Due to its practically zero porosity, the ultra-compact Dekton® surface is highly resistant to staining in day-to-day use and from chemical products, making it ideal for use as a kitchen worktop and as a surface for other kinds of work, both inside and out.
For general cleaning, Cosentino recommends the use of Q-Action with a sponge or scouring pad. If this product is not available, the best option is to use a neutral soap and water.
In the case of aggressive stains, either from products that are resistant to normal cleaning agents or because they have remained on the work surface without being removed, we recommend using more specific products such as: cream detergents with abrasive particles or solvents (acetone or universal solvent type).

Although Dekton® is an extremely resistant surface, knocks should be avoided in areas which are more exposed (corners, edges, bevels etc.).
Recipients such as frying pans, saucepans, casseroles and coffee makers etc. can be placed directly on the work surface after use.
Electrical apparatuses which give off heat can also be placed on the unprotected surface. Dekton®is designed to withstand utensil temperatures from domestic use.
