The beauty of your olive wood is easily maintained by washing it by hand with a mild liquid soap and warm water. Never leave it soaking in water or place it in the dishwasher. Dry the wood immediately after washing. It is important to nourish the wood and bring out its wood grain by rubbing it with a thin coat of food grade mineral oil or olive oil. This will keep your olive wood in great condition and bring out its natural color and grain.
Olive Wood Kitchen Utensils
Olive wood has a beautiful grain, is extremely durable and does not absorb odors or stains like many other woods, making it a great choice for cooking utensils and serving bowls. Our olive wood cooking utensils have been individually hand crafted in Navarra, Spain by the Pimfa Wood Crafters. Each utensil is made from one solid piece of olive wood, which now has very limited availability. Since they are carved from the natural wood each piece will vary slightly in color and texture.
