John Boos & Company circa 1900.

The History of John Boos & Co

In business since 1887, John Boos & Co. is the oldest industry in South Central Illinois. Founder, Conrad Boos Sr. named the business after his son, John and for years, worked out of a blacksmith shop in Effingham. The blacksmith used a Sycamore tree placed on three legs to straighten horseshoes. The wooden block absorbed the shock of the hammer. In 1890, a local butcher realized the block could be used for cutting meat, and had one made. The word spread to surrounding small towns and cities and by 1911, John Boos was shipping from coast to coast.

In 1956, John Boos began to sell some of their products for home use. Today, John Boos cutting boards are found in hotels and restaurant kitchens, culinary schools, and on televised cooking shows. The old craftsmen work ethic is still around at John Boos, with a few changes.Premium Hard Rock Maple lumber from the surrounding Mid-West and Northern States is used in place of Sycamore lumber. And John Boos automation has replaced much of the older equipment with the exception of the 1942 block press which is very much in use today.

John Boos & Co. utilizes 100% of their raw material to benefit the manufacturing processes. The smallest lumber scraps are transformed into sawdust and used to generate electricity and create steam to fuel the boilers.

The Early Years

In 1892 the Boos family sold interest in the company to the Gravenhorst family. In 1895 the building burned and was rebuilt. In 1899 they moved to the present site of 315 South First Street for more space.

In 1920, they added extra buildings and kilns.. By the 1940s, butcher blocks were found in every restaurant, food store and butcher shop in America.

Last Half of the Century

Following WWII, the company added a dry kiln, increased its office space, and added manufacturing space. The shipping docks were enlarged while warehousing space and new products were added.

The company continued expanding through the 60s and '70s with the growth of its metal table market with synthetic tops, stainless-steel tops, or maple tops. Even though the government was tough on wood products through the 1970s and '80s, the company continued to grow with its new line of BDL store fixtures, park benches, and other butcher block furniture.

Current Products & Markets

The wood and metal products are listed with the National Sanitation Foundation, the leader in sanitation agencies for approving equipment to be installed in foodservice and supermarket operations. The products must have approval of various sanitation agencies in order to be accepted by the industry.

John Boos & Co. Cucina butcher blocks and cutting boards are used by celebrity chefs throughout the USA, including Charlie Trotter, Ming Tsai, Paul Kahan, Susan Spicer, Mary Sue Milliken, and Susan Feninger. In addition, chef’s featured on "The Food Network", such as Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse, prepare meals every day on John Boos cutting boards. In 1994, we were we were 1 of 22 companies awarded the Gold Medal for Excellence in Foodservice Equipment by the Chefs of America at a ceremony conducted at Carnegie Hall in NYC.

John Boos & Company Today

The company currently occupies approximately 150,000 square feet in Effingham, IL and approximately 65,000 square feet in Philipsburg, PA and Suring, WI. The company’s four dry kilns dry up to 210,000 board feet of lumber on a continual basis. Most of the hardwoods used for manufacturing are shipped from the Great Lakes, while the stainless steel comes from warehouses and distribution centers in Chicago, Indianapolis, and St. Louis.

Care and Maintenance

Keeping Your Board Sanitized

Wash your John Boos cutting board with hot soapy water after each use and dry it with a clean towel or let it air dry. For further sanitation, the board can be rinsed with a vinegar or chlorine bleach solution. (1 teaspoon bleach to one quart of water/5-to-1 ratio of vinegar to water) Do not soak the board in water--this will damage the wood. Wood cutting boards are NOT dishwasher-safe.

Maintaining Your Board

Oil your cutting board on all surfaces every 3-4 weeks. The Boos block cream finish with beeswax (included with the board) will protect and prolong the board’s life. We recommend using John Boos Mystery Oil and/or Boos Block Cream with Beeswax.

Research: Plastic vs. Wooden Cutting Boards

Led by Dean O. Cliver, Ph.D, a research team compared plastic and wooden cutting boards to find out how to best disinfect wooden cutting boards from bacteria. They found that disease bacteria were not recoverable from both new and older knife-scarred wooden surfaces in a short time after they were applied, unless very large numbers were used. They found that while new plastic surfaces allowed the bacteria to persist, they were easily cleaned and disinfected. However, they found that older, knife-scarred plastic surfaces were impossible to clean and disinfect manually, especially when food residues such as chicken fat were present. Further, they found that if a sharp knife is used to cut into the work surfaces after used plastic or wood has been contaminated with bacteria and cleaned manually, more bacteria are recovered from the plastic surface than from the wood surface.

The research team has no commercial relationships to John Boos or any other company making cutting boards. They believe, on the basis of their published and to-be-published research that food can be prepared safely on wooden cutting surfaces and that plastic cutting surfaces present some disadvantages. In conclusion, they believe their research shows evidence that wooden cutting boards are not a hazard to human health, but plastic cutting boards may be.

Gorgeous board and it's a joy to cut on. I don't have to worry about running out of space and can do my entire prep in one go. I haven't used it for cutting meat as I prefer to use plastic and then put that in dishwasher to sanitize properly.

It is hefty but the channel and spout make it easier to wash with light soap and water. I used Boos Mystery Oil on it and it made it a bit darker- which I like. I haven't used the cream yet.

For those with small kitchens, storage may be an issue. It is HUGE! I just leave it covered with a kitchen towel on my island.

I will update in a few months regarding its durability.

UPDATE***

I bought this board along with the Boos oil 2 months back and oiled it thoroughly once as it was very dry. Since then I hand wash, dry immediately and then put a little oil on the dry patches. Recently, I saw a crack appear at a seam and when I called John Boos, they told me that it's because I have been oiling it too much. Really??? I oil it only when it looks dry and that's what's suggested on their bottle. They told me to contact Amazon, which I did, but I will have to pay restocking fees as it's past the 'return by' date. I have decided to keep it and use it until the whole thing cracks but I am very disappointed in the quality!

I give two stars for the size and heft as well as the channel around which contains the mess while cutting juicy fruits and vegetables.

Got this on sale for a very good price and haven't had a chance to use it yet but it is beautiful and looks great atop my tiny kitchen cart.

I paid half what it is currently listed for, so if you think this is out of your price range, add it to your cart, move it to 'save for later' and you will get updates when you visit your cart if the price changes at all.

I purchased this board off of a Amazon Lightning deal for $89.99. It is obviously superior quality and should last a lifetime if maintained. It is so nice that I have been putting my other cheaper cutting boards over it to protect it from scaring it up. I just leave it on our prep island so moving it around and storing it is not an issue for us. The reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is described as having stainless steel handles. It does not. ("The board is equipped with stainless steel handles for easy transport from counter to stovetop.") If it were just a mediocre cutting board I would have hammered it with one star for that error in advertising.

I knew this thing would be heavy duty, but I was shocked and how nice and stout it was when it showed up. It is big enough to cut up large prime ribs and big turkeys (birdzilla's) with lots of room left to stack the meat. This John Boos will also last a lifetime and well beyond if taken care of. In this case you really get what you pay for and can't go wrong.

Word to the wise, pay attention to the stated dimensions. This is a very large cutting board and may not work well in some kitchens, it's also very heavy. For my uses though, it is perfect and I love it. Took about 65 coats of cutting board oil to get it seasoned though, but with every coat it got better and better looking, the color and grain just really came out and it is beautiful. Bigger than expected and needed lots of seasoning but I can't imagine my kitchen without it now.

well made and heavy as hell... perhaps i should have gone with smaller 1.5" model. after all, where in a normal-sized kitchen does one store something this big? within a few days of receipt the top of mine developed a small separation between the edges of two adjacent maple strips, but liberal use of Boos board cream (beeswax) and frequent washings closed it back up; be sure to oil or wax yours regularly!

I love this board. It is a bit more work to clean/dry this than a smaller one, but it looks great and is perfect for day to day chopping or presenting a whole turkey. Well worth the money and liquid reservoir works great.

This is a really nice board. Really heavy and can take and chopping abuse. This always makes a big impression when i have guest over. My only complaint is the back side of the board had some flaking off of the wood. I don't used the back side for cutting anyways, but for the amount of money paid for this, they could have done a better job and picking the flaws out of the wood.
