Proper use, cleaning and care of your woodenware will ensure years of service and beauty:
Avoid using segmented bowls or spalted or heavily burled woodenware to serve or hold liquids.
Avoid soaking segmented bowls or spalted or heavily burled woodenware in the sink.
Clean with warm water and a mild detergent or non-abraisive cleanser.
Solid bowls may be gently washed by hand with the rest of your dishes.
Don't even think about putting your woodenware in the dishwasher!
Food-contact surfaces may occasionally be given a light coat of mineral oil or walnut oil.
Other surfaces may be treated with a high quality wax or polish.
