Resin is a blend of composites that form a hard plastic-like polymer. Once cured, surfaces finished with the resin I use are scratch resistant, durable, and beautiful. Proper care for resin finished products will prolong the glass like finish of your product.
For prolonged food exposure such as charcuterie displays or cake serving, it is recommended that a layer of parchment or wax paper be placed between food and the resin portion of your serving board or tray.
Clean your product with mild dish soap and water after use. I recommend using a sponge (not the scrubby side!) or a paper towel or cloth. You can make the resin portion really shine with windex or a glass cleaner but you may not want to eat off of that kind of surface... so use your judgement
Products featuring exposed wood require special care. Over time, the wood will loose its luster and requires conditioning. A food safe oil like mineral oil is best, but any food safe oil or cutting board conditioner will do. Apply a generous layer to the wood portion and let it soak in for a few minutes before wiping off with a rag or paper towel. For specific cutting board conditioners, follow the manufacturers instructions
Resin is highly durable and scratch resistant. However, it can be damaged with heavy use, improper storage or by using sharp knives on the resin. Never cut on the resin portion of your serving board. Resin is not intended for extremely hot objects like cookware but a hot cup of joe won’t cause a problem. store your board carefully (don't put it under your cast iron pan!)
