Hence, it is considered as one of the most hygienic worktop surfaces for modern homes.

3. Stain Resistant
Due to the non-porous surface, Silestone kitchen worktops are highly resistant to stains.

However, it would help if you wiped off the spillage sooner to avoid any dry staining.

But, generally, Silestone worktop formats are available in two sizes – Standard 55 x 120-inches and jumbo 63 x 128-inches.
