How is teak for cutting boards

The best way to understand if teak is an ideal cutting board choice is to look at its attributes. For instance, consider the hardness levels of the wood to know how well it can stand up to knife cuts and scratches. 

Other factors, like its resistance to moisture and temperature, safety for food contact, aesthetics, and maintenance, are also crucial.

Below is how teak fairs for each of these characteristics.


The hardness levels of any wood determine how well it can hold up to a knife blade when used as a cutting board. The harder the wood, the better it can withstand scratches and knife cuts. But when the wood is extremely hard, it can damage the knife.

Teak wood has a Janka hardness rating of 1,070 lb-f (pounds-force). The rating is considered medium on the Janka Hardness Scale. As a cutting board material, this rating means teak can withstand the regular wear and tear of cutting food. Because the wood isn’t too hard, your knife should also remain sharp.

Teak also contains some amounts of silica, the material used in glass making. While we know glass as a material that can dull blades and tools, the amount of silica in teak is minimal enough not to cause any damage. So, the upper hand is the wood won’t easily scar or wear even with regular use.

Resistance to Moisture and Temperature

Teak is a tropical hardwood, naturally resistant to temperature and humidity changes. However, it performs exceptionally well when compared to other materials. Teak’s water-resistive properties are because of a perfect combination of tight wood grain, high oil content, and tensile strength.

The wood won’t crack or warp under extreme temperatures or moisture because of its natural oil content. The oils help mitigate moisture and temperature changes. Also, the teak maintains its beauty and integrity even when exposed to UV light.

Food Safety

When choosing a cutting board, food safety should be the top priority. You need to pick boards made from non-toxic materials that don’t react with the food and cause any health risks.

The risk of contamination for teak is low because the oil doesn’t leach into food products. Because of the tight grain structure, the wood also doesn’t absorb any liquid or spills. So no bacteria or other microbes can grow in the wood, making it a safe option for contact with food.


Apart from its functional use as a cutting board, teak wood’s visual appeal is unmatched. The strong and dense wood has an attractive golden-brown shade and a unique grain pattern that brighten up any kitchen décor.


Keeping your cutting board in good condition is essential to its longevity and usability. Teak wood has low maintenance requirements compared to other materials. All you need to do to keep the board in good condition is clean it with warm soapy water and wipe it down after use.what is teak wood

Once you have sliced and diced your food, the next step is to clean it up. It means exposing the cutting board surface to water and detergents. The same is true while sanitizing the board with hot water or steam. Not all materials can withstand changes in temperature and moisture.
