Looking for Wide-Plank Black Walnut? CafeCountertops introduces Continuous-Stave, Wide-Plank and End-Grain construction options in response to growing homeowner and architectural demand. Although our flagship-Euro-Star product remains unmatched in value and durability, these premium options are also top performers.
Continuous-Stave, Wide-Plank and End-Grain products are entirely handcrafted from lumber in our factory. Not all woods are readily available in these construction options. Black Walnut, Black Cherry and Sapele Mahogany are most readily available, as are USA Hard Maple and Natural Maple, two woods that aren’t a part of our standard Café line. Most of the other woods in our standard Café line are available in these construction options at longer lead times. Dark Chocolate Beech is not available in continuous-stave, wide plank, or end-grain options.
CafeCountertops has done extensive testing to confirm what our tech experts had already advised. Firstly, your wood countertop is a lean, mean bacteria-chomping machine in its own right. The only cleaning method we can officially recommend is to wash your countertop once a week with our Gentle Wood Wash (available on Amazon). This ph-neutral soap will clean the top properly without harming the finish.
If you must use a disinfectant, we can’t guarantee you won’t harm your finish, but our testing did reveal certain best practices. Spray disinfectants such as Lysol and Microban are preferable to harsh cleaners. MODERATION is key. Lightly spray the surface, wait only the absolute minimum recommended time for disinfection (typically 30 seconds), then rinse the surface thoroughly with a damp cloth, then dry with a towel. Wait a minimum of one week between treatments.
