All of the worktops that we supply will have been given a minimum of five coats of Danish Oil. It is important that timber surfaces are re-oiled at regular intervals to remain in the same condition as it was when it was first installed. The time span between is dependent upon the degree of use and wear it receives. For example, a highly worked surface will need re-oiling possibly once a week after initial install, gradually changing to once a month. At the very least timber worksurfaces should be re-oiled every three months. Regular oiling will keep the worktop looking like new for many years. Again, always use cutting boards to chop and slice food, do not place hot pans directly onto the worksurface and clean up spillages straight away to avoid staining.
