Butcher Block Oil
Butcher Block Oil, also known as cutting board oil, is a food contact safe oil to seal and protect your wood preparation items such as countertops and cutting boards. In addition to protecting your kitchen surfaces, it also creates a beautiful flat finish while bringing out the natural colors of the wood. All natural and FDA approved for food content.
There’s nothing inherently special that makes an oil cutting board ready. It needs to be food safe, like ours is, but there’s no magic going on here. We recommend the use of Tung oil as a butcher or cutting block oil. Tung oil is all natural, food safe and creates the most beautiful finish available. In most cases, you’ll want to use a solvent along with the Tung oil. Citrus solvent keeps things food safe and smelling great. You can’t go wrong and you’ll protect your boards. Not convinced?

WHAT OIL SHOULD I USE ON BUTCHER BLOCK?
Why is your choice in butcher block oil so important? Simple: Your countertops and cutting boards can take a beating. From vigorously kneading some homemade pizza dough to breaking down a slab of wild-caught salmon to chopping enough veggies for several batches of your signature minestrone soup, your daily cook-and-clean routine is anything but gentle. You need a work surface that can withstand the culinary onslaught and welcome repeated wipe downs as well.
You could opt for the cold, contemporary look of stainless steel or spring for granite, stone or tile, but the warmth of wood is undeniable. There’s something homey about using natural materials in the most trafficked room in your home. The trick? Keeping that look intact no matter how many sugar cookies you roll out and cut over the holidays.
