Boos’ Cucina Laforza in Cherry Delivers the Chic Look of Sophistication
Here’s a butcher block and steel stand combination that will make a stunning addition to your kitchen or dining area. It features a hefty 6” thick cherry end-grain butcher block on brushed, stainless steel. You’ll not find another beautiful and functional piece of furniture that packs as much punch per square foot of floor space. The Laforza's footprint is a mere 24” x 24”. It stands 35.5” tall.
Its Cherry Butcher Block Top Adds Warmth and Flair
This premium quality American cherry butcher block offers a strong, sturdy and stable surface for such cooking chores as carving roasts or slicing meat, cheese or fruit, or dicing vegetables. It’s 6” thick and made in end-grain style, so as hardy as they come – able to withstand even rigorous chopping or pounding. End-grain boards are tough because they “go with the grain.” Pieces of wood are arranged standing up, rather than lying down, as in the case of edge or blended grain boards. Not only does this technique maximize board strength, it also produces a cutting surface that’s resilient, so less likely to suffer nicks and gouges. Paradoxically, end-grain surfaces are also easier on knives, since blades slice in between the fibers of wooden ends, not through them.
Boos Block Board Cream Leaves a Protective Barrier and a Silky Feel
Boos Board Cream combines natural beeswax with mineral oil. The oil penetrates the grains of the wood and the beeswax leaves a slick barrier that helps the wood retain moisture. Unfortunately, wood has a tendency to lose moisture, so it’s subject to drying and cracking. To combat this, you’ll need to apply oil or cream to your block about once a month. We recommend Boos Mystery Oil or Board Cream. For best results, use both products in a one-two combination maintenance regimen.
Stainless Steel Adds a Contemporary Touch to Timeless Wood
Wood has always and will always fit exquisitely into cooking and dining settings. It's an excellent surface for food preparation and consumption, provided it’s kept sanitary. In addition, wood conveys warmth and brings natural beauty inside the home. In some respects, stainless steel is even superior to wood, given its durability, resistance to heat and sanitary advantages, but steel imparts an altogether different feel. It’s cool to the touch and to the eye, and in general, connotes a more modern feel than does wood. So in combination, wood on brushed stainless steel is bold. It grabs our attention and provides an exceptionally sturdy foundation. In this case the stainless steel is food service grade 300 Series 18/8, designed to resist staining and rusting. The stand includes adjustable feet, but you have the option of equipping your Laforza with locking caster wheels.
