Walnut is one of the most valued types of wood on the planet. It is debarked, cut, planed, and sanded to be manufactured into furniture, cabinets, cutting boards and other wood products. Walnut is considered a high-quality hardwood that leaves a luxurious and elegant finish.
Not only is walnut gorgeous, but it also engraves beautifully and has anti-bacterial properties. Walnut wood tends to be more durable and gentler on knives than other materials, such as plastic or bamboo.
Walnut cutting boards are a popular and stunning choice. They will look great in any kitchen and can last a lifetime when properly care for.
Never put your cutting board in the dishwasher. The excessive water and hot temperatures used to dry can be very damaging for your hardwood cutting board. You can simply wipe it down with soap and a damp cloth, rinse it and leave it in an upright position to dry.
If you are worried about bacteria contaminating your boards, they can be sanitized using vinegar or salt and lemon. Vinegar can be used as a mild household disinfectant, while rubbing coarse salt with half of a lemon can help get deep into knife marks.
If you are looking for a board with a more efficient cleanup, our dishwasher-safe Richlite cutting boards may be a better choice for you.
