This is a very sturdy and heavy board. I leave it down on the counter where I cut up vegetables. I oil it to keep it in good condition.
Cutting board oil.
I purchased this oil at the same time I purchased my huge cutting board for my counter. It is an excellent product. I did several applications as suggested on the bottle before I started even using the board. The board looks great. Even now after I have used it, the board still has a rich, preserved look. I feel like the helped it stay that way.
