Wooden plates

  • We love using wooden plates, but after years of constant use, ours are starting to look a bit weather beaten. Any tips for maintaining them?

    Do they need to be sanded and oiled from time to time? If so, is oliva ok, or will that eventually turn rancid?

  • We just enjoy the rustic aspect of wooden plates, UK Man . I can’t say we’ve ever had a really greasy meal on them; pizza probably comes closest. Usually use them for sandwiches or a kind of ploughman’s lunch.

  • Come to think of it it's not any different from the wooden block we use for cutting asado which is usually ends up very greasy and we just scrub that with detergent and water.

    Can't avoid it getting discoloured so just leave it.
