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.
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.
This product is fabulous! If you heat it up a little in hot water it’s easier to spread. It makes my butcher block counters look gorgeous. It’s a great sealer and it last longer at repelling water than other food grade mineral oil.
ITS THE BEST!!!
Howard Butcher block Conditioner….I use this product for my cutting boards that I make and my wooden utensils. I like to apply this Mineral oil and Bees wax mixture a little on the hot side I feel like it penetrates a little quicker and a little deeper it is easy to use and the end result is beautiful. I use it regularly (once a month or so). This is a Great Product and I highly recommend it.
This is great for quick refurbishing or finishing a new cutting-board. Not as protective as say a food-safe lacquer but also not as much work to do when it needs refinishing like sanding off all the lacquer. This stuff slowly fades through washing and it is good to keep up with and condition your cutting boards every few months or so. I have hear in the picture I was restoring a cutting-board that I made for my mother a few years ago, so I just sanded out the knife marks and gave a light 220 sanding over the whole thing and then finished with this Butcher Block Conditioner and looks great. Really makes the colors of the wood pop, and keeps the wood from drying out and warping.
