Olive wood has a great reputation for being harder and less porous than other woods. We recommend hand washing your wooden utensils with a mild detergent and warm water. Avoid boiling water and dishwashers as high temperatures may cause the wood to expand and split. Always towel dry after washing to prevent moisture cracks.
Rub your utensils periodically with mineral oil – when the utensils appear dull and the last oil treatment has worn off. This helps to prevent liquid from soaking into the wood and keeps it in good condition. After applying the oil, let the utensils sit for a few hours and then wipe off the excess. How often you treat the utensils with oil depends on how often they get used.
