Maple Cutting Board Care

A maple cutting board will last a lifetime if well cared for.

Let's start with the most important thing to know - a wooden cutting board should never be put in the dishwasher or sit in water.

The high temperature and steam in a dishwasher will dry out your maple cutting board to the point where it can not be repaired. And water will foster mold growth. Water and wood are not friends.

You should wash your cutting board with mild soap and water (Dawn detergent is not mild), wipe it off and let it air dry standing up or on a cookie sheet so the air can easily flow all around.

Once dry (about 24 hours after washed), you should apply and rub in food-grade mineral oil or coconut oil and let that soak in. Repeat these steps as needed. More often in the beginning and less over time as it becomes more "seasoned".
