Customer Reviews:

  • Waste of money
    Why would anyone pay 5 times more for this than mineral oil? You can get mineral oil at any drug store and it is 100% food safe....more info
  • Fair
    I have used three diff brands - Tru Bamboo, Snow River and John Boos. I like the last one ( John Boos )the best. It is thicker than the other two. It does a better coating job....more info
  • Great Product!!!
    Completely free of any odor, color... anything!!! I have a very large island with a butcher block top and with a very small amount was able to cover the entire island in a matter of seconds!!! I feel safe using this product with a baby in the house also. Buy won't regret it!!!...more info
  • Expensive
    The Wood Oil Product really does the job, but I feel it is way overpriced. Other reviewers sited that Mineral Oil could do the job just as well, and they were correct. I tried mineral oil and it is just as efficient....more info

    Dear Amazon:
    By way of your association with Williams-Sonoma, through whom I purchased a beautiful birch pastry board, I found the need for your Snow River Oil, with which to make and keep it beautiful during my winter season baking routines. Thank you for the phenomenon of secure, one-stop-shopping on the internet. Fantastic quality.
    Best always. ...more info
  • wood oil
    I bought this for my new cutting board. It is great. Keeps it new...more info
  • Great stuff, hard to find elsewhere
    I really like this for wooden kitchen utensil and cutting boards. Other oils I can find are smelly with solvents, this one is just perfect....more info
  • So far so good
    Use it on my bamboo cutting board. No weird smell. Works pretty good so far....more info
  • Mineral oils are same
    I compared this Snow River Wood oil with other more expensive mineral oils, like John boo's.
    Only difference is just a thickness. John Boos oil is thicker, so it does a better job with one coat.
    If you apply this oil twice, there is no difference.
    It's very easy to apply to any wood surface. And the treated surface is very water repellent for a long time.
    The color of end grain gets much darker than plain grains.

    After trying three different mineral oils, I found that basically all mineral oils are same. So I don't need to buy these expensive ones. Just go to any drug store and buy food safe mineral oil with a fraction of cost.

    When mixing pure Bee wax in this oil(use heat), I could get a much better finished surface and a real good sweet smell too.

  • Great wood protection!
    I use this on my wooden carving board and it works great. It penetrates really well and there's barely anything on the paper towel when I wipe it off again. It also seems to help repel water and meat juices, which protects my board from staining, and makes washing and drying my board very easy....more info
  • As Described
    Arrived on time and does a good job. A must for wooden cutting boards....more info
  • Works great
    I've only used this a couple of times but it does seem to work well....more info
  • Snow River Wood Oil
    What can I say? It's oil for wood/bamboo cutting boards and works as advertised. I'm sure I could have purchased regular food grade mineral oil for less money but this is 'specially' for cutting boards so at least I know what I bought and feel safe using it....more info
  • Fantastic
    Very nice oil, brings out nicely the texture of natural wood. Works on raw pine (untreated) as well as other furniture. Does not leave greasy feel, only shine. It is very liquid, more than other oils I've used. Makes application easier. No sent to speak of....more info
  • Great Deal and Does the Job
    Some oils are so expensive; this one the other hand is a fantastic deal. Works great on my bamboo board....more info
  • The Why of Wood Oils
    Wood and bamboo oils are simply food grade mineral oils. You should use a wood oil in your kitchen instead of vegetable oil because mineral oil does not break down or become rancid. Wood oil gives sheen and water and stain resistance to wood items such as butcher block, cutting boards, pizza peels and wooden salad bowls. You can use wood oil to darken and restore the appearance of faded wooden knife handles or dried out wood cutting boards. This is a must have for any kitchen with wood items. If you buy any sort of wood gift this is a thoughtfull add on which will help your gift to both maintain its beauty and last longer.

    With the price increase for this product from $3.99 to $6.99 you should consider Joyce Chen Bamboo Wood Oil, 8 Ounces which is an effectively identical product priced about $3.00 less at $3.95 for 8 oz (but not available as a 4 for 3 offer).

    I actually use mineral oil laxative on my wood kitchen items ($2 for 16 oz. at many drug stores) which is the same thing. Clearly the laxative bottle is less than aesthetically pleasing and is embarassing to leave around the kitchen. My wife keeps hiding the bottle in fact. But No it won't have a laxative effect if you use it on your cutting boards or knife handles.
