Walnut wood is known for its durability and resistance to knife marks.

Walnut wood is also naturally anti-bacterial, which can help reduce the spread of harmful bacteria in your kitchen. In addition, Mevell's cutting boards offer just the right amount of hardness, allowing for a clean cut with your knife without dulling the blade.
Types of Cutting Boards
The Face grain cutting board is made of straight-cut wood planks glued facing up, showing the natural beauty of the wood.
Edge grain cutting boards are a type of wooden cutting board made by gluing together planks of wood with their edges facing up. The resulting surface of the cutting board is a series of parallel lines that run along the board's length, known as the edge grain. They are known for their durability and resistance to knife marks, which makes them a great option for heavy use in the kitchen. They also tend to be less expensive than end-grain cutting boards. In addition, they have a unique look and texture and can be a great addition to any kitchen.
End grain cutting boards - made by gluing together a few blocks of wood with their end grain facing up. End grain butcher blocks are a preferred choice among professional cooks and BBQ enthusiasts for their ability to withstand heavy knife use.

Frequently Asked Questions about Wood Cutting Boards
How to care for a wood-cutting board?
They are easy to clean and maintain. Wipe the board down with a damp cloth and mild soap after each use, and occasionally oil them with food-grade mineral oil to keep them in tip-top shape. Avoid submerging them in water and never put them in the dishwasher as it can cause warping and cracking. Check our article for a detailed guide on cutting board care.
How to Oil a wooden cutting board?
Regularly oiling your wood cutting board is crucial in preserving its beauty and longevity. First, choose a food-grade mineral oil such as mineral oil or refined coconut oil, also called MCT Oil. Then, apply it evenly all over the board, using a clean cloth or a board oil applicator. Allow the oil to fully absorb for at least 15-20 minutes before wiping off any excess; this will help to keep your cutting board in excellent condition for continued use.
