This 12 inch cutting board is great for making meals for two. I actually own the larger, 18" x 12" x 2.25" board as well but having since moved to a smaller apartment with less counter space, the large board took up too much space in my kitchen to be used for making two person meals on a daily basis. I bought the 12" board and couldn't be happier with the size. It's perfectly square and comes with four feet that protect the bottom of the board from water and food juices, a feature I really love about the board. I chose to go with a Boos block because they're made from maple, a softer wood that is easy on knives and tends not to dull knives as quickly as bamboo and plastic cutting boards. If you have a set of high quality knives I would definitely go with a maple cutting board to extend the lifespan of your knives. The board will show knife marks over time and use, but I find this fairly normal since the wood is softer than bamboo. I've uploaded photos comparing the 12 inch square maple cutting board to the larger 18x12 Boos block I also own for size reference.
One thing I do recommend for cleaning the board is to use a wet paper towel and wipe down the board after you're done using it instead of throwing it into the sink and running it under water. I have never run it directly under water or used dish detergent on the board, since the wood can soak up the chemicals from the dish detergent. I noticed that when cutting green onions or any herb, the smell will tend to "soak" into the board. When this happens I take some slices of lemon and sprinkle some coarse salt over the board and rub it in a few times with the lemon/ salt scrub mixture. I let it sit for about 5 minutes and then wipe it off. The lemon helps neutralize the odors and keep new food from picking up the odor.
I bought the Boo's mystery oil and the bee's wax to condition the board and use the oil once the board starts looking a bit dry (about one to two times a week). You'll notice the board is dry when it begins to look white and no longer the rich wood color on top. I use the bees wax about twice a month to keep the waxy layer on the board and that really helps with preventing water from being soaked into the board. I've had this cutting board now for over a year use it on a daily basis, and haven't had any problems with it. This is my second Boo's block cutting board and I really love the quality of these boards. I've had all kinds of boards from plastic to bamboo and had various bamboo boards break in half, but haven't encountered any issues with the Boo's block! Just be sure to take good care of the board, these boards do require more care than the typical cutting board but I think it's worth it considering how long they last.

I saw on my Bon Appetite channel that the Pro Chefs were using this brand of cutting board and I happened to find this one at a fantastic price! Way better than I expected! Nice flat surface and very thick. I’m leaving mine out as it is pleasing to look at. Highly Recommend!
The cutting board was in great shape when it arrived2017年5月1日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
The cutting board was in great shape when it arrived. I also ordered the John Boos oil and cream to treat the board per the instructions. I treated the board before use and have treated it faithfully each month since we received it. However, the seams are separating and the board seems to be coming apart. The glue seems to be failing. I will continue to treat it with the oil and cream and I'm sure we will use it until it falls apart, but I am rather disappointed as this board replaced one we had for 15 years with little issue.
Board not level2019年10月11日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I got the 12z12 maple with feet. Board arrived today. It's heavy, it's sturdy, it's beautiful, but it doesn't sit level. One foot is apparently slightly shorter than the other three so it rocks. Not exactly ideal for a cutting board. I can't return it as I have a broken right arm. I had to manuever the box with my feet and left hand and push it over the threshold into the house. Between the weight and box width I couldn't pick it up one-handed so there's no way I could get it boxed up and into the car and then from the car into a shipping office. I'm going to try to sand down the other three feet and see if I can get it level. I would think of all the processes involved in creating one of these the easiest part would be getting four feet on and making sure it sits level. When I purchase an item I expect a finished product not something where I have to do the work to complete it and make it usable. I will have to think twice before ordering anything else from this company.
