Known as an ultra-compact surface, Dekton stone combines materials used to make glass, quartz, and porcelain countertops to create a new product altogether. Using a unique fabrication process called sintered particle technology, Dekton stone is manufactured under intense heat and pressure to produce a kitchen benchtop that's indestructible! Easy to maintain, Dekton kitchen benchtops are an advancement from quartz (engineered stone). Both are top-rated options, and for a good reason.

Dekton stone is highly durable against stains and scratches without the need for sealant. That's its main point of difference from granite, marble or engineered quartz surfaces. Rather than simply being heat resistant, as most stone countertops are Dekton stone, benchtops are heat proof. No need to worry about a hot pan on a bare surface - Dekton kitchen benchtops can withstand fire. Dekton stone slabs are a large format perfect for kitchen benchtops that can be manufactured without a seam, leaving you with a sleeker and versatile surface. Also, UV resistant, Dekton stone benchtops are perfect for indoor and outdoor applications.

There are so many reasons to love Dekton stone benchtops. They're versatile, hygienic, durable and resistant to many of the mishaps suffered by traditional stone countertops. If you're looking for a quality material designed to withstand all conditions, talk to the friendly team at Granite Workshop, who can advise you about all the advantages and properties of Dekton stone benchtops and the other products worth considering.
