Kneading an Oak countertop

Pasta makers and bread bakers, if you’re not working on Oak worktops in the UK then you are doing it wrong. Oak is the most popular choice for kitchen tops and it’s not hard to see why, its durability and gorgeous colour are the envy of every discerning Englishman and as they say; ‘England was built on oak.’ This centuries-old choice for worktops is still as popular as ever, even within the modern home, as a symbol of resilience and longevity and is the prime choice for many designers to place in the kitchen as the heart of the home.

The hardest wood surface

The durability of a hardwood surface like Oak is unmatched, customers couldn’t ask for better when it comes to durability in their kitchen, which is an important thing for those who spend a lot of time honing their cooking and baking skills in this space. The longevity of an Oak kitchen surface is guaranteed which is proven by some of the oldest heritage kitchens in England still boasting these old work surfaces.

Colour

Often utilising pale wood with warm hues that set a kitchen apart, the colour of oak is a favorite among many designers who enjoy its versatility. Those warm hues can deepen depending on each individual tree and can produce darker tones in some cases, which many enjoy as much as the blonder wood tones, which one comes to expect with oak countertops. The interesting thing about wood is that it can change in colour over the years depending on how it’s treated, this is favored among people who love spending time in their kitchen as eventually, their countertops tell a story.

Hygienic

Any cook or baker understands the importance of maintaining good hygiene while they work and the choice in using wood for this purpose is not only for its aesthetic appeal. Wood is a naturally antibacterial surface which, when combined with the treatment process it goes through before being fitted into a kitchen, is ideal for bakers and anyone else who needs to put food directly onto the work surface. From dough to the chopping of raw meats, the wooden work surface is an ideal addition to any kitchen.

Function

Wooden oak countertops are a favourite of bakers as they are perfect for dusting with flour and kneading dough all day long, they offer a highly hygienic and heat resistant surface so bakers never need to worry about cracking a glass dish on a cold granite surface when it comes out the oven.

Sustainable

Customers looking to create a cooking space that they love with an oak worktop can rest assured that the environmental responsibility taken by the company in the UK is of utmost importance to the supplier who is in charge of each countertop from start to finish. From choosing the best trees to harvest at the right age for the best wood to creating the custom surface, there is no element that is overlooked when it comes to waste or sustainability.
