No, wood is a natural material; every tree is one of a kind. Our boards have natural beauty and each one is different and has unique grain and color. It will be not identical, but similar. If you are not happy with your board, please check our return policy.
All our boards are reversible.
An End Grain Cutting board is a board, wherein the wood grains are perpendicular to the cutting surface, and not parallel as in ordinary cutting boards. End Grain teak boards are formed by little pieces glued together to construct an elegant and amazing pattern. The end grain wood fibers absorb the impact of the knife blade while chopping, allowing your knife to stay sharper and your board surfaces to stay smoother.
Edge grain boards are cut with the grain’s edge so the wood fibers are aligned horizontally. This is the most common construction for wood cutting boards and is known for its durability, less water absorption and softer for the knife’s blade.
According to a scientific study on Plastic and Wooden Chopping Boards, conducted by Dean O. Cliver, Ph. D, it transpired that wooden cutting boards are, in fact, hygienic since certain types of wood do seem to exhibit antibacterial properties, while plastic boards have been scientifically proven to harbor bacteria inside the cut grooves.
For us, the most important facet is sustainability. More than ever, we are living in a generation where we are very cautious about the food we eat and the environment. We believe the tools we use to prepare our food should follow the same mindful guidelines. We support zero-plastic initiatives.
And at last, teakwood cutting boards are known to be knife-friendly and they will keep your knives sharp.

Care & Maintenance Information
Our Boards are pre-oiled and ready-to-use; before first use, wash, rinse and dry it with a kitchen towel.
We use a mixture of mineral oil and natural beeswax to coat. However, we recommended you apply Teakhaus oil regularly.
Keep your Teakhaus cutting board sanitized by simply washing it! Wash your cutting board after every use.
a. Hand wash with hot soapy water after each use.
c. Dry it with a Kitchen towel, or better let it air dry.
d. Store only when is completely dry or display it on the counter.

Wood is a natural material and tends to expand and contract. Too much moisture is the cause of cracks and splits. We recommended you don't store the board until is completely dry.
A Teak cutting board rarely absorbs odors or stains. Yet, it can happen! Only three natural ingredients are needed to remove odors or stains: lemon, salt and baking soda.
1. Cut a lemon and rub it in on the cutting board.
2. Sprinkle the board generously with kosher or table salt or baking soda (the salt or baking soda will absorb any odors, flavors and stains).
3. Build a paste over the board rubbing the lemon and squeezing the juice.
4. Let it dry for some hours.
5. Remove the dry paste with the help of a spatula or your hands.
6. Wash, rinse and dry; and be sure to oil your board after.
Teak’s natural high oil content acts, as a water repellant, this oil will keep your board hydrated for longer periods of time. Oiling two times a month will keep your board healthy.
1. Only use Teakhaus Maintenance products. Use your favorite oil or seasoning stick for the same results.
2. Leave the oil absorbed for at least six hours, for better results let it overnight.
3. Wipe off any remaining oil using a dry clean cloth.
4. Do not let your board get dry, lack of oiling results on cracks, warps, or splits.
5. AVOID any cooking oil (olive oil, canola oil, etc.) These oils can become rancid.
To increase the board life to lifetime, to avoid cracks or splits, to bring life the fabulous colors and to keep safe from any bacteria.
Is perfectly normal! Teakwood is a medium hardwood. The hardness of a wood is related with durability & stability. Teak’s hardness is not too soft to bring a luxurious cutting experience and not too hard to keep your knives sharp.
You can’t avoid knife marks, but you could repair it once a while. WE recommended to sand your cutting board when the marks are deep, you could start with a medium coarse grit sandpaper (100) and finish with a fine coarse grit, wash, and oil your board and it will look again as new.
