The History of John Boos & Co

In 1887, Effingham, Illinois blacksmith Conrad Boos used a Sycamore tree placed on three legs while hammering horseshoes. Three years later, a local butcher realized a wooden Boos Block could be used for cutting meat, and had one custom made. Word spread to surrounding small towns and cities and by 1911, John Boos & Co was shipping custom butcher blocks from coast to coast. Throughout the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, John Boos expanded their production and product range to include tables and workbenches, the majority of which went to the war effort during WWII. By the 1940s, John Boos had earned their outstanding reputation for quality and craftsmanship, and John Boos butcher blocks were found in every restaurant, food store and butcher shop in America. Today, the traditional craftsmen work ethic is still alive and well at John Boos, where all boards and butcher blocks are still proudly manufactured in Effingham, Illinois. Often imitated, John Boos boards and blocks are favorites of professional chefs and can be found in restaurants and commercial settings worldwide.

Pack of Three, Single Tube


  1. From the product: “INGREDIENTS Natural unbleached bee’s wax and food grade mineral oil.” Also, “…For best results let the cream soak into the wood overnight, then remove the excess with a paper towel.” Ignore that instruction. You will need to do it more than once. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just unusual seeing the instructions for a product tell me to use too little, instead of too much.I used this on a new bamboo cutting board. It worked great and really soaked in well. But don’t plan on using the cutting board for a day or two after you first start treating it. A new board will really soak this up, and you want to err on the side of too much (which you can wipe off) versus too little (which may leave the board insufficiently treated).My board is 11-3/4″ x 15-3/4″ x 1-1/2″, bamboo, with rubber feet on the bottom. I treated the bottom and side of the board first, leaving a little extra coating on it. Then I placed the board on a layer of paper towels to minimize how much I might have to clean up from my kitchen counter. After I rubbed the cream into the top, I left it to stand overnight. In the morning, I was still able to rub more in. I checked back every couple of hours and rubbed in more. I kept finding a few spots that could absorb more of the cream, so I covered the whole thing again.Don’t wipe it off until you are absolutely sure it can’t absorb any more. By then, you’ll have very little excess cream, and you’ll basically buff it off with the paper towel. Your board will be darker, and look beautiful. You’ll want to leave it out on the counter, it will look so good.I bought two of these creams thinking I would use a whole tube on my brand new cutting board. But, in writing this review, I stopped to weigh the two tubes (using a digital scale we have) to see how much I used. The unopened tube weighed 6.0 ounces, and the tube I used weighed 5.0 ounces. All of that cream I used as described above, and I still only used 1.0 ounce (by weight). The cream is measured in the tube by fluid ounces, but at this small a size, it really is close. So I used 1/5 of the tube on a brand new cutting board, and won’t have to use an ounce every time I treat the board after cleaning. Great deal.I apologize for the long review, but I hope this helps you make your decision on which product to buy. This one has just what the websites say is great for your cutting board. I am really happy with it.

  2. Not one to gush about a product, I now am about to override my own disclaimer. I wanted to buy just the right thing, as I have never (hangs head in shame here) used a product other than mineral oil to seal my wooden kitchen items. Boos board cream has some staunch supporters and I have joined the crowd. I cannot believe the difference in every every application I have tried – old knife handles, old and new cutting boards, my olive wood mortal and pestle, my old and new wood and bamboo spoons. My favorite use has been on an old-fashioned wooden dish drainer. It looked pretty shabby; bleached dried out wood, no grain really visible. It took a good amount of time, rags and a basting brush to get in all the crevices. a labor of love really. But with the first swipe of board cream, you could see the wood reclaim its beauty, and it looks beautiful! I hate to put it away it looks so nice, and I get tickled with the complements it inspires. That didn’t happen before the board cream application, it was more like – when are you going to get rid of that sorry thing? Everything old is new again? Maybe so with this product. Be aware the consistency becomes liquid when the product gets warm (I did this work outside) and thickens again when it cools, which makes a difference when you put it on.

  3. I purchased the cream as well as the oil from John Boos to finish some new butcher block countertops I was installing in my home. I had a few requirements for the product. One I wanted it sourced in the USA as I don’t know where the ingredients are from in the big box store varieties of butcher clock mixes. Second I wanted a natural finish I could cut on and cook with(making pasta etc). Boos fit that description as it is natural beeswax and mineral oil.For the application, I did all prep work and initial coats prior to installing the countertops. I cut the counters, rounded the edges, sanded up to 180 grit, and applied the oil. 3 coats of oil were applied with a foam brush and as it soaked in I applied more for about 6 hours. Let sit overnight and wiped clean. Then I applied a liberal amount of the cream to the surface like buffing wax into a car surface and let sit for 8 hours. Wipe clean after and buff out any residual oil/ wax. This took several cloths(I used old tube socks as they work great for oil and paint applications) The maple came out beautifully as you can see in the pictures. Water beads up, the finish is smooth, and it has no residual smell, not that there was one when applying it either.

  4. I was totally impressed with this cream. After using it on both my bamboo and wooden cutting boards, I saw a noticeable difference. The intensity of the natural grain was brought out, and the seal was shiny and silky as described. Both boards had damage from overwashing and had previously only been treated with mineral oil, which didn’t stop them from drying out and losing some color. I applied this product and within hours the boards looked like new and had a nice sheen from the wax coating. The only suggestion I have is to apply more than you’d think you need as it absorbs quickly. Will definitely recommend to anyone needing to revitalize their cutting boards or wooden utensils.

  5. I purchased a big heavy (18″ x 24″) Boos block that I use for kneading my bread dough. I wanted to find a product I could use to treat and protect my board investment. I researched for a couple of days I decide to go with Boos line of products. I ordered the Boos Mystery Oil and the Boos Board Cream. After I had treated the board with the oil I applied the board cream and let is soak in overnight. I did this procedure to all wood surfaces for both the oil and the board cream. After the final removal of the board cream I observed there was no sticky residue on the board. As I mentioned at the start of this review I use my board exclusively for kneading breads. That includes dusting the board with flour. I have not observed any flower sticking to the board as a result of left over oil or board cream.As soon as you treat your board you will notice how the Boos products bring out the natural beauty of the wood. There are other products you could use for treating your wood cutting blocks and boards. I elected to go with the Boos line and have been quite happy with the results I have achieved.

  6. Love this stuff. I have a Boos block cutting board that was looking dry and in need of some TLC. It is a thicker cream that dispenses easily without any running at all. Applies easily and seemed to soak in to the wood well when left overnight and only slight excess to wipe off in the morning. Color of the wood was restored to original and lasted almost 3 weeks before needing to be redone. Of course your mileage may vary according to how heavily your particular board is used and what it is exposed to. Ours is used heavily and cleaned several times a day with a damp cloth (teens and their messes.)

  7. As the wife of an former butcher, I thought it rather fitting to be asked to review this product!The directions for use recommend that, for best results, the product be used in conjunction with the Boos Block Mystery Oil; but as a substitute, we used an odorless mineral oil. After coating our wooden chopping board and some of our wooden kitchen utensils with the mineral oil and leaving this to soak in overnight, by morning it was time to try out the Boos Block Board Cream itself.We noted approvingly that the product is “NSF approved”, meaning it meets standards for public health protection and is therefore safe to use on surfaces which come into contact with food. The cream was odorless, had a nice consistency – a little goes a fairly long way – and left the wood with an even coat. Once we had finished applying the product, out board and utensils all had a healthy and silky-looking gleam to them; quite the opposite to their normally dry and fuzzy-looking surfaces. We left the product to act on the wood for around 8-9 hours, after which our kitchen equipment looked just as nourished as when we had first applied the cream.The product information states that the cream forms a barrier that locks in moisture and prevents drying; however, after washing our utensils postcream application, I noticed that they had returned to their slightly dry-looking state. I must confess, though, that this probably has more to do with their age and the lack of care they have received over the years than anything else! The chopping board, on the other hand, had retained its healthy glow after washing. I will definitely be treating our kitchen equipment to another dose of Boos Block Board Cream soon!

  8. Clean the board and let it dry for hours. Basically you buy the oil and the cream together. You oil the board once per month so it doesn’t dry out. Then you wait 24 hours after oiling the board and wipe off the excess – if any. Then you apply the cream, same process, wait until next day and wipe off excess. I use my fingers to apply so I can feel where the board needs it and I use a clean no-lint rag to wipe down the board.

  9. Good stuff. It can bring a beat up and dried out cutting board back to life. I sanded my board down with 100 grit several times. I then placed 4 or 5 applications of the board cream on my Boos Board over the course of 4 days. It really brought the board back to greatness. I use my board daily and hadn’t given it the care it requires. This product does a superb job. I’ll keep up with it from now on. Amazing, my Boos Board is well over 20 years old and has seen a ton of use. Properly taken care of, these board can be passed on to the cooks in my family for the next 50 years or more.
