Strong enough for heavy chopping and elegant enough for entertaining, these Walnut & Ash End-Grain Cutting Boards carry their weight in your kitchen. The exposed wood end grain not only shows off the natural beauty of the wood, it also absorbs the impact of the knife keeping your blades sharper, longer. These boards are reversible for extended use and with their integrated handles extremely functional. Each board is made from kiln dried walnut and ash sourced from sustainable forests. Due to the nature of wood each board is unique and may differ slightly in tones and natural patterns to the picture.
Board size: Approximately 35cm X 24cm X 4cm

How to best care for your new cutting board:
First of all, DO NOT put you cutting board in the Dishwasher! Wood Cutting Boards dislike water and extreme heat so that means submerging it in water is off limits too. Here is what you should do instead:
- You can wipe your board off with soap and water, just make sure you dry it right away and make sure it is standing upright to dry. If you lie it flat the wet side may warp, and you do not want that. A great natural way to clean your board without any detergents is by using Lemon Juice or White Vinegar. The acid in these liquids breaks up and removes any organic residues left over on the surface.
- It is a good idea to oil your board frequently. This conditions the wood and keeps it from cracking or splintering. To oil your board properly first make sure it is completely dry. Then completely douse your board with oil – it should be dripping wet all around. After that, leave it to absorb as long as possible, ideally overnight and make sure you leave it upright, ideally on a wire rack for best effect. Make sure your Mineral Oil is FOOD GRADE, not the stuff from the hardware store that is intended for machines. You also want to avoid cooking oils like Olive or Walnut Oil as these will go rancid over time.
We hope your new board serves you for many happy years of cooking.
