All products are treated with a food-safe hard oil based on linseed oil and supplied pre-oiled once. For further care, we recommend that you rub the cutting boards thinly with your trusted cooking oil at
regular intervals and remove any excess with a cotton rag. Otherwise the boards can be washed, scrubbed and brushed. But please don ́t put it in the dishwasher. The damp boards should always be set up to dry so that they can dry evenly on both sides.
The material oak
Oak is a hard wood, which develops an antibacterial effect by its high tannic acid portion. This does not mean that these boards are self-cleaning. However, it does mean that oak is an excellent material for cutting and serving boards, as the tannic acid makes the boards germ-free within a few hours after cleaning and therefore very suitable in combination with food. Another aspect should be mentioned in connection with tannic acid: Steel in combination with moisture leaves irreversible black discolorations on the oak. For example, leaving a non-rusting knive or a metal cookie cutter on the wet oak board would leave a black wreath after some time. However, this does not occur inconjunction with stainless steel.
