How should I take care of my wood cutting boards?Updated 3 months ago

After each use, it's crucial to clean your cutting board thoroughly with hot water and soap to remove any food particles. Utilize a brush, sponge, or rag for effective cleaning. Ensure the board is completely dry by wiping it with a clean towel and allowing it to air dry.

Once dry, we discuss the importance of oiling the board regularly to protect it from moisture and prevent issues like drying out, cracking, or warping. Using a food-grade oil such as mineral or coconut oil, generously apply it with a clean cloth, ensuring full penetration into the wood.

To maintain the wood's health and smoothness, we recommend applying a thin layer of board wax. The frequency of wax application depends on the board's usage and washing frequency. Buff in the wax across the entire surface, removing any excess to avoid haziness. Allow the wax to dry for an hour or two before storing the cutting board.

By following these maintenance techniques, you can ensure your cutting board remains in excellent condition for years to come, making food preparation a breeze.
