Chopping Board Oil Instructions
Applying oil to a chopping board is very easy and will enhance the look and feel of the board. Regular application of chopping board oils will keep your chopping boards look great for many years.
It's quick and easy to apply, just follow these instructions for great results every time.
- Ensure the surface is clean and dry before applying the oil to the chopping board.
- Apply the Cutting Board Oil liberally and evenly over the board using a lint free cloth and leave any excess to soak in overnight.
- Once dry, buff the chopping board using a clean cloth. Repeat the process until you can drip a drop of water onto the wood and it beads up on the surface and does not soak in. This is how to tell if the wood is completely protected.
Re-apply once a month, or as necessary when you see that water is once again starting to be absorbed into the chopping board.

FAQ - Oiling Chopping Boards
Q. Should you oil wood chopping boards?
A. Yes. Applying oil to a chopping board will keep it cleaner, healthier and will also help keep the wood from drying out, splitting or cracking.
Q. How often should I oil my wood chopping board?
A. We recommend re-applying the oil once a month. You'll notice the wood feeling drier or looking a lighter colour. This is a good indication to oil the board again.
Q. How do you seal a wooden chopping board?
A. A. We're not really sealing wood when we oil it. The Chopping Board Oil soaks into the wood and keeps the wood hydrated; it also stops stains and odours from soaking into the wood and so keeps your chopping board looking and smelling better.
Q. Can you oil a chopping board with vegetable oil?
A. No. Vegetable oils such as olive oil, peanut oil or walnut oil are non-drying and contain fats that oxidise and go rancid. Using such oils can lead to unpleasant odours.
Q. Is your chopping board oil food safe?
A. Yes, it is made from FDA grade mineral oil that is completely safe to use on all items of wood that come into contact with food.
