When You Receive Your Board
Your TAZ board is made from all natural hard woods, and will last a lifetime as long as it is properly cared for. Wood is alive, and moves and shifts with the humidity and temperature, so your board needs at least 24 hours to adjust to your kitchen’s atmosphere before using.
Unwrap your board and follow board care instructions below before first use.
Please note: You may notice some color transfer onto your paper towels. Do not be concerned. This is simply the natural wood pigment, which is completely non-toxic and food-safe, and will diminish over time.
How To Clean and Oil a Wooden Cutting Board
Give your board a light scrub on both sides with warm soapy water. (A quick wipe down with a damp rag will suffice if used to slice bread or chop vegetables.) Dry immediately and thoroughly with a towel.
Apply food grade mineral oil—we recommend Bumblechutes Wood Conditioner—with a clean soft cloth or paper towel. Allow the oil to soak in for 24 hours, then wipe clean. Repeat 3-4 times/year, or as needed.
