In the late 1800’s, butchers worldwide replaced their giant sycamore tree trunk rounds with our exclusive Wood Welded® edge-grain butcher block. 125 years later, solid hardwood butcher block is still regarded as the preferred food preparation surface of kitchen professionals.
When specifying professional-grade cutting boards for your food service operation, consider butcher block an essential element. It is cutlery friendly, reduces knife-slip and when properly maintained, the equipment investment will last a lifetime.
The 1 3/4″ thick reversible maple board is the most popular for commercial foodservice applications. Reversible for double the kitchen duty—use one side for meats, the other for garden ingredients. Available in three sizes. Easy to maintain with mineral oil or Emmet’s Elixir Wood Conditioner. National Sanitation Foundation (NSF®) Certified.

Dimensions: 12" X 18" X 1-3/4"

Material: Hard Maple 

Care and Maintenance:

 

OILED OR UNFINISHED BUTCHER BLOCK
Wood Welded butcher block cutting boards, chopping blocks, specialty boards and gourmet products come factory finished with food-safe mineral oil. Although the block was oiled during construction, it may have dried during storage and shipping, therefore it is recommended the butcher block be oiled with mineral oil prior to use.
To maintain unfinished butcher block, follow these handy tips:

1. Before use, oil the cutting surface with food grade mineral oil.
2. Be sure to coat the top, bottom, ends and edges of the block every time you oil it. Apply oil often, especially when the block appears to be dry.
3. DO NOT submerse the board in water. Instead, clean it with a wet cloth or sponge using a mild liquid detergent. You can use a disinfecting cleanser or a mixture of 1 tsp. chlorine bleach to 1 quart of water. Rinse well. Do not use powder cleanser.
4. Allow the board to dry in a rack or with the board standing on edge to ensure sufficient air flow all the way around the board.
5. When determining how often to oil a block, the general rule of thumb is once a day for a week upon purchase; once a week for a month; and once a month forever. The block should be oiled whenever the wood starts to look dry and chalky.

 

Edge Options

  • Standard

    Standard

    The most popular, the edges of the board are square and have been finshed (deburred) so they are safe to handle.

  • Bullnose

    We will round the edges so they are not square, often referred to as rounded.

  • Unfinished

    Unfinished (Saw Cut)

    Not very common, this is just like it says. No finishing, edges are sharp. Typically people use this option in custom applications.

Corner Options

  • Standard

    Standard

    The most popular, the corners are square (90 degrees) and have been finshed so they are safe to handle.

  • Rounded

    Rounded

    The corners are rounded at about a 1/2" radius.  Typically people will round the corners if they walk past the board often in a commercial kitchen.

  • Unfinished

    Unfinished (Saw Cut)

    Not very common, there is no finishing and the corner is sharp.

Juice Grooves

  • Cutting Board with Juice Groove

    Also commonly referred to as juice troughs, juice grooves are one of our most requested customizations. We simply route a small trough around the perimeter of your board to catch drippings from carving meat.
