blocks have become an integrated part in most
modern kitchens. From early on when the John Boos company
made his first block for a local butcher in 1887 he had
probably no idea that over a century later butcher blocks
can be found in many households all over the country.
Originally designed for professional applications, butcher
blocks are more and more used to set a practical detail
in modern kitchen cabinet
such as Bally, Michigan Maple Block and
John Boos butcher blocks offer
a wide variety of butcher blocks in nearly all sizes.
Some are the traditional 4 leg blocks, others are a
little bit better integrated like butcher block islands.
Most of the time theses blocks are made out of maple
or beech wood and are very easy to be cleaned up. Combined
with a decorative knife holder they make every modern
kitchen even more professional.
Modern butcher blocks
From the past antique butcher blocks to the modern
once, the material used has changed. Instead of wooden
butcher blocks, some manufacturers offer plastic cutting
boards fulfilling basically the same need as the wooden
once. However the impression a solid wooden butcher
block or island can give your kitchen is unmatched.
