of wood. The one I received had obviously been out and back because the edge was scuffed. It was easy enough to reoil the marks.

Gave this as a gift to my husband, & he loves it.

I should have measured it out at home. This is half the size I expected it to be. In fact, I might get another one and glue them together. I really like the cutting board. We always have problems with crumbs and our last wood bread cutting board from IKEA did not last very long at all.
