Frequently asked questions
If I buy T&G’s woodware products am I destroying rain-forests ?
The short answer is no, you aren't. T and G Woodware have held FSC® certification since 1999, and over 70 of their products are certified to come from forests managed according to FSC® agreed social, economic and environmental standards. They are continually striving to ensure as many of their products as possible come from well-managed and sustainable forests or plantations, and are looking to include more woodware from European FSC® sources to their range.
Plastic boards are often recommended for hygiene in the kitchen, should I replace my wood boards with plastic?
Wood is remarkable in that there are mechanisms that operate to inhibit the growth of bacteria and which eventually die in a few hours after the board has been dried. Tests conducted in 2 Universities in the U.S.A. have shown that,when considering hygiene, wooden boards perform better than plastic boards, in most domestic kitchens.
How do I care for chopping boards?
The most hygienic chopping board is a properly cleaned chopping board. Do not submerge them in water, put them in direct contact with heat (windowsill, microwave, oven) and do not put them in the dishwasher. To clean your chopping boards simply run them under a running tap to remove any food residue, wipe dry with a cloth and stand them on their side. To extend the life of your board it is recommended that you occasionally rub in some T&G wood treatment oil. Properly looked after your chopping boards will be inherited by your children.
I have a T&G marble board, can i use this for cutting or chopping?
Although marble looks great in any kitchen and looks as though it is very robust, it is actually quite a soft material. Use of sharp knives will make small cuts in the surface. Marble is also a very porous material, so it is recommended you avoid exposing your marble boards to acidic food (citrus fruits etc).
