We are crazy about Proteak’s impeccable wood cutting boards and butcher blocks here at Mission Restaurant Supply. This company not only focuses on Renewable Forestry, but their products perform beautifully in both commercial and residential kitchen settings. Like any wood product, Proteak requires the proper care. Here are a few tips for sustaining your Proteak products:

 

 

Seasoning:

Seasoning your new Proteak cutting board or butcher block is a vital step to take before its debut. Teaked wood has a highly porous surface so it’s important to season the surface plenty and often to avoid cracking. {Try seasoning every other week.} The kind of oil you use to season the surface is equally as important. Proteak recommends using USP-grade mineral oil (no vegetable or cooking oil.) With the oil slightly warmed, apply it to the wood with a soft cloth, remembering to follow the grain direction. Normally the preliminary seasoning takes 4-5 coats letting each coat dry before applying the next. The oils below are also good options for seasoning your product:

                Coconut Oil                 Walnut Oil                 Almond Oil                 Beeswax

Cleaning:

Given the porous surface of wood you shouldn’t ever soak your Proteak in a sink of soapy water. Also, avoid using extreme detergents that can penetrate and dry out the wood. Some options for cleaning? You can scrub the board with hot water and mild soap, making sure to thoroughly dry after cleaning, or you can use white vinegar, a mild chlorine bleach, or hydrogen peroxide.
