Advantages of a Butchers Block:

• Wooden chopping boards are much more hygienic
• Extremely durable but also germ-free
• Natural and antibacterial surface of the wood
• Cleaning the cutting board is very easy
• Blocks much firmer than chopping boards
• Lasts for years! The cutting surface of the chopping board will remain beautiful and even for a long time
Meats require quartering, deboning, chopping and filleting, which require a larger working surface that is also sturdy enough to stay in place and not be damaged - a Butchers Block is what you need.

Recommendation from an end user:
Looking after your block:
To cater for wear and tear on the block, it is recommended that it is rotated weekly and turned over monthly. This size of block weighs approx 50kg.
Clean daily with a wire brush or a block scraper, then use a cloth + sanitiser. Dry cloth first, do not use a lot of water on the block, since it is very absorbent.
This procedure can be documented as part of your HACCP plan and is easily demonstrable during any audits.
