Q:What is the high temperature limit of this product? will it damage the bottom of pots and pans if contacted hot? Looking to use on oak hot pads.
by|Jan 27, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  If Butcher Block Conditioner comes in contact with hot pots then the conditioner may melt deeper into the wood pores on the oak, the oils and waxes from the conditioner wouldn't hurt the pots and could be wiped off with a soft cloth. Max Temperature would be around 331 F.

    A:  Usually Butcher Block Conditioner doesn't discolor, however, the wood may eventually dry out and another application of conditioner would be needed.

      Q:If you are staining your new butcher block counter do you use the conditioner first? Will it change how the stain is absorbed in the new butcher block counter.
      by|Jan 23, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  We don't recommend using a stain on a butcher block counter top because the stain is most likely not food safe. The stain could seep out of the counter and into your food, causing the food to taste bad and possibly be toxic. Our Cutting Board Oil and Butcher Block Conditioner are better alternatives and are food safe. Counter tops and butcher blocks are better left in their natural color and only maintained with Cutting Board Oil and Butcher Block Conditioner for the life of the wood. Over time, the wood will develop a natural color and “patina” that stain can’t duplicate; just time and conditioner.

        Q:Can you use this conditoner to treat butcher block without any other product applied previously?
        by|Jan 18, 2023
        3 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Use Cutting Board Oil and Butcher Block Conditioner whenever the wood looks or feels dry by applying one coat of either product. On new or raw wood surfaces, like cutting boards and butcher blocks, make sure to "season" them first with Cutting Board Oil. To properly "season" new wood surfaces, apply at least 2 coats and let each coat soak in for at least an hour. For surfaces thicker than 1.5-inches apply 3-4 coats. Additional coats help ensure that the oil fully soaks into the wood. After Cutting Board Oil, maintain wood with Howard Butcher Block Conditioner by applying 1 coat and let it stand for at least 20 minutes. For countertops, let the conditioner soak overnight and in the morning, wipe away excess. The conditioner helps protect the wood by keeping the mineral oil in and the moisture out. Butcher blocks can be regularly oiled with Cutting Board Oil or Butcher Block Conditioner to keep them seasoned and ready for use. These products can be used together for best results but can be used alone as well.

          A:  Yes. I use it on bare wood. It won't work if the wood is sealed already

          by|Jan 22, 2023

            A:  Yes. I just lightly sanded my butcher block & applied this product & it looked fantastic.

              Great Product
              Needed a nice finish on the oak knife rack I built for our butcher block top island. This stuff is amazing! I ended up reconditioning the island top too. Easy to use, and looks great!

                  Good product
                  Good product spreads well. It soaked into the countertop quickly and leaves a nice low shine. It doesnt leave a film or residue.

                  Totally restored bleached butcher block
                  I don’t normally leave reviews on products, but this conditioner deserves 1,000,000 stars. I accidentally used a bleach-containing Chlorox cleaner on my butcher block counter and it turned nearly white. I wish I had before pics, but alas, I had little faith when I first used this product. The counter tops look brand new, as if the bleach never touched it. If you are wondering if this product is worth the price, BUY IT. Especially if your counters are in rough shape. I could not be happier with the results and would recommend it to anyone! Check out the after picture with my post.

                    Great oil, keeps our butcher block top in nice shape
                    I have used this oil on our butcher block top for the kitchen island for the last 5 years and it works great. It keep the wood smooth and moist enough. I follow the directions and apply about twice a year since we have a toaster oven under the top that tends to dry it out faster. After applying I let it sit for a day before putting items back on. If I get water rings on the top, a light sanding before application takes them off. Overall, great product for butcher tops.

                    Great product. I used this on a new Maple cutting board and it soaks in well and after it soaks in you can then buff it and get a very smooth finish.
