Charcuterie Board Care
Your new charcuterie board is meant for serving, not for cutting. You can serve almost anything on it, although sticky items should be placed in a cup or bowl. Excessively hot items can damage the epoxy.
Cutting on your board will scratch the epoxy and possibly put small bits of epoxy in your food. There are many types of epoxy, but I use Superclear tabletop and deep pour epoxy, which are food safe. The oils and waxes used to finish your board are food safe also.
When it’s time to clean your board, just a gentle hand wash in warm soapy water is all that is required. Putting your board in the dishwasher is a no-no.
When your board looks a little dry, apply a cutting board oil like Howard’s Butcher Block Conditioner. You can find it at Lowe’s, Home Depot or online. Other products work well also. Just make sure they are food safe. I use Walrus Oil and Walrus Wax. (I'm not sure why they chose this name, since no walruses are involved.) Adding wax can prolong the life of the finish, so you don't have to re-oil it as often.
Congratulations on your purchase!
