Care & Maintenance Guide to Avoid Chipped Caesarstone Caesarstone is a 93% quartz based product that has outstanding properties to ensure ease of maintenance and longevity of your surfaces. It will withstand exposure to tea, wine, vinegar, lemon juice and strongly coloured substances.   Everyday Cleaning Caesarstone requires very little maintenance to keep the surface looking like new. For everyday, routine cleaning of Caesarstone we recommend wiping the surface with warm soapy water (a mild detergent) and a damp cloth or alternatively use a quality spray and wipe type cleaner. Food Preparation To avoid damage we always recommend cutting on an appropriate cutting board and never directly on the Caesarstone surface. Polishing As Caesarstone is virtually non-porous it will keep its lustrous gloss and ultra smooth surface without polishing and it never needs sealing. Heat Resistance Caesarstone will tolerate brief exposures to moderately hot temperatures, however prolonged direct contact with, or radiated heat from very hot pots can cause thermal shock, discolouration or damage. Therefore we do not recommend placing hot pots, pans, electric frying pans, oven trays, etc. directly from the hotplate or out of the oven onto the surface of Caesarstone. We always recommend the use of a hot pad or trivet to place hot items on. Tough? Yes. Indestructible? No. As with any surface, Caesarstone can be permanently damaged by exposure to strong chemicals and solvents that undermine its physical properties. Do not use products that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride, such as paint removers or stripper. Avoid any highly aggressive cleaning agents like oven cleaner that have high alkaline/pH levels. Should the surface be accidentally exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect. Original source: Caesarstone Care & Maintenance...
