Wood is a natural product, therefore every board will have its own unique grain and color. It will not be identical but it will be similar. #oneofakind
No we do not offer custom design and sizes at this time.
Your board comes oiled and ready to use. Just give it a quick wash and it’s ready for action! Like all wood cutting boards, regular oiling with a food-grade mineral oil is required to maintain your board.
Yes. All wood cutting boards will show knife marks as wood is a natural material. However, knife marks are a good sign! You should really worry if you don't have knife marks on a cutting board, since that would mean the board is much harder than your knife’s edge, something you would experience with a glass, stone or even bamboo cutting boards which can dull your knives incredibly fast.
Many people forget about the protection of their knives when purchasing a cutting board, and instead focus on keeping their countertop or table safe. Wood cutting boards are the only durable material that will protect both knife and countertop as you prepare meals. While wood cutting boards will show various marks overtime, periodically treating it with food-grade mineral oil will help those marks add character to the board and blend into the natural grain and color of the wood.
No we do not offer custom laser engraving, however, we’ve had many customers whom have purchased our boards and taken it to a local shop to get engraved. We’ve seen photos and the results come out great!
No, you should not. Serrated knives will terribly beat up almost any good wood cutting board. If you’re going to use a serrated knife for bread, do it on a cheap plastic or bamboo board that you don’t mind throwing out when it gets very scarred up. One way to think of it is that the design of the serrated edge is similar to that of a "saw", which is specifically designed to cut very deeply into wood. Stick to a straight edge blade and you’ll enjoy many years of use with your cutting board.
Your board gets thirsty just like you do! Oiling your cutting board is vital to preserving the rich natural colors of the wood, and to prevent unwanted moisture, such as bacteria, from soaking into the board. This also helps to protect your board from drying out which can lead to cracking. #crackiswack
It depends on how frequently you use your board. If you use the board everyday, you may want to oil it every two weeks. If you only use the board a few times a week. We suggest you oil it at least once a month or as soon as it appears to look dry.
Think of your board like your hands. The more often you wash your hands, the dryer it gets. When your hands get too dry, your skin may start to crack. You want to oil your board before the cracking happens.
A food-grade mineral oil or food-grade beeswax.
No you shouldn’t. Vegetable-based oils contain various organic substances like olives, nuts, seeds, etc. These types of oils are high in fat and once oxidized, can become rancid which can transfer an unpleasant smell into the wood.
Yes, all of our boards come pre-finished, so you will not need to oil it immediately. Just give a light wash with soap before using.
No, wood products should never be placed in the dishwasher. This will ruin the board and cause the board to crack and warp. Instead, hand wash with warm, soapy water and towel dry then prop the board up to allow it to fully air dry. Full care instructions can be found here.
Simple! Scrub with salt and lemon. Sprinkle coarse salt liberally over the board, then slice a lemon in half and use it to rub the salt into the board, squeezing juice onto the board as you go, and you’ll be left with a great smelling board. The salt also acts as an abrasive to lift stains out (like beet juice) and can also kill bacteria in the process. Use a clean cloth towel to remove excess liquid or let the board air dry by standing it upright.
The best way to store this board, if you have the counter space, is standing up on your counter. You can lean it on a wall or on your backsplash. If you do not have the counter space to store it, it is very important to make sure you completely dry the board with a clean kitchen towel after washing and then let it air dry for a few hours prior to storing it inside a cabinet or pantry space. Because wood does absorb water and moisture, keeping it in an open area with airflow is best to make sure the board does not maintain any moisture which can lead to bacteria growth.
