Careful - Hot!
Engineered stone is more heat resistant, durable and hard-wearing than most other stone surfaces, including most granites, marble and limestone. But it does need protection from very high temperatures (above 150°C) or sudden extreme temperature changes.
Therefore, we suggest that hot pans and pots never be placed directly on the benchtop. We also recommend a hot pad or trivet be placed under cooking units such as electric frying pans, crock pots, kettles and toaster ovens.
Life’s inevitable stains and spills can usually be cleaned up easily with mild detergent or cleaner and water. To remove stuck on materials, gently scrape away the excess with a plastic putty knife or non-scratch pad and then wipe with lukewarm water. Nail varnish or chewing gum stains can be removed with denatured alcohol, rinsing well afterward.
For extra stubborn stains, a non scratch Scotch-BriteTM pad is recommended along with a non abrasive cleaner, which won’t dull the surface shine. We recommend Caesarstone cream cleaner, and Lithofin Easy Clean.
It’s tough, but not indestructible
Like any other surface, Engineered stone can be permanently damaged if exposed to strong chemicals and solvents that affect its physical properties.
Avoid the use of strong chemicals and solvents or highly abrasive cleaning agents such as oven or grill cleaners, and dishwasher polishing agents that have pH levels higher than eleven. Products containing oils or powders may leave a residue and should be rinsed off thoroughly. Never clean your Caesarstone surface with products that contain Trichlorethane or Methylene Chloride, such as paint removers or strippers.
Should your surface accidentally be exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with warm water to neutralize the effect.
