What is Caesarstone?
Caesarstone is created from up to 93% natural quartz aggregates, organic pigments and enhanced polymer resins. Caesarstone provides a surface with exceptional properties of heat, stain, scratch and chip resistance. Caesarstone is made from natural quartz and therefore has the potential for naturally occurring variations which can help make your slab something truly unique!
Caesarstone benchtops are resistant to cracks, scratches and stains, with low maintenance and non-porous qualities. Although, similar to most quartz-base benchtops, Caesarstone surfaces cannot endure extremely high heat, occasional heat contact is okay, but the Caesarstone benchtops colour may change over time with temperature changes.

Is Caesarstone Suitable as a Kitchen Benchtop?
Yes. Caesarstone® quartz surfaces are virtually non-porous and are perfectly suited for kitchen areas or wherever food is prepared, as they greatly reduce the potential for bacterial growth. Caesarstone benchtops are free of mould and bacterial growth, as endorsed by the Public Health and Safety Company (NSF) in accordance with international NSF 51 sanitary standards.
Uniquely, Caesarstone benchtops are industry approved for installation in hospitals, restaurants, hotels and more.
Caesarstone is made out of up to 93% natural quartz, making Caesarstone benchtops very resistant and durable for the kitchen. However, to avoid damaging the surface or dulling your knife blades, it is always recommended to use a cutting board.
In addition to being durable, Caesarstone benchtops are also scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, and easy to clean, making them a low-maintenance option for any kitchen.
Caesarstone benchtops are heat resistant, as temperatures below 100°C (212°F) do not affect the material. Caesarstone, like any other stone, may be harmed by unexpected and fast temperature fluctuations. As a result, it is always recommended to place hot pots and pans on a heat trivet or wooden chopping board instead of directly on the Caesarstone benchtop, especially when using cooking equipment like electric frying pans, crock pots or toaster ovens.
Is Caesarstone Suitable as a Bathroom Vanity Top?
Yes. Caesarstone is a perfect solution for wet zones and bathroom vanity tops, as it is virtually non–porous, waterproof, mould resistant and mildew resistant, making Caesarstone benchtops ideal for bathroom applications. The durability of Caesarstone also ensures that it can withstand daily wear and tear, which is essential for a high-traffic area like a bathroom.
Additionally, the large slabs provide a sleek and modern aesthetic, minimising joins and, therefore, maintenance. If you’re looking for a stylish and practical option for your bathroom vanity top, Caesarstone is a great choice.

To protect and prolong the life of your outdoor benchtops, it is recommended to cover them when not in use, cleaning any stains or residue as soon as possible and avoid leaving any metal utensils on the surfaces as they may cause rust or other unsightly stains. Additionally, using Caesarstone in outdoor areas can provide a durable and stylish option for outdoor kitchens, patios, and other outdoor spaces.
We do not recommend using any other Caesarstone products externally as they have not been approved for prolonged UV ray exposure.

Can Caesarstone Benchtops Withstand Heat?
Like all stone materials, Caesarstone benchtops are known for their durability and elegance, are indeed heat resistant due to their stone composition. Nonetheless, it is important to note that sudden and extreme changes in surface temperature can cause damage to the benchtop. A useful tip to determine if the heat source is too high for direct contact with your Caesarstone surface is to check if your hand can withstand the heat for a few seconds.
To ensure the longevity of your Caesarstone benchtop, we advise using a heat trivet or wooden chopping board when removing hot pots or pans from the oven or stove. At Made In Stone, we highly recommend taking these precautions to protect your investment and preserve the beauty of your kitchen.
