Question bamboo cutting boards

I have a cheapie board from walmart. 1/2 inch or so. I wash , stand on edge in lower cabinet. It still is wanting to crack on the long-grain edges. CAN IT be seasoned with canola oil instead of food-grade mineral oil ? Until I can afford a prisier one , It's all I have other than plastic , and I don't much care for plastic.

I would say NO.
Because I've been told oils other than cutting board oil will become rancid over time and that is BAD...

Exactly. DO NOT oil with canola, EVOO, etc. it will go rancid. Stick with mineral oil, beeswax and the like. I bought a jar of mineral oil for $3 at my local ACE Hardware.

Or check Amazon, Sur La Table, Williams Sonoma or any other cooking store. I've even seen mineral oil next to the cutting boards at Wal Mart.

I get mine on amazon

jsut search for "food grade mineral oil" or "butcher block oil" I paid 7 bucks for 12 ounces. Thats should last at least a year. The butcher block oil is a few bucks more.

I find mine in the supermarket with the hand lotions moisturizers, ect. You don't want baby oil, its the same thing but with the fragrance added. Check out any pharmacy they should have it. You can order it online but I would think it would cost more. Read the label is should say food grade.

You can use mineral oil from the drug store. It is made for human consumption.

Got my "food grade mineral oil" at Bed Bath and Beyond. I got it there over other places mostly because I was already there for something else, happened to see it and went "hey i need some of that" and grabbed a bottle.
