John Boos makes quality products that will last for years and years, if taken care of. The question is, what does one have to do to take care of a John Boos, let’s say, cutting board? Thankfully, their website has care instructions. An excerpt:
Keep your Boos cutting board clean by simply washing it with hot soapy water after each use and dry it with a clean paper towel or let it air dry. If you want to sanitize the board more thoroughly, a diluted mixture of chlorine bleach or vinegar solution consisting of one teaspoon of liquid chlorine bleach in one quart of water or a one to five dilution of vinegar.
Do not soak or submerge the board in water, for this will disrupt the moisture content and cause the rails to split. Wood cutting boards are NOT dishwasher safe.
Note that it doesn’t say anything about not burning them, not shooting them, nor throwing them in a wood chipper. Would we ever do these things to a John Boos cutting board to test it’s resolve? Well, it is up to you, dear reader. Let us know what you would like to see done to a John Boos cutting board, and we’ll do our best to make it happen, and film it.
