Teak is a heavy, hard and sturdy type of wood. With a high content of natural oils, teak is resistant to rot and fungus—making it an ideal material choice for everyday household articles.
After use, we recommend washing both sides of the cutting board. To keep the board straight and with a similar color on both sides, let it dry off in an upright position. This product is not suitable for dishwasher. Do not dry it on a hot element as this can cause cracks on the surface.
When you receive your new cutting board, you might find it stained or greasy, this comes from the oil finish we applied to the board before wrapping it. The stains are accumulations of coloring matter and will soon disappear as the board is exposed to light and air. In the beginning, the oil may extract some of the coloring matter which can leave stains on a light surface.
Before using your cutting board for the first time, please make sure to clean it with soapy water.
The teak has been treated with food safe oil to improve its resistance. Therefore, we recommend that you treat the wood regularly with a suitable oil (e.g., worktop oil) to preserve the glow and resistance. If the product is not oiled continuously, the surface may change color over time and become silvery grey.
