Since wood is a natural item there can be variations in the wood that could lead to cracking if improperly handled. Never put any wooden items in the dishwasher, submerge in water or the freezer. Please inspect all the items before any use and discard if any breaks or cracks are seen.
Natural wood items may contain knots or weak areas that can crack or break with forceful impact or improper handling. Always inspect your products before each use, and discard them immediately if you notice any cracks or breaks.
