Your Papa Oki chopping board will be around for a long time if it's looked after

We don't want to be overly dramatic here but this would be bad. Really bad.

This is also really bad. if this is important for you, best buy a plastic one.

Concentrated high heat from pots, pans, burners, etc. will leave burn marks on your board and will scar it for life. How's that for drama?

...make sure it's dry before putting it away

Sprinkle coarse salt liberally over the board, then slice a lemon in half and use it to rub the salt into the board, squeezing juice onto the board as you go, and you’ll be left with a great smelling board. The salt also acts as an abrasive to lift stains out (like beet juice) and can also kill bacteria in the process. Use a clean cloth towel to remove excess liquid or let the board air dry by standing it upright. Papa Oki mineral oil also smells fantastic - check out the reviews!
