Wood as a Living Organism

Your cheese or cutting board is a living, breathing, moving organism.  Since your board is made of natural materials, it will be effected by the temperature and humidity of the environment that it is in.  These factors can cause wood and bamboo to “move” and slightly distort from their original shape. This is not considered a defect, but rather, a character trait of the material.

Care Guidelines

When your board appears dry, just simply apply a coat of mineral oil with a soft cloth or paper towel.  Apply oil liberally and let it absorb into the board for a few minutes. Wipe away any excess with a clean cloth or paper towel. This process will prevent the board from “drying out” and will keep it looking beautiful for many years. After using your board with food, simply rinse with mild soap and water. Never put your board in the dishwasher!
