Care Instructions for Acaciaware Acacia Wood Serveware
Simply wash the item with warm soapy water and air dry. If your acacia wood charcuterie tray, appetizer serving tray ever appears dry, treat it with mineral oil and the grain will be restored to its original beautiful condition. Acaciaware can handle moderate heat but cannot withstand hot pans or baking dishes taken directly from the oven. None of our serveware should be used as a trivet for hot pans or casseroles out from the oven. Acacia wood is not dishwasher or microwave safe.
Why is Acacia Wood so Durable?
Acacia wood is naturally harder than most other woods found on the market. This means it can be sanded to a smoother finish, which makes it great for creating smooth surfaces like dining tables, cutting boards or beautiful acacia wood salad bowls and serving trays.
While some people might choose oak where a hard wood is needed (like floors), acacia wood is even harder. In fact, acacia wood is even more durable than oak, mahogany, and maple.
The hardness of a wood is rated on an industry wide standard known as the Janka test. The Janka test measures the force required to embed a .444 inch steel ball into the wood by half its diameter. This test is one of the best measures of the ability of a wood specie to withstand denting and wear. It is also a good indicator of how hard a specie is to saw, mill and nail. The Janka hardness measurement of acacia wood is 1700, as opposed to walnut's 1100.
Acacia wood is resistant to decay because the tree deposits in the heartwood have many waste substances that are preservatives, which render the wood unpalatable to insects. This makes the wood dense and thus resistant to penetration by water and other agents of decay.
