- You must oil at least 6 wooden utensils, cutting boards, bowls, etc.
- Walnut oil is best
- If allergic to nuts, explain your oil choice
- Oil must be edible and not made from petroleum
Provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (<2 mins):
- Wooden items in need of oiling
- Action shot of you oiling one of the kitchen items
- All the wooden kitchen items you oiled
- Listing the type of oil you used. If other than walnut oil, please explain
It was time to oil our wooden spoon, so I grabbed some pictures while doing it. As you can see, some of these spoons did not get regular oiling for quite some time, and have cracked. Hopefully regularly oiling can keep them alive for a while before they break.
The action shot was hard to get with the phone camera, and shows a rather large amount of coconut oil. I used less on other spoons.
Oh, I also forgot to add: I used coconut oil. It wasn't mentioned in the text of this BB, but was referenced in the videos as a suitable wood oil. This is what we've always used for spoons, knife handles, cutting boards, and such as my partner has had allergic reactions to tree nuts in the past, and coconut isn't a true tree nut.
