These are made from hard Canadian maple wood. It has a light coating of butcher block/cutting board oil — which does not hinder the natural antibacterialproperties in the wood. Did you know that Maple carries compounds that hinder bacterial growth? Pretty cool hey. This wood uses capillary action to absorb bad bugs from the surface pores. Once bacteria is trapped inside the wood’s cells it suffocates, cut-off from the oxygen it needs to survive.
Another thing to note — Similar to a cutting board — if you put red berries on it, it might stain. For this reason , we choose to use foods that don’t stain.
To wash, simply clean your plates the same as you would a wood cutting board. Never submerge in water or put in the dishwasher.
