How do I care for my olive wood chopping board?

To keep your olive wood chopping board in top condition, it’s important to oil it regularly. This will help to protect the wood and keep it looking its best. We recommend using food-safe mineral oil or olive oil, applied with a clean cloth. Just be sure not to use too much oil, as this can make the board slippery.

When you’re not using it, store your olive wood chopping board in a cool, dry place. And if it starts to look dry or dull, simply give it a quick rub with some oil to renew the lustre.

With proper care, your olive wood chopping board will last for many years to come! So if you’re looking for a high-quality, durable and beautiful cutting surface, we highly recommend giving one a try.
