For the American standard in kitchenware, look no further than the John Boos Factory Showroom & Outlet in Effingham, Illinois. The long-standing maker of classic butcher blocks recently relocated to a new, expanded home. Visitors will find everything from signature end-grain tables and utility carts to bowls and cutting boards.

The majority of products are made with maple, cherry or walnut; premium olive wood items are also available. Shop the showroom to find a wide selection of goods to outfit any kitchen, including outlet store prices on factory seconds. A new stainless steel section features tables, racks, stools and more.

Rada Cutlery rounds out the collection of functional and stylish utensils, along with gift packs perfect for the holidays. The shop now also has the ability to personalize items while you wait, thanks to on-site specialist Hint’s Laser Engraving.
