After less than two years my 15”x20”x2.5” maple Boos Block developed two cracks on one side. Lucky for me SLT refunded my money no questions asked, even though I was outside of the Boos warranty.
Now I question buying a Boos again. I took great care of it, never allowed it to remain damp, oiled it frequently. . .and enjoyed using it. (And it was very beautiful - points!)
This was discussed on the other site but perhaps there are folks on HO w/new perspectives.
I would like something large and easy on the blade edge. Not concerned about cleanliness, I have an inexpensive plastic mat for meat.
Are there other makers of end-grain boards you recommend? Anyone have any thoughts about why my board failed? Alternative products? (The Boos met my needs perfectly. So sad it failed.)
