Classic in appearance while still being durable and practical, a wooden or marble chopping board is a great choice in any kitchen. Whether you’re furnishing your cooking space for the first time or just looking to update your kitchen equipment with a quality chopping board, you’ll love the selection from The Essential Ingredient — thoughtfully curated to offer you a wealth of functional and versatile options.
How to maintain the condition of your wooden chopping boards
Wooden chopping boards are sustainable, attractive and versatile, which is why we love to use them in the kitchen. When it comes to getting the most out of them, wooden chopping boards require a little tender love and care. To maintain their condition, prevent cracking and mould growth, chopping board oil is essential. Simply apply with a clean, dry cloth all over your chopping board once every month, or when you start to notice it drying out.
As well as chopping board oil, The Essential Ingredient stocks food-safe wax, which can also be applied to wooden chopping boards to keep their condition and prevent warping or other damage.
Why we love versatile marble chopping boards
Heat and humidity can be a baker’s worst nightmare, especially in Australia, where temperatures can soar all year round. Marble chopping boards are a brilliant kitchen staple, because their surface stays cool, buying you extra time with butter-rich doughs and kneading. Their cool, consistent temperature also makes them an ideal surface for tempering chocolate. Best of all, a marble chopping board can double as an attractive serving platter for cheese and fruit, or even just a sliced loaf of good, rustic sourdough.
