Use a food-safe butcher block oil or mineral oil, rather than food oils like olive oil that will go rancid.Use the rule of hand when deciding how you should wash and care for the bowl; i.e. do not put the bowl where you would not put your hand.  No dishwashers, ovens, freezers, or microwave.The bowl should be cleaned with soapy water after every use, and oiled every 5-7 washings.If for display, make sure to dust it every month, and oil every six months

What to do with lacquered bowls? We actually make two types of lacquered bowls. The first is lacquered on the outside and oiled on the inside, and for these bowls, use the same care as you would an oiled bowl. Here are a few tips for bowls we have lacquered on the inside and out.

Unlike our oiled bowls, these require no oil.  However you should wash after every use.The Steins and Tumblers have a food-safe epoxy on the inside and outside, making them very low maintenance and still safe to drink out of.The epoxy we use is safe whether you put warm or cold liquids in it, so you can use it for your coffee, and your tea!
