About the Material
Maple wood is one of the most popular wood options for cutting boards. Known for its antimicrobial properties, it prevents bacterial growth and is a safe and sanitary option for your kitchen prep. A sustainable and renewable material, maple wood also makes an aesthetically-pleasing addition to any kitchen thanks to its light color and natural grain marks.
Use & Care
To clean your maple wood cutting board use a sponge and dish soap to scrub your board. Always hand wash your cutting board and never submerge it in water or placing it in the dishwasher because it'll cause the board to warp or crack, or both.
Rinse the board and dry it thoroughly with a kitchen/dish towel. Let it stand upright on your counter and let it dry completely before storing it. You want to avoid residual water from pooling as this can lead to cracks on the board.
After frequent washing, your maple wood cutting board will dry out, and to properly maintain your cutting board you need to apply a generous amount of food safe mineral oil on your board. Leave the board overnight to allow the oil to absorb into the wood, and wipe off any excess oil the next day.
Properly maintaining your board will help create a protective barrier against moisture to make it less likely to warp or crack. It is recommended to apply oil on your board once a month, but it can vary depending on how often you use it.
How can you tell if your board is properly oiled? if you sprinkle water on your board it's supposed to bead up. If not, your board needs some more mineral oil.
