End Grain Cutting Board
+ $ shipping surcharge
A helping hand.
While you're making room for all of your prep work, Proteak is making room for indigenous South American animals and plants by growing sustainable teak forests. Proteak's plantations are FSC certified and devoted to environmental responsibility: Each of their cutting boards is made from the wood leftover from making furniture.
The board itself is highly resistant to moisture due to its natural oils, and it’s sturdy enough to hold up whether you’re using it every day or for special occasions.
Don’t keep this board behind the scenes—it's presentation-ready with indented handles for easy carrying. Choose from a large (big enough to carve a turkey), a medium for everyday tasks, or a square, its smallish size perfect for more … miniature of kitchens. The medium board also comes with a moat around the edge, perfect for catching the juices and seeds of whatever you’re chopping so they can be flicked right into the waste bin rather than running onto the counter.

Care & Notes -
Before first use, it is recommended to season your board with USP-grade mineral oil, coconut oil, or beeswax. Oil your cutting surface once every 1-2 weeks to maintain quality and avoid bacteria and cracks. Keep teak and other hardwoods away from extreme humidity or dryness. Temperature extremes can cause the wood to swell and shrink, leading to small cracks or breaks along the grain. Hand wash only; do not soak. See more care instructions here.
