The Osmo Worktop Oil is touted as being the best for your kitchen worktops! From wooden block to solid oak, the Osomo oil is a durable oil that can also be used for general joinery projects around the house. Finding an oil that is waterproof, durable and long-lasting is hard to find because so many other brands have tried and failed!
This review of the Osmo Top Oil will reveal our professional thoughts, experiences and the test of time. When it comes to oils they look great for the first few months after application only to find the colour has deteriorated!
Does the Osmo top oil stand the test of time? And should you invest in this hyped-up worktop oil?
The Osmo Top Oil
With many tints and shines, the user has many choices to choose from. We like the matt/clear version because it brings out the natural grain, knots and rustic look to any type of hardwood tables and worktops. But, there are many to choose from depending on the type of wood you are going to oil.
With over ten years of sales history, the Osmo brand is well known in the trade. But, so many people are using inferior oils and stains and ruining their block/hardwoods because these inferior products rub-off & eventually discolor!
What Makes Osmo So Special?
Made with natural ingredients the Osmo oil soaks deep making it an excellent option for both new and aged hardwoods. It was long-lasting and food safe after application/drying times.
With over 10 years of solid sales and excellent customer reviews making it one of the most sorts after oils in the trade. If you have not yet heard or even used this oil then we advise you to give it a go!
Food safe once the Osomo oil has been air-dried
Waterproof and durable
Comes in many colours
Two or three coats required, especially on new woodblock
Use a cloth to apply “not” a paintbrush because it will leave streaks
You cannot fault the Osmo oil for worktops. It soaks deep and is perfect for solid wood oak tops. We had a new kitchen installed with aged oak worktops. After applying Osmo Top Oil we were pleasantly surprised that it complemented our kitchen worktops by enhancing both knots and the natural grain of the wood! Its been six months now and we have not need to add anymore coats!
Osmo Top Oil is a must, we use it daily because we run a kitchen fitting business. We have used many cheaper brands but they never cover the same. To get that wow factor and happy customers our first option is Osmo Top Oil! The Kitchen specialists.
Osmo Top Oil Application!
Applying the oil is super easy, but there are a few pointers before you start. If you are applying Osmo Top Oil on the new woodblock then use a cloth and apply with the grain. It might require two or three coats because a new wood block will absorb it very quickly. Rub your block with 120-grade sandpaper to make it’s smooth and to be sure to remove any debris such as sawdust ETC.
For older hardwoods or green oak worktops, rub with 120-grade sandpaper and apply with a cloth “WITH” the grain because this will enhance the grain of your hardwood kitchen tops!
