Looking After Chopping Boards

We sell a massive selection of chopping boards, some are universal, some are sink specific, but all require some care and attention to ensure their long lasting good looks and usefulness.

Wooden Chopping Boards

The dos with wooden chopping boards start with protecting the board, and whilst there are specialist oils out there, just occasionally rubbing in some cooking oil over the surface will go a long way to offering long lasting protection from liquid ingress. And when cleaning, boards should be wiped clean and dry of any water. When cleaning, use only washing up liquid and water, and do not use the abrasive side of a sponge. 

They should not be cleaned in a dishwasher on any cycle. They should not be left in direct sunlight, or near any direct heat source. Ultimately this will lead to dryness and will cause cracking. And you should not leave the chopping boards to soak when cleaning, and do not allow them to drip dry. Store in a well-ventilated position to ensure the surface remains dry. The chopping boards are suitable for use between the temperature range of 0°C - 100°C, but we do not recommend using them as a trivet utensil for hot dishes and pans.

Glass Chopping Boards

As with wooden chopping boards there are a number of things to remember for cleaning glass chopping boards. The best thing is that glass chopping boards are suitable for dishwasher use, so job done there. Other than that, clean with soapy and water, and the soft side of a washing sponge.

It is best not to use ceramic knives on a glass chopping board, you may chip and damage your expensive knife. The glass chopping boards we sell are tough, but they are still glass and the worse can happen. If it does, and as with any broken glass, wrap in newspaper, and put in a box and throw in your regular rubbish bin. Broken glass is not suitable for going in your recycling.

Plastic Chopping Boards,

Probably the easiest to care for, no pre-treatment is required, they are dishwasher proof and suitable fo all utensils. However, as with the other chopping boards we sell, they are not suitable for use as a trivet for hot dishes or pans.
