Quartz stone cabinet countertops are better in hardness and wear resistance than artificial stone cabinet countertops, and have better heat resistance, but they are definitely not so powerful. Whether it is artificial stone or quartz stone, you cannot put the hot pot directly on the countertop. Expansion and contraction will cause local molecular structure changes. Whether it is quartz stone or artificial stone if you do not use potholders, place high-temperature objects directly on the cabinet countertops. Over time, the surface of the high-temperature objects will be different from the bright parts of other countertops.

Disadvantages: The shape is single, complex shapes are not allowed, problems and bumps are not easy to repair. Because of the high hardness and density of quartz, it cannot be seamlessly spliced, and it is not easy to make complex shapes. The relatively high price of artificial stone.

Maintenance: The heat expansion and contraction of the pot just after cooking will cause the internal molecules of the material to change. Over time, it will cause the surface of the table to become yellow and lose luster or cracks. It is best to place a small pot pad or shelf on the countertop to prevent the overheated pot bottom from directly contacting the countertop. Let cool for a few minutes before placing hot pots. Pay attention to regular waxing at ordinary times, which can effectively extend the life and appearance of the countertop.

Cleaning: The liquid substances used in daily use will not penetrate the inside. The liquid that is placed on the surface for a long time can be wiped off with a rag with clean water or a cleaning agent such as Jierliang. If necessary, the residual material on the surface can be scraped off with a blade.
