Q. How durable is CaesarStone?
A. Being made from Quartz CaesarStone is non porous and therefore very hard and also stain resistant. However, like most materials, excessive force and/or pressure may cause damage to the surface.
Q. How stain-resistant is CaesarStone?
A. CaesarStone's Quartz Surface is non-porous ie does not allow liquids to pass through it. Quartz in itself is an inert, non-absorbent mineral and therefore makes CaesarStone's surfaces resist most stains. It is important to note that CaesarStone's stain-resistant qualities make sealants and waxes unnecessary.
Q. Does CaesarStone withstand heat?
A. CaesarStone is more heat resistant than other stone surfaces including most granite, marble and limestone; and is not affected by temperatures lower than 150°C (300°F). However, like all stone material, CaesarStone can be damaged by sudden and rapid temperature changes. Therefore, we suggest that hot pots and pans never be directly placed on the surface. We also recommend a hot pad or trivet be placed on the surface under cooking units such as electric frying pans, crock pots, or roaster ovens.
Q. How do I maintain CaesarStone's natural beauty?
A. Simply wipe with warm water and soap using a damp cloth or paper towel. Grease, grime, hairspray, or messy makeup spills easily disappear! Normal cleaning with a damp cloth will keep your CaesarStone polished surface looking like new and to avoid dulling the surface, make sure to use a non-abrasive cleaner.
Q. Can CaesarStone be used in food preparation areas?
A. CaesarStone quartz surfaces are nonporous and are perfectly suited for kitchen areas, or wherever food is prepared, as they greatly reduce the potential for bacterial growth. CaesarStone surfaces are free of mold and bacteria due to the use of quartz as a key ingredient. Endorsed by the Public Health and Safety Company (NSF) in accordance with international NSF 51 sanitary standards, CaesarStone surfaces are industry approved for installation in hospitals, restaurants, hotels and more.
Q. How do I remove stubborn stains?
A. Use a damp, soft cloth with warm water and soap. If needed, apply non-abrasive, household cleaners (a non-abrasive cleaner will not dull the surface shine). To remove adhered material such as food, gum, nail polish or even dried paint, first scrape away excess material with a plastic knife and then use a damp cloth to remove any marks or residual dirt. For extra-stubborn stains, a 3M Scotch-Brite pad is recommended along with a detergent recommended by your local CaesarStone distributor.
Q. Do I need to apply a sealer to CaesarStone?
No. CaesarStone quartz surfaces are totally non-porous, and you will never have to use a sealer or any other kind of wax.
Q. Can CaesarStone be used outdoors?
A. Some of our customers have installed CaesarStone outdoors, but we do not recommend this application as the products have not been approved for prolonged exposure to UV rays.
Why choose CaesarStone worktops for your kitchen?
CaesarStone kitchen work surfaces combine both the natural qualities inherent in quartz with a wide colour choice making it an ideal surface for your home. Being a composite of quartz and resin Caesarstone is stronger than granite with the added advantage of being non-porous which removes the need for sealants and waxes.
