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.

We remodeled our kitchen last summer and needed a rolling kitchen island. Went to Williams-Sonoma and the best match they had was a burly $1000 Boos island and a $300 flimsy-foldable option. Found this and over six months later we're very happy with it. It looks great. When you push it, it feels sturdy and it's nicely weighted. The height between the shelves is perfect for most of our appliances like our Kitchen-Aid mixer and Cuisinart food processor. Very nice product.

This was not easy for one very small woman to put together by herself, but I did it and love it! It is heavy, over 70 lbs., but that's part of the quality. There were no missing parts and everything fit together just as it should. It looks so nice and is easily functional. I like that the casters lock, making a stable work surface.

The cart is very sturdy and once the wheels are locked it stays put and doesn't move. The block is beautiful and solid. I use conditioner to keep it looking great. This cart gave me the additional work area I needed without being too overwhelming for my small kitchen. The cart also gives me extra storage with the shelves underneath. Highly recommend.

We ordered this kitchen cart to replace a larger movable kitchen island and it gave our kitchen am instant upgrade! The larger island took up too much space so we wanted to pick something that would take up less space but also give us enough food prep space. This cart is perfect! The wood top is beautiful, the cart is sturdy and the wheel locks work wonderfully so the cart doesn't move at all while I'm using it for food prep. I store my dry goods (beans, rice, flours) in clear containers on the shelves of the cart as well as a bread box and it looks really nice. I'm very happy that we chose this kitchen cart!

Oh how I love this cart! I needed extra work space in my kitchen and this little cart fit the bill perfectly! It's like having a little island in the middle of the kitchen. Very study and well-made; exactly the quality that you would expect from Boos. Highly recommend. :)

For our small kitchen, this cart was perfect. Very nice cutting block and the best part is that it is removable, making it very easy to clean or convenient just to use the cart for counter space.

This was just ok, especially for the price. The top was much lighter than pictured. The wheels very hard to put on and get even (mine still aren't), and the lip that keeps the board on top is quite small and I worry that over time it will wear. Am not sending it back, mostly because it was too hard to put together and now ship back but would not buy again unless it were a lot less than$500
