The Slate Cheese Board is an elegant, food-safe serving plate for hors d’oeuvres and cheeses. Slate is a special material that’s featured in the Museum’s design collection. Gotten from a quarry in upstate New York, every slate cheese board is packaged with anti-slip padded feet and a burlap bag. The smoother than chalk Soapstone pencils are included to identify cheeses on the board. Dishwasher-safe.
Cheese must be served at room temperature if it is to be savored in a proper manner. A beautifully handcrafted slate cheese board makes sure that it’s just cool enough.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR SLATE
Every one of the products is treated and sealed to be food secure. Crumbs, soapstone, liquids, and chalk wipe off easily with a damp towel or sponge. Cheese boards could be washed with a dish soap and sponge as well. Boards that don’t have cork feet on the bottom are dishwasher secure.
To arrive at a rustic and natural look, we employ cutting tools that, over time, might result in chipping across the edges of slate goods. This is a usual occurrence and doesn’t compromise the integrity of the slate.
CARING FOR YOUR SLATE
In a bid to maintain a slate cheese board for several years, wipe it down with one or two drops of mineral oil around two times yearly. Mineral oil assists in protecting the integrity of the slate and keeps a slightly polished look.
Slate happens to be one of the most long-lasting, naturally occurring stones that are available. Slate shingles, which occur on building and home roofs throughout the country, normally withstand the elements for two centuries (200 years) or more. It is the stone that a majority of synthetic tiles want to be.
Just like what’s obtainable with slate roofing, a slate cheese board is made to last for several years. Slate cheese boards are at least 3/8″ thick all the time.
