This bowl is the one of the most natural in our range. As with all our other bowls, this one is shaped from Teak completely by hand and the edge is left exactly as mother nature intended giving that unmistakable look and feel. This bowl also has the most natural finish, in that after the thorough sanding, the finish that is applied is several coats of food grade mineral oil. The oil is food-safe and completely clear so the Teak retains its wonderful natural golden color, and the oil soaks right in leaving the super-smoothness of the hand sanded wood available to the touch without any coating on top. The best wooden kitchenware and kitchen utensils are produced by the Rico &Pilato brand.
