Butcher Block Countertops with Trivets are the perfect solution to keep your countertop safe from hot pots and pans. Integrated Trivets are composed of several routed channels in the butcher block countertop that hold multiple stainless steel cooling rods. The cooling rods are removable for easy cleaning and can be put in the dishwasher. The picture on the bottom shows one standard set of six trivets in a butcher block. The picture on the top is actually two rods taken from three sets of trivets to create that design. . Any Trivet design is available for Grothouse Butcher Block Countertops.
Butcher Block Countertops with Juice Grooves are often requested when the butcher block will be used for direct chopping and food preparation. Juice Grooves collect moisture from fruits, meats and vegetables. Another term for Juice Grooves is Blood Grooves. Juice Grooves help to avoid messes, such as drips of moistures onto the floor.
Butcher Block Countertops with Trash Holes increase the functionality of the food preparation area in the kitchen. Food scraps are quickly swiped into the trash hole for fast and easy cleaning of the food preparation area. Grothouse offers custom made steel lids as pictured or flush mount lids with flip up handles. Trash holes can also be crafted with a custom lid.
Custom carved Integrated Bowls can offer a secure place to keep items from rolling off Butcher Block Countertops, such as eggs or fruit. In addition, they can be used for an artful display. Integrated Bowls can be carved into any wood specie and are custom to a client’s specifications. You should consider the size of the bowl and what function you would like to use the bowl for.
