What kind of stone is Caesarstone?

When you are considering a new stone benchtop as part of a kitchen renovation, your mind probably wanders to marble and granite and quartz... but likely not Caesarstone. And considering all the choices available, and decisions to make (think size, style, type and colour, just to name a few), you'd be excused if you became a little overwhelmed with it all.

What is Caesarstone?

Caesarstone is a manufactured material, primarily made up of natural quartz aggregates (around 90%), as well as original pigments and enhanced polymer resins. It is resistant to heat, stains, scratches and chips and is non-porous and dense (meaning no sealant is required).

Cons of Caesarstone Benchtops

  • Although Caesarstone is 'heat resistant', it is highly recommended that you do not place anything hot directly on a Caesarstone surface e.g. hot pans and plates.
  • If you are after a 'natural stone' look, Caesarstone does not offer this.
  • Quite heavy in weight.
  • Expensive compared to other options.
