John Boos Hard Rock Maple Butcher Block : The White House kitchen and premier restaurants prefer this 3"-thick hardwood chopping block, made from hard rock northern maple for exceptional durability. Protects knives from dulling and resists nicks, preventing bacteria. Crafted since 1887 by John Boos & Co. Hand-wash. Made in USA. Square butcher block is exclusive to CHEFS.
I received this as a gift. My first thought was "Wow, I got a butcher block for my birthday." After trying it out several times, I say "WOW, this butcher block is the best one ever!" So easy to clean up and doesn't dull my knifes at all. Stays where it's suppose to be. This will probably last the rest of my life! Now, I need someone to give me a super duper set of knifes to go with my beautiful butcher block! I can not come up with any cons for this yet.
