My wooden cuttingboard also must be oiled periodically—quite a bit when new, but much less now.  I get a food grade mineral oil from Sur La Table.  It lasts a long time. My thinking is that it is so refined, it can’t go rancid?  Only a guess, but I’ve never had any trouble with rancidity or odors.

That said, I’ve also always heard that a rolling pin should only be wiped off, also.  That said, I don’t think mineal oil would bother it, considering my experience with the cutting board.

My understanding is that mineral oil never goes rancid.  After all, it isn’t of animal or plant origin.
