Australian Cutting Boards Frequently Asked Questions. 

If you can’t find the answer to your question, feel free to contact us.  

Answer: You will know when your board is dried out when your food starts to stain your board. It is time to oil it with grapeseed oil. Read how to take care of your cutting board here.

  • For everyday use, your chopping board can be washed in the sink with soapy water (detergent).
  • Your board MUST be stored upright on it’s edge. Let the board stand upright on the dish drainer, or standing upright against a wall or special rack. You can also hang it up by the hole, if it has one.
  • Leaving the board flat while wet, will cause problems with mould and cupping. 
  • Because the cutting board is one piece of timber, it needs to dry evenly on both sides.
  • If cupping (warping) does occur, One way to fix the issue is to lay the cupping side up with a very damp cloth on the board. This helps to add moisture to the timber and stretch the cupping side back out.
  • Oiling your board every couple of months, has many benefits.  Even though cleaning your board with detergent is essential, it does tend to dry out your board. Regularly oiling your cutting board is required to keep the timber supple.
  • Your board will also dry much quicker, either by hanging or safely sitting it in the draining rack. Also, a barrier of oil, will not let water penetrate and soak the whole board, meaning it will dry quicker.
  • Food will not stain or stick to your board. Garlic, onion,  turmeric, mushrooms etc will not stain or leave an odour in the boards.
  • The only oil that will not go rancid is Grapeseed oil. Therefore we highly recommend it to oil your chopping board.
  • This food grade oil, can be obtained from your local supermarket. It has no smell and no taste.

Answer: A cutting board made from Camphor Laurel which is a semi-hardwood with a tight grain will reduce scoring of the board with your knifes. The tight grain also repels dirt and moisture. These boards are very durable.

Pictures below show my cutting board which I have been using constantly for one year.

To begin the process of restoring it back to its original condition, Stuart put 40 grit sandpaper on his orbital sander and proceeded to remove the layer of oil which had built up.

He followed that process with 120 grit sandpaper on the orbital sander to smooth it out.

Next, soak it on both sides with lots of Grapeseed Oil. The results are fantastic!

  2. Our boards are handmade from a single block of wood meaning there are no joint lines to harbor bacteria.
  3. Our kiln dried timber process ensures the cutting boards are suitable for safe use as a chopping board or serving board.

Frequently asked questions about how to oil a cutting board

The pictures above show the changes in appearance with some oil.

For the strawberry stains I did scour it with detergent before placing in the sun to dry.

The marks were still on it, but once the oil was applied, it soaked into the board making the strawberry juice disappear.
