Finally a 'no mess no fuss' solution to carving juicy meat. This original design has been engineered to allow the juice to go exactly where youwant it - neatly in a ceramic dish ready to make real gravy. The block is tilted at a slight angle from the back to the front for the juice to run evenly down the gutter system and into the ceramic dish without spilling over the edges. Genius.

Exclusively invented by The Block Shop, this bamboo carving block has 4 rubber feet to avoid sliding on your counter top as you carve. neat.

Care Instructions

Before you use your block for the first time, wipe it with a damp soapy cloth and rinse with warm water. Allow to dry. Once dry, apply a thin layer of mineral oil (you can find this on our online store). If you don't have mineral oil you can use olive oil from your kitchen but some people find that cooking oils begin to go rancid. Let it soak in for 24 hours then use the block as normal. Repeat every few months as needed. The oil will darken the colour of the board slightly but it fades with time until you apply oil again. The oil will soak into the fibres and help repel water and juices from penetrating the surface of the block.

Never use chemical based products or bleach. To disinfect, use white spirit vinegar and half a lemon to rub your block down. This is food safe.

To avoid staining, wash your block as soon as you can after use.

Never soak your block in water.

Dishwasher is not advised.

This is a natural product & can stain.
