Wooden cutting boards
A must in the kitchen, the wooden cutting board is the tool that helps in the preparation of dishes. It is used for cutting food such as meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
Wood is a popular and recommended material for making boards and logs that will come into contact with foodstuffs. It is hygienic and incredibly durable. This is because it is living and working throughout its life. It swells and expands when its environment undergoes changes in temperature and/or humidity. It is true that this phenomenon is responsible for the appearance of cracks. However, these cracks do not affect the board or the food that is cut into it.
The wood naturally eliminates germs and bacteria from the board. Its porosity allows it to absorb liquids by capillary action. The micro-organisms present on the wood are absorbed and eliminated. If the board is well maintained, the growth of bacteria is more than limited.
To clean and preserve your board, we recommend that you avoid using a dishwasher. We recommend using a mild detergent or a soft brush to scrape the surface of the wood, especially after cutting meat and fish. Once washed, wipe it thoroughly before storing it on the edge.
To avoid cross-contamination between raw foods, we recommend using different cutting boards for meat, fish, fruit and vegetables.
