Yes. Aprox 50 % of product that we sell is untreaded. We recommend to use vegetable kitchen oil before first use and later oil board often when it looks dried. Reason why people choose untreaded product is mainly: look and avoiding cost.

WHY OAK CUTTING BOARDS BECOMED ROUGH AFTER FIRST CONTACT WITH WATER? 

Oak cutting board after first wash get FIBER STANDING EFFECT. 

IS IT NORMAL?

Yes. It happens allways after first wash of product made out of oak and all others long-fiber species of wood (ash, american walnut) when board raw or oiled with vegetable oil. No issue with Beech.

 

HOW TO SOLVE IT?

 

ARE YOU USER?

Wash the board first time for 3-4 minutes with sharp sponge and effect will disappear. Later continue oiling board with vegetable oil when you see that the board looks dried. 

 

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUR VIDEO FOR WITH FIRST WASH TOUTORIAL. We show here how to do it. 

ARE YOU SELLER?

SOLUTION 1.  Instruct the customer that effect is normal and to wash board first time for longer period of time (3-4min) and then oil with cooking oil

SOLUTION 2. Order HARD WAX coating. Hard wax makes kind of protection film on the surface of the wood. Hard wax will be washed out after couple whashing and fibers will stands anyways but not so rapidly. Than instruct cutomer to oil often with cooking oil.

Hard wax is OK for contact with food.

Color of oak is a not so reach as vegetable oil. 

Hard wax coating do not leave marks on paper so you can put sleeve or belyband directly to the wood. 

For HOME USERS – hardwax is not required. Vegetable oil makes sufficient  cutting board protection.

During the process sugars (cellulose)  in the wood brakes into smaller molecules. This reaction makes wood resistant to mold, water and also change wood color into shades from red to dark brown.
