MATERIAL AND CARE
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
Teak is commonly found in Southeast Asia, Central and South America. The Skagerak FSC-certified Teak comes from Central America, Brazil and Indonesia, while our non-certified Teak comes from plantations in Southeast Asia and Trinidad; managed to sustain a renewable and reliable supply of wood.
Teak is a heavy, hard and sturdy type of wood. With a high content of natural oils, teak is super resistant to rot and fungus – making it an ideal choice for crafting everyday household articles.
After usage, we recommend washing both sides of the cutting board. To keep the board straight and with a similar colour on both sides, let it dry off in an upright position. Never wash your board in a dishwasher or dry it on a hot element as this can cause cracks on the surface.
When you unwrap your new cutting board, you might find it stained or a little greasy. The greasy look comes from the oil finish we applied to the board before wrapping it. The stains are accumulations of colouring matter and will soon disappear as the board is exposed to light and air. In the beginning, the oil may extract some of the colouring matter which can leave stains on a light surface.
Before using your cutting board for the first time, please make sure to clean it in soapy water.
The teak has been treated with food safe oil to improve its resistance. Therefore, we recommend that you treat the wood at regular intervals with an oil – e.g. worktop oil – to preserve the glow and resistance. If the product is not oiled continuously, the surface may change colour over time and become silvery grey.
