At Peck & Chisel we love our personalised chopping boards – after all, that is how we started – making beautiful handcrafted chopping boards for the luxury hotel industry. And we stay true to our abiding principals. Firstly, we source all of our wood from a local timber merchant, handpicking it from the wood yard to ensure that it is the finest piece. Then, our craftsmen hand-engrave each piece to ensure individuality and continuity of quality and style.
Secondly, when each of our boards leave our workshop, wrapped in our trademark satin orange tissue paper, all of our personalised chopping boards come with precise Care Instructions. It might be that you have mislaid your instructions, or that you purchased your board from another store. If so, here are some care instructions…..
How to Care for Your Solid Wood Chopping Board
Pour a large coin sized amount onto the centre of the board and massage back and front with a clean cloth or kitchen towel. After a little while, buff and remove any residue.
When washing after use, you can give it a good clean with soap and hot water.
Do not immerse in water.
Do not leave it near your AGA. Although we know you love them both equally, they will not love each other and the board will warp!
Keep out of the sun.
If you have used it for food with very strong colours or smells, use some salt to remove this before washing with soap and water.
Avoid leaving strong flavoured foods or damp foods on the board over night. It will change the colour of this beautiful wood and retain the smell of the food.
To help maintain its’ long life, occasionally rub with sandpaper and reapply food grade mineral oil or butchers block oil.
And lastly, Peck & Chisel pride ourselves on our personal service. If you have any queries whatsoever, about the product or any element of the purchase or after sales process, just call us and we are there to help.
