Information about your jojomo cutting board

WOOD BOARDS:

  • Our wood cutting boards are made from select hardwoods.
  • Most of the wood is from new, leftover, cutoffs.  It is a great way for us to recycle our excess lumber pieces.
  • Never leave the board in water or send it through the dishwasher.  Disaster will strike!
  • It is best cleaned with a sponge or scrunge pad and mild soapy water.
  • 2013 boards have been finished with a 4:1 mix of Mineral Oil & Beeswax.
  • Rejuvenate with Mineral Oil and or Beeswax.

SOLID SURFACE BOARDS:

  • These boards are made from acrylic solid surface.  This is an extremely durable, nonporous, dishwasher safe and stain resistant material.
  • It’s unique density and structure retains both heat and cold.  Put it in the refrigerator or freezer and it will stay cold for quite a while.  Heat it in hot water and it will help keep that roast chicken warm on the table.  Do not heat it in the oven. A warming drawer would be perfect.
  • It is fine to use as a trivet but if it exceeds 300 degrees fahrenheit it will turn into jello.  The material can scorch and show burn marks.  These can usually be sanded away.
  • The best cleaning method is a good scrub with a green scotchbrite pad in soapy water or send it through the dishwasher.
  • The material will show scratches and knife marks over time.  When I am comparing countertop options with clients, I always tell my clients that Solid Surface tops are the only countertop that can be repaired and refinished with ease.  We often go into kitchens & baths and in a few hours, are able to refinish the tops to an almost new condition!  If you have a sander, after a few years of board wear and tear, try sanding it back to “new” with 120,180 and or 220 grit sandpaper.
