A wooden cutting board is a sustainable choice, it’s gentle on the knife and durable in use. With proper attention and maintenance, wood can last for years of active use. Wash with dish soap and water, dry in upright position. Depending on usage a wooden cutting board needs to be oiled 4- 6 times a year with paraffin- or poppyseed oil. A worn out board can be sanded to bring back its smooth surface.
