A quick, efficient, and easy way to take care of your cutting board, the CLARK’S coconut oil is best for this purpose!
Maintenance of your wooden cutting board is essential as you wash it a lot. If left unprotected, the porous wood expands and warps due to excessive everyday washing with water or soap. The wood cutting board becomes dry and begins to crack or wear when left in the open air.
That is why the wooden board needs to be protected and cared for longer life. Using Vegetable, olive, mustard, or canola oil on a wooden cutting board makes wood go rancid eventually and promotes bacterial growth. Opting a food-grade or mineral oil is the best choice to overcome this issue; CLARK’S coconut oil is a great option to keep wood well-protected and polished.
What is CLARK’S Coconut cutting board oil?
It is well-made, 100% natural, and organic coconut oil that not only preserves but also offers a great finish to your wooden cutting board. This conditioning plant-based oil has low-viscosity and is safe to use on all wooden kitchen stuff. Thanks to its deep penetrating ability; the CLARK’S coconut oil protects your cutting board by filling the pores of the wood to form a barrier that holds in the natural wood moisture that keeps cracking and water absorption at bay.
Coconut Cutting Board Oil (12 ounces) by CLARK’S
Made in the USA, this is 100% plant-based oil that is free from preservatives or additives. Approved from the US FDA, it is the safest woodblock oil on the market. It comes in a 12 FL OZ transparent plastic bottle with a black easy-pour cap on top.
The safe organic oil works well to protect and preserve your wood. The oil absorbs deeply into the wood to preserve and nourish it to avoid cracks or splitting. Moreover, the coconut oil used has no contact with gluten, tree nuts, or any other allergens. This allows you to use on any wooden surface or item that comes in contact with vegetables, herbs, and other foods.
Quality and Performance
What most people look for in cutting board oil is a thick coat that really brings out the beauty of the wood. The CLARK’S oil doesn’t only safeguard the board, it also makes it look beautiful by bringing the natural grain of the wood.
Although it’s easy to use, always make sure that your wood is clean and thoroughly washed to prevent germ build-up. For this purpose, the CLARK’S cutting board oil marks the 2nd step of its 3-step cutting board care solution that begins with CLARK’s all-natural coconut soap and ends with a wax finish.
Unlike mineral oils with discernible odor, CLARK’S oil is unscented but sometimes gives a very mild coconut smell. Another great thing about CLARK’S oil is that it has a reasonable price under $15.
My 12 FL OZ bottle lasted a good amount of time (4-5 months) with regular oiling for 2-3 weeks. I didn’t notice any splitting or drying. I apply a generous amount of oil to my wood board directly and use a paper towel to spread the oil until it evenly covers both the board sides. Leave it about 24 hours so that it fully absorbs the oil. Although I get great results with only one coat application, you can apply additional oil coats if needed. However, a more durable and water-resistant seal is achieved by applying the wax finish to seal the oil into the wood.
• Non-greasy and no bad odor
• Penetrates deeply
• Prevents wrapping and cracking
• Better results when followed with a wax finish
Should I buy CLARK’S Coconut cutting board oil?
You don’t want to repurchase wood cutting boards since they are expensive nowadays so maintaining them is important. Preserve the one you have for years to come. If you want to restore your cutting board’s beauty by bringing the natural rich color back while protecting it, the CLARK’S cutting board oil will be great for you. However, it’s better to go for the full 3-step care solution instead of just buying step 2 alone i.e. CLARK’S cutting board oil. The whole 3-part (soap, oil, and wax) are designed to be used on cutting boards or other kitchen wood items and will never go rancid.
