Designed in Denmark by Skagerak, this is the Copas team's carving board of choice. We have been using the same one for all our demonstrations for years and it still looks as good as new.
Teak contains natural oils that are resistant to moisture and germs. The upward fibres of the end grain absorb the impact from your knife blade, this ensures top-notch durability, both in terms of the board itself and the knives used on it. The board has built-in grips on each end and a juice groove that collects all the juices from your turkey (or other meat) for making the all important gravy.
Dimensions: 36cm wide x 58 cms long x 5cms deep.
PROPER USAGE AND MAINTENANCE
Proper usage and maintenance are vital for getting the most out of your carving board. They are made to last for generations but, just like everything else, they need a little care.
Teak is commonly found in Southeast Asia, Central and South America. The FSC-certified Teak for these boards comes from Central America, Brazil and Indonesia, while the non-certified Teak comes from plantations in Southeast Asia and Trinidad; managed to sustain a renewable and reliable supply of wood.
Teak is a heavy, hard and sturdy type of wood. With a high content of natural oils, teak is super resistant to rot and fungus, making it an ideal choice for crafting everyday household articles.
After usage, we recommend washing both sides of the cutting board. To keep the board straight and with a similar colour on both sides, let it dry off in an upright position. Never wash your board in a dishwasher or dry it on a hot element as this can cause cracks on the surface.
When you unwrap your new cutting board, you might find it stained or a little greasy. The greasy look comes from the oil finish which was applied to the board before wrapping it. The stains are accumulations of colouring matter and will soon disappear as the board is exposed to light and air. In the beginning, the oil may extract some of the colouring matter which can leave stains on a light surface.
Before using your cutting board for the first time, please make sure to clean it in soapy water.
The teak has been treated with food safe oil to improve its resistance. Therefore, it is recommended that you treat the wood at regular intervals with an oil, such as worktop oil, to preserve the glow and resistance. If the product is not oiled continuously, the surface may change colour over time and become silvery grey.
