Caring For Your Board or Block

Wooden boards and blocks should be kept clean with a good scrub using hot, soapy water after each use. Please, do not soak your boards in water - they will crack and warp. Cole's Blocks should never be washed in a dishwasher. 

For disinfecting, use a weak bleach solution to clean the boards after cutting raw meats to ward off bacterial contamination.

Instructions for Care:

  • Do not immerse in water
  • Wipe your block clean with a damp cloth or hot soapy water after every use
  • To sanitize your board flood the surface with a bleach and water solution, scrub with sponge, rinse, and towel dry 
  • Occasionally moisturize your cutting block by rubbing food grade mineral oil or our Block Butter onto the surface and sides, including bark - wipe off any excess that is not absorbed

Care for your cutting block correctly and it will reward you with a long life and the best performance possible.
