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

My board was perfectly flat at first. I noticed that it was distinctly warped after the first use. I use it nearly every day and probably even several times a day, and sometimes it is warped on one side then the other, (JK Adams is etched on only one side). It appears that the warping occurs because the board gets washed and rinsed with water, but typically only on the side that was in use. Apparently the moisture seeps into the wood causing that side to expand resulting in a distinct curve. I find that by purposefully wetting both sides and standing to dry I minimize the warping, but seriously I never saw this happen before and really think it ought not to happen at all if the wood is prepared properly. The board does seem to be made of maple and it is hard, in that after many uses with sharp knives I can barely distinguish a cut mark in it. It's usable, but I don't think having it lay flat is too high an expectation.

It is less than a year since the purchase date and this board has split on several of the glued seams and is no longer usable.

This board was the perfect size for a specific need we had in our kitchen. Reviews seems good so off we went.
Within 2 days of owning this board, maybe 3 uses, it started to warp, and warp seriously. Within 1 week it was entirely split in two. We've owned many boards, both high end and low, and know how to care for them. Shocked at how quickly this split. Maybe just one bad board in the lot, but we'll certainly stay away.

We purchased this cutting board after reviewing numerous other options - and regret every moment of it. It's been a few months, but the board started wrapping up soon after we starting using it and then a crack appeared right in the middle, and today, it split evenly in two parts. We clean it daily, dry it everyday, and yet, it broke. Severely disappointed and will stay away from this brand forever.

When I saw this cutting board I thought, huh... I bet that shape would be useful. Most cutting boards are more square, but this one is an unusual rectangle shape, much more wide than deep.

That extra width means I can push the food I've already chopped off to the side and still have room to keep chopping. But in terms of *depth*, it's still a mid-sized cutting board. It doesn't take as much room on my table as a really big chopping board.

It's beautifully made and looks very durable. I've been oiling it faithfully and it looks great.

Size: 17 by 14-Inch
I ordered this (17" x 14" ) cutting board just over a month ago to furnish a new kitchen. After just over a month, about 35 days, there is a crack along the length of the board where the wood is splitting at the seam.

This board has been treated extremely well. Only cleaned with a damp sponge, never put under the faucet, and used to cut only dry items, like cheese and bread. Mineral oil was applied three times, and despite all of this, it split anyway. I expect it will split into pieces and be completely unusable within another week or two. Buy something else, this board is not worth your money.

Just received this small cutting board. We own many types and many sizes from both J.K. Adams & John Boos.

These will be used on a serving table for various types of food. They are light weight, attractive and perfect size. They have slightly rounded corners and are well made.

We purchase the 4 for 3 price discount.

Suggest using the J.K. Adams "turn over" boards with a trough for cutting meat, juicy vegetables or fruits, otherwise use the standard boards for dry items.

You can't go wrong with J.K. Adams or John Boos, they are the standard in the industry.

Size: 17 by 14-Inch Verified Purchase
I ordered this in the 17" x 14." It's perfect for slicing bread.

The board is about 1/2 inch thick. It's well-sanded and smooth. The edges are slightly curved. I like the thin profile. An inch thick would look nicer, but I only keep it on the counter while I'm using it. Besides, since it's only 1/2 inch thick, it's not so heavy it's cumbersome.

It's a good board for a good price, and I do like maple. The board I received looks very like the photo on the product page.

I have always purchased cutting boards locally but they never lasted long, especially the bamboo cutting boards which broke in half. This is a great cutting board. I am looking forward to buying more J.K. Adams products.
