A WAY TO WIN: Our Rectangle Edge Grain Cutting board is spacious enough when trimming big roasts or slicing long bunches of leafy greens. It is heavy enough for providing stability when cutting, but still easy to pick up when cleaning is needed. The added hand grips will help you to easily move from kitchen to table. Our Traditional Collection boards are reversible, so you will have two smooth surfaces to prep the whole recipe
THE BEST WOOD: A board’s durability is related to the type of wood it’s made of. Teak is a tropical wood with a high oil content that acts as a water repellent. Teak’s medium hardness provides a luxurious cutting experience while keeps your knives sharp. Teak is easy to maintain: with only few oil drops your boards will look like new again.
TRULY ECO-FRIENDLY: We are passionately committed with the environment, all the teak wood we use comes from sustainable forests.
Maintaining a cutting board is a quick and easy task that will keep your board sanitary, looking new and extend the life of your board.
Wash your cutting board (DO NOT SOAK) with soap and warm water and scrub well. The volume of water and mechanical scrubbing is more important than soap in flushing bacteria and other food particles off the board. After washing the cutting board, dry immediately with a towel and let it air dry standing up or on a raised rack with air flow.
- Put the board in the dishwasher. The heat and water will warp and splinter the wood AND void warranties from most manufacturers. Only plastic, composite or glass boards can go into the dishwasher.
- Dunk or let the board in stand in water. The wood will absorb water and potentially warp.
- Use bleach. This will stain the wood and/or excessively dry the wood.
- Put a wet board flat to dry. If the board dries on one side, it will cause the wood to warp.
If your board has stains or smells, you can use lemon juice or white vinegar directly on the area. The acid in these liquids will neutralise the organic material or fats causing the problem.
Once your cutting board is thoroughly dry, apply “Fire Works cutting board oil” directly onto the surface of the board. Be generous with the application, especially if the wood is dry or you just purchased the cutting board or butcher block. You want the surface to be dripping wet on all sides and we recommend using a non-absorbing material or new paint brush to spread the oil (try not to soak up the oil), as using your hands may lead to accidental splinters. Most importantly, let the oil soak into the cutting board for as long as possible; at least a few hours or overnight if possible.
Let your cutting board sit on a wire rack or upright to dry when done. If you are restoring or seasoning an old, dry or new cutting board, you may wish to repeat this process two more times, to ensure your cutting board is completely seasoned.
We recommended you oil your cutting board every month or when dry to the touch.
