Care of Your Bowl

Care of Your Riverside Bowl

This bowl will last a life time and can become a family heirloom if you follow a few simple rules:

  •  The bowl has a food safe finish and you can put anything in it you intend to eat.
  •  Do not place bowl in the microwave, oven, or refrigerator.
  •  Wood is tough, but can sometimes be brittle.  Avoid dropping or other rough treatment– especially on the more fragile rim of the bowl.
  •  When finished with your meal, empty the bowl and wipe with a paper towel.  Then, wipe with a damp cloth and dry with a dish towel.
  •  Use mild dish soap and warm water for stubborn items.  Dry immediately with a towel.
  •  Do not soak bowl in water.  Dry with a towel after cleaning.
  •  Do not store with vegetable oil on the wood– it can turn rancid.
  •  Periodically (every 6-12 months), wipe lightly with mineral oil.  Let the oil soak in for a few minutes, and wipe with a towel.
