Kitchen Proper w/ John Boos + [Giveaway]


As a frequent cook and user of quality butcher blocks, one style that I had not tried was a board with a stand. When cooking in the kitchen, I usually have my Smartphone nearby if I am referring to old recipes or references but it can be a hassle going back and forth.  Also, having to constantly wash your hands in-between the process if you need to double-check a recipe is not entirely ideal, time-wise. 

During the holidays with many cooks in the kitchen, especially when my family comes together, sometimes having your own little space for cutting, slicing and chopping is necessary 

I am happy to be partnering with John Boos & Co. again, and this feature is quite special for the holiday season upon us. What's more, their l-Block Cutting Board and Stand remedies my “board/stand combo” issue. It’s all-in-one! I know, brilliant!  

The l-Block allows you to browse recipes on your iPad or tablet without the worry of getting flour on it or messing up the screen from prepping ingredients. This board bundle comes with 1 cutting board, 1 stand and 3 protective smart sleeves (w/finger touch sensitivity ignited!) This is conveniently made to fit tablet devices so it's ideal. Details: Edge-grain board with a cream finish and comes with grip handles. Approx. 12" x 4" x 1.5" (30.5cm x 10cm x 3.8cm) 

The space-saving l-Block conveniently fits in the smallest flat or urban-chic home without compromising on quality. As you know from my previous reviews, I love different butcher blocks and cutting boards for different reasons, and this particular John Boos l-Block board did not disappoint!  

I like how compact it is, and I don’t need to whip out my large cutting board for veggies yet it’s large enough to slice and chop whatever my epicurean heart desires. (*Get tips on different wood styles and how I clean my boards here.)
