The Pro Prep Block is a chef's dream, offering a four-inch thick Northern hard rock maple butcher block top, lower storage shelf, two stainless steel towel holders, and optional locking caster wheels--all in one beautiful package. The butcher block surface stands at 36 inches, an ideal height for food preparation. The decorative under-shelf is made of individual maple slats and is a perfect place to store and display larger kitchen items. The stainless steel towel bars are great for hanging dishrags and kitchen towels; they also double as handles to use when moving the Pro Prep Block. You can add a sliding maple utensil drawer, perfect for stowing your favorite kitchen tools, and locking caster wheels, which let you move the Pro Prep Block easily and keep it securely in place when positioned.
The Pro Prep Block features a four-inch thick maple butcher block top with end-grain construction. Compared to other butcher block surfaces, the end-grain work surface is harder, more durable and much easier easy on knives; during cutting or chopping, the end grain wood fibers absorb the impact of the blade, which keeps knives sharper longer. The malleable and forgiving end grain surface is resistant to nicks and gouges, which prevents bacteria from entering the wood, keeps the board looking new longer and increases its longevity. The work surface is featured with the standard Boos Block Cream Finish with Beeswax, to seal and protect the wood. The Boos block cream penetrates deeply into the grains of the wood, leaving a silky wax barrier to lock moisture in, and allows your board to be used as a cutting surface.
