I just bought a new Teak Cutting Board from EverythingKitchens. It was this board: https://teakhaus.com/collections/bes...p-810996010156
For a week, every so often, I have been rubbing a light coating of mineral oil on the board, careful not to over-oil too quickly so it doesn't expand. I am using Thirteen Chefs oil found here: https://www.amazon.com/Mineral-Cutti.../dp/B01B5ECU3O
With the light reflecting off the board, it looks to be well seasoned for an initial setting and ready to rinse/clean and use it. Except a 1 inch thick 10 inch long streak of wood that will not stop looking dry no matter what I do. It looks like a grey wood streak.
Is this just "oh well, all boards have a streak of wood that won't ever look oiled."? Or is this return-able? There is also a knot less than half a cm diameter that also seems to not take to the oil, but I would have overlooked that for sure... unless you tell me I shouldn't for a $100+ board.
I'm an average chef who is used to plastic cutting boards, so I'm hoping your expertise helps. Thanks!
