Review Star RatingsBetter than expected
by: Paula Levy   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Berkley, MI      on: September 15, 2023
 I had been looking for an island to go in my new kitchen/new house. I researched for three weeks! Finally made the decision to purchase this island. It is perfect! Amazing quality! Copper is stunning! You can tell this is an expensive piece. If you are trying to decide on this island and hesitating because it is costly….take the plunge, it is worth it.

 Perfect island for a small space. A beautiful piece!

Review Star RatingsIT'S GRRRREAT!
by: Louise   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Urbana, IL      on: February 9, 2021
 It's pricey, but every inch is worth it. It's heavy (about 145 pounds) but it was a cinch to assemble, and it looks great in our space--we don't have a huge kitchen area. All around--a winner!

Review Star RatingsWorth the Wait!
by: Anne B Garvey   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Louisville, 21      on: January 28, 2021
 After scouring the internet and consulting with my brother who is a custom cabinet maker, we decided on this John Boos chopping block. It was a few weeks late due to a shortage of workers at the company related to the pandemic. But when it did arrive I assembled it (with very little help from my husband). It is a beautiful and hardworking addition to our newly remodeled kitchen. 5 stars all the way!!!

Review Star RatingsBeautiful and so useful.
by: Saralou   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Cary, NC      on: May 14, 2019
 The island is well constructed and arrived in perfect condition. So glad I spent a little more and have a quality kitchen island. Did I say it's beautiful? It is!

Review Star RatingsA quality piece of furniture
by: Robert Hornaday   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Baldwinsville, NY      on: January 2, 2019
 Although too early for a full evaluation, this John Boos rolling cart is craftsman-made, easy to assemble, well engineered and a beautiful, yet functional addition to our kitchen. It almost looks too good to cut on! We can easily roll it from its storage location in the breakfast/sunroom to the adjoining kitchen in just seconds when needed for food prep or carving. The only improvement I could suggest is a routed half-round channel around the perimeter to catch juice from roasted meat when carving.

Review Star RatingsBeautiful Kitchen Island
by: jon   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Naples, FL      on: April 2, 2018
 I'm using this John Boos prep table as a center island in my kitchen. It is a beautiful addition and will never be used as a cutting board but rather as a fine piece of furniture. In one word it's AWSOME!

Review Star RatingsBeautiful!
by: Rebecca Simonson   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Santa Rosa, CA      on: February 17, 2017
 Beautiful piece with such rich wood color. The copper plates add just the right touch. Easy to put together but very heavy. Very functional piece for a kitchen with limited counter space.

Review Star RatingsQuality!!
by: Sally Love   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Oxford, FL      on: January 31, 2017
 The quality is definitely there on this lovely butcher block island. I had order the wheels which made it higher than my counters and it didn't seem to work but once I removed them and dressed it up with pots and pans hanging from the copper hooks provided, it looked great!

Review Star RatingsWe love it!
by: D     from: -, CA      on: February 25, 2016
 This butcher block was purchased to complete a small renovation we did in our kitchen. We replaced a long and narrow drop-leaf maple table with it and it is absolutely beautiful! It gives the kitchen a modern look and adding the drawer gave us the extra storage we needed for our over abundance of utensils. We added a knob to the drawer and it looks great. We are extremely happy with our purchase and the great service we received from both Kitchen Source and John Boos.

Review Star Ratingsvery happy with my purchase
by: Sherry   ✔Verified Buyer      from: St. Joseph, Mi      on: February 11, 2016
 I purchased this chopping block table to be used as a center island table for my kitchen. I will be using it more as a surface to prep food rather than as a chopping block. It is a beautiful piece of art in my kitchen...I love it!!

Review Star RatingsBeautiful addition to my kitchen!

 I received my Boos table in good condition and that I absolutely LOVE it! It is a beautiful addition to my kitchen, its a beautiful piece of art. Thank You!

Review Star RatingsExcellent
by: Terry Collins   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Severna Park, Ma      on: May 26, 2015
 Found your site on John Boos site, as a retail seller. Called your 800 number rather than purchase online as I had some questions. The female CS rep was great, answered my questions, took my order, the Boos Cherry Pro Prep island was delivered in time, in perfect condition for a special anniversary gift. Will use your site again. Thanks.

Review Star RatingsIt's Fabulous
by: Linda Matrone   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Crystal River, FL      on: April 8, 2015
 I have always wanted a Butcher Block Island and am so pleased I finally bought one. This John Boos is absolutely gorgeous and a work of art that I hate to use it. Unfortunately I bought it for that purpose and will enjoy it for many years. Well made and it has received many compliments.

Ask a questionHi: I am looking for a prep table with a storage drawer and I love this one, but instead of the bottom shelf I prefer to be able to slide 2 stools under it. Is the shelf an option item that I don't have to use? Thanks - Susanb   - Asked about product JB-RN-PPB3624
 AnswerWe would not recommend using the Pro Prep Block without the shelf due to stability issues.
 0% of 0 people found this useful. Was this useful to you? Yes (0) | No (0)

Ask a questionare the tie bars necessary for the integrity of the cart? I would like to use it as a breakfast bar with counter height seats. The bottom shelf possibly for a foot rest. Looks like the tie bars would be in the way thank you   - Asked about product JB-RN-PPB3624
 AnswerAlthough this prep block is not intended as a breakfast bar, some assembly is required, so you can just not assemble the copper bars if you do not want to use them. It would not affect the integrity of the cart.

Ask a questionI see from a previous question that John Boos cuts down the height of the legs to accommodate casters. Will they cut down the height if I am Not getting casters?I need this to be shorter than standard. Thanks.   - Asked about product JB-RN-PPB3024
 AnswerUnfortunately, the way the base is designed, they cannot custom cut the legs. They will only cut the height down to accommodate the casters.

Ask a questionif I order this with the optional casters is the height still 36 inches. I checked the John Boos web page and this item has a separate part number with casters, so I'm assuming that it will still be 36 inches, but wanted to make sure. thanks. David   - Asked about product JB-RN-PPB3024
 AnswerYes, the height will remain the same as John Boos will cut the legs for the casters.
