Treatment for cutting board?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I ordered a hardwood cutting block. What kind of food safe treatment or sealer could/should I use to treat this block?


Thanks, fellas!

I use mineral oil on our boards.


It's real cheap at Walmart in the laxative Dept.

​Thanks, Chef!


My wife just bought a tub of that wood salad bowl treatment for a very nice locally handmade cherry wood bowl. Come to find out I've already got the right stuff!


Much appreciated! Points!

My new board came in yesterday. While prepping to put the treatment on it, I fired up the oven and set temp to 350. I put a good application on the board and when the oven hit demand temp, I shut it off. I put the board in the oven and left it for a good hour or so. The board sucked up the treatment real good, so I repeated that procedure.


Not only is it now well treated, the treatment brought out the grain color and it looks great, too!


Your suggestion on that treatment is much appreciated, brother!
