The Chopping Block is ideal also as a fifth wedding anniversary gift (Traditionally the 5th anniversary is celebrated through the giving of wooden gifts.)
So, why an “End Grain” Chopping Block?
The benefits are many, but in particular they are a lot more resistant to damage from repeated use, and yet allow your lovely knives to remain sharp for a lot longer too! These are made as, “Butchers’ Blocks” have been constructed for generations. It takes twice as long to create, but as any culinary professional will tell you, they are the only serious option.
Chopping Block Finish.
Each Chopping Block is exhaustively hand finished in multiple coats of firstly food grade mineral oil, then three coats of beeswax. This finish technique is the very best system for food preparation surfaces, and has been used and proven for centuries. Although not dishwasher safe – it would strip all the oil and wax from the surface – the board can be safely immersed in soapy water and, if necessary, have additional applications of beeswax to get it as good as new again. Incidentally, if it were to be washed in the dishwasher by accident, the board would actually survive perfectly…it’s simply that the owner would then have to go through applying all the lovely coats of oil and wax again!
