<div class="aplus"> <h4>J.K. Adams: A 2nd-Generation, Family-Owned Company</h4> <p>Kitchen storage solutions by J.K. Adams make i...t easy to save on valuable kitchen space while enjoying the best of USA-made craftsmanship. The family-owned company provides everything from pot hooks and spice bottles to wooden spice carousels, kitchen-knife blocks, bread boxes, wine racks, pot racks, and more. J.K. Adams' wooden kitchen items feature renewable and sustainable wood in Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Alder, Ash, or Hickory varieties. A thoughtful choice for gift giving, the high-quality kitchen items provide sleek designs and convenient functionality for year after year of everyday convenience.</p> <h5>Innovative Kitchen-Storage Solutions</h5> <p>In the late-1970's, when the gourmet-chef-tools market in the U.S. was still in its infancy, J.K. Adams owner Malcolm Cooper, Sr. conceived of the first slanted knife block. His goal was to create a cutlery organizer that would hold knives at a low enough angle that they could be easily removed from the block when it was pushed back under a cabinet overhang. The J.K. Adams Kangaroo knife block was launched in 1980--the first-ever slanted knife block, and still the best.</p> <p>Recognizing the many opportunities to improve kitchen storage, J.K. Adams introduced the revolving "carousel" spice rack in 1982 followed by countless other well-designed storage products in the years since, including the popular in-drawer knife tray in 1994, a space-saving alternative to the knife block that offers the same safety and blade protection.</p> <p>In 2011, J.K. Adams takes cutlery storage to a new level once again with the new Universal knife block. For over 30 years, J.K. Adams has continued to lead and inspire the kitchen storage market with their innovative designs, superior hardwoods, and exemplary craftsmanship.</p> <div class="centerImage"> <img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/jkadams/jk-adams1.jpg" width="621" height="160"><div class="imageCaption">Today, J.K. Adams continues to provide innovative designs, superior hardwoods, and high-quality craftsmanship.</div></div> <h4>J.K. Adams: Over 65 Years of New England Yankee Craftsmanship</h4> <div class="rightImage"> <img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/jkadams/jk-adams3.jpg" width="200" height="238"> </div> <div class="leftImage"> <img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/jkadams/jk-adams2.jpg" width="200" height="179"> </div> <div class="leftImage"> <img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/jkadams/jk-adams4.jpg" width="200" height="164"> </div> <p>Some of the world's finest woodworkers can be found in New England. The rich heritage and folklore of the great Yankee Woodworker is as well known today as it was hundreds of years ago, and the craft has been handed down through the generations. J.K. Adams' success is certainly attributable to the early Vermonters employed by the company while in its infancy who brought forth the techniques and quality craftsmanship that could only come from generations of shared knowledge and experience.</p> <p>The J.K. Adams factory has been at the same location since the beginning. As many as three generations of families have relied on J.K. Adams to provide for their families. Located in a rural area of Vermont, J.K. Adams remains one of the largest employers in the area and is an important pillar of support for the local community.</p> <p>J.K. Adams has always used the creativity and skill of their workforce in developing new products, and today J.K. Adams continues its New England craftsmanship with a wide variety of cutting boards, as well as wooden salad bowls, kitchen islands, and slate serving trays. And at the J.K. Adams factory, you'll find future generations of woodworkers building upon the traditions begun over 65 years ago.</p> <p>Cutting boards and other products by J.K Adams are made in the North America.</p> <div class="break"></div> <div class="rightImage"> <img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/jkadams/jk-adams-logo.jpg" width="300" height="75"><br/><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/jkadams/jk-adams-logo2.jpg" width="200" height="117"> </div> <h5>About J.K. Adams' Logo</h5> <p>In colonial New England, three strokes of a broad ax were used to mark the finest trees in the forest for the Queens' Navy shipmasts. The broad arrow was adopted as our logo because it symbolizes the exceptional quality of wood that goes into our products.</p> <h4>J.K. Adams' Company History</h4> <ul> <li>Started over 65 years ago in a small garage in Dorset, Vermont</li> <li>Cooper family purchased business from founder Josiah K. Adams in 1949</li> <li>Began with the Speedy Racer toy, and then followed by manufacturing drafting and surveying tables, Kiwi shoe groomers, gifts, and furniture</li> <li>Now the leading supplier of wooden storage and food preparation products for the specialty housewares industry</li> </ul> <div class="two-third-col"> <h4>Our Wood</h4> <ul> <li>Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Alder, Ash, and Hickory</li> <li>Either from New England or other North American sources</li> <li>Renewable and sustainable</li> <li>Hard and durable, yet forgiving to knife edges</li> </ul> <h4>Wood Grains</h4> <h5>End Grain</h5> <ul> <li>Prized for look and longest wear</li> <li>Identifiable by small pieces put together</li> <li>Board usually thick and heavy</li> <li>Many pieces, lots of glue joints, cracking can be a problem</li> </ul> <h5>Edge Grain</h5> <ul> <li>Most common in cutting boards</li> <li>Moderate grain pattern</li> <li>Stable with minimum glue joints</li> </ul> <h4>Why Choose a Wood Cutting Board?</h4> <p>Wood is naturally anti-bacterial, and any bacteria left on the board will actually lessen in time versus multiplying on a plastic cutting board. A wooden board will also be more gentle on your knife's edge, and it just feels and sounds better under a knife.</p> <h4>Caring for Your J.K. Adams Cutting Board</h4> <p>Wash by hand in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly, and oil frequently with mineral oil to help give it an optimal appearance. Do not soak, microwave, freeze, or put in the dishwasher. For removing stains, you can use a weak bleach-and-water solution or a combination of lemon juice and salt. Be sure to rinse and wipe with mineral oil afterward. Additionally, the surface can be sanded to make the board look like new--although a board with wear will add character to your kitchen. For storage, keep the board away from strong sunlight as avoiding UV rays will reduce the risk of fading.</p> </div> <div class="third-col last"> <h4>Environmental Responsibilities</h4> <ul> <li>We only purchase lumber from a select few suppliers who we are confident practice sustainable forestry practices</li> <li>Vermont forests are growing faster than they are being harvested</li> <li>J.K.

Made of solid maple with edge-grain construction for durability, the round-shaped cutting board comes with four wooden feet, slightly rounded edges, and a smooth work surface. The finely crafted board, which measures 12 inches in diameter and is 1.5 inches thick, works well for a variety of food-prep tasks--including chopping meat, slicing and dicing fruits and vegetables, or mincing fresh herbs.</p> <div class="three-fourth-col"> <div class="leftImage" style="width:300px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B00063QBM2-factory_t.jpg" width="300" height="214" /> <div class="imageCaption">John Boos & Company circa 1900.</div></div> <h4>The History of John Boos & Co</h4> <p>In business since 1887, John Boos & Co. is the oldest industry in South Central Illinois. Founder, Conrad Boos Sr. named the business after his son, John and for years, worked out of a blacksmith shop in Effingham. The blacksmith used a Sycamore tree placed on three legs to straighten horseshoes. The wooden block absorbed the shock of the hammer. In 1890, a local butcher realized the block could be used for cutting meat, and had one made. The word spread to surrounding small towns and cities and by 1911, John Boos was shipping from coast to coast.</p> <div class="rightImage" style="width:234px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B00063QBM2-Illinois_t.jpg" width="234" height="300" /></div> <p>In 1956, John Boos began to sell some of their products for home use. Today, John Boos cutting boards are found in hotels and restaurant kitchens, culinary schools, and on televised cooking shows. The old craftsmen work ethic is still around at John Boos, with a few changes.Premium Hard Rock Maple lumber from the surrounding Mid-West and Northern States is used in place of Sycamore lumber. And John Boos automation has replaced much of the older equipment with the exception of the 1942 block press which is very much in use today.</p> <p>John Boos & Co. utilizes 100% of their raw material to benefit the manufacturing processes. The smallest lumber scraps are transformed into sawdust and used to generate electricity and create steam to fuel the boilers.</p> <div class="leftImage" style="width:200px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B00063QBM2-AG_t.jpg" width="200" height="300" /> </div><h5>The Early Years</h5> <p>In 1892 the Boos family sold interest in the company to the Gravenhorst family. In 1895 the building burned and was rebuilt. In 1899 they moved to the present site of 315 South First Street for more space. </p> <p>In 1920, they added extra buildings and kilns.. By the 1940s, butcher blocks were found in every restaurant, food store and butcher shop in America.</p> <h5>Last Half of the Century</h5> <p>Following WWII, the company added a dry kiln, increased its office space, and added manufacturing space. The shipping docks were enlarged while warehousing space and new products were added.</p> <div class="rightImage"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B00063QBM2-longblock_t.jpg" width="350" height="202" /> </div> <p>The company continued expanding through the 60s and '70s with the growth of its metal table market with synthetic tops, stainless-steel tops, or maple tops. Even though the government was tough on wood products through the 1970s and '80s, the company continued to grow with its new line of BDL store fixtures, park benches, and other butcher block furniture.</p> <h5>Current Products & Markets</h5> <p>The wood and metal products are listed with the National Sanitation Foundation, the leader in sanitation agencies for approving equipment to be installed in foodservice and supermarket operations. The products must have approval of various sanitation agencies in order to be accepted by the industry.</p> <p>John Boos & Co. Cucina butcher blocks and cutting boards are used by celebrity chefs throughout the USA, including Charlie Trotter, Ming Tsai, Paul Kahan, Susan Spicer, Mary Sue Milliken, and Susan Feninger. In addition, chef?s featured on "The Food Network", such as Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse, prepare meals every day on John Boos cutting boards. In 1994, we were we were 1 of 22 companies awarded the Gold Medal for Excellence in Foodservice Equipment by the Chefs of America at a ceremony conducted at Carnegie Hall in NYC.</p> <h4>John Boos & Company Today</h4> <p>The company currently occupies approximately 150,000 square feet in Effingham, IL and approximately 65,000 square feet in Philipsburg, PA and Suring, WI. The company?s four dry kilns dry up to 210,000 board feet of lumber on a continual basis. Most of the hardwoods used for manufacturing are shipped from the Great Lakes, while the stainless steel comes from warehouses and distribution centers in Chicago, Indianapolis, and St. Louis.</p> </div><div class="fourth-col last"> <h4>Care and Maintenance</h4> <h5>Keeping Your Board Sanitized</h5> <p>Wash your John Boos cutting board with hot soapy water after each use and dry it with a clean towel or let it air dry. For further sanitation, the board can be rinsed with a vinegar or chlorine bleach solution. (1 teaspoon bleach to one quart of water/5-to-1 ratio of vinegar to water) Do not soak the board in water--this will damage the wood. Wood cutting boards are NOT dishwasher-safe.</p> <h5>Maintaining Your Board</h5> <p>Oil your cutting board on all surfaces every 3-4 weeks. The Boos block cream finish with beeswax (included with the board) will protect and prolong the board?s life. We recommend using John Boos Mystery Oil and/or Boos Block Cream with Beeswax.</p> <h5>Research: Plastic vs. Wooden Cutting Boards</h5> <p>Led by Dean O. Cliver, Ph.D, a research team compared plastic and wooden cutting boards to find out how to best disinfect wooden cutting boards from bacteria. They found that disease bacteria were not recoverable from both new and older knife-scarred wooden surfaces in a short time after they were applied, unless very large numbers were used. They found that while new plastic surfaces allowed the bacteria to persist, they were easily cleaned and disinfected. However, they found that older, knife-scarred plastic surfaces were impossible to clean and disinfect manually, especially when food residues such as chicken fat were present. Further, they found that if a sharp knife is used to cut into the work surfaces after used plastic or wood has been contaminated with bacteria and cleaned manually, more bacteria are recovered from the plastic surface than from the wood surface.</p> <p>The research team has no commercial relationships to John Boos or any other company making cutting boards. They believe, on the basis of their published and to-be-published research that food can be prepared safely on wooden cutting surfaces and that plastic cutting surfaces present some disadvantages. In conclusion, they believe their research shows evidence that wooden cutting boards are not a hazard to human health, but plastic cutting boards may be.</p> </div></div> read more

Adams Kangaroo knife block was launched in 1980--the first-ever slanted knife block, and still the best.</p> <p>Recognizing the many opportunities to improve kitchen storage, J.K. Adams introduced the revolving "carousel" spice rack in 1982 followed by countless other well-designed storage products in the years since, including the popular in-drawer knife tray in 1994, a space-saving alternative to the knife block that offers the same safety and blade protection.</p> <p>In 2011, J.K.
