Care of Cutting Boards and Charcuterie Boards

All cutting boards and charcuterie boards come finished with mineral oil.  End grain boards will take more of a beating than long grain boards.  The end grain is more self healing.  

Long grain boards will eventually show knife marks, which is quite all right.  If you want to repair, sand with 220 grit sandpaper and refinish with mineral oil.  

You can use multiple types of food grade oils, even oils mixed with beeswax.  However, stay away from cooking oils for treatment.  They eventually become rancid and your cutting board will start to smell.

Wash your board with dish soap and water and immediately dry.  Do not soak boards, or allow to remain wet.  If your board does not have rubber feet, I recommend storing upright for proper air circulation.  

Re-oil your boards as needed.  Cutting boards can be used unfinished, so this is not a necessity, just a recommendation for longevity.

Failure to comply with these recommendations can result in damage to your board.  All of our boards are real wood, and are subject to movement and warpage.  To prevent any potential problems take care of your new board.

If your board warps or cups slightly, wet one side with water and lay flat.  The warping should subside.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me through email.

 


Care of Coasters

Coasters don't require much care.  They either come unfinished, or finished in oil.  Feel free to treat with mineral oil for a rich deep hue.  Unfinished coasters will absorb more liquids, ensuring they are more effective at doing their job.  

If you're the type of person that's really rough with your coasters, and damage them beyond repair....feel free to contact me.  I'd be happy to sell you another set!
