These materials are made with many different types of wood, which is kiln dried and tends to expand when it gets wet. It may even turn black or discolored if water is left on the top. The butcher black can be left unsealed or sealed with oil or urethane. If left unsealed, the tops will be extremely porous and will stain easily. It will also cut easily and allow bacteria to live and breed in its pores and cuts.
We recommend cleaning a butcher block with de-chlorinated bleach and water solution. The butcher block also burns easily and should be used with a trivet for hot items. If the butcher block tops are sealed, they should not be used as a cutting surface. They also can still absorb moisture from the dishwater humidity and at the edges of the sink and cooktop cutouts. The top will warp or swell around the sink and can eject the sink as the cutout constricts.
