John Boos and Company has been making cutting boards and tables for dozens of years, and their modern pieces are as high-quality as ever. The JNS series is available in a range of sizes, and is essentially iconic. It doesn't consist of much more than their classic, chopping-block surface, plus a steel frame and shelf, but as far as tables go, it's really a lesson in functionality. The Cucina D'Amico is not only useful, but remarkably convenient, with 3-inch casters that make it easy to move its bulk around any room. The Cucina Grande, on the other, is quite stationary, and combines many of the brand's best and most memorable features. The EPT6R5 may look like it belongs in a commercial kitchen, and that's because it does — it should perform as well as, or better than, any of the off-brand options you'll find. The Pro Chef Walnut and Butcher Block are both notable in their bulk and weight; they're ideal for the frequent meat carver, or the home cook who wants to make a fashion statement. The High Coved DNB is absolutely worth a look if you'll be rolling any dough, and it's responsible for countless pizzas across the country. The Country Hard Rock, Maple Grazzi, and Kitchen Island, however, should be under consideration for anyone who wants to lend a classic feel to their remodeled or re-outfitted home kitchen. Whichever you choose, be certain to care for it properly, oiling and/or rubbing it with Boos-brand cream as necessary.
