The Cucina Laforza Is Stunning, Either as a Standalone Butcher Block or Mounted atop a Sleek, Steel Frame
Meaning kitchen strength or force in English, Cucina Laforza is the perfect name for this hefty butcher block with or without its stainless steel base. What a beautiful way to add power and elegance to your kitchen! It’s available as either a stationary or portable unit.
6” Thick End-Grain Style Maple Butcher Block
This sturdy block made of the finest hard rock maple, is end-grain style. That means that the ends of wood strips form the block’s surface. When a knife cuts into it, millions of wood fibers absorb the blade’s edge. So knives dull less quickly and the block’s fibrous surface is less likely to suffer unsightly nicks and gouges. The Cucina Laforza block is 24 inches square and 6 inches thick. It alone weighs over 100 pounds!
Optional Foodservice-Grade Stainless Steel Base
Don’t worry; the optional stainless steel base that supports this monster block is up to the task. It’s made of 300 Series 18/8 food service grade stainless steel that is commonly used in making food processing equipment. It resists stains and rusting. The base includes a lower shelf that’s a convenient and sturdy place to store ingredients, pots and pans or other cooking equipment and supplies. The feet of the frame are adjustable so you can level it on any surface. If you’d like the convenience of mobility, simply add caster wheels to your custom configuration.
Boos Block Board Cream Replenishes and Locks in Moisture
The Cucina Laforza block comes with a silky, wax-like finish that locks in moisture and protects the block’s surface. Boos applies their own natural formula to achieve this effect. To protect and maintain the wood, you’ll need to apply board oil or cream every 3 or 4 weeks. Either will penetrate into the wood’s grain and help prolong its life. For this reason we recommend adding oil or cream to your order.
