Re: Chefs - seasoning a wood cutting board

Regarding Slammer´s comment on glass cutting boards, they might be hygenic , but you´re ruining your knife edge , every time you use one. The board should be at least somewhat less hard than the knife you use.

Actually I have never noticed any marked difference on the blade using a glass board or a wooden one or a plastic board, then again I draw my knifes over a steel before use to remove any burr that may be there.

Irrespective of the knife issues I just can't use a glass cutting board at all due to the noise it makes. It's just horrible.
A wooden or even plastic board is just so much nicer to use.

Re: Chefs - seasoning a wood cutting board

Sorry for the delay in getting back. I just had the time yesterday to finally drop by Ikea Aubonne.

So, the SKYDD Mineral Oil product (see photo from Ikea FR website) is not available in CH. Probably an EU/CH product safety issue.

Ikea CH proposes a Linseed based product called BEHANDLA (see photo). CHF 12.95 for a 750ml can. You can "paint" it on or wipe it on with a clean cloth and let it soak in.

..... and what's left over, you can use on your cricket bat.


Skydd oil is probably too slippy.

This is exactly what I use. According to the employee at IKEA that I spoke to when buying a wooden work top and chopping board, BEHANDLA is food safe.

I'm just wondering...what's the difference between Behandla and an edible linseed oil? I get it that it's good for furniture, but could it be as safe as a normal cooking oil for a chopping board?

Absolutely no clue to be honest as I don't use edible linseed oil!

All I know is that BEHANDLA also contains a drying agent and an emulsifier. Does edible linseed oil have these as well?

I was told it's food safe, (i.e. chopping boards) but I did not ask whether you can use it as a cooking oil.

Haha, of course you didn't. I didn't mean their interchangeability when cooking.. I was just wondering if this product, which is obviously more than an oil (so I personally doubt that it is as safe or totally non-toxic as a normal oil), is more efficient than the other one when used to season a wooden cutting board....in other words why considering using this product instead of a plain linseed cooking oil which at least is totally safe.

Haha, silly me! It's a good question.
I'll ask IKEA the next time I'm there. Let's see how much they know !

Re: Chefs - seasoning a wood cutting board

A little bit of a con though - for normal domestic use, I think anyone would struggle to use 750ml within 6 mths. Think of the 13 chufs, when you're tipping the leftovers away, come December.

What are the numbers on the left meant to signify?

Where to get mineral oil?

Hello all! My poor wooden cutting boards are in desperate need of an oiling but I've never figured out where to get mineral oil? Or maybe something different in used here?

Thanks!
