Cutting boards made of Japanese cypress are gentle to knives and help them stay sharp for longer. Japanese cypress cutting boards contain antibacterial compound, phytoncide, so they don not require coating and are maintained in a clean, sanitary condition as a result of natural, anti-bacterial properties. The soft surface of the timber is also gentle on knives, leaving the edges sharper for longer. The included tray enables you to move cut ingredients to the tray and then directly to the pot or frying pan etc. You can also use the tray to collect vegetable ends or skins etc., making clean up so much easier.
Care Instructions :-
- Always wash with soap after use and drain water by standing the board’s wood grain vertically.
- To suppress the breeding of bacteria and rotting, please occasionally dry the board thoroughly outdoors in the shadow.
