Did you know, quartz kitchen countertops and cookies have gone hand in hand for far longer than you think? Quartz kitchen countertops create a kitchen space designed to give you room for family time as well as pursuing your home baking career. When you choose to install quartz countertops in your home you get aesthetics, functionality, low-risk, and cost-effectiveness all in one package.
When it comes to making memories in the kitchen easy there are many factors that come into play: lighting, flooring, wall finishes, fittings and fixtures and more. One component that stands out the most amongst them all is the kitchen countertops. Countertops are where everything happens in a kitchen. The chopping, frying, mixing and all. And, quartz happens to be a great material for this purpose. The sturdiness of quartz and resistance to heat, scratch, etch and stain puts it in a class of its own. Here are a few reasons why bakers choose quartz:
Quartz Countertops Are Not Porous
Envision the hassle of cleaning up your kitchen countertop after baking your famous homemade cookies. Porous surfaces are susceptible to oil stains and flour residue can be a hassle. These worries fade away when baking with quartz countertops. Unlike other stone surfaces like marble, quartz is not porous. That simply means your countertops do not have to be resealed. Quartz countertops are resistant to stain, mildew and mold growth. And, cleaning quartz countertops are simple as they can be wiped off with a soft cloth.
Quartz Kitchen Countertops Are Durable
Quartz remains one of the hardest countertop surfaces. It has been proven to be harder than even marble or granite. Once your quartz countertop is installed in your kitchen, it is likely your quartz countertop would last a lifetime with the proper care and maintenance. Although quartz is heat resistant, we warn against placing hot pots and pans directly from your stove or oven onto your quartz countertop. Just to add, your quartz countertop won’t crack or succumb to scratches and etches from your kids playing or other accidents.
Quartz Countertops Are Acid Resistant
Yes, it is true quartz countertops are resistant to acid. Since quartz countertop surfaces are impervious to food and liquid spillage, you don’t need to worry when baking your lemon bars. They won’t get damaged in the event of a spill. No matter what ingredients you might be baking with though, always take preventative measures to keep your countertop surfaces as clean and tidy as possible.
Cold Countertop Surfaces You Can Trust
When the kitchen gets hot, you can count on your quartz countertops to keep their cool. Quartz countertops don’t conform to the temperature around them. This means your butter won’t melt when you don’t want it to. It also means your cookies will cool fast, and you won’t have to wait too long to cut them into any shape you like, such as a gingerbread man or Christmas tree. In summer, their cold surfaces can be a safe space for your family to sit, eat and talk.
