A: When visiting the forest, try to insist that the products are made of a whole piece of wood. If there is a product made from a whole piece of wood, we will definitely mark it! Please also pay attention! Q: Do you have any recommended maintenance oil? A: Before the visit to the forest, a layer of maintenance oil for wooden food and kitchen supplies (tested by NSF-3H for food-grade mineral oil) will be applied. ＊The choice of maintenance oil is food-grade mineral oil and natural beeswax, but please remember "don't" use olive oil to maintain olive wood products, it will make your olive wood products spoilage or oil consumption.

Before shipment, the packaging staff will wipe it with maintenance oil before packaging and shipping. Therefore, it is normal that your product feels oily. All olive wood products are properly covered to prevent the maintenance oil from adhering to the packaging paper. If there is a little adhering to the packaging paper, there is no safety concern. Please rest assured, and please forgive me. Q: Why is the color different after washing and drying after I use it for the first time? A: Of course it will be different! Every time you wash, the maintenance oil will be washed away again and again, so the color will not be the wax color at the beginning. It is quite simple to restore the color. In addition to the recommended maintenance every month, you can usually dry the product After applying a thin layer of maintenance oil, you can maintain its color.

However, for food hygiene and safety, we strongly recommend raw and cooked foods. Separate use of different cutting boards is the long-term health strategy.
