Depending on how often you use your board, we would recommend oiling it regularly, about every second month. The best guide is when your board is looking pale, or dry, then it needs conditioning (oiling). Using a paper towel, apply a coat of vegetable oil to the board. Wipe off the excess oil and let the rest soak into your board over approx. 15-20 minutes. Then your board should be looking like new.
Over time and with regular use your board will become ‘scarred’ with fine cuts from your knife. However, these marks will make your board look better over time, and will blend together to make the board look aged and well-used. The cuts in the board will not harbour germs or bacteria as the fibres of the board ‘close over’ and seal off any bacteria, essentially killing it. This has been scientifically proven to occur. The best looking boards are the ones which are well used and have lots of character.
