Why Oil Wooden Cutting Boards in Melbourne?
Melbourne is a drought-prone area. Therefore, there is a lack of moisture in the atmosphere. If someone you love uses sophisticated yet rustic wooden cutting boards in their Melbourne kitchen, the climate should be considered. It can lead to the moisture of the wood used in the cutting board to dry up, which may lead to the board warping and cracking. The best way to prevent this is by oiling the board regularly.
While there are a lot of oils that can be used to do this, such as mineral oil or re-fractionated coconut oil, one of the safest bets is grapeseed oil. Greenvalley sells wooden cutting boards online in Melbourne. Our cutting boards are finished with the best quality grapeseed oil.
Advantages of Using Grapeseed Oil for Wooden Cutting Boards in Melbourne
Apart from the obvious reason that oils prevent cracking, there are other advantages of oiling wooden cutting boards in Melbourne. One is that oil prevents food juices from seeping into the board, preventing odours and being broken.
As mentioned earlier, grapeseed oil ticks off all the criteria for safe use on camphor cutting boards. Some of these benefits are:
- Less rancid than other food grade oils and hence not tainting the beautiful smell of camphor.
- Extracted from grape seeds unlike mineral oils that are extracted from petroleum, thus making it more environmentally sustainable.
- Great for skin and hair.
- Safe for babies and those with nut allergies
- Helps retain the moisture content of the wood
- Holds the grain together.
Therefore, grapeseed oil is the best finish for wooden cutting boards within Melbourne. The process includes cleaning the board with dish soap and water, patting it dry and rubbing oil all over it. Let the oil soak for about an hour or two and seep into the board.
