An application of beeswax oil keeps the board’s surface well protected. The round chopping block includes finger slots for easy lifting, juice grooves to keep liquids from spilling over the sides onto your countertop, and rubber feet to keep it from moving as you butcher meats.

Chopping Block Uses

You can use your chopping block in a number of ways:

  • For quartering, chopping, deboning, and fileting meats
  • As a serving tray for a charcuterie or cheese board
  • As a decorative accent piece in your kitchen

When using your chopping block:

  • Do not expose it to excessive moisture for longer periods of time, as this could cause it to warp.
  • Do not use it as a hot plate, as this could cause it to dry out and eventually crack.

Chopping Block Cleaning

Wash your chopping block after each use. First, dislodge any larger food particles with a nylon bristled brush or sturdy dishcloth. For stubborn pieces of food, try using a flat, steel bench scraper or spatula. After you’ve removed any larger pieces of food, quickly and carefully wet the surface of the chopping block with warm to hot water, then place a little bit of soap on it. Scrub the board clean with a dish brush, dishcloth, or sponge, making sure to scrub the entire surface, including the edges and bottom. After scrubbing, rinse the chopping block clean, dry it with a dish towel, and place it on its side to dry for at least an hour.

When cleaning your chopping block, AVOID:

  • Using steel wool or a steel brush, as these items can damage the surface of your chopping block, creating space for unwanted germs to hide.
  • Putting your chopping block in the dishwasher, as this can warp and crack the wood.
  • Submerging your chopping block in water, as the wood can absorb water and warp.
  • Cleaning your chopping block with bleach, as this can stain and dry out the wood.
  • Laying your chopping flat on one side to dry, as this can cause the wood to warp.

Chopping Block Maintenance

You’ll want to regularly apply beeswax oil to your chopping block in order to ensure it lasts for years to come. The food-safe wood conditioner moisturizes wood, preventing your chopping block from becoming dry and brittle. It also keeps water and other liquids from absorbing into your chopping block, which can lead to unwanted bacteria and germs. Beeswax oil also adds a beautiful, polished finish.

To apply the beeswax oil to your chopping block, put a small amount of it onto a lint-free cleaning cloth, then rub it into the entire surface of the chopping block. Let the chopping block dry out on your countertop for an hour or so, allowing the oil to completely absorb into the wood before returning it to storage.

Note: As it acclimates to its environment, real wood has a tendency to move and shift. Minor warping or cracking of your chopping block is possible. This is not considered a defect.

Chopping Block Storage

We recommend storing your chopping block in a well ventilated area, preferably in a vertical position. Storing your chopping block vertically keeps water from building up underneath it and possibly causing it to warp. It also keeps dirt and dust from accumulating on the cutting surface while in storage.
