Care tips for your end-grain chopping board


Each of our end grain boards is unique.


To ensure you can enjoy your cutting board for years to come, please note the following care instructions:


After use, simply wipe your “Augenweide” (eye candy) cutting board with a damp cloth (possibly with a little detergent) and dry it.Allow the board to air dry. Please place the boards without rubber feet upright to dry.


Please do NOT clean the board in the dishwasher, do not leave it in water and do not use hard scouring pads or cleaning agents.


 Please do not place your board on radiators or ovens or place hot cook pots on it. Over time, your board may become rougher, or the wood color may appear paler. That is normal! Then it's time for some care.



Oil your board generously and you will notice how the board absorbs the oil instantly. You can use walnut oil instead of paraffin oil. However, we do not recommend using vegetable oil as it can become rancid and may release a bad taste to your food.


 If after years it is time for a “rejuvenation” treatment, you can always sand the surface yourself with fine sandpaper and then treat it with oil as described above.


 Based on our good experiences, we ourselves use and recommend care with a beeswax-paraffin oil mixture that is rubbed on all sides of the board.


 We are happy to answer any questions you may have about care, even after purchase.






Wood is a natural product


We have set ourselves a high quality standard, but there are also minor flaws in the high-quality wood we use. These irregularities neither affect the use nor the longevity of our handcrafted end grain cutting boards.


In addition, our measurements and weight information may not always exactly correspond to the millimeter and gram information given due to natural


Isn't wood unsanitary?




Scientific studies* have shown that, contrary to popular belief, wooden utensils, such as boards and wooden spoons, have lower germ counts after contamination with bacteria than comparable utensils made from plastic.



Because of its porous structure, the wooden surface removes moisture and thus ensures that germs and bacteria dry out quickly and die off.
