Our classic 12-inch wooden Dipped Serving Bowl is made for sharing. A stunning addition to your table, this bowl will look gorgeous serving up your favorite salad. Whichever color you choose, the colored portion is a food safe, rubber, which makes the bowl durable and slip resistant. The wood is left natural. We believe beauty is in organic lines and natural movement, which means the color dipped portion may vary and may show more or less wood as you move around the wooden bowl. There also may be small bubble marks. These are a result of the natural reaction and texture of the wood to the food safe rubber dip. Wood grains are part of the natural beauty of each bowl and colors can vary from light to dark brown or even a greyish hue. These colors should not be construed as flaws but as part of the uniqueness of the item.
Wash with mild soap, rinse and dry immediately with soft cloth. To avoid warping or cracking, please don't soak your wooden products in water, put in dishwasher, scrub with abrasive material, heat in oven or microwave or leave in direct sunlight. We recommend seasoning as it penetrates wooden products and prevents drying and cracking in addition to adding a soft luster finish. Rub a thin layer of food safe wood preserver (we recommend this one ) onto entire wood surface with a clean cloth. Let stand 15 minutes, then buff off any excess. On new pieces, use wood preserver once a week for the first month to ensure penetration. Apply 2-3 coats on new untreated wood. After that, use once a month or whenever wood seems dull and dry.
