How to Care for Wooden Bowls

Product Care (for all wood products): Wood bowls should not be soaked in water or used in a dishwasher or microwave. To clean the surface, a wet cloth or non-abrasive scrub pad should be used. Following cleaning, dry the surface with a dry cloth. For all wood products utilized for kitchen use (including bowls, cutting boards and utensils), it is recommended an occassional coating of mineral oil be applied (to the wood surface only) This process preserves the moisture content of the wood.

      I have a chest (looks like a single layer silverware chest) but inside are 12

      colorful small bowls. I bought this at an estate sale. The sale was for a

      Jewish Medical Doctor. Can you tell me about this item?

      I have a Lipper Dark Cherry Salad Bowl with 4 small salad bowls and Salad Hands. I didn't get them as a present .. I bought them myself. I just love the wood pattern and the color is so rich! This would be a great present to give to anyone setting up a household OR anyone who doesn't have one already! Angel blessings on this lens.
