  • Wash your Ironwood products in warm water and soap.

  • Never submerge acacia wood in water or put it in the dishwasher!
  • Regular oiling will help to maintain the deep luster of the Acacia wood and ensure your Ironwood products last for years to come. 
  • When your Ironwood cutting board first arrives it will be thirsty, oil your board once a day for the first week to "season" the board.
  • Once your board is seasoned, oil it once a month for the first year, and at least once a year for life. 
  • Our food-grade blend of mineral and citrus oils is great at preventing cracks. 
  • Don't use an oil that can go bad like olive or canola oil.
  • To deep clean and deodorize your board or bowl make a paste with coarse salt and lemon juice.
Apply Salt: Sprinkle the cutting board with coarse salt like kosher salt.
Scour the surface: Using a lemon half with the cut side down, scour the surface while squeezing to release lemon juice.
Let sit, then scrape off: Let sit for at least 5 minutes, then scrape away the dirty liquid using a bench scraper or metal spatula.
Rinse: Give the surface a final rinse with a clean sponge. Prop up to dry.
  • It is highly unlikely that your board will warp if you avoid submerging it in water and oil it regularly.
  • If your board warps, wet the warped side of the board and place a heavy object on top and let gravity do its thing. A glass baking dish that is a similar size as the board works well. 
  • Feel free to contact us at with any questions.

Salad Spring Tongs

Great design. But the wood seems rough and moreover there's some strange wood pulp like debris and sticky stuff mostly on the part that picks up the salad. It will not wash off and so I've not been too enthused or comfortable using them. I've never felt or seen this on a wood product before - especially hardwood.
I expected a quality hardwood finish like with my other hardwood kitchen items. I wish this were not so.

Nice woodwork

Beautiful and functional! A very nice addition to a wooden salad set. They do not lay flat (my fault for not looking deeper at the description) so not exactly what I had wanted. All very satisfied

Its a lovely functional tool to handle salads.

Overall a nice tool. Would have liked a way to keep them closed for storage.

Love it!!!

Very nice!!! I love this for my salad ?? highly recommend!!! Excellent quality and exactly what I was looking for, great with my teakwood salad bowls!

Crowd pleasers

I first saw these from a local caterer that she used when serving. I loved them and she led me to find them here. They�re wonderfully made and easy to use and clean. The only downside is storage, I don�t compact well.
