Granite vs. Silestone vs. Marble
What is the difference between granite and Silestone?
Silestone is a quartz product that includes other raw materials to improve its durability and design possibilities. Unlike granite, Silestone doesn’t require a sealer.
What is the difference between marble and Silestone?
Marble is a softer stone and therefore stains and scratches appear more easily on the surface. Silestone is mainly made of quartz, one of the hardest natural minerals, which makes it resistant to scratching, staining and impact. Visit the section.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Use a damp, non-abrasive cloth or soft sponge with a mild soap or detergent to wipe the surface to remove any debris or materials on the surface.
Although Silestone can withstand high temperatures for short periods of time, its performance varies with respect to different factors like thickness, color, location, etc. For this reason, it is not recommended that the product be exposed to sustained contact with a heat source, nor should hot saucepans, frying pans, deep-fat fryers, etc be placed on it. The use of a hot pad or trivet is recommended in such situations.
