Dekton Worktops and Other Surfaces
Dekton surfaces are a result of a unique mixture of real quartz crystal, porcelain, and glass.

Over 20 minerals have been extracted from nature to create Dekton, a unique layering. Dekton is one of the best materials for kitchen countertops since it is extremely tolerant of heat, spills, and abrasion and comes in a variety of color schemes. Dekton Worktops demonstrate unrestricted creativity in both features and reliability.
Silestone Worktops and Other Surfaces
Silestone is a sturdy, compact, extraordinarily rigid, non-porous homogeneous slab created artificially. These engineered slabs are predominantly quartz as they are manufactured by bonding 94% natural quartz crystals with resins and adhesives. The Silestone worktop is much harder than the knife if we compare it in terms of Moh's hardness. The resin used in it is baked with its patented antibacterial formula, which is derived from silver ions that actively kill bacteria and other microbes. Silestone quartz is the only one with this characteristic thus making them a popular option for customers of residential as well as commercial settings as they make hygienic options for use in places like residential kitchens, the food industry, and healthcare.

Engineered Worktop Maintenance
Engineered stone worktops do not require high maintenance, however, basic care and maintenance are necessary for them to look striking.
Use a soft damp cloth soaked in warm water and soap solution for gentle wiping of the surface.
Scrape off the dried remains of food preparation with blunt-edged instruments. Make sure you are very gentle in scraping the surface.
Use a degreasing agent which is safe and bleach-free for surfaces to remove the tough greasy membrane from the worktop surface. Follow this step by rinsing the surface with warm water and drying the surface clean.
Cleaning the surface immediately can go a long way in making the countertop last longer. Though engineered stone worktops do resist stains for a brief period, permanent stains can occur when coffee, tea, or wine is spilled. In case of spillage, the surface must be quickly cleaned.
Engineered countertops have excellent longevity, given they are protected from extremely hot temperatures using mats or trivets to place crock pots, hot pans, and electric skillets.
Avoid placing an object that is extremely hot, directly on your Engineered stone worktops because there will be a higher chance of damage to the countertop.
Engineered surfaces are although stain-resistant but not scratch-proof. Do not chop food directly on your workstation. Doing so will not only make your knives blunt over time but also pose a high risk of damaging your worktop surface. To avoid this, use a chopping board.
Keep harsh cleaning detergents and chemicals away from your worktop surfaces as they run the risk of degrading the surface. Even if they spill by accident, use a warm cloth with a mild washing liquid to wipe down the counter and dry them clean.
