Here’s a short video that will give you a closer look at the iBlock and the iBlock Pro.
Why I Like the iBlock So Much
If you’re like me and you like to watch movies while you cook or follow along with your favorite TV or YouTube chef or if you just like to use your iPad for looking up online recipe, this Boos iBlock is awesome.
It comes in 2 styles, the iBlock and the iBlock Pro. The iBlock has a detached base for your tablet or iPad and the iBlock Pro is all one piece.
I like the 2 piece iBlock because the board is compact and I can move it around & wash it off without touching my iPad. Then it stores easily when you’re not using it.
Plus, it comes in maple, cherry (like this one) and walnut. All the wood varieties Boos uses for all of their cutting boards are great because they are sustainable forested, made in the U.S.A., and won’t blunt your knife blade like a bamboo or plastic cutting board.
I like the all inclusive iBlock Pro because it is a little larger and I don’t have to worry about 2 pieces getting separated from each other. The other thing that’s really nice about this board is the trough right here. If I’m cutting something that’s juicy, those juices are going to run right into here not on to my counter or my iPad.
If you’re thinking about getting one of these as a gift or maybe for yourself here’s the link where you can find them: John Boos Factory Showroom & Outlet or you can call them at 217-347-7790.
Now another thing I like about both of these styles, is they have finger niches underneath that make them easy to pick up and put down.
Pro Tip: Consider using one cutting board for fresh produce and bread and a completely separate one for raw meat. This will cut down on the risk of cross contamination.
How to Care for your Boos iBlocks
And when it comes time to care for your Boos board, nothing beats Boos Block Mystery Oil and Board Cream.
The Oil & Cream are both made with food safe ingredients that will keep your cutting board in excellent condition and looking new. The guys over at the factory recommend oiling your boards a minimum of once a month.
