How do I care for my end-grain cutting board?

After use, wash your cutting board in hot soapy water, rinse thoroughly, dry the board immediately and let it sit on it's feet. The feet on the bottom of the cutting board help prevent moisture buildup and expansion of the wood over a long period of time. Avoid soaking the board in the sink for an extended period of time and never clean in a dishwasher. The hot water and steam cycle can ruin the board. 

End grain cutting boards need to be reconditioned with mineral oil and bees wax every few months, depending on how often the board is used. For heavy daily use, oil the cutting board every month, or as often as desired. Cutting board oil can be purchased from a variety of stores such as Home Depot, Canadian Tire or any store that stocks wood cutting boards. Look for mineral oil or a combination with bees wax, as that will help to condition your board. We recommend heating the oil to warm before applying. This will allow for greater saturation and will absorb more into the wood of the cutting board. Do not recondition with anything but mineral oil. Vegetable oil, olive oil, and many other oils will turn rancid after a period of time and give off an odor.
